I was just curious to see if anyone has tried this combo. My next guitar is most likely going to be a PRS SE Custom 24, or I'm going to make my own with a PRS style.

BUT, I was playing my uncle's custom built guitar, and he has the D Sonic and Air Norton in that, and it sounds amazing. It has a perfect sound for my band's style.

So I was curious if anyone thought putting Dimarzio's in a PRS would be a good idea. Or would I taint the beauty and awesomeness that is PRS? (If I get the PRS I am not going to go replace the pick ups right away either, I'll definitely leave it alone for a while and see how much I like the stock pick ups.)

I'd say that its a pretty good idea. I'm not a fan of the stock SE pickups myself.

I feel like going from PRS to Dimarzio would definitely be a downgrade. Maybe not so much with the SE though since I don't know the quality of their pups. See what you think of the stock pups first. PRS tends to make amazing pickups. But maybe not for their SE line. If you like the Dimarzios, go for em.

I don't like the sound of the pups in my PRS, but I can't find anything better than them except vintage PAFs.

I thought the stock SE pick ups were good. I prefer Dimarzios and Duncans personally, but they weren't bad.

And to William: I got yelled at before for suggesting a pick up chnage to a les paul.

I thought about that. But it's a cheaper model, so I am assuming the pick ups won't be as great. But even PRS' cheaper lines and models are great guitars. But we'll see.

who the hell yelled at you and why?

just because you change the pickups doesnt make it less of a les paul...

you made it suit YOU better rather than everyone else,its your guitar and you should do what you want to it.

thanks lol

I'm just tired of kids arguing over stupid things like that and given absolutely no good advice...

It's YOUR tone,not theirs...

every single guitar player has their own unique sound and sometimes they have to do mods to their guitar/amp/pedals to get that sound they have been looking for

and by all means,if you need to change the pickups in a guitar you like to get the tone you really want then do it...ignore what everyone else thinks because in the end,your then one who is happy with your tone.
