    Member garrett started a thread showing a inside view of his S2 standard. This gave me a pattern to ask you to share pics of your PRSi showing the miracle behind the back plate of the electrics compartment.

    Please give us the type of the model and year of production. I would be interesting seeing differences or analogies.

    I´ll start with my 513, made in 2011. The wiring is a modification by PRS proceeded in 2014.

    Original electronics was like that:

    The so called PCB (printed circuit board). PRS changed from PCB to hand wiring at core model production line in 2014 (I believe the implementation was in late 2013.).

    I´m curious about your entrails.

    Nice, Roger Roy. Look at the grain in the compartment. No insulate lacquer?

    On behalf of g.wizz:

    A look in his 513 AP made in 2013:

    As soon as I opened it I thought the same thing? No foil or copper backing on the back plate or anything either(like my other guitars) What gives?

    I´m not an electrician, but all 8 of my 9 electrics have insulate lacquer in the compartment, my hollowbody not.
    I guess if the guitar has got a solid grounding of its electronics there is no need to do more.
    Lacquer or aluminum foil then seem to be additional assets to reduce impact noises or so.

    thanks Mart for re-posting
    mine has both (shielding paint and foil on the cover plate) and still it picks up the noise like crazy
    granted my house has no ground to hook it too :bawling:

    '91 CE24. Looks like it might have had a pickup swap/reswap at some point. Original HFS/Vintage Bass currently on board.

    I added some resistors to the split circuit after taking these pics

    Strangely I have zero pictures of the inside of my 05 Custom.
