OK well i am trying to make my first guitar look a bit cooler...i have a few other guitars and i just wanna make this thing look cool + replace the hum buckers

+first question what are some good humbuckers for more or less lead guitar?
(????PRICE????)

+What are some random accessories i can add to this thing too make it look cool?

+What is the most important thing you can do to a guitar to make it sound better?
(as far as "upgrades" go)

+How much do decals cost?

Hmmm I heard some great things about guitarfetish.com pickups, you should go check them out, there prices are great. As for looks, maybe a different color pickguard? better pots? new knobs, oh and maybe some chrome or gold pickup rings?
