After going through all the hassle of shaving wood to make it fit, i've installed a Bartolini PBF57 in the neck position of my RGA121.
I followed this diagram: http://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/19/philippu.0/0_c42f_63270773_orig.jpg

only I swapped the red and black as that seems to be the difference between dimarzio and bartolini as seen here: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f35/another-pickup-wiring-resource-thread-110579.html

Most positions work fine, BUT the passive neck position gives no sound at all and the split coil position sounds like it's only the bridge pickup working.. If anyone can help i'd be vastly appreciative!!! :)

One extra note: The green from the neck pup was originally going to the 3rd tab from the right with the black wire that grounds the switch. Not seeing why it would be different, i simply made the green go straight to the vol pot to ground as the diagram says instead.. could that have done anything?

Bartolini sent me this resource with the pickup: http://www.bartolini.net/instructions/pickups/passive/switching/4cnd_sw1.htm
