1968 Gibson Trini Lopez - Pick ups swap

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I m new to the forum but and I have a question for you. 

I recently ( a few months ago) bought a 1968 Gibson Trini Lopez . Guitar seems in good shape, mostly original . The pick ups however have obviously been removed at some point. One is a Patent number and the other seems to be also one but the label is gone so I can't really tell for sure. No way to tell for sure if they are the original pick ups to the guitar.

I have been teasing the idea, since pick ups were already removed at some point, to swamp them for a pair of TV Jones Classics.  Do you have any input regarding this? Good idea? Bad idea? other pick ups suggestions?  I m not really worried about the guitar losing value because : 1) I don't intend to sell it anytime soon and, 2) Pick ups have already been detached at some point.   

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.  I have attached a few pics for reference. 

Thanks guys.

Sounds like a fine idea - as you say, you won't lose anything by doing it - but please rewire the new ones in better than the one in your 1st pic!!![omg]
