And follow-up: Did you buy with the intention of making changes? I’m 3 out of 4 modified. I looked at the wall and at first wondered why I can’t seem to leave well enough alone. But then I realized I sometimes buy with the idea of what they can become. Johnny Hiland: I actually bought this guitar after I found a pair of 53/10 pickups that needed a home. Replaced the 3-way blade with a 5-way for Custom 24 switching. Might still put a MannMade 2000NOS bridge on. McCarty AP: I bought this one for the purpose of having a low-tuned guitar. So I knew I’d replace the pickups. Ended up with a 85/15 + \m/ combo. And I already had a MannMade 2300 intonatable bridge waiting for a home as well. Bingo. CE-22: This was a cool guitar as-is, but had the potential for much more. So I had the PTC go to work on it. Actually kept the VB/HFS pickups tho. But it got a Floyd, paint job, bass cut switch, and gold hardware. McCarty 594: Stock! It’s a Goldtop and the 58/15LTs are perfect, what can I say? So where are you on the “spectrum”? *PS and custom spec counts, you just modified it before it was built.
