    Hi guys. I need some advice. I have a PRS custom 24 with the metal pickups. I want to replace them with the tremonti set, so got them recently. Just discovered the bridge is fine as it has the red, white, green etc wiring. But the neck only has the one or 2 conductor wire! Any advice if the neck pickup can still be used in a custom 24 with the 5 position selector switch??

    The tremonti neck pickup is not capable of being split so I don't think positions 2 and 4 would be compatible with it in a 5 way blade switch. The bridge pickup is capable of a coil tap though.

    Thanks, just gonna put the treble pickup in. Any advice on the wiring for putting a tremonti into the custom 24 floyd? The original metal pickup only had 3 wires but the tremonti has 4. I think black is hot but unsure where to put the rest yet

    GET A MIRA BASS!!!! It works very well with the Tremonti bridge and I think you can use it with the 5 way blade setup. The Mira is also a 4 lead wire setup for coil tapping.
