One of the guitars that I have in mind in getting is the Epiphone Les Paul Custom, here:

I'm planning on getting it in Ebony. Now, to customize it, I'd switch out the stock pickups and put in an SH 6 on the bridge and possibly on neck, though I may go for the JB Model on the neck, shown here:

Then, cover them with this, if I feel like it:

Next, I'd take out the gold bridge & tailpiece and replace them with this:

Next, some black strap locks:

And finally, six black tuners:

In the end, it should be completely black, which I like. Tell me what you think.

Thanks. I'm horrible with this stuff, but I got a great guy who works on both of my current guitars for a great price, so hopefully he can help. It's not too complicated, but I sure don't want to screw up my new guitar!

What do you think of the pickups I'm using? I'm going for an alternative/punk/pop punk sound, similar to Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Paramore, etc.

those should work for the alt punk sound. but you could get an Agile for less. Then you could mess around more. plus it's ebony fretboard with abalone inlays

Poor choice really...Duncan Custom in the bridge, 59 in the neck would be a much better idea.
Actually called Mark!

By Duncan Custom do you mean the SH 4 or the SH 5?
