    Silver Sky SE bridge questions

    Yep decked from the factor. You can float it if you want to though. I am not thrilled with the saddles, but it holds tune really well.

    Color of PRS Silver Sky SE (Stone Blue)

    The blue is not bright, it‘s a grey blue. I like it.

    Silver Sky SE inbound

    Your gonna like it. It’s the best version of a Strat.

    I would love a stoptail cu24.

    Silver Sky SE inbound

    The axe is here and it’s pretty great. I tweaked the neck to almost flat, the action was pretty spot on from the factory. The trem is oversprung right now. Did you guys adjust to floating?

    Silver Sky SE inbound

    Kinda stoked. Should show up at GC on Wednesday. I’m trying to find the right strap for a stone blue SS. Anyone have any ideas?

    Still waiting for mine from GC, it’s been not quite three months. They told me end of May, but I was hoping they’d surprise me.

    Just picked up a PolyTone Mini Brute

    As a side note, the reverb circuit is on the circuit board, it just needs to be populated. That would require finding some parts and/or equivalents. I’d also need to mount a pot on the panel, which might be too much alteration.

    Just picked up a PolyTone Mini Brute

    It’s amazing what $10 of knobs will do.

    Just picked up a PolyTone Mini Brute

    So I went to work on the Polytone. These amp have always been workhorse amps, ver utilitarian. Prized for their clean tone and headroom. Yes there are better options, Henricksens for example, which are pretty expensive. I thought Polytones deserve some love and should look a little more...

    Over spend on an SE? Lol, check out mine!!

    Ok my SE CU24 has Mann locking tuners and trem, USA pots and nut, switch craft switch, Bare Kuckles Stormy Mondays, and mahogany back covers. If I had paid retail for the pickups I think we’d be close.

    Locking tuners for SE Silver Sky?

    If I had the money I’d do phase threes, but I don’t so I bought a set of ratios with the adapter plates. I have an aversion to vintage tuners, I honestly think they look cheap on instruments as nice as PRS.

    PRS SE Pauls Guitar replacement tuners?

    I just got some ratio tuners for the incoming (who knows when) Silver Sky SE. I really dislike vintage tuner.

    Nitro tone is so much better than poly tone

    The guy who built the “air guitar“ on YouTube begs to differ. That might be the most scientific approach to figuring out where “tone” comes from I’ve ever seen. Believe me I know about experiments and controls. It wasn’t perfect, but I watched it and as a scientist I was impressed.
