My new project axe - The UV that never was?

Hey guys, last year was a tragic one. *My favorite guitar (along with a bunch of others) was stolen. *It was a UV7BK. *Well, thanx to Jemsite I found and bought another one. *It was in kind of rough cosmetic shape but still plays beautifully. *Well, after realizing that because it is not "my" UV7BK and I have no emotional attachment to this one, plus it needs refinishing, I had this thought.
What if I made it into a.....
I love the look of the shocking pink jem and thought I would do my UV up like that. *Here is the plan (but it'll probably change)
Of course shocking pink body colour and headstock,
I'll probably retain the green pickups as I don't think I can get Blaze pickups in pink.
I'll be putting a monkey grip into it and possibly a 7 string lions claw.
If time and funds allow, I would like to put in a vine inlay (I guess that would make it a UV777VSK?)
I thought about a UV777DY too but I've already got a Jem777DY so I don't really need 2 yellow guitars. *
What do you guys think?

You can most definitely order Blaze pickups in pink... *or any other color you feel like having.
