My Tribute+ has an actual maple cap. Doesn't have a nitro finish, but I personally think that nitro finishes are overrated.

My two current go-to guitars are my 2013 Epiphone Tribute+ and 2013...

Looks legit. 2007 Studio. No reason to think the pickups aren't what you said, but they might be a different SD model than that. SH4/SH2 are a common combination. But they look like legit SD...

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.

You can do it with the height adjustments, but that will basically mean the 57 will end up with a low output compared to "normal" humbucker setups. Might make a difference in it's sound through the...

Yeah, you can do that. Or spend a few more bucks and replace the pots and other wiring too. Then you don't need to worry about the connector.

My HD500 has worked great for me.

I like the Line 6 HD500 "pedal" and UX1 and 2 interfaces I have, though another guitarist I know didn't like the HD500. Difference in taste and/or ability to hear stuff I suppose.
