It seemed an interesting way to trade into the greatest guitar I’ve never owned.

I need another Lester. I have a set of pickups for it just hanging out in a drawer. (-:

It will be interesting to see whether you think the stock ones need to be pulled after you play it; I think they sound pretty sweet. So much so, that it's one of the few guitars I've never been tempted to mod the pups in. Never.

These were custom-wound for me years ago. They’re an excellent PAF-style set of pickups. They belong in a nice guitar.

I like the pickups that came in my LP a lot. I really didn’t see a need to swap them out.

We’ll see with the Epi. (-:

I found a new one from a dealer on Reverb so I didn’t have to wait on a restock of Sweetwater.

Now the long wait on body, neck etc.

I don't know how I'm gonna be able to hold up emotionally while reading these threads and waiting 4-5 weeks for my body.

I’ve got two holes to drill in the body and this is ready for paint. I’m also waiting for lower humidity. We’re having a monsoon, right now, thanks to Flo.

I haven’t forgot about ya, Mike. I’m still aiming for the end of Oct. This is one of my #1 project while I’m off work rehabbing.

That and playing a lot of guitar.

I’ve been reorganizing the mancave this weekend in anticipation of lots of playing time. (-:

I'm in no hurry - your Epi Elitist is just sitting here in its case. I get it out once in a while to play it a little, but that's dangerous...makes me wanna keep it.

I haven't been paying close attention - why are you off work rehabbing?

Back surgery next week. I started a thread about it in Moe’s. It’s actually grown to over 100 posts.

Truth be told, I might not keep the Epi. I might liquidate it once I have it. It’s getting muy crowded here. (-:

So, if you want to keep it, we can wheel and deal over something else. Or not. I’m fine any which way. (-;

Nah - let's stick with the original deal. Once you get it and play it a little, you can decide if you need anything besides that nice Les Paul you have!
