I have a question for all you PRS SE Custom owners. Do the pickups in the SE Custom come with 4 conductor cable? Would I be able to coiltap them?

I don't have one, but I'd guess they only have 2-conductor wire. Not sure though, but if they had 4 conductor, they would fit a tap, wouldn't they?

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

^ aye, I know, but they still have to be 4 conductor to be splittable. But if he means spilt, then yeah, you can get around it. I think pink queen made a thread about splitting 2 conductor pickups into 4 conductor. Do a search on it...

I'm in the process of owning an SE Custom, there really isnt a reason why they would be 4 conductor, but most PRS pickups are, so you might get lucky and they happen to be. I would go ahead and get new pickups anyways.

Actually, a lot of PRS pickups are 3 conductor. They combine coil splitting into one wire, such as on the HFS or Vintage Bass. The McCarty has 2 conductors and wiretaps (don't ask me how...). So the best way to find out if the SE has 4 conductor is to have them pop off the back cover for you.

. I think i'm going to get some new pickups anyway. What would be some nice pickups that would go with this guitar? To go with a hard-rockish(read Danko Jones, Foo FIghters, Jane;s addiction ed) player like myself? Had some really good experience with some dimarzio's in my tele.. Some tips on this?

Get some real PRS pickups. HFS or Tremonti pickups would do well for you, or Dragon II's if you want lower output.

PRS pickups are not bad, but there are many models that are totally not worth the price since Duncans and Dimarzios are a good $25-30 cheaper.

Dragon II neck and Dragon I bridge are a great combo though.

As far as PRS goes, the McCartys and the Dragons are the most versatile. Dragons if you want more crunch and distortions than cleans, McCartys if you want reasonable distortion and lush cleans. The HFS/Vintage Bass combo is high output and plays hard rock very well. The Tremontis are the highest output pickups PRS makes, and of course are good for heavy rock/shred/metal.
