and i love it. i think it really sounds different and just soo good. I think it doesnt harm the sustain at all like alot of people say, but i do however think it really brings out the bridge pups growl. I love being able to play directly over the pup instead of slightly behide it. It sounds great and i'm soo glad i did it, after all of the debate if i should or not, i even think it looks cooler. I'm probably going to get one of the P.G. pup surroundings for it soon. it was however a pain in the ass to get the pup back it, maybe it was just me but it seemed like alot of work. well anyway, just sharing my joy and my new found love for my ric.
