Considering doing this to mine.
Anyone done it? If so, please post some pictures :)

Not exactly. I did get rid of the flubby (in my opinion) lace pickups and replaced the with a SD Full Shred neck and an Axesrus Purist humbucker bridge which are a huge improvement. Both have chrome pickup covers. I think it looks great, a little different but not obtrusive. Before those, I tested a Pearly Gate ser in distressed nickel (a surprising but huge tonal disappointment) but they looked amazing. I did not change anything else.

I’ll post some pics shortly.

Thank you. If I can’t sell at a price I am happy with, I might go that route with some aged hardware :)
