    SE Standard 24 Serial number, model year and pickups

    Hi, I'm little bit confused. I just got SE Standard 24 that has serial number CTI C73854. I'm trying to find out that what pickups this guitar really has. Reseller keeps telling me that it has HFS and Vintage Bass pickups. I understood that SE Standard 24 guitars this new has already 85/15 S...

    Swapping Screws in Squabbins?

    Say THAT five times fast! So I've got a core guitar with "hybrid hardware," which means gold screws in the squabbin pickups; and I'd like to replace the pickups with another model from the PRS store that do not have gold screws (because after all, they're regular replacement models). But of...

    Installing new pickups on a cu 24 and wiring implications

    Hi everyone, I’ve got a cu 24 2012 and love it, but I’m looking for lower output pickups and have considered installing a set of Thornbuckers. I’ve been wondering whether there would be any wiring consequences that would affect coil splitting options, for instance, will the guitar still have...

    245 "S" vs Dimarzio/Seymour Duncan/others

    Hi! First post here :) I just purchased a SE Zach Myers and I'm really liking the 245 "S" pickups. I have a SE Custom 7 string that I put a pair of Dimarzio PAF 7's in and that I found to sound pretty similar to the 245's. The 245 might have a little more top end, but not that much. Probably...

    PRS 35th Anniversary SE Custom 24

    Hi everyone, I bought a PRS 35th Anniversary SE Custom 24 and it's a really nice guitar. I really like the neck, weight and how it feels overall. I do like the coil-split functionality, but for some reason I don't like the humbucker sounds. This is specially evident with the neck pickup, it...

    Excited about my new PRS that's coming ... Until I came to the forums

    I recently, got back into playing guitar and bought myself a new PRS Custom 24 SE after doing a ton of research. I couldn't try it out because my city is still on lockdown, but overall I was super happy and couldn't wait. It is being shipped and has not arrived yet. I then came across a whole...

    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...

    PRS SE 24 Standard Pickup Upgrade suggestions?

    So... I've been absolutely loving this guitar but the pickups at best i dont care for, at worst i resent. Getting a good articulate clean sound out of them is a struggle, with high gain metal tones things are better but the note definition could be better. I'm looking for an affordable lower...

    NP(ickups)D for my SE Santana

    So, I bought the Santana as a replacement for my 2015 double cut LP Special P-90. I particularly loved the pickups in the Gibby, but the neck was just too shallow for me to really enjoy for long gigs. I stumbled across the 2017 SE Santana... and have truly fallen in love with the guitar's...

    Adding a middle pickup to my S2 Standard 24 - what would be a good choice?

    Hey everyone, first post here on the forum. I've decided to add a middle pickup to my S2 Standard 24 after looking at possibly trading it for an S2 Studio but not being able to find any takers. Need some advice on neck and middle pickups that would get me close to a strat sound, but preferably...

    PRS Pickups without logo?

    Hi Today I received a used PRS SE 24. The seller described the pickups as "PRS Upgraded Pickups", but after checking them, I don't see any logo. I'm not an expert but when I search on internet they all have a PRS logo in the middle. Can you tell me if these are PRS original? maybe a...

    Hello guys, I hope you're doing great! I found a set of 1957/2008 pickups, I would like to know if there's a wiring diagram, is possible use split coil, I have no idea why there's a white cable out the braid. Also what you think about them. Any input is welcome. Thank you!

    Why do I not like the sound of my beautiful McCarty?

    I have a beautiful 2007 McCarty with an amber sunburst finish. I bought it new back in 2007 or 2008. The guitar is perfectly built, stays in tune, intonates well, has good sustain, etc. I want to love the guitar, but there is something about the tone of the guitar that has always left me...

    Hey Pickup Peeps, CE22 Treble Pup Suggestions Needed

    Hey friends, Looking for advice on another lovely guitar. I've got a CE 22 (hog + maple top) with Dragon II's. I don't mind the neck pickup but the bridge and I have a love/hate relationship. I like the punch it has (or can have), but do not like the compression it has when you dig into it...
