THIS is the guitar i have (except black and about 7 years old) and basically what I want to know is
A - Is there any place that sells NEW pickups for cheap(er) besides ebay?
B - Would it be easier to make my own neck the way I want it or just buy one?
1 - add on to A Is there a place I can buy just like a neck blank that has the fretboard on it already, but is just a block (inexpensive mind you)?
2 - Which one would be cheaper?
C - When I put new pickups on, will I need to replace any of the pots or input wiring to make it sound good?
D - Should I change the body shape a little bit?
This will be my first mod, so any help/suggestions would be welcome and appreciated
edit: Would a Bigsby or some sort of new bridge be too "complex" for a first time?

Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

A. Guitarfetish.com. Pretty good pickups for cheap.
B. Making necks is more or less the hardest part in making guitars. You can get necks from Warmoth, USACG, mostly any place that sells guitar parts. Buying it would be cheaper, since neck-making involves special tools that you'd need to get a half-decent neck.
C. Depends on the wiring you have now.
D. It's up to you.

I guess another thing is that besides routing a bigger hole, would replacing a P90 with a humbucker require anything special? and is it hard to wire in another pickup?
