    NGD: CE 24 inside...custom color

    That top is awesome. If I bought based on that picture and ended up with that top, I'd be stoked.

    Bernie Marsden upgrades

    Love all the gold bling. I have been pondering a gold hardware project on an ES-335 for years but I think I would need a home equity loan to do it right. Great stuff.

    Civil War! Vela Vs Vela

    Thanks for this. Plenty clear enough to hear the differences, and to appreciate that they both sound great.

    SE Paul's Guitar vs Zach Myers

    If I can completely clog up this comment section with an observation that does not answer your question specifically, contains no insight about the topic generally, and furthermore doesn't even pertain to PRS as a man/myth/corporation: the Tru-Arc bridge in my Gretsch 5420 arrived in days, looks...

    What is this guitar? Custom 22? Special order McCarty Anniversary?

    If it has 22 pickups, it's probably not stock. I'd contact the PRS Tech dept for information on a 1.1240007277776E+21-way switch. (seriously though that's a beautiful instrument!)

    NGD: Private Stock #8988 all Ziricote HBII Piezo

    New PRS

    Any of those will do you just fine. There are also a ton of used SEs out there. Generally, "Standard" SEs have a mahogany body and no maple top. "Custom" SEs have a maple cap with a maple veneer laminated on for the classic PRS look. (USA-made PRSi have a figured maple cap that does not need a...

    HSH options.....

    Was not expecting to see a PIA in this thread! That thing just radiates 90's cool.

    HSH options.....

    The 2 & 4 positions on my Limited Special Semi do not sound phasey / clucky like you might think, even with the front or back humbuckers tapped (the narrowfield not being a real single coil could contribute to this?). They sound complex, bright and beautiful, but it's not really strat-like at...

    PRS SE Custom 22 semi hollow Santana yellow.

    Nice purchase. It sure would be nice if we could see it.

    Seymour Duncan SH-15 & SH-16 and SE mods?

    I put a 59/Custom in the bridge and a Pearly Gates in the neck of an SE Singlecut, replacing a HFS and a Vintage Bass. I have been very pleased. The 59/custom is more vocal and dynamic (maybe more "vintage" or "classic") and the Pearly Gates is chimier and much more useful to me. I felt it was...

    Action was high as h*ll!!

    Well, my 335 remains skeptical, but I think that's one beautiful guitar, inlays, top, and all.

    Shouldn't Dottie, uh, not have birds?

    Humbucker vs Trembucker

    DiMarzio sent me a humbucker that was supposed to be a Trembucker this past December. It was in a trembucker box (they call it f-spaced), with a trembucker sticker. I had it all the way in the goddanged guitar and strung before I noticed. ARRGH. I pulled it out, packed it back up, and sent it...
