    Burstbuckers and HFS/VB are quite different pickups. I recommend taking stock of what you want to change from the SE pickups that are in there now. Go from there to choose new pickups, or else you...

    There are about a gazillion aftermarket pickup makers.

    If you want another SE 245 pickup, keep an eye out on eBay. May take a while.

    Another option is to send your pup off to a winder who may...

    Totally legit. I was going to point out that the switch tip didn't match, it wouldn't have left the factory mis-matched to the rings, but the text explains why.

    The black back is normal for certain finishes, usually the darker ones. I'm guessing the one in the pictures is Emerald Green, though it looks a bit more pale than usual, maybe because of the bright...

    It's my opinion that people were less willing to order the Hollowbody in the bolder finishes. In the early 00's, it seemed like every other one was Dark Cherry Sunburst. Tons of them in the other...

    Mine is in rare company. I don't think many were made in turquoise, which is part of why I ordered that color. Definitely stands out.

    Which version do you have? Maybe buy a different one to give...

    So the crux of the biscuit is you want a suitable back-up for the Hollowbody on a budget.

    Not with PRS, but I had similar issues with a Graphtech trem nut on another guitar.

    I'm a big advocate of bone. It's a hard, long-wearing material that sounds great.

    They only did a small number of them with center block. In 2010, I think? Otherwise, they're all gutted out except for the sound post. It's all done by CNC machines.

    Killer man! Maybe it's just the pics, but it looks dark for violin amber. I think it may be Wraparound Dark Cherry Sunburst. Did it come with the hang tag? Either way, it's a beaut.

    Nice. My HBII is a 2002 as well. Violin amber is a great color. It'll definitely bring something new tone-wise, but it should feel pretty comfortable.

    No, they've gone to raw brass on a few hardware pieces because they think it sounds better. Non-plated brass ages pretty quickly, so the goldish color will dull in no time.
