I think the 59/09 is a great match for the NFs, output wise they're all set at a similar height, and tone wise it adds a bit more versatility than the usual 57/08 matched with the NFs (IMO). The guitar covers a lot of territory, SC in-between quack/funk, P-90 creaminess and 59/09 HB musical high gain. I'll do a tone demo one of these days, too busy with a baby due in a few weeks!
It might not be clear in the avatar how well used my oldest is
No longer with us, but Spike was a great dog and my online namesake. Took a while but he eventually got over me taking a picture of him in my hoodie.
And the other I've been using is my 59/09
