    The middle pickup is definitely an awesome tone!

    Yeah, something's going wrong there. You should be able to bend all over the place and not have problems. The nut on that guitar should be cut for 10s. If you're not used to the tuners: as you string up, you'll first want to turn the tuning key so you can stick the string straight through the nut to the end of the headstock. Then gently pull the string taut and tighten down the tuner's locking screw firmly with a nickel or penny. You should have a full wrap or less on the tuner once it's tuned up to pitch.

    I spy a 2012 SAS NF Studio on the bay right now. The maple neck is SICK...

    Someone please buy it so that it can stop torturing me.

    If you're talking about the tuners on the Studio, pull the string through, thumb tighten the screw, then give it another quarter turn with a quarter, or nickel. Snip the sting, tune. Should be no wraps on that tuner peg. Definite issues if there are.

    I spent a good bit of time with my narrowfields yesterday, and might again today. Position 4 & 5 are a long way from the typical PRS sound.

    For the millionth time, you'll pry my NF3 out of my cold dead hands, and NOT before! (Unless you trade me one with the pretty birdies on the fingerboard. ;))

    Guitar players are a curious bunch, the NF's may have not sold well because they didn't look like anything else. Lots of people hold true to a big nickel covered box or a thin white box with magnets sticking out.. anything else is suspect to some...

    I gig a 2011 Studio exclusively, and I gig a lot.
    Does everything that I need as a cover band guitarist, with the benefit of only having to carry one guitar.
    When the NF's came out, I think that PRS believed they would be the "next big thing" in pickups.
    Didn't work out that way, but I don't believe their expectations were wrong.
    Fabulous pickups and combined with the 57/08, pretty much can't beat it.

    Love my 2012, got it as-new for $1700 CAD, that's like $1200 US. And no it's not pink!

    I've still got mine too. It is very versatile. The only thing I don't like about it is that my pick drags the middle pickup all the time. Not a fan of the natural finish either but it sounds great!

    I brought mine when I seen all the tonal changes I need. I feel the reason they pulled them was they were costly to make. All money making guitars have a greatly known guitarist plays it. They feel they will get the same tone if they
    If they play thier artist signature. I love the tones I can get with the NF PU's.

    If you’re not a fan of the natural finish, I could look after it for you, for a while! Just saying ;)
