    I think the first 54 sets should be numbered to us by card....I would get the Ace of Spades set....etc.....

    First sets sold exclusively to forum members? I think that may be doable!

    I'm in. Somebody get me a card. Might have to go with multiple decks, like a casino.

    and we totally get the "proto" version which are just little bit hotter than the "production" ones. They become the next "Holy Grail" pickups which are lusted after for years to come.

    Affectionately known as "ChainShaw\m/" pickups (or even just ChainShawn's)

    I think I will need 2 sets. as soon you can tell us more, I can confirm. So far, sounds like you are building the pick up set me and The Boss are looking for

    I'll be able to add it to the list of "metal" pickups I use for clean tones, right after the HFS and DII's.

    I think you're going to love the clean tones on these. I think it may be unfair to pigeonhole them in the "metal" category, they are going to work well for anyone looking for defined note separation and clear articulation. They sound huge too!

    I'm just looking out for you guys :)

    I got no skin in this game, I don't play high gain much. But it's fun to watch you guys circle like sharks smelling blood in the water, over pickups you've never even heard. :)

    That did occur to me also, but it reflects the respect for the opinions of Shawn and everyone at PRS. It their jaws dropped, good enough for me.

    It is a bit like that but more than anything it's interest and a bit of fun. The guys at PRS sound excited so why not join in with that?

    Defined, articulate and huge sounding. Can't wait....well....hoping they are given the green light. Just curious: what test guitar(s) have you rocked these bad boys in?
