A long time friend of mine is a Gibson lp special. And I simply just want to switch out all the nickel plated parts for gold plated parts. (Pickup covers, knob rings, toggle switch, bridge, stop bar. Etc...)
Now I cant afford to buy all gibson made parts. But there are off brand parts that are much cheaper. Can the quality really be considered poor for that price? Like the solid bridge for instance, is just a solid piece of metal, and is not moving, so is that really going to effect anything? Im not buying electronics just cosmetic do-dads.
Now i can see if anything maybe the quality in tuners might make a difference if I bought cheap tuners....maybe even the toggle switch since it is a moving part. It may fail soon after. Or will a cheap toggle switch be just fine? I don't know
What do you guys think?
