    NGD-SC58

    Thanks! I have been very happy with it so far! I got to play it quite a bit over the weekend and have found it really does check all the boxes for me. All the little things that I just haven't been wild about with the 594 models are not an issue with this SC58. I think it's easily my favorite...

    Coming from a Tremonti, the layout is completely natural and normal for me. I like having the volume knobs on top. Infact, the 594 models I had felt odd and took some getting used to for sure.

    Cleaned up, polished, conditioned fretboard and polished frets, new strings and new setup. Seems like it plays even better now!

    NGD-SC58

    Thanks everyone! I think this one will quickly become the one I play the most. The top is incredible too! It's crazy how good this guitar feels for being 13 years old. It couldn't have been played much, there is basically no fret wear at all. I have been through several different 2018+ models...

    Not my finest photography but it was just a quick shot from the other night. It'll be getting a full setup with new strings and thorough cleanup this evening! :)

    Well I am a sucker for a good PRS singlecut. I ran across an excellent, dang neat mint condition SC58 in Tobacco McCarty Burst and decided to give it a shot and holy smokes am I am impressed with it. For a 2011 model I would say its nicer than several newer models I have tried. The 57/08 pickups...

    Tuner Buttons Phase III Question

    Sorry I’m late here. I ended up finding the nickel ones from another member who had them lying around. I believe the gold ones are even harder to come by. I haven’t even put the nickel ones on as I’m probably looking to move the guitar they were intended for.

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    That is exactly what I have been doing, just making small adjustments here and there to see what I like. The 57/08's are very responsive to even small height adjustments so I think I'll get it dialed in. Unfortunately, we still have not been able to have a full band practice yet, there's so...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    It's interesting how there's such a difference in how these pickups measure based on their age and what they are producing now. I was hoping to get close to what you have in your 594 but I still have a nice difference in readings between my neck and bridge pickups, just lower. Tremonti Neck...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    I definitely prefer the 57/08 over the stock 594 pickups too. I tried 2 singlecut 594 models before going back with the Tremonti and wasn’t crazy about the pickups in either 594 to be honest. One was a ‘21 model that had the 58/15LT and the other was a ‘23 that had the 58/15LT+, I couldn’t tell...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    That’s great! Hopefully they can find you one thats hotter than the one you got. I’m wondering if I should have tried the same thing in swapping but mine was technically within the +/- .4k variance so not sure how that would have worked out. Still getting used to the 57/08 and liking it...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    So I also ended up emailing PRS in regards to the lower than advertised DC resistance rating of the 57/08. Apparently the accessories website had not been updated to reflect the current offerings, looks like it has since been updated with the numbers below in the response I received. Hey Jacob...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    Well....No practice tonight after all, there's some sickness going around the group and we had to cancel till neck week....bummer. But, this will give me some more time to tinker at home and continue to dial things in to my liking! Still curious as to what PRS is going to say when they...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    Well despite the pickup reading a little lower than I was expecting I was able to get it installed last night. I am definitely satisfied with it for sure, I think it is going to be exactly what I was after. I played around with the pickup height some this morning before heading out and learned...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    So mine is measuring out at 8.78k. I know they can vary a little and readings between meters can vary a tad as well. The meter I am using is pretty old but it measures consistent every time. I was hoping to see at least 9 or little over though. While it was at it I decided to measure my...

    They're covered. Tremonti Neck and a 57/08 Bridge.

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    Actually when I put them screw pole to screw pole nothing really happens, no attraction or resistance either way. But if I turn one of them 180 degrees where the screw poles are opposite each other and at the flat part or bottom of each pickup, that's when they will pull together. That's a hard...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    Hopefully I don't plan on many more pickup changes after this one. So if I hold the 57/08 facing the Tremonti neck with the poles on the 57/08 being towards the bottom of the guitar, like they would be once the pickup is installed, there is a pretty strong magnetic pull or attraction between...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    Good deal. I don't currently have a multi meter or anything to test that out. I had read somewhere about holding the new 57/08 pickup up against the Tremonti neck pickup that is staying in the guitar face to face and if they were magnetically attracted to each other they were out of phase? and...

    PRS 57/08 Treble in Tremonti or leave it alone?

    Got the 57/08 in yesterday. Hopefully going to get it wired up this evening. From what I can tell from the factory it's wired as Black=Hot, Red=Coil Tap (will be taped off and not used), White & Shielded=Ground. In my recent learning about pickups being in and out of phase should I switch the...
