    Mods to Custom 22 questions.

    Hi all, Just curious if anyone has tried the Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega set in a Custom 22 (as opposed to the usual 24)? I’m considering the swap but wanted to know people’s experiences first. Original pickups are 58/15TM Also, I wanted to change the pickup rings to black. I have looked...

    Parallel Axis Distortion + Blues Saraceno on my PRS SE Custom 24 Floyd

    Just upgraded the pickups on my PRS SE Custom 24 Floyd from PRS 85/15 "S" pickups to Seymour Duncan Parallel Axis Distortion + Blues Saraceno. I know that Blues Saraceno pickup is originally designed for the bridge position, but I installed it on the neck position because: 1. It was really...

    Swapping SE Custom 24 Pickups for Seymour Duncan

    I am swapping out the SE Custom 24 85/15 "s" pickups for a set of Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz pickups. I have googled but cannot find a straightforward schematic for wiring the new SD pickups onto the SE Custom 24 electronics. Can someone please provide me with a link to this?

    Mark Holcomb SE Underrated

    I decided it was beyond time to have a guitar dedicated for downtuning. So I got a brand new 2022 MH for a great price. Absolutely killer SE. I’d say it’s up there with the SS SE for killer value and incredible pickups. The fact it has $300 pickups stock is absolutely insane. The knock on SE...

    Capacitors for SE Mira?

    I have an SE Mira. Does anyone know what the stock capacitors are? There are 2 on the tone and a different 2 on the volume. I don't know anything about caps but I need to replace the pots and switch. The push/pull tone no longer does the coil-split and I hate the audio taper volume; no matter...

    Is there a direct clone of the 85/15 pickup on the market?

    I'm looking to try a replacement set in my Custom 24 SE. Like many, I've never been a big fan of the stock pickups, they're kinda dull. I'd like to try something which is as close to the core 85/15 pickup as possible, so I can see if I like the sound of it. If I do, then one day I'll buy a real...

    Tell me why I shouldn't..? (SE impulse-buy content)

    Can anybody tell me why I shouldn't, just on a whim, buy an SE Custom 24--new, or lightly used--and throw some locking tuners and zebra Seymour Duncan JB & Jazz pickups into it? (I was first thinking of the Vaughn Skow "PRS" replacement set, but heck these SD's are even $80 cheaper and arguably...

    Which Seymour Duncan or Dimarzio pickups are most similar to 85/15s?

    The Dimarzio pickup site lists each pickup with a relative output number for bass, mids, and treble, plus overall output, example bass-6 mid-7.5 treble-5 output 380 so you can compare pickups relative to each other. Does anyone have an idea how the PRS 85/15s pickups EQ curve and output compare...

    NGD - SE Custom 24, NPD - JB/Jazz set

    Ordered this new SE Custom 24, based solely on looks and description, hoping for a great feel, and great, unique sound. I hate to say that I was partly disappointed. Although I loved the look, and the guitar functioned perfectly, the fret ends were rough and I really didn't like the sounds of...

    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...

    2017 PRS SE Zach Myers electronics upgrades

    Long time reader, first time poster. 1. So, I have been pretty happy with my purchase. However, the pickups seem to lack a little life, so I am ordering Seymour Duncan JB / Jazz set. 2. Like many others, I have had tuning problems. So, a Tusq XL nut is on the way. 3. Lately, I have also...

    Pickup Swap to Seymour Duncan

    Hey all, I am new to this forum, and may have missed a previous post in my search about this. I have a PRS Custom 24 with \m/ pickups and i would like to switch them to the Seymour Duncan Alpha/Omega. I understand that Seymour Duncan has a wiring diagram on their website for the 2 Hum, 1 Vol, 1...

    Pickup Options for '16 Tremonti SE Custom

    Hi people! I recently had a 2016 Tremonti SE Custom and love it apart from one thing: the bridge pickup. When choosing the guitar I agonised about holding out for the 2017 model but came to the conclusion that while I love Mark's playing....I ain't Tremonti and want the guitar to be a versatile...

    Replace pickups in PRS SE FR with Seymour Duncan SH-6 Set

    Hello, I've got a PRS SE Custom 24 FR, which is a great guitar, love the feel and playability of it, great value for money too, but I'm wondering if the stock pickups are a little cheap sounding? Especially the lower notes with a lot of overdrive create unpleasant clashing overtones without the...

    Brightening Santana III sound with SD Slash set?

    Hi, I have a Santana III and I absolutely like the looks, feel and the playability of the guitar. The pickup sound is quite ok, but for me it seems to be perhaps a bit too dark and perhaps a bit too muddy at the bass strings. I've tried to adjust the pickup heights and pole pieces and now I'm...
