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: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
