As long as you do a clean install of the pickups and keep the originals (so you can revert it back to orig specs), you'll be fine. Also, it is an SG Special not a Les Paul Black Beauty. Specials get mod'd all of the time.

I modded my faded and put a mid 70s t-top pickup in it and I am glad I did. If you don't like the way the pickups sound you can always put it back to stock, but I wouldn't worry about the value of a special too much since they don't really bring in a lot to begin with.
