Voting for March 2020's Guitar Of The Month is open - VOTE HERE!

Recommended Posts

G'day everyone,

I'm new, as you can tell by my topic title. An old work colleague comes on here all the time and has built a few guitars in the past, and he's sent me across here to learn and participate.

I am about to embark on my first ever build. It should be interesting indeed. Before I fill you in, my set up currently includes: Vox AC30, Gibson SG (61 reissue), Signature series Fender Telecaster (1995), and a bunch of pedals... and this old girl, who is going to be my first victim.

She's an old school Epiphone LP-300 - the cheapo Les Pauls that pre-dated the LP-100. She was my first guitar and has sat dormant for over 15 years.

So what's the plan? Complete ground up build, including:

  • Active pickups (looking at a set of 60/81 EMG)
  • Bigsby temolo
  • New Wiring
  • Re-finish
  • New machine heads
  • New bridge etc

Stay tuned. I would love some advice, and will hopefully become a regular on here and keep you all updated, often.

Cheers
