The roasted maple and mahogany combo does look quite complementary and has given me an idea for a mahogany backed body for an option for the neck... :icon_thumright:

Which pups are these for the soloist (or rather either soloist).
Coincidentally I'm building a prs soloist atm too (even more coincidentally my finish got damaged as well, with a very different outcome). I'm going to be running hfs / vb in that.
I have some squabbin 85/15MT in my Strat and Squabbin 59/09 in my actual prs.
Are you doing the standard treble bleed 180pf that you would find in a PRS or a doing your owners thing in the electrics?
P.s. Thanks for the tips on how to drill straight pickup ring holes.
Dr Excess said:Sounds great.
Well I did pretty much the same in my last build. Full PRS spec electrics, pots, resistors etc but put it all in a Strat. They were 85/15 too.
I also have a cu24.
You know what, the Strat sounds just like a prs. Everybody bangs on a out tone woods etc but honestly, 99% of what a guitar sounds like is pickups and electrics.
Tbh I prefer the 59/09 because I'm a mid feind and they are super middy, but the 85/15 still sound really great, especially split. I play then more than the 59/09.
I think so long as you're not using dragons or hollowbody pickups you're golden. They appear to be be regarded as the only duds.
What you adding resistance wise to the split? 2. 2k? That appears to be the PRS way for splitting in many of the SCs.
That will make them similar to my MT split. I play that single all the time. Sounds great to me. Legit single coil sound with the PRS flavour. You'll love it.
I've bought and sold so many PRS pickups I've lost count. You'll never lose money on them and tbh unless you're expecting something that doest sound like a PRS you'll love it.
These are amazing builds, can't wait to see them finished up. I get my fret levelling kit next week so my build will finish up then.
LOL what a weird coincidence that there will be not 1 but 3 warmoth soloists with PRS setups appearing at the same time.
