    Locking tuners for SE

    Thx. Will try the nut and new strings first. Right now, doesn’t hold tune for three songs.

    Locking tuners for SE

    Got my new SE Custom 24 recently. I really like it but expected it to stay in tune better based on reviews. I’ve got maybe 20 hours on it. So I guess I’ll get the the locking tuners when I have it set up. Also thinking about 9.5 strings to replace the 9s. Recommend the PRS tuners vs other brand...

    Is SE 24 playing position (fret hand) more away from your body than a 22 fret model?

    Wow. Really appreciate all the input. I really wanted the look to hit me. And I wanted it in stock from my fav online shop. Next, I didn’t want something like 9.5 pounds. I actually played a 22 semihollow and love it. But not the colors. I got to see the transparent blue locally but it wasn’t as...

    Is SE 24 playing position (fret hand) more away from your body than a 22 fret model?

    Whoops. Someone bought the one I wanted before I hit the button. So I’m very limited if my criteria is wide/thin neck, 22 frets and finding a color I want. I love the look of the SE custom 24 Black/gold burst but still not sure whether a 24 would feel as long necked as my SG. Sounds like some...

    Silver Sky SE

    I handled one yesterday but didn’t plug in. It was the most comfortable of the SE’s I tried. Going for a different model though as limited colors that just weren’t what I was looking for.

    Is SE 24 playing position (fret hand) more away from your body than a 22 fret model?

    I never stand so usually rest the guitar on my thigh in the cutaway. So the key measurement is how far from the center of the bottom cutaway to the nut. But hey, nobody measure that. Now have to decide on the 24 or my original pick, a Mark Tremonti charcoal burst. It’s 22 frets, but weighs 8.5...

    Is SE 24 playing position (fret hand) more away from your body than a 22 fret model?

    I’ve been looking at my first PRS to add to my Epi/Gibson/Gretsch guitars. Doing research, I‘m after a distinctive look, easy playability, wide/thin neck. So I’m close to pulling the trigger on an SE 24-08 in translucent blue. I have a bit of arthritis and on most guitars my hand doesn’t stretch...
