The DGT is so much more than just the pickups. Tremolo, 6100 frets, McCarty thickness, neck shape, and cool volumes/tone with the three way switch.
My 2008 goldtop has had 57/08s installed since 2009. I have another that’s totally stock. The 57/08s reign supreme for me.
And, just to...
In 2013, I was asked by the PTC to test the new nut material on my 2008 DGT. I stopped at the factory, got the nut installed, and tested it out for a few months. I think I kept it on there? In 2020, I had the PTC install a bone nut. I’ve been happy with the bone (TWSS).
So many decimals and zeros.
As a life long Strat player (strung with 11-49s - always), the PRS 25” scale has always felt floppy to me. I’ve never been able to duck below 11s.
The DGT coming from the factory with 11s was perfect for me - already factory set up with the perfect set up.
I've owned five DGTs. The middle three are gone - I still own a June 2008 and 2019 transition model (has neck binding).
NONE of the neck shapes were even remotely similar!
I don't mind the change in shape...not a huge deal.
The comments here sure don't disappoint.
I've thoroughly enjoyed being a mod for the past four years.
Keeping people civil during some of the most trying times we've ever seen has been a real joy.
All while getting paid nothing to be (mentally and emotionally) away from my family.
