    So I am enjoying the PRS experience very much. After watching the TedTalk with the Man Himself, I am curious about nut upgrades. I remember some guitars with a brass nut. Ergo, what would the dimensions for a PRS SE Holcomb brass nut be and does anyone have the same experience with swapping out the nut for a different material? if so what did you choose? Why?

    thanks!

    Your thinking too much. Just get the core nut and call it a day.

    Is the core nut a direct replacement or do you need to sand/file to fit?

    https://us.prsaccessories.com/ Should be a direct replacement. Here is the link to prs parts. Just call them and tell them what type of guitar you have, and they will be able to get you the correct nut you need.

    I threw a tusq nut on mine
    Also got black locking tuners, black hipshot knobs, and a black bridge finally put on. I'm freaking in love with it.

    I have the black hipshot with the open back tuner on my paul allender. It looks sooooo good.
