i want to pimp up my old cheap Ibanez. right now it has a humbucker - single coil - humbucker configuration, but i want to ditch the single coil and just go with two humbuckers. how would you close up the single coil slot so it´s really even and ready for a new finish?

Check out this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUUuMzxJ9h8 , maybe this concept would also adapts to your needs. It looks expensive though.

thanks a bunch. someone actually showed me the same video over on the Andy Sneap forum. pimping this guitar will be a lot of work. i thought getting new pickups and wiring them the way i want would be complicated. but filling the slot and giving it a new finish is a way bigger beast.
