BigO, your epiphone, if it has the stock hardware, has about the cheapest components known to man. When I bought my epiphone les paul custom, the first thing I did was rip out all the hardware and replace it with SwitchCraft hardware. Its not hard, and your guitar will sound tons better.
Yes, it's all stock, and you are completely right about the crappy quality. I love the body and the neck, the action is fine, and the intonation isn't perfect but it's really not that bad. My only real complaint is the electronics so I'll get around to gutting it eventually.
