    I did the Power Pins thing. Makes string changes real easy, and didn't change the sound much.

    According to PRS customer service the bridge pins are 5mm in width at the top of the taper just below the button.

    Yes I also tried to change them and found that standard pins are too fat a diameter. Still searching for suitable rep[lacement pins.

    Assuming these are non-standard pins can't you just get a pin reamer (available at Stewmac and by a Google search) and and make the holes a standard size and or taper?

    Been looking for pegs on Ebay . JellyfishAudio have several pegs quoting 5.00 mm top diameter. Unfortunately the ebony ones I wanted were 5.2 mm. May go with aged bone.

    The bridge pins on this guitar are a real PITA! However, that really is one of the few complaints that I have.
