    The best pickups/most versatile pickup on the market. I have them in at least of my guitars.

    You won't find a better pickup. Great for rock or metal. Good for anything g else.
    I put them in this custom build strat body with Koa top, mahogany body, Floyd Rose tremolo. This pickup will take an average guitar and make it great. I have been using them since 1990.

    I use it for two weeks to replace the bridge pickup of my Santana SE
    I love this standard in its saturation, which keeps sufficient precision in spite of a mountain type of gain Correct!
    I regret that Paul Reed Smith takes all users for penguins soldering iron, and to "facilitate and simplify" (as he says) installation, there have only three conductors instead of four, which limits significant positions splittage (farewell the two coils out of phase!)
    The ratio quality price is reasonable for the PRS!
    I do not regret that choice at all!
    I put eight because of the limitations of splittage!

    HFS = How freakin' sweet

    The PRS HFS bridge humbucker is found in many of their guitars as a stock pickup, and with great reason. It's a really great sounding pickup that works really well for coil splitting and also has a really nice old school quality that has a really "brown" effect when playing through a good spongy sounding amp. I'd say that its closest comparison would be a mix/match paring of the Gibson '57 Classic Plus mixed with a GOOD Seymour Duncan JB. It sounds great for a wide variety of styles and in a wide variety of (admittedly all PRS) guitars. I've tried it in various 22 and 24 fret PRS instruments all with great results.

    The PRS HFS bridge humbucker is found in many of their guitars as a stock pickup, and with great reason. It's a really great sounding pickup that works really well for coil splitting and also has a really nice old school quality that has a really "brown" effect when playing through a good spongy sounding amp. I'd say that its closest comparison would be a mix/match paring of the Gibson '57 Classic Plus mixed with a GOOD Seymour Duncan JB. It sounds great for a wide variety of styles and in a wide variety of (admittedly all PRS) guitars. I've tried it in various 22 and 24 fret PRS instruments all with great results. In the 22 fret guitars it looses a little bit of the high end sparkle and that is replaced by a meatier low end, great for rhythms and sustained leads. In the 24 fret PRS guitars, the pickup takes on another voice. The high end is more apparent and that wonderful '80s/'90s raunch really starts to come through. Everything from Silverchair to Van Halen to Racer X works with this pickup quite well.

    The clean tones remind me of a blend between the classic Les Paul PAF tone, and an overwound Strat single coil. Very pure and rich, but never sacrificing brightness or clarity. It also sounds especially good when split or wired in parallel as many PRS guitars are... very Tele esque! When hit with some overdrive, the character turns into the heaviest PAF I've ever heard, but still retaining that great woody tonal character that I so love about good resonant guitars... this pickup lets the wood's tone shine through despite having a fair bit of output.

    All in all I think the PRS HFS pickup is a great humbucker for many different applications It does both full and split coil tones well and works excellently in both clean and distorted settings in 22 and 24 fret guitars, both with and without tremolo. The general vibe of the pickup remains the same, but it does adapt itself to the guitar as well... a definite plus.

    This micro quipi PRS CE24 that I had for a short time, I must admit. feedback, if I had kept the PRS, I chang this microphone that did not branch far too rich and mdiums acute trs sound (too) modern and sanitized, almost "clinical" ... I never learn russi sound that suits me ... Perfect for modern music, or with large current saturation, mdiocre for blues or vintage stuff more (clean sound quite impersonal).
