    wanted to get your advice. I have my Baker B-1 for sale in the emporium, but also have some PRS Grissom pickups coming. Do you think it helps or hurts to have new pickups put in prior to selling? Currently there are Dimarzio's VVPAF in there.

    Not sure if I should wait or just go ahead and put them in.

    No value at all would be added by putting in the PRS Grissom pickups. You would make more money by selling the guitar as-is and then selling the PRS pickups.

    My main concern was if it hurt the value. If it added to it great, but just didn't want to take away from the guitar.

    I say keep the PRS's for something you're gunna play that needs new pickups.

    Putting in the PRS pickups definitely wouldn't hurt the value.

    Keep it stock!

    Any change could become an excuse/reason/concern for the buyer to go lower on the price.

    Also, PRS prickups are not necessarily better pickups for everyone.
