Guys, I'm considering changing the humbucker pick-up in my Yamaha Pacifica to a single coil (probably Lace Sensor Gold) to basically make it into a strat.
Is it just a case of taking out the humbucker and throwing in the new SC pup, or do I need to worrry about electrics and whatnot.
Anything else I need to worry about???

You'd need a new pickguard too.

a single coil pickup can't fit into the humbucker slot. in case you didnt notice, the humbucker is larger. unless you get a humbucker-sized single coil, you gotta get a new pickguard.

The purpose of replacing the pickguard is to cover the hole left by the wider humbucker, right?

Exacly - you *can* get humbucker sized enclosures for singles but they look kind of ugly to me.
