Mods to My LP Studio


Vega1

Recommended Posts

Bought this Iced Tea burst LP Studio Deluxe 50's in February and planned these mods all along. Finally got them done and I am so happy. Words can't express how happy I am with this guitar in general... playability, sound, looks, quality. Just awesome. And now with the mods its just perfect for me. Love it!! [love]

 

So I thought I'd share, sorry for the poor photography, it really doesn't do it justice. Original on the left, with new mods on the right. I added p/u covers and changed the white trim to black. Just so happy. [cool]

Hello BigKahune,

Nice looking guitar, I too like the changes. How do you like that model? Does it have a good 50's style neck? Considering getting one for myself.

Thanks and good luck with it!

I like it very much actually. When I bought it in February I played over a dozen different LP models including Studios, Standards, and a Classic Custom. I like the 50's neck very much, really comfortable to play and I preferred it immediately over the 60's necks. The baked maple fretboard is great, no issues with it at all. I also really like the coil taps as well, provides some really nice versatility.

 

So yes, while I would recommend anyone go and play one before buying if possible, (the difference between even the same models was drastic) I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone. Based on the fit & finish, sound, playability, versatility, price, looks... this was a fantastic purchase for me and I have no buyers remorse whatsoever. My only issue was the lack of pickup covers and white plastic trim (which I hate), and now that's fixed. [thumbup]

May have to get me one and do some of your changes!
