better would be search on the net for some used pickups...You could get a Decent pair of humbuckers for around 6k. Or may be single coils for around 5k in very good condition.
Why dont u just go ahead and buy a Yamaha pacifica instead..Definitely the wood on yamaha is better than Givson. Even the neck for that matter will be superior...You could get a DECENT used Yamaha pacifica 112J for 10K. I saw this add a few days ago on facebook...
I am aware that the idea of building the guitar from scratch or rebuilding somethng is really kickin..but then its not worth spending in your case unless you are way too tight on ur budget...
HUGE USED market out there....Just find the right opportunity to grab a good stuff around!!!!
