    594 Mounting rings

    So I finally took my pickup covers off, purely playing reasons, I think they sound more raw and open this way. The issue now is the bridge ring is pretty shallow so the pickup is sticking out and looking ..... not good! Any ideas where I can find decent rings that will fit a 594

    509s need love!

    A couple weeks ago a year or two of looking I picked up my first PRS, a beautiful Charcoal Burst 509. It’s just a fantastic guitar that tonality wise, achieves almost all classic tones in its own beautiful way. It’s a fantastic way to cover almost endless tonal territory without sacrificing a...

    SE 245 2014 pickups and magnets

    I just got a shiny new (to me) SE 245 yesterday and am wondering about the pickup specs. Is there anything official on this? I'm hesitant to mess with a tone I already like, but I'm at least considering a magnet swap to A2s on it at some point in the future, unless they're already A2s, in which...

    Vintage Bass Humbucker Mounting Screws

    Hello everyone, I just bought a Vintage Bass humbucker that I am going to install in another guitar. The problem is I bought it used and it only came with 1 mounting screw— you know, the 2 screws that have springs on them and attach them to the pickguard or body and adjust the pickup height...

    Modern Eagle I: RPs vs 57/08s

    I may be ME1 shopping, and was curious about people’s experiences, preferences between the originals with RP pups vs the ones they released about 5 years ago, some with 57/08s. My understanding is that the RPs are hotter, but I know little else (does anyone have the resistance values from that...

    I just bought an uncovered 2018 59/09 treble on Reverb. Now all I need is a 57/08 bass and a guitar to put it in! I'm thinking maybe a used S2 of some sort...

    PRS 513 - Neck PU signal disappeared

    Hi, I have a 2013 PRS 513, that I just got back from setup from my local shop. The work included change of volume pot, which require removing the PCB and possible other disassembly in the cavity. I suspect something must have happened to a connection during this work. Now the neck pickup is...

    Lollar pickups in an S2?

    Hello, I'm thinking about replacing the pickups in my S2 Custom 24. I was recently introduced to a strat with lollar pickups and I loved the sound, so I'm wondering how they would sound in my S2. Any recommendations for S2 replacement pickups? I play alternative, gospel, blues, rock... Thanks!

    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...

    #7 Bridge Pickup

    So I pickup up a 2017 PRS S2 Singlecut Satin recently and I definitely love the guitar. With that said, I am very much on the fence with the stock #7 bridge pickup. I find that I don't mind and many even like how it mixes with the neck #7 in the middle position; however, when I just play that...

    Starla replacement bridge humbucker?

    hi guys, a question if anyone has any experience here.. I want to replace the Starla bridge humbucker. It’s got a great pick attack, it’s bright and kinda like a Tele. However, I find it’s too compressed and doesn’t have any punch. I find it’s too even for me. I don’t want a hot humbucker, it’s...

    Seymour Duncan Custom Shop '78 Model

    Hello! :) I don't think I've seen any info on this pickup so I thought I'd share my experience! It's the VH pickup apparently, although due to licensing etc, they can't say so. Described as a PAF rewind, mine is listed on the pack at 9.0k, Alnico II, initalled MJ which is apparently a good...

    Replace Stock Pickup

    Hi everyone! I would like to replace stock bridge pickups on my PRS SE CUSTOM 24 (2016). I would like to have more sustain, more mids and just a little more output. I think that stock pu is good for studying but in live and in recording studio it seems to me....mmm... dull. No body, little...

    Ordering a CE with Pickup Covers?

    I have been thinking about ordering a new PRS for a while now, and was originally set on an S2 Cu22 Semihollow, but swapping out the pickups for an American set. Recently I found the CE 24, and have been leaning more towards that one. I only have one issue, though, and it's that I'm not the...

    Pole Piece's on my Custom 22's Dragons won't move

    Apologies if this is the dumbest question. I just tried to adjust the pole pieces on my covered Dragon pickups and realized they won't move. Is this the way the cover is and I'd have to remove the covers to adjust the poles? Or is this an anomaly? Never bothered to check on this since I bought...

    S2 C24+57/08=SG (not a pop quiz) ;-)

    Hey there, So, A bit of a follow up for everyone who has been so kind helping with pickup choices and what have you. I got my 57's, installed them covered - tuned up struck a chord... and was puzzled. None of the 'warmth' everyone talks about, instead VERY serious treble. Articulate and...

    Just one pickup - (sort of) poll

    Hi, Imagine that, for whatever reason, Paul and company were only allowed to make one pickup. Which would you choose for them to make? Truth be told I'm pretty confused by their offerings and figure you folks (who know way more than me) might school me. Set your own criteria for choosing -...

    Original S2 pots replaced with core - question about treble

    So I ordered the core volume and push/pull tone pot from PRS HQ. Got and installed them today. Matched everything exactly - moved the resistors to the new tone, etc. The difference is startling. I haven't adjusted the pickups at all - I wanted to sort of A/B with the original, overseas...
