    Dude, we must have the same ears. We are so cool.

    :cool:

    I just had a good look at my SAS NF and realized my pickups were WAY too high. The bridge ring already naturally sits much higher than the neck and middle ... so I dropped all of them and the guitar sounds so much better now. I couldn’t find any pup height specifics for the narrow fields but my neck and middle are about even now.

    I am collecting 1980's PRS guitars now. Even though the new ones are very well made there is something special about the early ones...

    Glad you found the one that floats your boat, after all the looking you did. I call dibs if you ever become senile and sell it. After all, it's blue....................

    I was just thinking, if my wife saw that PRS collection, she might just admit defeat and do the same
    EVIL!

    It’s not evil if it’s what you need.

    Oh, we're cool for sure. I had no idea when I bought that "plain Jane" NF3 that it would be one of the greatest all around guitars I'd ever played.

    So what are your distances to strings now?

    So Casi and SAS NFs, vs. Jim and Santana's. Normally I'd say no contest, but he does have two other things on his side. Archon+ATMA. Two world beaters. That would kind of even it back out, so now it's down to who has the coolest shoes.

    Easy. Casi1 has the coolest shoes.

    And the coolest guitar straps.

    And the coolest hair.

    Need I say more?

    Is this where I tell Jim again that there's a Santana NF out there, just calling his name?

    I’ve got to measure them but by my eye, I can only fit one nickel under the bridge bass side strings and I can’t fit the nickel under the treble strings. I can fit 2 nickels stacked under bass sides of neck and middle pickup and only 1 nickel on the treble side of each. There is more room under the middle treble side than under the neck treble side.

    Basically, I pulled out my stock SAS NF and tried to mimic the heights.

    Simmer down there sassy pants! I will give you a run for your money on shoes and straps. I will concede the hair though since I rock the chrome dome.

    Not vs. - blend.
    SAS NF and Santana are essential elements to a properly balanced collection.
    Casi1 needs a Santana and Bodia needs a 3 pack of NF.

    And I might need a swamp ash Santana. I might even channel my inner Tosca and toss in a piezo. Luckily I have a spare HB and CU24 to trade for it.
