    Pearly Gates Bridge vs Seth Lover Bridge

    In your situation I would have changed the magnet to an UO al5 or an al8 depending on how hot you want it. Done it a couple of times and have been pleased with the results.

    Mods with resale in mind

    One option can be to buy/use something you really lik. If/when you flip the guitar put on something cheap and keep the good stuff

    Greco Pickups

    I have a pair of "screaming" wasn't to happy with the tone as I wanted more of a wintage tone. Changed the bridgepickup magnet to a alnico 8 and the neckpickup magnet to a alnico 4. The pickups got more vintage sounding really quite good. It wasn't either expensive or hard to do. I can really...
