    Question Is it possible to redo the 5 way blade switching on the P22?

    I'd really like to get from the five way blade:
    1) Just the bridge pickup humbucker
    2) Just the bridge pickup split single coil
    3) both - singles or humbuckers - whatever will work
    4) Just the neck split single coil
    5) Just the neck humbucker

    It hit home the other day trying to play "Mary Jane's last dance" that I wanted my single coil sounds back. I also heard David himself during a DGT demo get that bridge Tele pickup sound out of a DGT - I want that tone back. So go buy a DGT? Right? Yes - if it had a PIEZO. ;-)

    So I wonder with the electronics for the PIEZO - is it possible to rewire it to get these combinations?

    You could try a 3-way blade out of a 408, and add a push-pull (or push-push) coil tap pot, just to simplify it a little bit.

    Not sure if the 3-way has the same footprint as the 5-way, but by the looks of the pics it seems like the same size (can anyone confirm?)

    Then you just need to convince Shawn to sell you one!

    I think this PTC mod posted by Shawn might do what you want. http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthre...ghlight=switch

    I'm considering this for my Custom 24 and my P22.

    Question

    THANKS! That's pretty close - a little different implementation but it would be cool to have 8 sounds under trigger plus the Piezo.

    Shipping back and forth from California would cost more than the mod....

    Paging Shawn@PRS - Any chance PTC would sell this as a kit like the 5 way rotary to toggle conversion kit?
