RG3120 with Steve Special pickup

I own an Ibanez rg3120.. I'd like to change the Tonezone for a Steve's Special (JPM guitars). Would it sound good ???

I would think that the Steve's Special would have too much high end for the mahagony body. Though, I have one in a basswood RG and it really bites at high volumes.

Maybe...give it a try...DiMarzio will let you swap it for another if you don't like it.

I've got one in my RG1680, which also has a maple/mahogany body. *Sounds great to me. *Very open but still hot. *I haven't found it to be overly trebly. *Sounds great distorted, nice and crunchy. *Sorry I'm not better with tonal descriptions, just wanted to say I think it sounds great in a mahogany body. *And as Jimm pointed out, you can always swap it if you don't like it.
