    Can you identify these Epiphone Pickups?

    Hello. I recently purchase a Fender Jazzmaster HH and when I looked under the pickguard the pickups had been swapped for some Epiphone ones. Can anyone help me identify the year or model pickups? These pickups have a brass colored back with the Epiphone logo engraved in them. The logo is not...

    Lace Pickup Replacement Wiring Issue

    Hey everyone, This is my first thread but I need some help. I have a 2014 (?) Silverburst Epiphone Les Paul and finally got around to swapping out the pickups. I play and write mostly sludge/doom metal, so I decided on Matt Pike's Signature Lace Dirty Heshers pickups as my upgrade...

    Question, re: pickups on Riviera P93

    Hi all, I've only been playing guitar for just over a year. Beyond the basics, they can still be a bit of a mystery to me, a former drummer and keyboard player. My one and only guitar is a used Riviera P93. For those who don't know, this model has three (as the name implies) P90 pickups --...

    ES-175 pickups 57CH(G) - upgrade?

    Hi Folks, I have a 2009 ES-175 with the standard 57CH(G) pickups. Considering that these only sell for $20-30 each, they don't seem to be that great as stock pickups. What would be an upgrade to be closer to the original ES-175 sound? Something that is best for the best clean tones? There are...

    Single-conductor PUs on Epiphone Les Paul?

    Hi Guys. I just bought my Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro just a few months ago. Now today I bought new Pickups, the Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Slash. The PUs are Single-conductor Pickups. That alone would be no big deal. The problem is that the Pots look different than most you find...

    DOWNSIZING Without Sacrificing TONE

    I recently designed and routed this Headless Wonder out of a mahogany slab. It is similar to the Traveler Guitars that I have bought in the past. The Travelers are great and are well worth the investment if you are looking for portability and ease of toting a (full scale neck) guitar around...

    Hi there, So i got my LP SL, and I decided to mod the hell out of this guitar, but i actually never modded a guitar before.

    Epiphone SG solder-less pickup installation issue.

    While I am not fully convinced the issue isn't just my poor soldering attempts, i have some inquiries to roll some things out before making more purchases. The overall plan was to replace my two humbucking pickups with an EMG H4 (and eventually H4 a) passive pickup in a stock Epiphone SG (year...

    Newbie - Pickup position question

    Greetings all. Fist time poster. I'm in my 50's and have played off and on since the 6th grade. I guess I would consider myself an early intermediate? I know bunches of chords, can do some finger picking, pretty good at strumming but not much of a lead player. I recently purchased a ES-335...
