How have you modified your 80's era Larrivée guitars?

I installed Bartolini pickups on my LS-4 CM (LCE70 humbucker 16,7kOhm and single coil 3XV Strat replacement 6.7kOhm).
Also installed a Gotoh gold Floyd (with string retainer that Larrivée left out. It fits nicely in the truss rod cover holes). I changed to DiMarzio ClipLock straps.

Let's see some replies and pictures!

Never touched any of mine other than adding Schaller Strap Locks.

BTW  nice guitar Your Mods are very nice!

What PUPS did you replace with the Bartolini There were quite a few stock Bartolini Larrivees from that era.

Thanks a lot! The pickups that were installed prior were some crappy random ones (definitely not the original pickups). I chose Bartolini because - as you said - they sometimes came as stock and sound bloody good too. Nysse Nyström, the swedish Larrivée dealer had some lying around in his shop that I bought.
