Hello, first time PRS owner and new forum member here . I finally spent the bucks and purchased a mint KL 1812 from my local Guitar Center for $1600 and, besides introducing myself, have a question or two for the experts every forum possesses. First, it is a lovely guitar that sounds great, but I'm wondering to what extent I can improve it as I modify every guitar and amp I buy - even if it's just cosmetically - to make it a tad different than stock. I have heard wonderful things about the 57/08 pickups, but don't know anything about how they would compare with the Mira p/u's this came with. This is also my first Korina guitar and I really like everything associated with it - weight, looks, acoustic tone, etc. Can I make this guitar sound even more <insert superlative here> by swapping p/u's? Do the 57/08s work well with Korina and its inherent clear, mid-range-y tone?
Also, if anyone knows, this guitar's serial number begins with 08, but I've read that PRS made only 100 KL 1812s in 2009. Do I have a different guitar?
