Columbus Les Paul Copy
I am looking to upgrade this 1970's Japanese low end of the market guitar, it is a very nice looking black beast with nice white binding. Tuners (3+3) need changing - need to fit 8 mm diameter holes in headstock with about 1 and one eigth inch shaft on the tuner. A new nut would probably help - graphtech?
Any advice ref Humbuckers? Action high, but no more adjustment in Tune -o - matic type bridge. Has plastic saddles - are these OK or would it be best to change. Smaller bridge than the Gibson.
The intonation ismiles out and won't adjust - any reason for that. Strings are very old - could that be a reason. Will fit new strings but I always like to evaluate what I am going to do before I remove old strings.
Any advice will be welcome
