Okay guys, I'm really pissed off with people having the same guitar ... everyone in my school has a SG, Les Paul or Strat (copies mostly) so I bought a Les Paul Junior ... but someone saw it and went out and bought one ... now im pissed! So, I want to make a signature based on the Les Paul Junior ... any idea how I would go about this?

coil tapping= a wiring method where you can switch between humbucking and single coil sounds.
Quote by forsaknazrael
You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

Would that not be coil splitting?

I agree on painting it. Although if you want it to stand out, you'd most likely have to do something really complex, like Clapton's SG:
http://www.celebrityrockstarguitars.com/rock/clapton_files/ClaptonFool.jpg

Or you'd have to make it look awful, or just ruin your guitar, like Eddie Van Halen's Frankenstrat.

As for anything else, I'd change the pickups to something really posh (I'd look at the Seymour Duncan P-Rails - That's what I'm having in my next guitar), rewire everything etc. - Maybe add a killswitch?

However, if you don't know what coil tapping is, chances are you'd have to learn a hell of a lot more about electronics, guitar electronics etc. before you attemped anything.


And if it hasn't been said yet, the thing that should make you stand out more than anything, isn't the guitar itself, it's how well you play the guitar. I mean, for music GCSE I've recorded a bunch of stuff for people with my Jackson Kelly, and nobody actually thought I was any good at guitar at all until I recorded some improvised solos and showed that I really can play guitar.

you used to be named LIAM

im sure you got blocked or something and made a new name to ask questions about this lp junior youre so pissed about.

just paint it, then light it on fire, then buy a new one from rondomusic.
#13
Like a few hours ago you wanted to buy the whole Epi goth set and you said nothing about disliking how your LP Jr is.

anyway, paintjob.
Route a single-coil routing at the neck, it's rare to see HS guitars, let alone HS LP Jrs.
Maybe a maple neck? (Probably difficult assuming it's set neck)
A few electrics mods (blend pot?)
#14
can you tell me what you mean by "every one at school" and "saw your guitar"

i say build your own guitar... see how many people are gonna devote to that

All that theory my guitar teacher tries to drill into my head just gets buried under piles of porn and I never manage to apply any of it
#15
Tbh, someone may have copied you by buying an LP JR, but you've copied someone else - it's just that they're not at school with you.

It's a guitar, and you have to be comfortable with it.. who cares if someone else has the same model?
#16
put a "direct out" switch on it. basically, it redirects your guitar's signal directly to the output jack. it has a more raw tone to it. and, if you turn your volume completely off, KILLSWITCH!!!!!1!!!!

wow how old are you exactly? Who cares if everyone at school has similar guitars. Your playing is what should matter. Let's say you have a very unique guitar like a double neck but your playing is crap, that's like having a Bentley but you don't know how to drive, whats the effing point. There is a reason why Les Pauls, Stratocasters, Telecasters, and other classic models are so popular, THEY ARE GOOD GUITARS. If they were bad guitars they wouldn't stand the test of time.

If your ego is that big that you think because someone has the same guitar as you they are instantly stealing every last piece of your originality then maybe you should question why you started playing guitar in the first place.

And as for mods, EMG then paint it cherry green.

Also, if you're so concerned about having your own opinion and image, why are you asking for ideas on an internet forum?

Think for yourself.

I suppose if you walk around school with your guitar strapped to your back and no gig bag, then everyone is going to see it. I see that sometimes when I drive by the local high school here... I always think either that guy needs a gig bag, or he's just hoping someone will compliment him on his guitar.

even if u have the finest guitar in the land, no one cares unless you can play it. a great guitarist will make a crappy guitar sound unbelievable....focus on ur playing and sound rather than appearance
#34
i know!

develop a shape of your own that nobody else has, thus allowing you to be original.

stop whining about what guitar yyou play and start worrying about how you play it.

it's in the player's hands to make a guitar sound good.

no pun intended.
