You're going to have some issues putting actives in a semi-hollow guitar. Not really any place to put the battery. I'd go passive, or get a guitar with actives already in it (or at least space for...

Looks like an Epi Standard to me (note, the "Standard" is on the truss rod cover, not on the headstock itself). $270 US isn't too far off of the pricing where I'm at for used Epis with a horrible...

The new Variax Standard has the same electronics as the James Tyler guitars, just in a bit cheaper guitar body (Yamaha Pacifica more or less). I got one of those recently, works great for a pretty...

Or you can just get the 10-15% off by asking them for it with no trade in or waiting for one of their 10-15% off "sales". Trade in is still a loss really.

Pretty much anything cheap would be good. Even if it's not terrible to start with, doing a fret level and new nut (or whatever you had in mind) would still give you experience.

Given the dimensions of the mounting rings, I'm going to say "no". Filtertrons appear to be about 1cm larger than a mini-humbucker in both width and height.

Pretty sure I see a black wire that isn't soldered to anything in the first picture. That might be the missing ground which is causing all the electrical hum.

I had good luck with Tru-Oil as a finish. Easy to apply and looked good even without final sanding.

I'd also recommend the Seymour Duncan Hotrodded Humbucker set (SH4/SH2) pickups.
