Has anyone put JEM pickups on an RG and compared how it...

The wood difference is a big part of it. But I've noticed that wizard necks, because they are so thin, can both resonate and sustain differently than a thicker neck. The Jem neck is a little thicker, and I think just thick enough to stabilize it. The wizards are always "rubbery", so you might think the pickups are wimpier. But the theory is that there would be no difference. I'm about to put Jem-ish pickups into an RG560. I have to rout the neck for a humbucker so it'll be awhile but I'm counting on it getting me the sound of an older Jem so we'll see.
