Hi Here

I have buyed some years ago an €piphone Les Paul studio, ebony, all stock, i play with since years, i have buyed some other axe, but this one always come back in my hand.

So i take the decision to upgrade it:

New Nut
New pickups (seymour Duncan Alnico II Slash)
New pots & caps (CTS & orange drop)
Neck tuning (flatening & curve, frets height etc)
I have spend 6 hours around it, use specialized tool and learn how to tune the neck !

Now the axe is like a brand new for me, play fast, sound like hell, the string action is gone from a good 1,5mm to a little 1mm !

Hi Laurent,

Do you think you could share some old records made with the axe in its old version and new records with the upgrade, just to compare?

and the new pickups, i have done this dirty one, almost the same track

it's not the best preset to fell the difference
