    Thinking of outfitting an S2 standard 22 satin with a pair of those humbucker-sized single coils. Like Fralin P-92s or Twangmasters. Has anyone else here attempted this?

    I currently own a Mira semi-hollow, which I really love for its weight and neck and all-around quality. I also own a Jazzmaster for its sound and vibrato arm. But I really don't like to play it. The neck doesn't work for me (shape and scale probably) and it's two pounds heavier. I find myself always picking up the Mira but wishing it sounded more like the Jazzmaster. And the coil-split doesn't really get me close to the Jazzy. Just wondering if I could turn a Standard 22 into some sort of hybrid of these two.

    Thanks for reading!

    Never done it on a PRS, but I had a Tele Deluxe with Seymour Duncan Phat Cats (Humbucker sized P90s) and it was awesome. 100% recommend.

    I put a set of Kinman Noiseless HB sized P-90s in a SC594. Sounds awesome!

    Go for it! I put P-90's in the S2 Singlecut Standard I had and it rocked.

    I also have a set of these in a CE-24. I like the Kinman a tad better because they're noiseless. But, these sound awesome.

    Sounds great. Always liked the looks of those too. (Ooh, black satin standard 22 with blackface lollars!)

    I’d throw some regular sized singles in one.. maybe make a pickguard?

    I love my p-90 loaded guitar, such a unique sound.

    If you don’t like them, its no hardship returning the guitar to its original form.

    I think you won’t though, because they rock.

    I wonder why PRS doesn't load more of their line with them? The only thing on the reasonably affordable end seems to be that SE baritone.

    The Fralin P-92s have been one of my favorite pickups for a long time. It makes me sad that I don't have a guitar with them in it right now.
