I know they have an amazing clean tone and a great lead. How would they hold up under lits of distortion (like metallica levels but not over the top pantera)?

I want one so bad. My dream guitar.

The pickups in the Custom 24 are pretty hot. Can easily handle distortion, i play some pretty heavy stuff and they sound amazing.

+1, me too. But the SE's aren't bad you know. Obviously nothing in comparison to the standard models, but like not at all bad for their price range.

Nothing compliments a Gibson Les Paul Custom quite like a Fender Frontman 15R

How do they compare to a JB?

Alter bridge have done some heavier rock stuff with PRS guitars (white knuckles and come to life off the top of my head). My SC245 handles it well, but I'd recommend the SC250 or a custom 24 (maybe with a pickup swap) for metal.

Haven't played a JB so can't really say.

I personally wouldn't reccomend it, i really think you could get any tone you want with the stock ones, providing you have an approprate amp. But yea as far as i know the guys from Opeth use a Jazz/JB combo in their PRS', well they did for a while at least and they have an amazing tone.

Haha Opeth is the band that made me want a PRS! If they use them on their more....brutal stuff then they can def handle it.

the 513 is the best prs around in my opinion
sweet cleans
screaming leads
the greatest amount of tonal variety in any one guitar on market
its like a strat/tele and a paul mixed beautifully
and it never ceases to be musical, never harsh or muddy.
beautiful guitar.

Most of them have Mahogany bodies so they're gonna be heavy


I played a single cut the other week and didn't find it to be that heavy at all, quite comfortable to stand up with. Didn't like much else about it but it wasn't heavy.

They're weight relieved for the most part.

The more a guitar weighs the better it sounds, unless you're looking for resonance.

i got a custom 22 last thursday and i feel like the luckiest guy in the world lol. its really, really great.

only thing is that its high gain tones on the bridge pickup sound more suited to shred than teh br00talz. it has great clarity but not much balls. the 24 is better for metal but i prefer the 22 for shred (alnico pickups)

For the guys who said Opeth used them, they used Seymour Duncan Full Shreds so take that in consideration..

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

The stock pickups in just about any of the upper-range PRS models will handle anything you want them to. Just don't go for the ones that are expressly lower-output.
