Yes.

It's pretty easy for a tech to do it. He has to rip out the shitty PCB that is in there, but it is simple. In all honesty it would probably cost you less if you get new pickups too and do it all together. It is much less messing with solder and and such. I would do it all at once. I would get the 50's wiring version, on your epiphone I think it is metric so you have to get that version of it.

Hmm. We'll see what happens in the next month or two regarding the Marshall, etc.

I'm also enjoying the hell out of that Ibanez hollow body now that my fingers are toughened up. It holds its tuning really well and without an amp sounds really rich. I bet it would benefit from new pups and guts even more than the Epi. I have it tuned double drop D right now to learn Cinnamon Girl on. The open chords really ring with that tuning.

Is there really a difference? I have seen videos that go both ways.

It may be one of those common chinese manufacturing deals where they drift further and further off spec as time goes by so if you have an old chinese one, it will sound the same as a MIJ while a new chinese one might sound different.

i wouldn't know to be honest. Mine is an old chinese version, and I love the way it sounds. Based on a quick look, that's a very good price assuming it's actually a japan version.

I'm thinking of getting a very inexpensive guitar to leave in my office so I can practice at work.

you know that's not how it works.



in any event, think about an acoustic for this. learning chords on an acoustic guitar is really good as it allows you to really hear a lot of the voicings and harmonics.

Try out one of those monoprice ones! The reviews are decent (except for complaints about the low output from the pickups) and the price is right.

Hell, if you replace the pickups in your epiphone, you can move the epiphone pickups to the monoprice.

Or you could get the $88 strat version and see if you really want a strat.

Only problem with the acoustic in the office is the noise. You can play pretty quietly with an electric and headphones.

Yeah, yeah. This is true.

Playing that hollow body a lot partly due to this.

So, just received a 15% off coupon at GC for any one item over $299. It's only good until Monday. If I can scoot by tomorrow I think I'm down for that DSL.

I used to have 50's Les Paul TV Jr hanging in my office to play. I sold that to some musician and then had my ES-5 Blond Switchmaster on the wall . Great conversation pieces.

Well, just got back from my local GC. I was going to buy that Marshall but none in stock and none coming in. So much for a semi-impulse purchase. It also saves me the need to start collecting pedals too.

GAS impulse purchases are always the best.

Agreed. And you nicely had me lined up my first two stomp boxes too. frown.gif
