Is the only difference the PA2 boost switch? Are the pickups themselves exactly the same?

It's a dB Volume boost you can activate with a switch on your guitar

nice!! so i assume if you boost it there, it will just give you some more gain on the pre amp right?, not really a volume booster?
i always wanted a power amp section volume db booster on the guitar, is that possible?

Afraid not with a switch on the guitar...
You can put an Equalizer or a dB boost pedal in the loop though!

I always needed this too biggrin.gif However, I believe a nice and strong mid-boost switch can help cut through, even if the overall loudness stays the same.

Here is a picture of my Ibanez RG4EXQM1 with the Kerry King 81/85's and the PA2 boost switch. You can see the switch near my volume knob.

Congrats on your killer guitar setup! I've got the Kerry King set stuffed in my Minarik Lotus and it really turned it in to a monster.
