if that were mine and those were actually PAF's and I wasn't thrilled with the guitar, I would put those pickups into something I really love and keep the husk as is (or even rebuild the husk with alternate pickups). my two unsolicited cents...Not sure where I should post this. Just picked up a 58 ES-175. SOmeone offering me 2K for the pups and buttons. Shoul I sell and replace with "aged " new parts ?
