Let's talk Non Reverse

Hello guys,

I am currently considering "doing something" with/to my beloved 2002 CS Non Reverse FB- 3 mini HBs but can't make up my mind what.

Option A-
1- refinish -any TV-white enthusiasts in the room??. I remember finding these breathtaking pics on this forum:

2- Why not change the configuration from 3 pus to 2 + add a lyre vibrola. But, even though I love the look I fear the impact of it on the playability/ tuning of the guitar, I really hit my strings hard most of time... Any thoughts on this?? It'd basically look like this except for the chrome hardware:

3- Change bridge pu for something better. I have a Lollar bridge in my main Firebird V and it's just great. I've also heard very good things about Duncan Aniquity II. What about Curtis Novak's?

Option B- Sell the CS and buy this 1965 below. Only thing is p90's... I dig minis + oh!poor fretboard... But the price's decent €2200/$2900 and not far from where I live...

What option would go for?

Wow, that is a well played Firebird! Buy it.
I play a Trini Lopez Reissue through a Fender Blues Jr. Sunburst.
