I have an Epiphone LP-100 Electric Guitar and wanted to know if it’s possible to replace the pickups on it with Seymour Duncan pickups? Instead of throwing it away or blowing it up I rather try to make something out of it.

yes it is indeed possible

(heh beat anyone else to it laugh.gif)

this sounds abit vague if you understand me, you just want to put Seymour Duncan pickups on how bout the other lovely companies?
anyway it is quite easy to replace pickups so yeah it is possible to replace the pickups on it, but you need to get the right size coz there are Fspaced ones and non-F spaced ones and i think for LP you want a non F spaced one correct me if im wrong. Also it loooks like they got normal humbuckers,so i wouldnt go buying a seymour duncan soapbar or whatnot smile.gif

thanks
Kevin

My playing style is blues, rock and heavy rock. I love the sound of jimmy pages (main guitar) and trying to get close to that sound as much as possible. Anyone know any pick ups that would match that profile?

LP-100 huh, it has the P90's right? I have a friend with one of those if I remember well. I don't think you can squeeze a humbucker in there without some routing, but I could be wrong.

Either way, P-90's are so much rock and roll I'd keep it for sure. If the Epi P90's don't cut it, get a couple of hotter P90's to put in. Check out the brand pickups like SD and DiMarzio to see what they can offer.

A most versatile and most commonly used SD humbucker combo is jazz or '59 in the neck and JB in the bridge. If you tell us what style you're in, we can maybe give you some customized picture.

I'd save up for a better guitar. It's hard to get a jimmy page tone. He uses amazing quality guitars from many companys when in studio. Gibsons are such quality instruments that it's hard to find something as good. AND he has a special pickup system. It's called Pagebucker It's basically a very versatile push-pull system. I'd grab some Gibson 57' Classics. A 57' Classic in the Neck and a 57' Classic Plus in the bridge.

I have an old Epiphone as well, and have been thinking about upgrading it a lot so I'll use it again biggrin.gif
Don't know what though, but I'll probably change the pickups and tuners..
