I've been playing for a very long time but just recently discovered this cool Forum. I bought a new 2017 Gibson Standard SG HP in 2017. It has Classic 57's and plays great and I love it. My question is how difficult and expensive is it to install push/pull pots? I always do my own setups and minor mods like changing pickups, tuners, bridge, strap locks, etc. but I've never done any rewiring.

Thanks

You then have to replace the whole thing, pots, toggle switch and output jack.

Why install push/pull pots?. Waste of time and money on a generally useless mod. I have coil split and I never use it because the split coils doesn't sound like a single coil, it just sounds weak. .

Sure, I'm always happy to share some guitar porn:

These were taken by Sweetwater but it's my guitar:

The fingerboard is rosewood and all of the inlays are real mother-of-pearl. She's a sweet guitar and tied for my favorite. I left the robo tuners on because it's my only guitar that has them and, I have to admit, they are kind of fun to watch.
