    PRS SE Custom 24-08 Pickup Covers

    I recently added a PRS SE Custom 24-08 to the collection and am wanting to put nickel covers over the zebra pickups. More for aesthetics than anything, but during my interwebs research have found it might effect the tone. On that, I'm seeing where it might "mellow" the highs, which I'm fine...

    Splitting / tapping pickups 2008 semi hollow which has no coil split

    I have an SE Custom semihollow which I bought in 2008. It pre dates when PRS added the coil split to this model. It has zebra humbuckers, 3 positions, no coil split or tap.

    Closest pickup to…

    …a Paul’s Guitar? I’ve got a core one and love it, but I’ve also started my own scratch-builds again and would like to try similar electronics in them. Funnily enough, of all the guitars I’ve played and owned I’ve yet to try any mini-humbuckers or firebird types, and I’m assuming the PGs might...

    PRS 58/15 LT "S" pickups

    I have these pickups in my '21 PRS S2 McCarty 594. They sound terrible! Very muddy. On coil split the volume drops of about 50%. I see the pots and pickups are made in Korea. Seriously? Very disappointed. This guitar is not inexpensive. Supposed to be a "USA" guitar. I also noticed a...

    Bought used on Marketplace. Regardless of the switch position, I am getting output from both pickups. I’ve tested this with a screwdriver. Tone pot works, coil split works, volume pot works. I looked at the wiring and it doesn’t look like it’s been modified at all. Anybody know what the issue...

    PRS SE Standard 24 Pickup upgrade

    Hi I have got PRS SE standard 24 few months back. It plays great and smooth. Only thing I would like to change is the pickups. I use VOX practice amp to practice normally.

    59/09 in an SE 245? Is it a worthy upgrade?

    I recently got a 245 SE guitar - I absolutely love it! It plays very well and its become my go to 'everyday guitar'. I was never a person to replace pickups in guitars - literally have never done this. I currently play through a Fractal Audio FM9 Turbo, into stereo studio monitors (Yamahas). I...

    Switching options on PRS SE Custom 22

    Hi, I have a 2018 PRS SE Custom 22, and was wondering which coils are active in the 85/15 S pickups when using the push/pull. I've tapped a screwdriver on the pole pieces and it seems both the screw and slug coils are still active in each pickup when split? What's going on?
