    I couldn't resist any longer, just ordered a treble pickup :rock:
    It will go in my McCarty Std, I do believe, with a 5909 in the neck.

    Chances are this will end up on the double of my guitar tracks in a few weeks. I'll see if I can have the studio isolate the track and give me a copy as a clip...I'm sure we'll see more clips before then but...

    Sorry if someone's already asked this, but Shawn, any chance of these coming out
    in a 7-stringed version? Just got myself the SE custom 7, and the bridge pup could do
    with some of that \m/ bite :)
    Here's a clip with the stock ones from a test rec done yesterday.

    Hi Richard,

    We don't wind any 7 string pickups in-house, so I doubt we'll see 7 string \m/ pickups any time soon. But who knows, Paul may all of a sudden get into 7 string guitars and then the flood gates will open.

    It's a long shot, but knowing Paul I wouldn't say it's beyond the realm of possibility. :dontknow:

    The TV show "Gearz TV" will have an upcoming episode featuring a PRS guitar. The show is themed around Heavy Metal and a PRS guitar salvaged from the Nashville flood will be featured along with a vehicle overhaul. I thought the \m/ pickups would be a terrific tie-in with the theme of the show, so prototype \m/ pickups were sent along with new electronics and hardware.

    Here is a snippet of the press release if you are interested in watching the episode featuring PRS and the \m/ pickups.


    Check out the new Premiere of Episode 10: “Ray Barton Engines/V8 Interceptor Interior”, Premiering Tuesday, June 25, 2013 @ 8:00pm/EST on SPEED Channel featuring PRS Guitars: Electronics & Pick-ups (Interceptor Guitar)… and don’t forget to set your DVR!!

    The premiere will also re-air at the following times:

    Jun 25, 2013 @ 11:00PM/EST
    Jun 30, 2013 @ 7:30AM/EST
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 5:30PM/EST

    And a Diezel...

    It arrives here today. I'll put it on a plane to your house next Monday for the comparison.

    Any thoughts on these versus a Tremonti treble? I think they are both ceramic magnets?
