    PRS Torero - goodbye EMGs, hello DiMarzio Gravity Storms!

    Hi there,

    I picked up a PRS Torero recently. Great guitar, and I love PRS' foray into the super-strat. Plays really very well indeed.

    However, I am not a big fan of EMGs. My tech has replaced these with DiMarzio Gravity Storms (Steve Vai's latest pickup set) and also installed a push/pull switch on the tone control for coil splits. A high fret (19th) has also been fixed as there was a 'dead spot' with bends that needed resolving.

    Sounds like a new guitar! Looks gorgeous (the new pickups look great) and sounds amazing. It's a shame really that PRS went with EMGs for this particular guitar -- passives have so much more flexibility!

    Cool! The Terero has really grown on me. I'd like to get one for hacking at some Vai type stuff. Agreed the EMG's would have to go.

    Those look like big frets, too. Kinda uncharacteristic for a shred axe.
