    Pickups - Entwistle HDN.

    Couldn't say (from experience) which tuners to go to, the only non-stock I've swapped out/fitted are Wilkinson E-Z lock which worked well enough. Most should be an improvement on the stock ones, but get the nut checked - just in case the strings are binding there and causing some tuning issues.

    Depends on the tone you're after. It's a pseudo mahogany, so something a little brighter for balance. I prefer PAF Pros for that kinda guitar. Tuners, just get some Gotohs.

    Would help if we knew what sound you were going for, and your budget.

    I've got SD P-Rails in my Epi LP, and it came stock with locking tuners. I wanted to get some P90 tones with this one, while retaining the ability to get a HB.

    On my USA LP, I've got a BKP Rebel Yell (with a MissQueen neck), and PlanetWaves AutoTrim tuners.
