Hey Brian I ws looking at an old post you made on your junior I recently got one used and it has Grover locking tuners on it. I want to get them off asap. I was wondering what yo used, as you mentioned you upgraded with conversion bushings . Also did you get a Mojoaxe wrap tail piece? how did that work out ?

Hey Mat!

Greetings!

I have a very simple question: Does Epiphone have an ACTUAL, PHYSICAL, Custom Shop in Nashville or Overseas?

I am under the impression that they DO NOT have a physical location and that the Epiphone Guitars labeled 'Custom " are made in China with different finishes, pickups, etc.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Amigo,

I saw your name the other day and sent you a 'like', and you sent me one as well. Thanks for that. Nice to see that after all these years you are still 'stirring up shite' on the old LPF. I hope life has been treating you well.

Best,

I have a Gibson Les Paul "Jeff Beck" R4 without the mounting ring cutout for easier string changes... any idea where I can get one?
