Butchered G&L G000543

It's a pass me down with a very low S/N of the early Leo and George guitars , an F-100 series II with a 12" radius neck which somebody decided to butcher....It came with a pickguard carrying a humbucker and two single coils and with the bridge blocked off.
It's obviously too butchered to return to former glory as the F-100 didn't have more than a pickguard over the volume tone/pots and had passive pickups..
Plan is to look at getting another pickguard custom made and based on the one that it came with that covers up the deepest of scars...and put in a claw and springs in the back.
The pickups removed were all cheap and cheerfuls...on first using the guitar I liked the bridge humbucker..but then I noticed it broke up too early on the gain and sounded poor...I have a few humbuckers I could use, as well as two mini-humbuckers sitting on the shelf..maybe a humbucker in the tail and mini in the neck, for something different...

updates to follow..
