I'm looking to buy my first PRS in a few months and may have to order since the dealer around here don't stock every models. I tried a few Custom 24 and McCarthy in the past but have yet to lay my hands on a 513 or 408.

Coil Splitting is very important to me, so the "new" 408 MT might be exactly what I am looking for. I've read a few times that its volume does not drop much when going from bucker to single-coil tone. How is the 513 in this regards?

I'm into blues, classic rock and jazz. I am not really a "trem guy" and was considering buying a stoptail until this video had me reconsider the trem due to the tone difference

Could anybody who owns/played both a 513 and 408 comment on their tone/pickup?

Thank you,
