How can I make my sheraton more awesome?

I want to make my Epiphone Sheraton II sound as close to a Gibson ES-335 as possible. Suggestions?

I was thinking of replacing the pickups with a gibson '57 classic, and a '57 classic plus, as well as adding a Mojo prewired ES-335/3 way boutique assembly and a new bone nut. Am I forgetting anything? Or might there be something that would work better?

I don't have a direct answer, but in case you're not familiar with them, Birds and Moons and The Gear Page are great message boards with some very knowledgeable members.

sell the epiphone, pocket the money you'd spend on pickups etc., and start saving for hte real thing!

Sounds good to me. I doubt you really need the wiring harness, the stock Sheraton wiring is adequate. The Epi bridge is a little rattly and tinny; you might consider changing it out for a heavier, better-quality one.

You doing this yourself or paying someone to do it?

Install better quality capacitors on the tone controls when changing the pickups.
