Good Morning All,
This guitar is a great project, and has been in my stable for quite a few years.

This guitar was always intended as a players guitar.
I had this Epi Les Paul customized by Andrew Olson. He did a fantastic job on setting the harmonica bridge, and the custom tail piece. He also did the super clean electrical & shielding work. This guitar features:
Complete Tiger wiring.
Brass nut.
Harmonica Bridge.
Brass Stop Tail.
Easily accessible Battery box.
Brass knobs (may be custom)
Custom Switch Plate & Pickup Ring.
Rosewood spacers for the SDS-1
Strat-style 5 position Switch
Dimarzio Super 2's & SDS-1
Waldo Buffer.
PEC Pots & State Electronics Modpot.
Schaller black StrapLock thingies.

It's black, so the finish shows minor abrasions like crazy. I was always going to put a Stealie over the LP switch hole.
Great guitar that should be played.
More than $1500 invested. I'd like to get $1200, but feel free to make an offer.

Feel free to PM me for more information.
p.s ~ The original output jack is dormant.

Bump $900. OBO
~ Gotta get a side project financed.

Just add your sticky Stealie to the switch hole in the upper bout, and you'll be thrilled.

that black beauty looks awsome.i have an epi tribute plus with gib 57'classics pups and other gibson parts,its great for the vintage rnr sound.i would not do any mods to it.but looking at this,you have inspired me to get the custom black beauty and go to work on it seems to be a good guitar to make a "tiger"out of.thanks
