Not sure if this will be well received or looked down upon but... Last year I bought a Riviera p93 (made in 2009) with a broken neck, for really cheap. The neck is fixed, no problem there - but the dogear pickups didn't sound great to me and most importantly I kept hitting the middle pickup with my pick constantly! I didn't feel I could resell the guitar due to the formerly broken neck, but couldn't really use it as-is either so it sat in the closet all year. Finally I removed the pickups and wiring harness, redid the switching/wiring and custom made a plate from pick-guard material to mount two new filter-tron style pickups to. This plate served the dual purpose of letting me mount different pickup types while also covering up the gaps on the sides from the extra long dogear pickups, and covering the gaping hole left by the now absent middle pickup. The guitar now sounds great, feels great and I can play it! I'm really happy with the way it looks sounds and plays now.
