    Agreed.
    I would add JA-15 and Starla to the short list.

    I need to pull the Filtertrons and harness and get an idea what needs to be done to adapt.

    I've got some shoes that should go with those Filtertrons. Let me know if you wanna borrow them. Size 13

    If I had a JA-15 I wouldn't be changing anything!

    Starla is on the list, but I was originally considering a semi-hollow Mira

    +1 for chucking them in a Starla

    If you go Starla, go Core Starla though, not S2. Then do a before/after (with the Core Starla pickups). Would be very educational IMO!

    Whatever oddness my MacBook and this webpage are doing won't let me share Jetydosa's DGT with 'Trons.

    Working hard to not chuck laptop through window. Search google "Instagram jetydosa".

    Depends on your budget
    Of course a HBII
    Core Starla or Mira
    Custom 22 Semi Hollow
    S2 Semi Hollow
    SE Zak Meyers
    to be honest I think they would kill in most any PRS

    We'll have to see. I have mixed emotions about moving over the "mud switch" and other stuff on the harness; there are nice tones to be had and others I could easily forget. This might turn into a bigger project than just moving the pickups into a PRS body.

    Dude, if you don't move the mud switch the 'tron is just not right!!! Granted, my mud switch has the mod TV Jones suggests, but it has three really cool tones. I am thinking bigger but not huge/impossible. It could be really cool!!

    I know. For me the "mud" turns to magic if I run it through an old Ampeg Jet-12 I have. However I'm balancing the cost of modification with the cost of what I'm going to get out of it.
