    Ive been playing all afternoon and I gotta say....The magic is in there,man! We are still getting acquainted and they need to settle in a bit,however,Hot Damn!! Im big on neck pups and this is by far the best one Ive had yet and Im not kidding. Full and round with a highly articulate presence...And then you add in a bit of the bridge and Wow,I couldnt stop playing,my damn ass is sore as is my hand,however,its a sore Im smiling about,ya know!?!? I'll have more to report as we settle in,my vid guy is all set as soon as Im ready,too,so theres that...I dont have the recording resources like I used to,so,its a Ytuber that I'll do.

    clean demo and classic rawk tones please

    I am so happy with the mag swap on my rd59 hybrid (the original were excellent just a slight eq shift) but I am super curious.

    Did you put your harness in yet? If so, what differences in tone did it make.

    Yup,I just finished it up 10 mins ago.....Not a real noticeable difference thank goodness,just a bit more control over the neck pup. I wasnt looking to change or " improve " the tones I was getting(hard to improve perfection,and no,Im not sucking up,just stating the truth. I havent had this much fun playing in years),I had an old harness in there that I put together back in '07 that had become problematic,i.e.; scratchy pots and the neck cap was a .033(yaaa,dont ask). Anyhow,I went ahead and done a full overhaul with Matts harness,a toggle switch harness from Jonesy and your HG's....I cant quit grinning. I busted my damn pup ring though(again,dont ask)....Now,that beautiful neck pup is singing with a much more open voice:thumb:

    Great stuff man, thank you. It certainly doesn't help the GAS though.
