The addition of proper PAF's would cost about the same as the value of the guitar would increase.

+1 to that comment

If the PUs in there are good, enjoy them and the guitar the way it is. If you're looking to upgrade the sound, some of the boutique PUs (Throbaks, OX4, SD Antiquities, etc.) are actually truer to the "holy grail" sound that PAFs are legendary for, than some actual legit PAFs! There was a lot of variation in the manufacturing specs in those days and consistency is rare.
