the quality of a 550 is far better - Epi is good, but Japan is a bit better. look into a few other guitars before you get the Epi. i liked the one Epi i "had", but the key word is "had".
i think the neck and intonation/action might be the only things you would need to adjust for 13's
as far as mods go, new pups (JB/59 Seymour my choice), tone pro bridge, better frets, better tuners... need i go on?
