    I guess I'm old school and prefer the old style humbucker look and not the rectangle modern look.

    What do you all like?

    Think PRS will revert back someday?

    Nope.

    If you put in the time and effort to develop a signature look, would you revert back if it meant looking like everyone else?

    I LOVE the squared off bobbins! Looks so much better than the rounded ones. I ordered my Private stock with the 85/15's!

    I also love the squabbins. To each his own.

    Start a new trend - NO bobbins...

    If they aren't covered, they gotta be squabbins!

    If it's bare, it better be square.

    Yeah, there’s no but, however my WSL #2 uncovered RP sounds pretty great after lowering it and burying the pole pieces a bit.

    I hated the square bobbins at first, but they fit the ring much better and give PRS a unique look.

    Just realize that only square waves can come off square pickups. Everyone knows this. It's gonna jack up your tone.

    You've been warned...

    I’ll take squabbins, covered, or old school uncovered.

    I’m kind of a slut.
