Just played through my RX-ES with my FrankenStrat Saturday night. It is loaded with EMG ALNICOs. I swapped out the bridge pup with a Telecaster EMG pup recently, so I was eager to try it again with the RX after a long hiatus. It tended to go into a smoother overdrive with the EMGs with the same settings I use with my 62 RI Telecaster Custom. The RX with the Strat EMG neck pup just sings! Very smooth bluesy sustaining tone. The in-between positions 2 & 4 got a nice satisfied nod from me while playing.
Putting in the Tele bridge pup was an idea I got from watching a Lowell George video.
I believe that I will play the Strat more through it, but probably will adjust the knobbies a bit from my Telecaster settings.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
