Thread: Which PRS pickup combination best works for you?

    Which PRS pickup combination best works for you?

    In continuation of my love for the DGT pickups, I'd love to try 57/08 Bass and DGT Treble pickups in a DGT configuration!

    Share you combination and impressions and PICS!

    This'll be fun!

    I'm boring, and almost always keep the stock pickups on my guitars (figuring I bought the guitar because I liked the tone).

    But always interested in what others are doing.
    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.

    The DGT pickups are great and I love my DGT just the way it is, but I am curious about the DGT bridge and 57/08 or 59/09 neck combos.

    Also I hear great things about a 59/09 bridge and 57/08 neck combo.

    And of course everyone loves the 57/08 pickups and the mighty 408 pickups, which I have personally experienced how great they are, thoroughly enjoyable (NGD thread coming).

    I love the old 5-way rotary on my 2008 Cu24. I like the HFS/VB combo but I replaced them with Dragon II pickups to get a little more vintage tone out of the guitar while retaining most of the gain. I am halfway considering putting the HFS/VB back in.

    Honestly, I haven't been really wow'd by the newer PRS pickups. The 57/08s sound great in the HBII, and I think that's the most positive single change to the entire PRS lineup since 2010. But in other guitars they leave me cold.

    I sure would like a covered HFS/VB. Seriously considering doing it myself, although I know it will change the tone of the pickups; hopefully not too much.

    I got a DGT bridge and a 5909 neck on my SCHB and couldn't be happier. Sweet combo
