Not What I Ordered

I decided to fix up an old Epiphone Les Paul Special II (Adam’s first guitar).  Nothing super special or difficult. I am just going to replace the wiring, sound and tone pots (Potentiometers)1, and pickups2. I am also going to cover all the cavities where the electronics sit with copper tape to protect against interference. So I bought some copper tape off of eBay with which to cover the cavities.

As you can see from a screenshot of my order above I ordered 3m of 50mm wide tape. I thought it was a great deal for $0.99. It was going to take a little while to get here but that was fine because I’m not in a hurry to finish this thing.

The photos below are what I actually received.

Ahem, mooncake815 this isn’t 3 meters worth of tape. This isn’t really going to prevent much interference. 🙂

Yes I have asked for a refund of my $0.99 from eBay.

  1. I ordered the Premium Wiring Kit from StewMac which will be an upgrade for the Special II []
  2. I plan on replacing the cheap Special II pickups with Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz Set Electric Guitar Electronics []
