    Hi All,
    I have a '97 PRS CU22 Semihollow and I'm looking for recommendations for aftermarket pickups. Right now it has the original Dragons, and the tone is very good, but I'm looking for pickups that will allow more of the semihollow tonality to come through.
    Thanks for any advice!

    I've always heard Duncan Seth Lovers or Gibson 57' Classics are nice in semi-hollows.

    As far as boutique pups, WCR, Wolftone, Lollar, Fralin, Holmes, Barenuckles, Sheptones, and a bunch of others I'm forgetting right now are always a good choice and worth looking into.

    Thanks, man. I think I'm going to look into the WCRs.

    Lollar Imperials would sound great in a CU 22 semihollow.

    I have Fralin humbuckers (the standard 8K/9K set) in my CU22 SemiHollow, and I'm very happy with them.
