It doesn't work, mate. It creeps back into your wallet ! Then you're so glad to see it again, you feel you should give it an outing.
Incidentally, I think I've seen a three pickup Vela with two single coils and a humbucker, but I might be dreaming.

Regards, John

You may be thinking of the S2 Studio

I have the Core Studio 22 which is very versatile (and quite easy on the eye).

That's a lovely thing indeed, all humbuckers? Can you coil tap all 3 for just the bridge?

2 narrow field humbuckers in middle and neck, 57/08 in the bridge. Only the bridge can be coil tapped. Mine is the same colour as the one in the photo (black gold top 10 finish).

Thanks, Music Wolf,
It must have been the S2 Studio 22 I was thinking of. Those look to me like the D type single coils in the neck and middle positions.

Son has come back with more information. He can get a straight exchange it seems for the Rikky 330 and a PRS Sera but he is not keen on its Bigbsy trem. The shop has a Mira but that will be money as well as the 330.

Now I KNOW it is a "bit of string" but any ideas on the value of a 330 in good condition?

Dave.

It's an '85 330 serial YF1129 (from an old thread).

Ugh, I knew I shouldn't have read this. I've been looking at the Starla for years...now I've suddenly got GAS again.

*edit*

fwiw, I have a USA pro strat with SD "surfer" antiquity pups. It doesn't sound anything like any PRS I've ever played...

That is some serious skills Wonks, nice one :-)

Looking at Reverb anything from £1100 - £1800 so it might be worth getting it appraised professionally if you have a vintage place nearby?
