    My First Core Purchase Advice

    To give an update, I ended up getting a good deal on a 35th anniversary CU24. The additional splitting options are great, genuinely a huge upgrade from my SE. I did try a CU22 Piezo at a local store and it sounded great, but I wasn't digging the color. The Faded Whale Blue that came on the 35th...

    Silver Sky Chip

    So I’ve had a silver sky in moc sand satin for about 4 months, and last night I noticed a small chip right next to the top strap button. It’s an odd place for anything to have bumped it especially since my strap stays on the guitar 90% of the time. Also I would think the strap should have...

    My First Core Purchase Advice

    Thanks for the feedback, that Aura looks awesome. I've seen the 3 pickup PRS guitars like the Special 22, and the flexibility would probably be great but it feels overwhelming aesthetically. I think I like the clean look of the dual humbucker, I know it's trivial but when you're spending this...

    My First Core Purchase Advice

    Thanks! I'll take into account the cost of an extra DI box if I go with the Piezo 22.

    My First Core Purchase Advice

    Yeah I've seen those two but I need a trem, I don't do tons of dive bombs but I like using it for adding some extra spice to chords.

    My First Core Purchase Advice

    Hey everyone just looking to get some advice on buying my first Core model. For the last few years I have been rocking a 2018 PRS SE CU24. I wasn't crazy about the 85/15 pickups in them as they seemed a little dull with a lack of definition in the low end. I ended up replacing them with Rebel...

    Pickups with Low End Punch

    Ok so after a lot of experimentation (adjusting pickup height wasn't quite doing it for me) and research I've come up with these pickups. There were lots of suggestions about the Abraxas pickups but after reaching out to Bare Knuckles they recommended going with the Rebel Yells. The other...

    Pickups with Low End Punch

    Thanks I will definitely try altering the pickup height to see if that addresses what I'm looking for.

    Pickups with Low End Punch

    Thanks I haven't had a PRS for long so this is definitely enlightening. I do love the versatility of the guitar/pickups, but I can see how there is a compromise there. I will add the 57/08's to my research list.

    Pickups with Low End Punch

    Currently looking to switch out pickups on my 2016 Custom 24 SE. I like the mellow smoother tone I get from them on the top end (I'm not a huge fan of bright chimney top end). But for the bottom end there are times when I'd like to have a little more pop/punch when doing single note funk lines...

    PRS Pickups Like Super HiLo'Tron's

    The neck actually sounds great, I just prefer some extra top end on my bridge pickups. I may try switching out the neck at some point with an American 85/15.

    PRS Pickups Like Super HiLo'Tron's

    I hadn't thought of that, thanks I will put that on the list. I'm also considering a Seymour Duncan JB or a Dimarzio Super 2 as I've read those are also fairly bright.

    PRS Pickups Like Super HiLo'Tron's

    Hi, I am new to the PRS world and just picked up a SE Custom 24 with 85/15's. I am coming from a Gretsch Electromatic with Super HiLo'Trons and one thing I loved about the bridge pickup of that guitar was how bright almost "tele'ish" it was. Turning on some drive was perfect for playing power...
