    First PRS and loving it.

    Hey guys, Ive been reading these forums with great interest over the last few months with the view to buying a PRS and thought I better join up after taking the plunge.
    Ive bought a beautiful 2002 CU22 which just plays like a dream. Only thing Im not sold on is the pickups. The dragon II's just seem wrong for this guitar, the treble pickup has this nasal top end that Im just not a fan of, so out they come.

    Im replacing them with these.........................






    I wound these myself and assembled them in covers I also modded. Ill stop short of engraving a model name on them, lol.
    Ill get some pics of the guitar up shortly.

    Sweet!
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.
    Im sure this wont be my last PRS. Im amazed i havent owned one before, now thet ive got one in the collection.
    The pickups have been wound with an extra 1500 or so turns on the screw coils so when they are split the single coil is a real single coil output, kind of like what prs do.

    Ill get pics up soon.

    Very cool, but...where the heck is the guitar?!?!?

    Welcome!
    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.

    Congrats, my '03 CU22 was my first PRS and, probably had more time playing out than any of my other guitars.
    I happen to love how mine sounds with Dragon II's, I guess we all have different taste.
