    Tremonti pickup swap

    Anyone replaced the pickups for the \m/ ??
    Have seen neck pickup swaps but not read anything about bridge pickup swaps.

    Thanks

    I havent replaced them, but I have sets of both. I like the \m/'s better and also like that they are 4 wire so they will work on any PRS control configuration. The metals for me are a little more articulate, like the characteristic you enjoy from a bareknuckle pickup when the notes still stand out clear through thick, gainy chords and the Tremontis are like your typical Duncan/DiMarzio hot bucker. The metals also split beautifully....

    Here are 2 videos of Brandon and Len playing my CU24 after the install......

    BONUS FACT - this is an Archon prototype they are using and you all heard it about a year before the amps release! :P
