    Very cool guitar. I've never been a fan of strat style guitars with 3 humbuckers but those pickups look perfect.

    I bet when your 626 is 25 years old, it will still look killer, as opposed to this 626 which looks horribly dated:

    I remembered reading your first post saying you'd demo it. Scrolling the forums on my iPhone while watching TV with the woman and cats bit me.

    I really dig this idea, I was considering maybe the full sized 408 bridge with 2 of the smaller ones in the neck and middle. So, is the middle pickup a bass or treble 408?

    All good dude, I haven't even played it yet but will do a demo next week hopefully. The pressure is on now!

    Like this?

    http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthre...-STUDIO-ORCHID!

    That has a bass in the middle (as per the cert from Brian's site). In my excitement I didn't even specify treble or bass for the middle, but I assume they put in a bass. I did spec the regular 408s and not the Brent Mason ones though. I remember an interview with PRSh where he says Brent didn't want this particular part which made the 408s a little bit "sweeter". I went for sweeter, and different from the BM Sig. Can't wait to play the darn thing, the suspense is killing me!

    Congrats on a stunner! This has been most delightful! The Lamaze paid off! Would love to hear the neck and bridge combo.

    Well since getting home yesterday I've had limited chances to play her (in between odd jobs and baby sleeps). Firstly, she's not quite The 626, she's the 626 minus 2, so "The 624". PTC put a 3-way instead of a 5-way in there, which initially confused the hell out of me but then I worked out the 3-way is configured like a normal 3-way, but the push-pull activates the middle pickup. It's actually a fair bit simpler than what I had in my head and the only difference is there's no middle only sounds, which is fine by me since I never use those tones. I did give the PTC a fair bit of freedom (e.g. layout and how to achieve the switching options) so I'm glad they went this way. Anyway now she's not named after a dodgy mid-90s Mazda...

    Secondly, she's a total success. Hands down the best sounding and feeling guitar I have ever played. It's quite difficult to qualify or quantify this due to the limited time, and me constantly changing from single coil to HB, clean to dirty, then experimenting with high gain. The attack is nothing like I've played before, extremely responsive and almost helps your picking to be precise (I know that sounds odd!). Maybe this is the setup too, everything is just so effortless!

    She does everything I thought she would and more, I didn't expect to be spending so much time on bridge HB mode with high gain (for me) because she handles it so well. Another unexpected thing is how much I dig all 3 pickups active. Its like this weird fat quack that's rounder and more percussive than I thought it would be.

    I'll take some more photos and upload them at some stage, and I'll also record some audio so hopefully you can hear whats going on with this baby. I don't have the internet at home (by choice) so it will be a few days until I can get them on the interwebs. Until then I'll be busy exploring because well, there's so much to explore!

    Super stoked right about now!
