Hey guys.....
I had posted here thinking about getting rid of my Les Paul, but a lot of you had mentioned that maybe it was the electronics and such were what I was not liking about it. So I started thinking about it and thought maybe I would try and upgrade what is in there. What do you all recommend?
What Pickups?
New bridge?
New tuners?
Pots?
Etc.?

Thanks a lot.

Do you like the feel and sound of it when it's not plugged in? If that's the case, maybe swapping parts may work. But if it feels thuddy and dead, then you just might not like the guitar.

Yep, this is an important question.

Th RS premium kit and a new set of Darkburst pickups will help, but if you don't like the tone right now with the guitar stock, you may just be wasting your money on that last 10 - 15% improvement.

:confused:

This is something I have never heard before.
Plus I play in a 2 guitar band, use my R7 almost exclusivly and have no problems.


Anyhow, my opinion is that some WCR's and an RS kit should be considered mandatory on any les paul, it is that good.

i just feel my strat cut through the mix better on solo's, but we dont have a soundman so thats half the problem... I ordered the RS kit tonepro, should be getting it soon, cant wait to see how it helps the volume knobs....theyre so annoying right now....
