    Just kidding, it's an Epiphone LP-100 with a pickup adapter.

    A couple notes about that adapter. Some sellers say you can put it on top of a regular mounting ring (I didn't). You sort of can, but you need to drill holes through the humbucker ring for the pickup mounting screws . Also, the mounting ring for the single coil is slightly bigger than the humbucker mounting ring, so that may bother some people.

    Interesting. That's an SDS-1, pretty dark by itself. When you mix in the humbucker, but turn its volume down a little, it gets brighter than the bridge pickup by itself. It's dark with the neck volume all the way up. Not sure I understand why it gets brighter, it's like a high-pass filter.
