    Yeaaaaah. I finally got my PRS wood library cu22!!

    Hello! I'm happy to join PRS forum and meet you guys!

    I've heard that there are 3 different wire types of 57/08 pickup.

    1.4 conductor
    2.single conductor
    3.single conductor w/ white split wire.

    My guitar pickups are 1st type 4 conductor.

    My question is that, If I got 3rd type pickup(single conductor with white split wire), Can I use it with 4 conductor pickup at the same time?

    Can I use neck pickup 4conductor and bridge pickup single conductor w/ white wire simultaneously?

    My pickup set is mixed with 57/08 for neck and 59/09 for bridge. But because, for me, 57/08 sounds better so I'm gonna try to change it with 57/08 treble.

    When I try to buy that, I found 3rd version of 57/08 on ebay.

    That's why I'm asking now.

    ps. sorry for my horrible English. I just have stayed in the US about 9 months XD.

    And are you guys recommending change it or use original pickups?

    Welcome, the short answer is yes, depending on how you are wiring them up.
