    Limited vs new Core Special Semi-hollowbody models

    Thank you, this is what I would assume.. I'm not informed near enough to know the difference in sound between a covered and uncovered version of the exact same pickup, but that didn't seem to account for the slight differences I was hearing in comparing the two. I referred to this guide before...

    Limited vs new Core Special Semi-hollowbody models

    Thanks guys! if you go back a page or so you can see where I came into this thread, I asked about these uncovered pickups too, I was confused!! These aren't actually the standard 58/15MT's that usually come on the SSH, they're 85/15MT's.. I've seen conflicting accounts around the internet as...

    Limited vs new Core Special Semi-hollowbody models

    Guys... I want to thank everyone here and your guidance, this was a revelatory discussion for me. I went out to Northeast Music Center and I can't say enough amazing things about Jack Gretz and everyone there! SO accommodating and genuine and nice.. I tried out a Special 22 with the 58/15MT's...

    Lol, trust me, I want to.. If Jack would give me a BOGO on those, I'd be happy to.. or if he has an underground kidney removal service in the back, that could work too

    Was just coming back to say this! You are, indeed, correct! I heard back from Jack Gretz and they're 85/15 MT's.. Totally missed it, a little bit of dyslexia.. They're named so similarly! PRS contacted him to see if he'd like it for inventory so they snagged it, I guess it was a factory...

    HA!! Yeah, I did more than one double take on that too.. Was wondering if I'd need to buy a back brace to go along with it.. I thought SH's were supposed to be lighter!

    Limited vs new Core Special Semi-hollowbody models

    Sorry for such a quick follow up, you guys just have me fully convinced that the MT's are the way to go.. I'm also pretty sold on either the faded whale blue or mccarty sunburst (and as a wood library model with rosewood neck, but that's just silly.. what, maybe 10 of each was probably ever...

    Limited vs new Core Special Semi-hollowbody models

    I've been scouring the internet looking for this EXACT discussion! So glad to read everyone's thoughts on this. The special 22 semi-hollow is my absolute dream guitar and, with the recent announcement of it coming to the Core line, I've been very torn.. This thread has helped immensely as the...
