    High E string keeps breaking on PRS SE SILVER SKY

    8th fret is an odd spot for a string to break hmmm , I would try a bit of 000 steal wool or 3000 grit clear coat sand paper on the frets around that area. I also agree possible bad batch of strings

    Hollow, semi-hollow, solid body preferences

    For me it just depends on what my ears are hearing , hollow , semi hollows have a softer rounder edge to notes and less thump to the low end. Very pleasing when jamming alone or when you are looking to be big in a mix ( for me ) I like the lighter weight ( except the 335 which weighs a ton )...

    HDRX-20 Could use some BIAS advice and thoughts on this.

    All the PRS amps I have for worked on seem to be right at or near 30ma bias ( MT15 , H ) I have run EL34s in the MT15 and have EL34s in my H With an amp that new I would 110% contact PRS they have been very open to recommending Bias and tube types and values

    PRS Fret wear - Bad technique or setup?

    Nothing to bad going on there IMHO that's not even close to a recrown , heavy strings and playing will scuff the frets you will have many years before anything more than a polish might be needed to my eye. my 2002 CU24 has some fret divots you can see them and a recrown would easily fix it but...

    Has anyone played both the limited run SSH (58/15MTs) and the newer core SSH (58/15LTs)?

    The LTs for some reason were not a fit for me , the Mts are perfect I often just leave them tapped and go to position 2 or 4 ( add the narrow field ) when I want more :)

    Intermittent hum with new HDRX 20.

    well you checked seating and microphonic tubes, sounds like a grounding issue on that switch you mentioned, seems like your handy it might be worth pulling it out of the cab and looking at that switch for loose grounding wires. I would contact the dealer you got it from they will likely just...

    New/Set Up

    Sometimes a guitar is a Goldylock guitar and its JUST RIGHT and for me PRS hits that make way more often than most. BUT every guitar has gotten better after I give it a once over setup with my strings , action , fretboard condition etc just some love after its long journey to my house.

    New Video with Paul

    Enjoyed the video was very interesting where he talked about trying to get a bone nut to work in a Trem guitars , plays to the feeling I got changing the Fiore nut from bone ( stock ) the a traditional PRS nut. To be honest I would love to get an honest answer about changing to more vintage non...

    If your 24 fret guitar is lacking sustain past the 12 fret it is most often a set up issue , a small truss rod adjustment or action adjustment can have a big effect on sustain , 1) check strings , gauge etc - Old strings or even the strings on a new guitar can be dull or dead sounding , does...

    Let's talk treble bleeds... (DGT)

    I seem to remember an interview where DG said he runs the tone down also , funny I find my DGT to be on the warm side tone wise , it came to me with Mira pickups with covers that were brighter and sounded really good in my DGT. I have grown to enjoy the DGT pickups over time.
