Will this give me the sound I seek?

    Sound: Tight, growley, compressed bottom. I love it! :cool:

    Sound I want: Huge uncompressed BOOM! :D

    Can I get both? What part of the sound comes from the wood, and what from the pickups?

    I am thinking about putting a couple MM Pickups in it, with coil splitting abilities. That way I'd have the pickup configuration I have now AND humbuckers in both positions. I know I'd have some routing to do.

    Is this a stupid idea? What things do I need to consider before I make this decision? Would other (non-MM) replacement pickups be a better pick for this job?

    Danksalot for your help!
