I haven't quite decided yet. I'm not sure I've even been in that Epi ever. I'll be very honest here, and I'll probably make a lot of enemies, but I really never liked Les Pauls. I've always TRIED to like them...honest...but I just don't. I'm a Tele/Strat guy. The only reason I bought it is for pedal development. I figured I'd better have something LP-like kicking around. I really want to put some nicer pickups in it, though I really don't think the stock ones are too terrible. But at a minimum the switch has got to go. What a turd. It was a turd from day one and hasn't gotten better. Yeah, it's not an expensive guitar, but for heaven's sake they could have done a little better there. That's really what pushed me to finally replace the pickups. I figure I'm in there anyhow, so I may as well just do it and get it over with.
