    Hand-written White label pickups

    Hello all, I have been lurking around the forum for some time for some tips and opinions on pickups. Well so it's my first time switching pups for my old PRS guitar. I own a 1995 PRS CE24 and swapped out HFS/VB set for a pair of Dragon 1's. In case if anyone seeks my personal thoughts: I love...

    Tremonti Treble vs HFS in a Custom 22?

    Hi, I own an SE Custom 22 with a Gibson Dirty Fingers in the bridge (was a big Blink 182 fan at the time I put it in), and I also own a Tremonti SE with the US Tremonti pickups in it which I love the sound of and I’m considering replacing the Dirty Fingers with a Tremonti in the CU22. Has...

    PRS Listening?? - Long Pickup Legs don't fit! ):-(

    So I went out and bought a HFS humbucker brand new from Thomann for my USA Custom. You can see the product page below, all looks normal, nothing to see that's out of the ordinary. https://www.thomann.de/ie/prs_pickup_hfs_treble.htm I got it yesterday and went to install it last night and it...

    HFS in a Swamp Ash Special?

    Hey guys, Had anyone used a HFS in a maple neck SAS? How was it? Guitar doesn’t feel overly twangy, I never found the HFS too bright anyway.

    Got my 245 back from being refretted, so many pickups in and out of that guitar over the years, so much playing, expensive PAFs, Duncans, Custom winds, you name it. I’m coming home from work the other day, this comes on. And it all came back to me. This tone man, this is the tone that hooked...

    PRS SE with toggle switch - CE Wiring

    I have a 2011 SE Custom 24 with a 3 way toggle switch that I'm trying to upgrade with USA HFS and Vintage Bass pickups from the stock SE pickups with 2 wires. The USA pickups come with 3 wires (red, white and black) and shield. From my understanding, the seller took them from a Custom 24 with a...

    S2 Pickups vs Core

    Hey everyone! I was just curious if anyone had compared the S2 pickups to their Core counterparts. For instance, I have an S2 Custom 24, which has the S2 HFS/VB set. I'm wondering if there would be much, if anything, to gain from upgrading to the core set. I play a lot of hard rock type...

    a few months ago I purchased a '92 EG2 with two domino's and a HFS. The domino's sound great, but when I engage the HFS the tone is too bright. I realize that the wood plays a part in this, considering my CE24 with HFS/VB sounds amazing. My question is, has anyone else had this same issue...

    HFS and Single coil neck PU?

    A few months ago I picked up a 1996 CE24 (mahogany body, maple top/neck). I'm in love with it. The only thing I miss is throaty growl of a neck single coil (fender or P90 style). I'm looking for something to replace the Vintage Bass that's in it. The VB is a stellar pup and it will be put to use...
