Re: Should I get RG3120? Already have JEM 7DBK.

Some people (and i include myself) seem to believe theres better resonation from the wood to the pickup this way, rather than when using pickup mounting rings... countless threads on it if you search, some even with physics in them!

Still, maybe its just the psychological effect, but i do believe guitars with direct mounted pickups sound better!!

Couldnt agree more. the Jem7dbk is one hell of a sounding guitar. I have several guitars and i dont play them much as the DBk.

If you can afford it, why not?

Mahogany will sound quite a bit different than basswood, plus you can put in different pickups in another basswood sound and have another sound that way too, so you have a choice!
