    I hope that someone can shed some light on this matter.. Can I change just the bridge pickup in my SC245 and not change the neck pickup? Let me explain why I am asking...I spoke to a PRS dealer regarding pickups, and the PRS guy at the store said you can't have a non PRS pickup mixed with another PRS pickup... I love the SC245 neck pickup but I want to try some different bridge pickup(s) Can someone clarify this, is it true? Will I have to change both pickups in the guitar?

    that makes no sense at all. the only "issue" with mixing passive pickups is figuring out polarity, which only affects the sound when both pickups are on, and determining which coils get switched on or off when coil-splitting, which the 245 doesn't even do.

    Thanks, I knew this would be the case. I just couldn't believe the information I was given...
