    I think we need Chris (CRGTR) to do a video test of these!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    YES! Just the kind of I wanted. And they're covered! Makes me wonder if PRS is wiretapping me.

    Thank you!

    I would love to know some more details. HFS pickups are 15K with a ceramic magnet. Is this like Spinal Tap, "It goes all the way to 15.7"?

    Different wire than the HFS which gives it a fuller tone and clearer cleans

    I like the sounds of that...I think. I'm wondering if they are brighter. Fuller makes me think no, which is good. By clearer, are we talking cleaner or more defined - or a bit of both maybe?

    I'm not really in the market for a neck pickup, but a bridge I might grab. I might have to yank the cover off though if I really dig the pickup a lot.

    Hmmmm how do you think these would sound in a rosewood-necked PRS, Shawn? If it has more clarity and nicer cleans than the HFS but is still a hot pickup that sounds sweet in theory, but would it be much lower in clarity than the lower-output stuff like the Artist V or DGT sets in an RW-necked PRS? Detuned metal is the end goal of the guitar they'd be going into, if that makes a difference? In a rosewood-necked PRS tuned to C, clarity is the biggest thing I'm looking for but these had me curious when you first mentioned them in the prototype pickup thread so now that they're actually out I'm really curious!


    You guys need to stop offering so many cool pickups, back in the day I used to buy PRS and immediately be thinking of what aftermarket set to grab for them... now I grab a PRS and either love the stock pickups or if I don't absolutely love them right off the bat, I think of what aftermarket PRS pickups I want to swap in there because in the past few years the pickup selection has been just fantastic! As I always say, more options = better.
