The PUs are worth more than your guitar! I did that years ago when I was a young teenager. I put DiMarzios (PAF & SD) on a Taro LP.

Set up as in the nut slots probably need to be filed for the larger gauge. The increased tension of the larger strings may have increased your neck relief as well

It's cheaper than a Gibson Studio and has some good appointments and a HS Case. A lot of Trad + owners are very happy with their Epi, that says a lot IMO.

I had no problems intonating my PRS SE 245. I filed the nut for a new set of 10's and used the offset allen screws to push the bridge out and it's fine. I checked with my strobe tuner.

That Studio has been messed with and the gouge out of the fretboard is a turnoff. In the US that guitar was around $900 new (1200 or so in Canada).

Never do this, move the hanger to an inside wall.
