    I am mainly wanting to start off with an intonatable wrap around bridge, what is the cheapest one that I can get away with that is not complete junk? I plan on eventually sanding it completely down and repainting it and gutting all the electronics and putting a new quality pickup, pots, ect into it.

    I just bought 2 a few months ago. Havent touched them since. So I cant report of the quality. Don't remember from where . But they were cheap! :)
    If no one is more helpful remind me to look into it after sat.

    I used this one from guitarheads. I'd recommend it. I wish I kept that LP Special with P90s. Dammit.

    I may have one you could have for the cost of shipping. It came with my Cozart LP.

    I put this GFS Slick brass wraparound on my Epiphone LP SL project. It's very nice and well built. Guitar tech that did the set up on that guitar also liked it. 20% off sale going on now, too.

    Go the cheap route & get the basic lightening bolt wrap & get some locking bolts/studs/posts/whatever the fuck they're called.

    Let's see a pic damnit.

    Play it with poor intonation...
    Kidding!

    Personally I would do the brass Slick bridge because if you're modding you want an awesome result.

    The free + shipping is the other logical choice.

    they should fit any metric guitar tailpiece bushing.

    I've got them on my AD-201 which fixed the sloppy fit of the Faber bridge in the stock Agile studs

    Good deal, I assume my bushing is metric on the epiphone?

    yes, pretty much the only guitars I ever see with SAE bushings are Made in USA stuff.

    The reason I mentioned them is on the guitars I bought them for it seems to have helped the sustain. My Firebird had the poor tilt thing going on which I associated with the kind of dull ringing when playing. I bought those to help & it did. Could just be that guitar.
