Anybody tried a SD59 on a RGA121?

I know you would lose the 5 way switch options (single lead) but the tone may be worth it. Anybody any suggestions?

you can get a 59 with four conductor wiring, you could use this with your five way selector in the same way as whatever is in it now.

Re: Anybody tried a SD59 on a RGA121?

i have tried it and i liked it but went with the Jazz model for the neck and a JB in the bridge. they really make that guitar speak! i feel they are a perfect match and i still have use of my 5 way switch.

i like the crm/blk in the bridge - it seems to break up the looks a little and set off the natural top nicely.
i have mine detuned a whole step and then drop D (actually C) tuned and it just rocks!

Thats what I have now, Jazz neck & JB Bridge. I just feel the Jazz is a bit harsh sometimes.
