That's a bummer to hear... was eyeing a 3 pickup soapbar Custom 22.
For what it’s worth, I played a 3 pickup CU22 off the GC Used wall a while back, and decided the next day to go back and buy it. It was a steal, and was gone by the next afternoon before I got back. Didn’t love the pickups but didn’t hate them either. Kinda like a “oh, OK, cool” type thing. That seems to be pretty much the standard feelings on them. Not bad, just a little underwhelming.
Are PRS guitars originally without floyd rose?
Swap pickups after then?
True... I guess I have always felt that, if you spend $3500-5k on a guitar, it should be perfect. Then again this is PRS so the number should be more like $13k lol.
I think I saw the same triple P90 one on kijiji nearish me for a year. Buddy didnt seem to understand used pricing, especially for "less desirable" models. Not sure if it actually sold.
Grab the P90 594 instead
From what I've read, PRS spec'd them with ceramic magnets. I think he was looking for more output, but it made them harsher, which isn't what your typical P90 guy is looking for.
I'm pretty sure the modern P90s are still Duncan, but like the evolution in PRS humbuckers the P90s are also more vintage spec.
Any experience with the latest Gen III tremolo and if it's any noticeably better than the Gen II? I'm curious how much difference larger threads would really make.
I had both... really hard to say it made much difference sound wise to be honest. Maybe it did but both trems sounded good to me with the guitars as a whole.
I think the gen 3 looks cool though.
Most PRS that have trems use a traditional type. There have been some more recent PRS models with OFRs (Torrero, SE Cu24 FR, core Cu24 FR).
A Northern Lights Tremonti would end me.
Purple bruiseburst or whatever they call it looks pretty damn sweet too IMO
I'm partial to Angry Larry myself for obvious reasons
But yeah a Nothern Lights one would be insane.
I have one and it is amazing
What is everyone's thoughts on the S2 series?
I don't see much about these. I find myself loving my SE Custom 24, so I keep looking at a S2 Custom 24. I like the idea of a deeper bevel, and a thicker neck. I don't like archtop guitars, so I don't really think about the Core series too much.
Solid guitars, really nice. Real sleepers.
The quality is certainly there, I'm just stupid and can't get over that they look like SEs. That's my problem though.
S2's are great guitars. Personally, I love the S2 Satin series. Very inexpensive (for a USA PRS), great quality, and lots of mojo.
