FS: Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul and Epiphone SG G400 (Both upgraded)
I've decided to thin out the guitar collection a bit so here goes:
Epiphone Zakk Wylde Buzzsaw Les Paul + Hiscox Hardcase:
The guitar itself is in excellent condition and sounds awesome. It is very minor surface scratches on the back, but only noticeable if you shine the light across in at a certain angle.
This guitar has been heavily upgraded with the following:
Pickups changed to Active EMG 81/85
Pots changed to CGE branded and Orange Drop Caps
Toggle switch changed for a switchcraft switch as used in Gibsons
Output Jack changed for switchcraft as used in Gibsons
EMG 18V mod - Pickups run on 2x 9V batteries to get more clarity
Nut swapped for a Tusq nut
Bridge and Tailpiece changed for Gotoh branded
Full set up including Fret leveling and dressing by Neil at Soundcontrol in Newcastle
Includes a mint condition Hiscox Les Paul hardcase
I'll throw in some plectrums, a leather strap and a used guitar stand if you can collect the guitar. I will put a brand new set of Elixir 10-46 strings on the guitar. Price: £575 collected from Newcastle or Peterborough, or £600 posted. I would much prefer collection. Payment is cash on collection or paypal gift if you want it posted.
Epiphone G400 SG:
This guitar is in good condition, but has 2 or 3 noticeable knocks. 1 tiny chip on the top of the headstock, and 2 dings on the front of the body where your right arm is whilst playing. 1 is about an inch long crack, and the other is a dent about 0.5cm diameter. Note these are only cosmetic dings, there is no damage to the wood itself. There are some minor dints on the back, but again you can only notice these if you shine the light across it at a certain angle. There are also surfaces scratches on the pickguard.
I took off the Rhythm/Treble ring around the pickup selector switch, but I can put it back if you want. I also managed to misplace the chrome switch nut when changing the switch, so it currently has a gold one. But you can get these for less than £1 if you want to swap it for a chrome one.
This guitar has been upgraded quite significantly:
Pickups changed for Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz set
Pots changed for CTS 500k with Orange Drop caps.
Toggle switch and output jack changed for switchcraft as used in Gibsons.
Completely rewired with Gibson braided wire.
Nut replaced with a hand cut nut by Jon Haire in Peterborough.
This is a great guitar if you arent too bothered about a few cosmetic dings. The epiphones are great guitars but let down by cheap electronics, which as mentioned have all been replaced on these guitars. Price: £225 collected from Newcastle or Peterborough, £250 posted. Collection preffered as there is no case with this one. I will through in some plecs and a nylon strap, and a used guitar stand if you collect. I will put a brand new set of Elixir 10-46 strings on the guitar.
