So, I have an S61AL that I got on a good deal new and was wondering what upgrades (if any) would be good for this guitar? If you have a suggestion please provide a link to the product (exact product) so I can buy it and have it installed. I was thinking the nut for sure, then maybe the bridge--- I don't think there is much else, I like the pickups. Frets could use a little work, which I can have my tech round off a bit or something.

Thoughts?

Why are you wanting to upgrade, and what specifically? This sounds like a modification for the sake of it, which really isn't the best way to go with guitar upgrades/modifications.

Start simple, what about the guitar don't you like/find lacking? Does the guitar stay in tune well, do you like the sound of the pickups, etc? If all of that is okay then why waste time upgrading it?

Indeed, this seems like a pretty high spec guitar - multi-laminate neck, locking tuners, Fishmans, strap locks.

Something worth observing when you buy a new guitar is to live with it as is for a while, then see/decide if it's necessary to change something.
