Re: Pickups in Mahogany body
If versatility is the key then I recommend putting 2 DPDT switches in on the humbuckers which allows them to run in series, parallel or coil split. I did this to my RG570 with my own custom wound pickups in it and it sounds awesome. 13 different sounds, all completely usable. Everything from clean funk tones through to full metal snarl. If you don't mind putting new holes in the front of the guitar body, I think its a mod that's well worth doing. Humbuckers in parallel mode sound very cool, clear and full, yet not quite as biting as asingle coil, but great for those Satriani-esque clean type riffs.
