Earlier today my PRS Studio finally got here from Ontario. Took a LONG time. I was very pleased when I got the case opened. Looked even better than the pics I'd seen. This is my first PRS with a trem. Still not sure about it since I'm not much of a trem guy. I will very likely get a Tremel-No to lock it into place. I have a tremor in both hands and it tends to cause issues with any trem when I'm playing since I have to rest my hand on the stoptail or trem to help control the tremor. Loving the pickups so far. Each option is quite unique so you can dial in a LOT of sounds. All (3) pickups are the 57/08, but as you can tell the Neck and Middle pickups are Narrowfield. Try to imagine if you could combine the best sounds from a humbucker, single coil and a P90 and put it all together. That's the best way to describe the sound. As for the treble pickup it's a standard 57/08, but if you pull up the tone knob you can switch it to single coil. The 5-position switch gives you a bit of a Strat layout, but by my ears it still leans closer to either a P90 or humbucker sound. Still playing with my amp to get all that I can out of it. I may have to raise the full-size pickup as its sound output is a bit less than the narrowfields. Time will tell. The volume control works amazingly well at going from totally clean to a ton of overdrive (assuming you have some overdrive going via your amp or a pedal) along with being extremely touch sensitive. More so than most guitars I've played. Gives you a ton of choices without having to take your hands off the guitar. As always with PRS, the build quality is top notch. Loving the new birds WAY more than I had anticipated. You have to see them in person to know them. The neck is the new Pattern style, which is very similar to their old Wide/Fat variety and identical to the neck on my JA-15 so I feel right at home there. I will try to follow-up with more on the pickups, maybe a video or two, early next week. And now for the show!

Holy shit, that thing is beautiful. I normally prefer quilted maple over flamed, but damn that finish is amazing.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
