I had a Tex-Mex set in one of my strats. Definitely a step up from the ceramic pups that come stock in MIMs. For about the same money you can pick up a used set if MIA standard pickups on ebay,...

Aside from the structural and cosmetic issues, 1973 isn't exactly considered a banner year for Gibson. I would consider what you are looking at more like just an old guitar, certainly not "vintage"...

If the truss rod has a nut on it (like a Gibson), you might take the nut off and add some washers so you don't come to the end of the thread. You may want to lube the threads too. Whatever you do,...

SRV used 13s and sometimes even thicker. You'll have to set it up for heavier strings (relief, nut, trem), but the guitar is probably more capable of handling fat strings than your fingers.

I'm not sure I understand.... an independent volume pot? Do you mean a master volume and master tone that controls both pickups?

It could be a repetitive injury such as carpal tunnel, but definitely not the sort of thing us guitar geeks are qualified to diagnose. You really need to see a doctor about it. If your doctor is...

Very nice! I like their approach to guitar building, treating each instrument as a unique piece rather than just stamping out a bunch of clones.

Those are Gibson mini-humbuckers, probably added in the '70s. It looks like the bridge plate was chopped to make the bridge pickup fit. It is a strange configuration, and hurts the value,...

Take it to a good tech. I doubt there is anything serious... sounds like maybe a high fret or two and just a good set-up.

Perhaps an unconventional way to string a guitar, but I think MrFibble is correct regarding the angle at the nut... much less likely to cause tuning problems.

No they don't have to be equal. In fact most people set the action with the treble strings slightly lower than the bass strings. If it plays the way you like, you've got it right.
