    Ariel is a monster player. I believe he once hung out at the first PRS forum in the early '00s.

    Yes, throw in a P90 sized HB in the bridge and you get a great Super Strat

    it was in there when I got it. I believe it’s a Dimarzio. Not totally sure which model. It rips though!

    Funny thing is I may have that pickup somewhere in a drawer. Years ago one my first Guitars when I was a kid was a harmony hollow body and I remember putting a dimarzio pickup like that in the Bridge. I remember it kicking ass.

    I think it works great with the P90’s. Nice bold single coil sound and then a hot bridge for lead stuff.

    Quite “Gary Moore-esque”.

    Wow, that is gorgeous and that neck, I’m a sucker for some flame!
