could u take this guitar here and swap the pickups or are the mini-humbuckers smaller and it wont fit regular ones? just curious

u have to take out the existing pickups, rout out more wood, and then put the regular ones in.

so in short, no. you need special tools.

I thought the pickups lacked a bit of the depth of some of their full size counterparts. They were very crisp though, and dealt well with many classic rock sounds.

As far as the guitar goes, I wouldn't mess with it unless you want the sound associated with the mini-bucks. It'll be easier (and about the same price in the long run) to just buy a Les Paul standard. May I suggest looking into the Vintage Mahogany model: dirt cheap, and fantastic pickups (even if it isn't nearly as pretty as a standard).
