    Considering buying a set of CS69's, but like the higher gain bridge pickup in my 08 Am Standard. Realizing that the middle isn't RWRP, would there be any conflict with wiring them into the AmStandard Delta-tone bridge pickup? Anyone know for sure?

    It will work just fine.

    As you note, you won't have hum-cancelling in positions 2 and 4 anymore, as the CS'69 isn't RWRP.

    I'd recommend getting one CS69 and one Dimarzio Area 67, they sound very close to each other, but will give you variety, hum canceling in one position and 50% hum canceling in the in between position. I'd try them in each position to see which I like best, I like the area in the neck, really pops in a light weight guitar, I actually liked it better than the CS69 and use the Texas Special in the middle for a really nice in between position.

    The area is a little scooped in comparison, so you just lower the bass side when adjusting.
