    I have a PRS Studio (8yrs old w/narrowfield pickups) I love the guitar but thinking about changing out the neck pickup to either a 408 or a 58/15 to get a better humbucker sound and single coil sound. My local PRS dealer does not have a 408 model but several with the 58/15. I would like to bring my guitar to the store to compare the sound of the narrowfield, 408, and 58/15 before I send mine to the factory and spend the money.

    I play a very broad cross section of music (although no metal) and would like a little fatter, jazzier sound from the neck.

    The PRS technician was very helpful but hearing is believing. I would like to get a clearer understanding of the tonal differences between these 3 pickups. Can anyone shed any light on this for me? Thanks

    I can't help you, but to say: You may want to move this post over to the Electric Guitars section.

    That's a better location, and you're more likely to get good responses.
