    Hi
    i'm watching this video

    and reading https://www.prsguitars.com/electrics/se/se_mark_tremonti_2018

    may i ask you 2 questions?

    1) what pickups does the prs tremonti se ?
    in the video he said prs 245 but on the linked page Tremonti "S"

    can i modify them to use in a splittable way (single coil /humbucking )

    2) is there a tutorial how setup the prs bridge

    Should be Tremonti "S" pickups, which are 4-conductor so you can split them.

    2.5 mm is the distance from the top of the body to the bottom of the trem. That is to set the correct height for the knife edge screws

    Ok, each of those screws has a knife edge in them. The trem is supposed to sit in those knife edges when you get strings on, and bring it up to tension. The distance between the knife edge and the bottom of the screw edge is probably a mm. So, the screw heads will not sit flush on top of the trem. They are not supposed to.

    Be careful with the bridge screws. They need to be perfectly aligned with each other or they will damage the knife edge on the bridge.

    The US Tremonti Bridge pickup can be split, but not the neck. Not sure about the SE.
