    YES! Just the kind of I wanted. And they're covered! Makes me wonder if PRS is wiretapping me.

    Thank you!

    I would love to know some more details. HFS pickups are 15K with a ceramic magnet. Is this like Spinal Tap, "It goes all the way to 15.7"?

    Here is a little back story on these pups: http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthread.php?3781-prototype-pickups&highlight=prototype

    Currently only offered with covers

    Different wire than the HFS which gives it a fuller tone and clearer cleans
