Kit cant fit in to cavities of PRS

(Customer's Reviews)

Even though the kit was good, the size of components including the 5 way switch cant fit the cavities of my PRS. Quite a disappointment. The kit is wasted now.


Great kit

(Customer's Reviews)

It lived up to my expectations the pots and the pickup selector is great quality products. However, I would have wanted the pickup switch brass colored such as washers and nuts for the pots. If you follow the wiring diagram and take your time, the soldering will go well. But as previous reviewers have mentioned the tone post needs to be grounded to.


Nice Kit

(Customer's Reviews)

I've bought 6 of these kits and for the money they're hard to beat. I used these kits to retrofit PRS SE's up to the normal PRS standards. These kits work fine on the PRS SE Custom 24's & 22's, but you will have to take a utility knife or small router to shave a little of the cavity back to accomodate the rotary switch. Other then that, everything else works fine. Using this kit with tonerider pickups will give a good selection of sounds, even an electric acoustic sound. The standard speed knobs sold by Stewmac fit all the pots fine.
