    PRS S2 neck profile not written in tag

    After spending sometime playing my core custom 22, I found its neck profile (wide fat) to be the best for my hands and needs. Having also a S2 Custom 22 with a pattern regular neck, which is a bit thiner than the core model but round and big enough for my liking, I decided to pull the trigger...

    McCarty 594 2017 vs 2020 Changes

    Hello, Forgive me if it’s been asked before, but was hoping some people could weigh in on their opinions of the older McCarty 594s vs the post-2020 ones with the updates / changes. I’m aware the main differences are nitro finish, TCI Pickups, tuners, and maybe the bridge. Do you think a used...

    PRS Gold Top Query

    Can anyone weigh in on this Gold Top. Is this a legit USA PRS ? Only seen the S2 and SE in all gold. The machine heads look cheap and the serial looks suspect. I think the serial translates to early 90s which does correspond however...

    PRS Modern Eagle V Pickup Replacement

    I'm looking at possibly getting a Modern Eagle V, however I would like to swap the 2 Paul's TCI humbuckers for Seymour Duncan Alpha/Omegas. Does anyone know if this is even possible? It looks like the pickup cavities may be too narrow and then there's the matter of electronics and wiring to...

    Please help: PRS 58/15 LT vs high-end single coils?

    Hi guys, I've long fallen in love with the sound of 58/15 LT pickups, so much so that Iìve ordered them on a PRS that will soon arrive at my home. IMVHO 58/15 LT are the pickups that most resemble the PAFs of the Gibson "golden era", as can be heard in this video. Having said that for the...

    Dragon 1 Set in a Superstrat

    Hey hey! A bit of an oddball question, but I'm wondering if anyone here has used Dragon I's in a non-PRS guitar - specifically, a Superstrat style. I know the Dragons were built for the Custom 22. I picked up a set for a decent deal, in the hopes of eventually landing a PRS guitar to put them...

    Open grain on a rosewood neck

    I just bought a used (barely!) 2017 Private Stock 24:08 with a Brazilian rosewood neck. I've owned several PRS with rosewood (Brazilian and Indian) necks but this is the most pronounced grain I've felt under thumb - and I'm a touch concerned about it. Does this need any special treatment...

    PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow - WITHOUT TREMELO

    Hi I have an interest in a PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow, it does not have a tremolo. Initially, I thought it may have been modified but the back of the guitar does not have the access plate on the rear. I have done some extensive searching and can't find any references to a SE Semi-Hollow...

    58/15 or 57/08?

    Was just wondering which is preferred (or any pickup for that matter) I'm sort of looking for something that will really ring out on clean harmonics, have great mids but can also play some quality metal/punk tones. I have the stock SE 245 "S" pickups, and while I really do like the sound, I...
