Custom 24 5 Way Switch in a 2013 Custom 24 SE
Hi Everyone, I want to change the stock 3 way blade switch on my 2013 SE Custom 24 to the 5 way blade switch used on the USA Custom 24. I want the stock switch options available on the current USA model;
Position 1: Bridge humbucker
Position 2: Bridge humbucker with neck singlecoil
Position 3: Bridge and neck humbuckers
Position 4: Neck singlecoil with bridge singlecoil
Position 5: Neck humbucker
The 5 way switch available on the PRS web store is partially prewired. Will the SE pickups work with this switch and get me the 5 options? Does anyone know if the wire color codes on the pickups are different? I plan to replace the push pull tone pot with a standard one.
Thanks for the help!
yes, the se pickups are not wired the same as the core pickups. The se are 4 conductor and the core are 3 as well as the neck pickup magnet being flipped for the ones using the 5-way rotary/blade. to do the the mod and get the pickup selections you will need core pickups designed for a 5-way blade/rotary. I did this mod and it was awesome, got a pair of pickups of ebay. (hfs and 59/09 bass).
I like surprises!!!
That's what I suspected. Thank you so much for the information!
