    Excellent news!

    A couple questions though.

    Will the 57/08s be offered like this any time soon?

    Also, I just had ordered a 3 way push pull drop in assembly from you guys and am planning on doing the conversion to that from the 5 way rotary on my 2010(?) Custom 24 (in my avatar). It was LTD edition with covered 57/08s but with the rotary and I am going to change it to a toggle and push pull. Will the 59/09s with the new size of bobbins fit in my guitar without having to get new pickup rings? And I assume those would work with my new 3 way push pull assembly too.

    Hey there^^^^

    The "Squabbins" (square bobbins) 59/09 will fit into any existing PRS humbucker cavity and will work with the old style pickup rings. No modifications are needed!
    The 59/09's are compatible with a toggle switch and push/pull tone pot, but the electronics will need to be modified slightly.

    Check out the two different wiring diagrams online.

    Will there ever be Zebra coil squabbins? Or will they just be black?

    DiMarzio trademarked the double-creme bobbin pickup decades ago, and they are not bashful about enforcing that trademark.

    Just bought a pair today, but they're not the ones I wanted. I wanted the "burnt" cover version.

    Awesome!

    Instantly fell in love with the 57/08's, then loved the hotter 59/09 bridge, but head over heels with 53/10s (cleaner warmer) in my Experience PRS '12 P22

    Agreed. Do your 53/10's "split"? If not, do yourself a favor and get the required mod. A split 53/10 in the neck position of my SAS is glorious.

    In general, the neck pickup of the 53/10 set is perhaps my favorite neck pickup of all time!

    Still love the 57/08s, especially the bridge. What great pickups PRS is making these days!!

    When will the 57/08s be available, any time in the near future?

    I'm pretty sure I saw a vid where Paul was asked that. It seemed pretty unlikely any time soon but he didn't completely rule it out.

    A push/pull isn't required. You can use a simple toggle switch if you just want to use the humbucker mode. The push/pull pot would allow you to coil tap the pickups.

    If Paul has his way, the 57/08 will never be available for sale outside of the PTC. If I have my way, ...well.

    Thanks. Is a push/pull pot compatible on a 2012 HBII with piezo?
