    Dragon II Pickups - What do you think of them

    Dragon IIs are fantastic in my experience!!! For me, they are a great blend between vintage and modern ‘bucker tone. I feel like McCarty pickups are okay, but to me they’re kind of a snooze. Comparatively, Dragon IIs have a nice bit of extra “umph” that gets me where I like to be.

    And he always plays Smoke on the Water or Stairway

    He (and all his buddies) came into the guitar store I used to work at regularly. I think I remember his name, even!

    Starting a PRS Collection ...

    These are the real facts. Everyone feels a bit different about the different neck/pickup/bridge/scale length/22 vs 24 fret/solid vs semi-hollow details. It is hard to know for sure how you feel about different configurations until you “live” the experience. I know what I like so far, but I’m...

    Cool! It looks awfully nice. I’d love to try one of them in person. Unfortunately, I’ve not had the chance to quite yet.

    Anyone switch to SS Amps over the years??

    I’ve just fallen head-over-heals for my Neural DSP into my “big monitor” set-up, which is a Crown K-2 through old JBL L100 speakers. It’s the first modeling anything I’ve bought since a Line 6 ages ago. It was worth the wait - this kind of tech has finally arrived, IMO. If I did solid state...

    Core 35th Anniversary - PRS pickup swap options?

    Yes… the 59/09s are tempting. My wheels are turning, for sure.

    Core 35th Anniversary - PRS pickup swap options?

    Thanks for the info! I’m trying to “make nice” with these 85/15s. They are growing on me, but I don’t love them wholeheartedly yet. I think they sound delightfully clear, but border on sterile. Good to know I potentially could change it up, but sounds like it might be a downgrade. I’m not...

    Core 35th Anniversary - PRS pickup swap options?

    I have a Core 35th Anniversary and am considering other pickup options. If I were to select PRS pickups, what ones are compatible with the 24/08 style wiring? Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge!

    Dragon 2000 pickups. Huh?

    I am trying to address a wiring concern in my McCarty and I see these pickups inside. I only know they’re not original. The neck pickup sounds good, but I think the way the bridge pickup is wired isn’t quite right. It sounds extra thin. They appear to be two conductor pickups, which seems...

    Let’s see your PRS family Photos!

    Thanks! Ya know, it’s funny you say that. It’s my favorite too. But, I do think color is fun too… sheesh, who am I kidding? I like most all of them.

    Artist II from the mid 90’s - tell me what you know…

    So, as my interest in different PRS guitars grows, I’ve come to find I really like the aesthetics of the Artist II series. Extra classy, yet not as “sparkly” as the Artist III. I dig it. However, I am led to believe they all were semi/hollow or chambered of sorts. Is this an awesome thing for...

    Nickel parts for US Custom 24 35th Anny

    Thanks for the feedback, gents! Yeah, I can’t leave some things well enough alone. However, I’m always jazzed when I’ve done these kinds of little things to a guitar that matter to no one else but me!

    Nickel parts for US Custom 24 35th Anny

    Hello! Long time reader, first time poster. I’ve got a lovely US made Custom 24 35th Anny with a 10 top. That’s fantastic in and of itself, but I don’t care for the hybrid hardware. I’ve sourced what I can find so far, but the following nickel items elude me. 3 way selector switch ring Mini...
