        It all depends on how you view a guitar. If it is a tool to make music then what ever modifications you need to get the job done are perfectly fine. If you for whatever reason believe a guitar is an investment like gold or silver anything you do to that guitar that changes it from the way it left the factory is unacceptable.
        Theres only two kinds of music HEAVY and METAL!!!!!

                I know a guy who back in the 70's routed out a '62 strat for humbuckers.

                I did that with my 68 Strat. That's pretty much what you had to do back then if you wanted a decent whammy and humbuckers.

                  A guitar is a tool for making music. Any modification that someone does to their instrument that makes it more suited to that task (for them!) is an improvement; I might not think it would be an improvement for me, but if it's not my guitar, it's not my problem. Purely cosmetic modifications seem a little silly to me, like painting a crescent wrench or something, but who am I to complain about the color of someone else's crescent wrench?

                  The only blasphemous thing you can do to a guitar is not play it.

                  Totally agree with this.

                    I think a humbucker-sized pickup at any position on a stratocaster is just plain wrong on several levels

                    Yeah, that young whipper snapper "Eddy Ven Hailan" or what ever his name is was way off his rocker huh.

                      They aren't ancient holy artifacts or anything so I don't think there's really any such thing as a blasphemous mod to a guitar. Unless there was something special about the guitar like it belonged to Jimi Hendrix or Chet Atkins or something.
                      You're welcome here if you're of the spirit to make a sound.

                          In the mid 70's I modded a Gibson Les Paul "Black Beauty" to shoot sparks and smoke just like Ace Frehley's. Let me tell you... It messed up the guitar

                          Then there is this:

                          In the mid 70's I modded not one but two Gibson Les Paul's because I read that John McLaughlin played a scalloped fingerboard so I went at a 1975 Les Paul Artisan with a dremel tool and really messed up the neck. Since I was unhappy with the outcome after a few months I decided to do the same thing to a 1973 Les Paul Recording model that I picked up at a Pawn Shop...

                          Young and dumb comes to mind now but back in those days these guitars were cheap!

                              Ask Bbreaker...back then, they didn't know what they had We have an awesome vintage shop here in Northern VA where I've actually seen a '59 Junior routed out and fitted with a Dimarzio super distortion ;(

                              In the late '70s, when I first started playing, I had an SG Junior (don't know the year) that had a P90. I removed it and routed the body for a Dimarzio super distortion.

                              The guitar was later stolen, so maybe that was a dope slap from karma.
