Les paul renovation

Ok, well about a year ago I bought this epi les paul. It was pretty plain. Well I have decided to change that. I have bought new pickups, pickguard, knobs, switch, and tuners. So as I get the parts I will update this thread. I think this will be fun.

Heres the old one.

Looks cool. I would have gone more for an amber switch tip. I also would have left the pickguard off, but that's personal preference.

Re: Les paul renovation

The tuners have a story too. Ron Ravenscroft, a musician/conductor, had them replaced off of a les paul. He used to play with zappa. I got the tuners from my tech for $25!!!!
