    I would like to replace the black pickup rings on mye PRS with creme ones.

    I don't see any parts, aside from pups, in the PRS online store

    Could I just use standard humbucker pickup rings like Gibson parts?

    Yes, some of the Gibson ones will work, but I don't remember which ones.

    Chiba to the white courtesy phone! He knows...

    You can get them at Guitar Heaven.

    Is your guitar stoptail or trem? I have a set of cream rings from my Archtop that I'd be willing to send you.

    Speaking of my Archtop (whips out wallet with pictures before you can object):

    I swapped out the cream rings with black, and changed the knobs to ebony Tele-style.

    It' a CE24 so it has a trem

    I didn't even realize that would make a difference but I can see how now.

    Great looking HB, I would love to have one but would have to thin the heard first

    Remember to screw down the pup rings carefully - they split easily!

    Gibson's front rings will work. Their rear rings are too tall.
