I dropped in a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and a Pearly Gates in the neck. Gotoh Tune-O-Matic and tailpiece came with it.

It arrived with the tailpiece on already. I did change out the heavier stock tailpiece on my Gibson LP Classic for a Gotoh aluminum one and it is brighter.

Very nice. I'm usually not a fan of LP's unless they're black, white or goldtop but that one you got there is class.
