Regular pickups into a JS700?
I just picked up a Japanese JS700 in flawless shape. But I am not too hot on the P-90's! What needs to be done so that regular humbuckers can be put into the guitar? I see that some people mentioned that wood needs to be taken out, but is that it?
The work would be done by an experienced luthier that I trust. What concerns me is whether it's possible at all and whether the existing pickups spaces are too big in one direction for humbuckers. I can see how the spaces may need to be widened, but won't there be too much empty space, concerning the height?
