From my research, it seems that you can just change trees to run a 23 (Pickards are highly recommended), but have to rake the neck to run a 26. Trees can be swapped back to stock if you ever wanted to, but chopping the neck is a more permanent commitment for what that's worth, not to mention the added expense and it's less of a DIY mod.
I also agree with Drew that you need to go all-in for the 26 to look right, but I'm sure if you're considering the big wheel you've already thought of that.
