Breed Bridge w/S1 singles in RG560?

I made the decision to try something different in the bridge slot of my 87 RG560 and decided to go with a Breed as I wanted something not too over the top to blend with the S1 single coils in the neck/middle. I hope I made the right choice.

Actually, I like the V2 (it's an older one w/o the markings) tone wise overall, but found it doesn't balance right with the neck volume wise (the neck is much louder) and tone wise it doesn't split well with the middle (too dark, no quack)

I said I would never change anything in that guitar, as it has always been all original. Because of it's veratility, it has turned into one of my main go to guitars and I figured if I can make it better.. Why not?

Does anybody have a 560 with a Breed in the bridge? Or, know what I can expect?

Like I said, the main thing I like about the guitar is the versatility with the S/S/H. I'm hoping the Breed will be a good fit. I play everything from Rock, Blues to Dance/Pop with that guitar. Thanks

The Breed is nice and creamy in a 550--got a set in one of mine.

Creamy sounds good. Do you think it is a good bridge pickup to balance out with single coils? I chose it over the Mo' Joe. It came down to those two.

I originally was thinking a PAF Pro, as it was solid back in the day.

The Breeds balance well with many single coils.

Ok thanks. Once the honeymoon phase is over I will post my thoughts on the change.
