I have a Robin Medley that I've enjoyed for years - this despite it being the "wrong" guitar for me. I'm pretty much the typical TGP demographic (older, tends to appreciate and play jazz/blues/classic rock, etc.). I recently decided to "get my shred on" (a little), and this is the designated vehicle. Its swamp ash with rosewood board and has a Floyd and a fast neck. I had put a Kahler Steeler trem on it years ago which sounded better but works worse than the stock Takeuchi, so I finally got (after a really long wait) a KGC block for the stock trem; I finally put that on and think that will work well (but had one screw hole not lined up right, so its on there with 2 screws). I had some WCR Fillmores in there - sounds good but thick and too "old school" for what I want to do now. I'm replacing them with EMG X 89s in both positions (the R in the neck). Its taking a while, and still not done yet. I'm having to remember how my fancy Schaller 3 position blade switch is wired. Beyond that, it took little looking to find the right wiring diagram for the EMGs online - the sheet included with the pickup is not much help. They tried to make it easy with the snap on connectors, but its still takes a bit of thought, and answers to some issues are hard to find - like which side up for some of the snap ons. I was a little surprised to find that I would have to forgo a tone control - I had assumed that I could have a master volume and master tone and change from single to dual coil with only the push pull on the master volume to affect both pickups - looks like I'm having to use 2 volumes, one for each pickup. I had to drill the channel for the bridge pickup wiring a bit wider to fit the connector through, and I'll have to cut the neck pickup connector in order to get it through its channel and then resolder each of those tiny wires again. I test fitted all the stuff in the cavity - looks like it will work (barely). I thought I'd post this in case someone else is about to go active and might benefit from knowing about some issues to consider. Anyway, I hope at the end I'll feel like this was worth it.
