    Hey! I own this beautiful PRS SVN that I modded a bit, but now it needs black pickups and black pickup rings! Or maybe no pickup rings at all? Anyone have any ideas on where I could find pickup rings that fit? Or would I potentially be able to completely remove them and just direct mount pickups? Let me know!

    You can remove the rings, but it’s hard to direct mount a pickup that was deigned for rings. You’ll need to put something below it to screw it into, because if you just screw it to the body it’ll sit way too low. You can make it work, but it’s not super simple.

    I think Seymour Duncan sells 7-string pickup rings.

    For the price of shipping and additional import taxes into the US, is it worth it? There probably are more accessible options within the US already... right? Just saying... please ignore if this feels misplaced... carry on, carry on...

    I checked Thomann, shipping would be $30 :lol:

    That being said, I found the Seymour Duncan ones on a site called GuitarElectronics for like $11 shipped so we're good now

    Guitarelectronics.com has a wide variety and their email responses work great, I've never had a problem with them and they're in the States.

    Edit: just saw your response about guitar electronics. I've ordered stuff from them for years and received my packages to British Columbia, Canada within two weeks!

    Your point was a good one.

    I'd still just sharpie it.

    You mean, buy 7 string guitar just to pull the rings off of it?
