    Looking forward to MA_Pete's return and whatever his new obsession is. It always seems to be an adrenaline shot to the forum!

    When Pete comes back, it will be with a vengeance as always :cool:.

    Looks like I'll have something to add to this thread in about 5-6 months ;). This wait is going to suck :eek:.

    Thanks everyone for the very kind comments! I came back here tonight just to check in, and was moved by your posts.

    I will share with you guys that I put a set of one-off PRS Custom Wound PAF pickups in the beloved Prototype SC 594 this week. They were the extra set that came with the Rumbleseat Prototype.

    Here are the specs, and the writing on the back of the pickups (thanks to Mike/Rider1260 for the specs!):

    Rumble Seat A (Neck Pickup)
    7.78K
    Notes on the pickup:
    AL-2
    .125 ISO

    Rumble Seat B (Bridge Pickup)
    7.85K
    Notes on the pickup:
    AL-4
    MOJO

    I can't believe it, but that guitar sounds better than ever! Best sounding guitar I have ever owned or played. How is a guy supposed to have GAS when every other guitar I get after this one doesn't quite sound as good as this one? ;) (All have been great, but never quite as perfect as this one...)

    The bridge pickup is absolutely magical. It definitely does have Mojo, as written on the back of the pickup. Alnico 4 in there, interesting.

    After all this collecting of 594's (and the Ted's before that), this one is THE one, for me. Nothing else gets played, really. I guess I just need one, after all this fuss... :)

    Paul,

    Sorry for resurrecting an older post, but your guitar with the changes you made looks awesome! I have a couple of questions / concerns / observations for you and the rest of us...

    (By the way I just purchased a 594 SC...due to be delivered in 2 days...waiting is SO hard...)

    First, was there any change in the pickup output or tone with the change to the Allparts gold pole pieces? My concern is a change in alloy from what PRS uses might alter things...not that that would be horrible, but these guitars sound so amazing me, I'd hate to screw it up. Are my concerns unfounded?

    Second, I've been shopping around for gold tuner buttons. It looks like Schaller makes large buttons that might be a match for PRS. I might need to buy the entire TUNER set, but it's less expensive than Phase 3s. Any comments?

    Finally, I see that a company called Tone Ninjas (or something like that) sells ebony buttons with inlaid PRS birds that are advertised to fit Phase 3 tuners. They look amazing (if a little busy). Does anybody have experience with these?

    Thanks!
    Gene

    Hi Gene,

    No worries at all, I didn't notice any difference in tone when switching to the gold pole pieces. on another note though I did notice the difference between the wood library models with the maple necks as you guys would expect. I prefer those to the normal versions. Not sure on the gold tuner buttons to be honest I couldn't get any over here in the UK I would of had to fork out for a complete machine head set. I decided to just buy the white tuner buttons instead. I did the same to my 594DC as well.

    I've actually seen a 594 sc in gold sparkle and it looks really nice. I'd have another one if I could afford it.

    Cheers
    Paul

    I'm here to tell you, you can get everything in life you want if you're prepared to wait long enough for it.

    Ended up trading this to Randy at Infinity Guitars in Houston for a Baker B3 - that was originally custom ordered by our very own Pete Dale! Pete, I swear I'm not stalking you! I'm really liking the B3 so far. Randy is awesome to deal with as well!

    I joined the SC594 club. Had to sell a few things, but it was worth it.

    They actually called it Vintage Aqua. The other pic I have is in different lighting and it looks totally different.

    Hey Paul! Small world! ;)

    Yeah, Randy is a great guy! He mentioned that to me the other day, re a "guy from Seattle that knew me from the Forums" buying the the b3, I thought that might have been you.

    That is a killer b3 as well, congrats! I spec'ed two at once, decided to keep just one at the time. I still have the other one and love it!
