    Hollowbody Standard - Piezo Volume Control Issue

    Hi, I'm working on a borrowed guitar, hence my ignorance! I just have a question about how it's meant to work. Everything seems to be fine when using two outputs and two amps - one volume for magnetic pickups and one for the piezo. When plugged into just the mag/piezo output, and the mini...

    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...

    PRS SE Hollow body Piezo

    Finally looking to bring one of these into my arsenal. I am curious, for those that already have one: 1. Mixing the clean piezo and the distorted humbuckers, curious how the blending of that sound works as it would be the first time I have ever done that. My assumption is blend the clean...

    Wireless system for Piezo

    I just bought a PRS SE Hollowbody II Piezo, and am looking for a wireless sytem that is compatible. What ones have worked with this guitar, or is this even possible with the active piezo pickup? Thanks in advance. (Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere - I did search).

    Hollowbody II With Piezo or Without

    Hello everybody, I was wondering if the piezo being installed in a core Hollowbody II affects the tonal quality of the magnetic pickups if the piezo is disengaged. What I’m asking is if there were two identical core Hollowbody II’s with the only difference being one had the piezo installed and...

    NGD: Private Stock #8346 'Daenerys' (594 ME1 513 P22 Chimera)

    So folks, this is by far my most special NGD yet, in the making for more than a year. Also, my first time speccing and designing a guitar exactly to my needs. The base: the Les Paul..cough, cough... 594 The PRS that first won me over was my 2017 594 Singlecut, a guitar which has since evolved...

    Belated NGD .... my first burst

    So I'm in the UK for a few months and as I was far away from all my guitars (in Connecticut) I decided to buy myself a Christmas present as I haven't bought a guitar for a couple of years. It's my first burst finish guitar as all my other PRSi have just been solid colours. I like that this...

    My dream guitar - HBII with rosewood neck

    Hey, hey! Years ago when I got my first 2003 Hollowbody and after experiencing the feel of a naked rosewood neck I always wished for a HB with one. But PRS said they would never make them as they were too neck heavy, bla bla bla. But as always, things change and PRS did make a few non PS HB's...

    P24 into PA

    Long-time PRS player here and I recently picked up a sweet 2012 P24. My question is about running the piezo pickup through the PA. I'm running into a Radial PRO DI box but would like to have some tone control/EQ on my end and not just at the PA. Any recommendations on a stompbox/device for that...

    Help me find an old friend < PRS HBI McCarty Content >

    Most of us at one point or another have sold a guitar we wish we could get back and this is my story. I was fortunate enough to get a PRS HBI for graduation in 2005. My parents are not big spenders but they knew how long I had wanted one and I was fortunate to be given one. I played that...

    School me on Piezo's

    Hey gang, Looking to dive back into the core game and want a PRS with Piezo. I had an HBI in 2005 that I foolishly sold but would love to get back in with another piezo guitar. I played an HBII and a Custom 22 P today at the Nashville Guitar Center (neither were in colors I prefer) but...

    Piezo with neck single coil (or splitted hb)

    I find the p22 is an amazing guitar! But I nearly never use the humbucker on the neck position. I think it’s a shame that doesn’t exists a p408 (408 with piezo system), a studio piezo or a p22 with splittable neck position. I am the only one? A p408 would be a killer guitar, with every sound one...

    NGD: CU22 Piezo Maple Fretboard

    A/B'd that guitar against another 4 USA customs, I'm happy to report it's absolutely amazing! My custom 24 (the brown one I'm holding in the picture) was already quite present, bright and sustained particularly well when I bought it. This CU22 has the same sustain, slightly less low mids and...

    Details on the 2017 A10E's electronics?

    I've seen a metric crap ton of great demos, and some high level discussions that gloss over the electronics as active piezo under-saddle. I understand the tone/volume control setup and where the battery is tucked away. I was hoping to find some actual meat on the electronics: is it a PRS...
