So, I'm getting an old guitar from a friend. It is a Vintage, 24 fret, set neck, bad electronics, thats all I really know.
The pups are shot, so I need to replace them, and i'm thinking about painting it.

I'll have to rewire the whole thing, too, so what do you think, UG, what crazy things can I do to this new axe?

Tie her up and drive her into some woods, pour petrol over her and then ask her if she wants you back.

The guys in GB&C will be of much more help than the pit.

Unless you want a guitar with a bunch of dicks and memes all over it.

But...this isn't the pit...

If it really is a vintage, don't refinish it unless you don't want the guitar to be worth a damn. Just replace the pickups and don't do anything stupid to it.

why would you want to put the bitrate down?
to make it smaller without hearing any change in quality that the human ear can detect?

pre-wired pickguard sounds like what you want, considering it pretty much needs an overhaul in the wiring/pickup department. That should take care of everything. As far as paint, do whatever your creativity feels like

By 'vintage' I mean Vintage as in the low-mid price range guitar manufacturer, I don't mean A Vintage guitar. I think it may be a V6 or something, but it has no serial number.

Actually, I think it would be interesting to see a guitar with a big dick drawn on it We can let Devries Custom take care of that

Wire a 2-throw-4 pole push/pull so you can have the pickups in series and parallel, also do a push pull for the direct to output mod, also install an EMG afterburner, also install a kill-switch, also install the Torres Engineer tone blending and mid-scoop/boost mod.

Install LEDs under your fret board?

Make it into a version of the Swiss Cheese?

Give it a swirl paint job, put in some wild colored dimarzios, and find one of those LP Floyd Roses on ebay (assuming it's a LP shape as are most vintages I've come across)
