    Hello, and thanks in advance for any advice.

    I've ordered a set of these pickups to replace those found in my PRS SE Custom 24 7-String - Amethyst.

    I will be taking the guitar to a local technician, but due to my location I have very few options in that regard, and want to make sure I provide all the relevant information to them. I know very little about replacing pickups, so I'm just looking for anything I need to be aware of prior to getting them installed.

    I put the same pickups in my SE-7 and they are fantastic.

    Mine just barely fit into the stock routing with literally zero room to spare.

    Use these two diagrams as a reference. I prefer the screw coils when split, so I would use red - hot, white - ground, black/green - series connection (as shown lower half of second diagram). Bare wire always goes to ground.
