    I have a 2020 DGT. How can I verify if it has the TCI pups?

    Thanks,

    I do not believe there have been any announcements about David Grissom changing his pickups. The spec page does not mention any update to them either, so I expect they may never be "TCI"d unless David starts looking for a refinement to how they sound.

    The PRS page for the DGT says "For 2020, PRS has updated this model with TCI-tuned pickups and nitro over celluose (CAB) finish." I don't know how to verify a particular guitar has the TCI pickups unless the hang tag says so.

    If it's a 2020, it will have them.

    I wonder if they changed the MODCAT code for the revised pickups?

    I think the pickups, themselves, aren’t TCI, the electronics are.

    My hang tag had it listed as such.
