    Thanks for your reply. Figured as much but thought it worth asking. Light weight is important and I do like SRs, so a Special is the way to go.

    I'd put a full-size HB in there if it were routed for it but I ain't gonna cut it up. I know the lil 59 won't sound like a full size HB but I expect it to be a bit fuller than the stock pup. Almost...

    Hey Tbone,

    I need to do that with the humbuckers in my SM. The neck pup needs more definition and maybe lowering it will help. The single-coils are fine.
