    Hoping someone can help me out:

    I need the measurement from the edge of the pickup ring to the closest edge of the trem on a regular humbucker PRS, in mm if possible. I'm assuming it's the same for 22 and 24 fret guitars...

    Then, we get to play the game of guessing what the hell I'm up to... :p

    Cheers!

    Well I guess that's accurate with a tolerance of + or - 349mm ;)

    I guess it would also depend on the pickup ring. I traded my stock pickup rings out from plastic to rosewood so there may be a variance between them.

    I can't get the ruler under the strings very good, but it's either a full centimeter, or 9mm. That's on a Cu24. Figured I could use the exercise, so I just ran upstairs to check the DGT. Looks like a full cm. It was easier to see on the all white DGT.

    I smell a router warming up!

    Thanks buddy!

    And yes, looking to finish a couple of projects over the next few weeks.

    I just realised I've got mods planned for all 6 of my guitars :eek:

    Either a Roland GK-3 or a Fishman Triple Play...

    Nope, but coincidentally, that's happening to a different guitar ;)
