    PRS CE Models 00's 10's 20's Comparisons?

    I love my 96! Although I cant leave anything alone, so it has a 59/09 bridge, Duncan Alnico II Pro neck, a 6-way toggle switch, new knobs and wiring, along with a Mann 1 piece bridge. Once upon a time this was a purple guitar, I got it about 15 years ago and have kept it cased when not playing...

    Graph Tech Ghost install without permanent holes?

    I did not end up doing the install. However i did speak to John Mann and he said he could precisely modify the bridge for this purpose if I mailed it to him. If you do it, please share your methods and results!

    Were your parents into rock music?

    My Parents were born in the early 50's. It was mostly me who had to learn to like rock haha. I was a little kid being brought to see all the local classic rock bands in crappy bars. They were big fans of Bruce Springsteen (being from NJ) the Eagles, the Doors, Lynyrd Skynyrd, not a fan of most...

    PRS Wiring Mods Resource Thread

    I just got around to installing a freeway switch in my CE24 with a Duncan neck and PRS bridge pickup. I really like having the options on the switch instead of the push/pull. The 3x3 03 switch is pretty solid feeling as well. I wound up using some excess wire to solder 1.5-2 inch leads coming...

    Neck heavy solution?

    If its an issue while standing, you could add weight to the back/bottom side of the guitar strap. You dont have to modify the guitar at all.

    Last Minute Advice Needed CE24 Semi Or...?

    Hmm, going to be tough to get the 594 neck sound on a 24 fret guitar since the neck pickup is in a different spot. Have you checked out the older swamp ash specials? 22 fret, bolt on maple neck, H/S/H setup.

    Trouble desoldering an SE

    I did my first pickup swaps with a cheap 30 watt iron from radio shack. I found that the key when working on some of the factory solder joints is to oddly enough add solder to the joint first if tinning the tip isn't enough. I found it transfers the heat well and will get the old stuff melted. I...

    Graph Tech Ghost install without permanent holes?

    I emailed Graph Tech, and they say its entirely doable to not drill out the bridge. I imagine it may look a bit odd, having the wires visible for that run from the bridge to the pickup, but I guess we'll see.

    Graph Tech Ghost install without permanent holes?

    I am thinking of installing ghost Piezo saddles on my 90's CE 24 with a Mann bridge. I really don't want to drill through the bridge and I'm wondering if I can either run the wires over the front of the vibrato and into the cavity, or slot the underside of the bridge pickup ring and run the...

    Looking for pickup Suggestions for a 594

    my current thinking is that lower output pickups tend to have more clarity and character and they can be boosted for more output, for that tighter higher gain stuff. This isn't based on tons of pickup swaps over many guitars, so take it with a grain of salt! I went from HFS to JB to Tremonti to...

    Help-Tremonti 10 Top (Faded Whale Blue)-What Would You Do?

    I could see trying to haggle if you ordered it, but you bought it in person. You could see/feel any flaws. I think the guitar looks pretty sweet! but there's a pretty good return policy if you don't care for it anymore!

    Tremonti interview - Talks about the MT100

    “So it’s going to be a three-channel amp and each of the three channels are going to be completely separate from one another. There’s not going to be anything that goes in-between them. It’s going to be awesome and I’m just waiting until it’s 100%. We’re three quarters of the way there." “The...

    Ce24 replacement pickups

    I will also add, I was not too impressed with the Tremonti Bass, although I only tried it in my Tremonti SE. It can not be coil split, and sounded fairly plain.
