S1XXV mods

Has anyone modded the S1XXV with new pickups and perhaps refitting neck to body as mine seems to have decent size gap between neck and body.
It seems these would make this an outstanding guitar for the $$
Thoughts anyone?

Re: S1XXV mods

When you say gap, do you mean from a shim?
Mine was without a shim when I had 9s on it.

I put an EVO Neck and an EVO2 Bridge in mine.
I was going to put and EVO single in, but the body is too thin for a thick Dimarzio single coil.
I may put a Fender Texas Special in the middle soon.

Re: S1XXV mods

I was referring to the manufacturing tolerances there is a gap between body and neck where it joins body on sides .I was wondering if an epoxy filler would close this and tighten fit and resonance.
