    Saw the spec sheet on Instagram.

    What's the deal with the 85/15 multi-tap pickups???

    Black Paisley case...

    Similar to the taping system that is on the 408, mini toggles for each pickup.

    Are they also set up like the 408s such that there isn't a huge level differential when you split the coils?

    Good question, I don't know much about the multi-tap system, but there is some info in the PRS book (Google "PRS multitap") which suggests each pickup has a tap wire which allows for some different voicings.

    This is also up on the PRS site:

    Thanks for posting that link. Yeah, it's gotta be, they're specifying the pickups as '85/15 Multi-tap Treble' as opposed to just '85/15 Treble' as they are shown elsewhere.

    I just watched this video again:


    Yeah, want. That combination (3-way blade with two mini-toggles) might be the best combination of simplicity and flexibility for me. Might have to revisit the 5-way blade before I show up tomorrow, but it's the middle of the night here, don't want to bother the neighbors.

    And they looked gorgeous as well. I was sorely tempted at Experience but got a 594 instead.

    Must....restrain...fists...of....dollars....

    I've been convinced for a while that the only thing PRS that I need is a set of 85/15's; there is no reason to get a guitare just for the pickups.... until now...

    Damn, that configuration is rather inviting...
