Title says it all, i had around 600 to spend and just made a best offer on this guy for 300 and won. so now i have 300 or so left to upgrade the shit out of it. first off, what pups would be good? i like bkp's but not the price of them. maybe an emg 57-7/66-7 set? i will also be upgrading the tuners, and possibly putting new hardware on it. any ideas?

Awesome! Get a used set of whatever you want pickups (skip the actives if you're not up for wiring a whole new set of electronics in yourself) and see how the tuners do before you bother upgrading them. You may find the bridge or nut to be in more need.
