If she were mine:
1) Duncan Ants
2) RS Guitar Works Vintage '50's Wiring Harness (pots and caps) with a correct switch and jack.
Wire it yourself with a $15 soldering iron from Wal-Mart or Ontario equivalent. You'd have to route out the knob holes a bit (and your new tophats might not fit), but the guitar will rock! Or have MHD pickups get you a custom set if you want something hotter than PAF-type. Rayne/CaptainCoolaid winds some sweet pups.
I think for me Semour Duncans are the way for me to go. I went to the music shop a few months ago, and they handed me a Gibson studio with Burstbuckers in it. I didn't like them.....could be because it was chambered. They had SD59's but without covers.I might start there for real mods as long as the covers are with them, .....but no rush..
