    On the push-pull switch, commons are the central lugs. So, one pickup needs to alternatively takes HOT from pickup BLACK, or from pickup centrals RED+WHITE, GREEN should always be grounded. The other pickup needs to alternatively be GROUNDED by BLACK, or by RED+WHITE, HOT being GREEN. So, one...

    Artist Package: how to?

    Yes, I got that. Private Stock is offering all the possibilities, while Artist package is a higher end bundle for a model. I'd like some advice on rosewood neck vs mahogany; tone, playability, finish, stability of both woods in time and also look with that particular color :-).

    Artist Package: how to?

    Ok, so all I have to do is find a shop (online or real), send my wishlist and payment, and wait for PRS to build it? What about a 408, Artist package, Rosewood pattern thin neck, Obsidian and hybrid hardware? BTW, what is the usual back color with Obsidian, natural or black/dark green? Is the...

    bump would be a better word... Please, do apologise me for my bad english, it's a third language for me :-). Anyway, I meant irregular neck. Regarding the wiring, I first made a sketch of the entire cavity, and then tried and clarifiy it to have some sort of an electronic diagram. This helped...

    Ok, everything stalled on my side :-( : the neck of my CU24 SE had some very annoying buldge and recess areas around 12th to 13th frets on the back of the neck. I choose to return it, have my money back and save for a core later. I'm confident there will be much less chance to have a lemon from...

    Artist Package: how to?

    Hi, I'd like to know how the artist package works. I mean, it seems all very attractive, but what is the way to do it? Find a shop, and send all the characteristics (neck wood, neck type, hardware style, color and so on), ask for a price, and then they arrange the order with PRS to build the...

    I just entered PRS family with an SE CU24, Trampas Green. Really happy, nice wood and sound. Changed from 9-42 to 10-46 Elixirs (coming from acoustic guitar). Greg

    I have practically no experience with PRS, I only got my SE custom for two or three weeks now. I first decided to change the gauge of strings, 9 was simply too thin to my ears. I paid attention to the tremolo, and remember it was perfectly parallel with the table/front of the guitar and string...

    Introduce yourself!

    Hi, My name is Greg. I just recently came back to guitar after a break of several years (family, children and so on, life...). Now I got a bit more time in my hands (growing children, divorce and so on, life...), and rediscovered my old trusty acoustic Norman B20 folk. Then bought a...

    @ _pete_: thanks, yes, that was the pic I had in mind. And seeing this, do the se are that much thicker than the core ones, or is it just the Bernie?

    I think I'll go for the third one, but currently, in splitted mode, it's the screw SC that are selected, and I'd like to have the slug side, that PRS seems to prefer as emulating a SC sound. I plan to go for mojotone push-pull pots, and the PRS custom 5pos blade switch. pickup frames...
