Sounds like you are using incorrect settings on the amp you are using. Try all tone controls at 12 o'clock as a start. Excess bass boost is a good way to have the problem occur. Also back off the volume control. "Handling" noise or scratching from handling the guitar is NORMAL for this type pickup. Back down the volume and DO NOT boost the highs or lows to help with the handling noise problem.

What Epiphone model did I purchase?


Sounds like perhaps a Les Paul Special II, but more detail is needed to say for sure. There was a lot of variation in their Les Paul models. Posting a photo of both sides and the headstock is best.

-Has the guitar any binding, and what colour?
-Is the back of the guitar white or all black?
-Exactly what is on the front of the headstock, 'Epiphone', the 4-diamond logo, anything else?

Cant get the buzz out of the high E string on my Epiphone les paul guitar


A buzz on one string is not due to a pickup fault. It's rather a too low string height at the nut or a string slot that is either too wide or has too deep of an angle towards the tuner. It could however be that you had the pickup too close to the high E string creating excessive string pull.

I have an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Silverburst, and it's pretty new and has worked great until now. It seems my bridge pickup lost tone and volume for some reason. My volume and tone knobs are cranked...


Need more info: 1- does the volume control still change the level? 2-Does tone control still change the tone? 3- What happens when in the center position on pickup select switch? Put pickup switch in center position (both pickups active). Then take a coin and tap on the pickups. Does bridge pickup sound lower? Lastly remove rear electronics cover and inspect all wiring for something loose or disconnected.

Can the epiphone p/ups be changed to gibson's, is it worth it ?


Yes, the pickups can be changed.

However; In my opinion this is not worth it. Pick up a pair of aftermarket pickups for a better sound that will fit your playing style.

Minimal to no bridge


Sounds like you have some microphonic pickups. Only thing to do is replace them. This would be caused by the guitar being hit against something or being dropped.

Epiphone volume and tone controls


The controls should be setup in pairs (as long as the electronics haven't been modified. The two closest to the pickups are the volumes and the other two are the tone controls. The top knob set should be your neck pickup and the bottom set is for the bridge.
