I have this cheap beginner Ibanez and I want to do something with it. I'm thinking about new pickups, new finish, and some other not-to-hard mods.

Any ideas?
som duncans in there would probably kick it up a notch, or 2

well actually it's got a swimming pool type routing, so I could mess around with it by changing the pickguard or cutting it up.
