Help me pick out pickups for a vintage-sounding RG550
So, I have an extra RG around the house and I'm thinking of rewiring it for a different sound. I have a JEM7VWH and an RG570FM with Evolutions. I also have a strat that has a great sound but, of course, will never play like a wizard neck. So here's my idea: drop lower output "vintage"-sounding pickups in an extra pickguard and try to get a strat sounding RG.
Per the sticky at the top:
24 fret, maple board
Basswood body, pickguard mounted pickups
Original Edge trem
Sounds a bit "dark" with the DiMarzio's currently installed.
