    There's a massive thread about these. Many forum members have them and rave about them.

    I think it's in this video where Brian mentions that it was done the same way as the pick ups on the 408. It isn't an out of phase thing. I think it was for a better tapped sound.



    I love mine. Fantastic guitars!

    Special 22 Semihollow is an awesome guitar! Get one! Love mine (bought within 30 min of the opening of Experience PRS 2018, IIRC... Thanks to Brian's Guitars!).

    There are some that look like this too, not that I'd know anything about that or anything, sort of, maybe, maybe not.

    Latest word is the dealer has filled all of their Special pre-orders but mine and one other.
    Going to be at PRS in a few days. PRS newbie rep sent him the ETA for the wrong guitar so they're going to check
    on it while they're already at the factory.

    Turning a pickup around doesn’t flip the polarity, which is required for the Peter green style out of phase tone
