I found my tone! (proof I'm insane)

I have found the tone I have always been looking for, in the absolute wierdest place. I took all the electronics out of my 87 rg550 and replaced them with one olp john petrucci neck pickup, no controls at all just the humbucker straightt into the output jack. While I was at it I raised replaced my d'addario 9s with thomastik infeld Jazz Swing flatwound 11s and blocked my trem with a gatorade lid (perfect size). plugged into my 60s champ with the volume on 4.5 it sounds almost like a good acoustic strummed, and the low notes sound almost like high register Billy Sheehan. With the Champ cranked (who knew 5 watts was so LOUD?) it sounds like SRV but with more dynamics than you would think possible! I hearby reccomend everyone to try yanking the controls out of your guitars ;p

BTW, could I be the first person ever who has flatwound strings on a guitar with a full scallop a floyd rose and one neck humbucker?
