    ‘88 Custom 24 Tone/Switching Control Options

    My '88 Custom is very bright also. The first thing I did was remove the bright cap across the volume input and wiper. Then roll the Volume back to take the shrillness out. That's all it needed. Would really like a tone control but not at changing a vintage hand carved PRS! Don't use the...

    Pedals or no Pedals

    Just curious.... I was playing a gig a long time ago and this person walked by the stage and said "there's all the magic pedals".... shortly after that I became a minimalist using at most one pedal and letting a good tube amp do all the work. Now,,,,, I miss some of the cool stuff. You all...

    S2 knob loose after replacing pot - how to fix?

    The boys and girls at PRS actually pry the pot shaft open slightly, Never understood why PRS knobs have a slightly larger opening. If you purchase a replacement pot from PRS it will come that way also.

    DGT String Gage 11's

    Going with a wood library brazzi board DGT today, hopefully.... 11's seem intimidating so will go with standard 10's and back off the spring tension a bit.

    S2 CU 24 Hardcase?

    I have an S2 Thinline so obviously thinner.... duh... but found if I use a brand new factory sealed box case, it conforms to the guitar perfect, even the neck rest. But if I put the same guitar in my other PRS cases (used) the neck rides above the neck rest which I don't like.

    DGT String Gage 11's

    Thinking of unloading on a DGT via internet sales..... What can I expect in feel when it comes to 11's with wide frets? All my other PRS's have 10-46.

    S2 Custom 24 Hard Case

    Same issue with juniors and specials in the lifton cases. Put a hand towel under the lower end of the body and the S2 will fit in the multi-fit case great.
