IMG_2047 by HolyTele Tube posted Mar 29, 2018 at 6:02 PM I made the mistake this weekend of cleaning out my junk drawer. I found a full set of sealed imperial style tuners, a few Gibson size bone nuts, a switchcraft SG style toggle switch, and a switchcraft output jack. When I started looking at the parts I realized that when they are put together they would go a long way toward fixing many of the complaints about the Epiphone SL. I contacted the fine folks at Bootstrap pickups and they are winding me a new set of pups for the guitar. I asked for a strat neck and tele bridge in standard pickup dimensions. They were happy to accommodate and suggested putting a copper clad bottom plate in the bridge pup. I also ordered a set of tone pros locking studs for the tailpiece. I have found that it's pretty hard to intonate a guitar if the bridge leans forward. All in all I plan to: Install a new nut, add new tuners, replace the bridge posts, relocate the output jack, level and crown the frets, replace the electronics, and shield the cavity. I know that I'm shelling out about another 100 dollars and raiding my parts drawer for more on top of that and it won't increase the value but I think it will be a fun project and ought to make a pretty good player in the end.
