Ive got a Duncan Custom 5 here that i just put into my PRS SE. Its the third time ive installed a Custom 5 in a guitar (all different guitars) and each time ive not liked it (dont know why i keep trying it). I find its lacking something. So im going to mag swap and turn it into either a custom or a custom custom.
So from what i can tell a Alnico 2 will make it a custom custom, and a ceramic will make it a custom. Im also going to try an Alnico 8 as that seems to be a popular choice on the SD forum.
But would anyone know what length magnet i should get (2.444 or 2.50 inches)? and should it be a polished magnet? I'm buying from Addiction-FX on ebay and have asked him, but thought id ask elsewhere to.
And is there anything else i should be aware of, or other magnets i should try?
