Anyone here ever do that?
It's a swimming-pool rout so it should be easy if you have a fitting new pickguard. I really liked the Comanche pickups when I owned mine so I never thought about it.
every guy i've ever met with a comanche bought it for those pickups - never seen or heard of anyone replacing them - they should be relatively easy to sell if you do decide to change them though -
I owned two Comanches and loved everything about them except the bridge pickup-I found it too harsh and thin on the treble strings.
I know it would have been aesthetically awkward, but I'd have liked the bridge pickup to do a reverse z, where the treble string ceramic magnets were further away from the bridge than the bass strings. I have a Voodoo Strat whose bridge pu slanted opposite of a regular strat's and it was such a sweeter sound.
You could replace the whole pickguard with another guard and pickups and keep the original for a possible resale.
I just went ahead and found other guitars. Still, they are so well made, great tremelos, and the other pickups sounded wonderful.
