    PRS Explains Pickup Design - I was right!

    I'm so happy PRS released this information to the public in their latest video: I wrote an article earlier this year explaining what I believed was PRS's TCI process (link: https://guitarpickupdatabase.com/prs-tci-pickups-explained/). Every time I heard Paul describe how pickups have a...

    58/15 “S” and Epiphone ProBucker 3 - same pickup? Spec and Resonance Curve comparison

    Hi All! while I was doing some tests with the PRS 58/15 "S" bridge pickup, I recalled that the specs were very similar to what I had recorded for the Epiphone ProBucker 3. I rechecked and confirmed that all the specs were basically identical, and the resonance curves overlapped each other. Both...

    58/15 Pickup wiring colors different between Bass and Treble

    Hi, I've bought some S2 pickups for my SE Standard 22 but the wire colors are different from Bridge to Neck, and the info available online doesn't match with what I have. I think they are 58/15S pickups from a McCarty 594. Most of the posts I read only talk about 3 wires. The Treble pickup...

    58/15 vs. 58/15 LT vs. 58/15 LT+

    This is purely a curiosity post, but as I understand it, the LTs were developed from the 58/15’s utilizing a lower wind. PRS claims they have different EQs as well. So if the 58/15 is a “higher-wind” version of the LTs, then what the hell is the 58/15 LT+? Still less winds than the 58/15 but...

    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...

    NGD CE 24 with 58/18 LT pickups

    Here is my new baby. I managed to track down a CE with 58/15 LT pickups, courtesy of a Willcutt 50th anniversary run when 50 of them were made in all kinds of finishes in 2018. Of course I did some cosmetic mods to make it my own: amber knobs, custom truss cover rod cover, changing the...

    58/15 or 57/08?

    Was just wondering which is preferred (or any pickup for that matter) I'm sort of looking for something that will really ring out on clean harmonics, have great mids but can also play some quality metal/punk tones. I have the stock SE 245 "S" pickups, and while I really do like the sound, I...

    S2 Standard: 58/15 or 85/15 or #7 Pickups?

    Looks like the 2021 S2 Standards have 58/15 pickups, but earlier years, at least 2019, had 85/15. I'm looking hard at getting an S2 Standard Satin. Anybody here played both 58/15 and 85/15 pickups? (Ideally both on S2 Standards, but that's probably asking too much.) What's your impression of...

    NGD - Special Semi-Hollow (Orange Tiger)

    I've historically not been a huge PRS guy but really love the tones that John Mayer gets with Dead & Company and fell in love with the Super Eagle model. However, like most of us, it was definitely beyond my price range. I've tried to scratch the itch a couple different ways but ultimately...

    Should I go 57/08 --> 58/15 in my MC-58?

    The 57/08 really is a nice all-around PAF-style humbucker, I'll admit--and I'm sure there are many who would agree. However, in an ideal world if I could tailor everything, here's what I'd wish to change about the 57/08 pickups in my '11 McCarty 58: a little firmer/more-solid in the (very) low...

    509 vs SH Special

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone owns both of these or played both enough to be familiar with them. I’ve long wanted a 3 pup, HSH type PRS, and these both look like great options. I know the 509 has a different scale length. Otherwise, besides the SH (which is a big difference), the bodies and...

    594 - LT Bridge pickup height

    On my DC594 I find myself constantly pushing the low E string onto the Bridge pickup with the outside of my right hand. I'm leaning on the strings I guess. I was checking the pickup height last night and noticed that the distance from pickup to string is approx. 1mm. If I put a Jazz XL III pick...

    NGD...Oops, I did it again...

    Well, this happened yesterday...new to me Tremonti Baritone Hybrid. Will be setting up tomorrow with a new nut and 10-52's to bring up to D# tuning...obviously not using as a baritone and never intended to with the scale...but a good portion of my guitars are 25.5" inch scale, so will be right...

    Are 58/15 really covered 85/15?

    I keep reading claims about 85/15 and 58/15 being the 'same' pickup except one being covered and the other is not. Is this true? Physically I mean. regardless of what the tone difference would be. Looking at resistance specs, they show the same values. And the EQ pics show 58/15 with slightly...

    58/15 LT Questions

    From all I've heard, these pickups are nice and clear, and split beautifully in the 594's. However, in comparing to the general benchmark historic, they sound a little thin and bright - at least to my ears - in comparison to that classic thicker, creamy tone. The SC594's with LT's seem to get...

    PRS Semi-Hollow vs Hollowbody ii (Core Guitars)

    Custom 24 58/15

    Hello I am new to the PRS world, and had the chance to play my first PRS guitar. Have had my eye on the Custom 24 58/15 for a little while now, and enjoyed a short test drive yesterday. Love the whale blue finish and the look of these limited edition guitars. Like the 58/15 pickups a lot...
