    I was in a conversation last night where a bunch of people were discussing their dream guitar. After sitting and thinking about every custom option, I came up with a pattern thin neck, 24 fret 408.

    What’s everone’s favorite neck pickup combos?

    I’m jealous that you have friends that you can talk dream guitars with! My friends’ eyes glaze over when I get into that stuff, they’re all into ancient, vintage models. Anything after about 1970 makes them roll their eyes.

    That could be because my friends are pretty damn old!

    Or for a slightly different flavor, there's the Brushstroke 24, but I think they all had Pattern Regular necks.

    The 408 neck pickup is a masterpiece. I'm also a huge fan of the 85/15 bass. 58/15 LT for vintage bucker flavor.

    The narrow 408 is perfect! I like a 57/08 in the bridge as well. Narrowfields are not far behind

    I love the versatility my piezo-equipped PRSi bring to the practice/jam or gig.

    But they aren't much of an option outside of PS for the "regular" line models that don't have it (which are currently the CU22/24 and HBII). Those WL 509s we have ordered via Brian's would have been simply marvelous with piezos. But it adds an expense, and not everyone wants it, I get it.

    Hmmm, brings up a point: should I drag along an acoustic to tonight's gig, or keep it simpler by using the P24 on my "acoustic" songs? Hmmm...
