    I think I'm done with my mods now for the Åkesson sig. Installed a set of Schaller M6 locking tuners couple of days ago to finish the build. Might redo the headstock decal later on... Mods include TusqXL nut, Schaller M6 locking tuners, Schaller 455 bridge, Bare Knuckle Pickups Cold Sweat set...

    I bet one of these would cover the holes... http://www.kieselguitars.com/products/JP1C https://www.allparts.com/AP-0609-000-Jackplate-for-Danelectro-Guitars_p_347.html Received some cheap Chinese transparent speed knobs in the mail today. Maybe... maybe not.

    Thought of that as well. Will look in to it... :) I'd rather put the money into locking tuners (which ain't a necessity either) than wooden pickups but that's just my opinion. They look very good though I can agree on that.

    Probably yeah... but then there's maple, rosewood, bubinga, ebony, etc to choose from :D and those are pretty hefty priced for what they are. At least I haven't found any under 60eur shipped to Finland. I think I'll stick with black or creme unless I find those wooden rings decently priced.

    New pickups (BKP Cold Sweat) for my Åkesson... still undecided with the pickup ring color. And a shoddy clip with the previous set (Tonerider Generator) and these new BKPs. Links to recordings without bass is in the description of the video

    New pickups and mounting rings for my SE Åkesson. The pickups are awesome and definitely worth a try! Had a EM G57/66 set installed before but those were a bit too bright for me so I changed them to another guitar. These retain plenty of crunch and harmonic content and yet still retains clarity...

    Cheers! Yup it's great amp and still keeps up with the latest modeling amps IMO.

    Random shots of my this evenings date. PRS SE Åkesson with 'a few' mods. Never been much of a EMG fan but the 57/66 set is awesome!

    I bought the guitar 2nd hand and it had the non-adjustable tailpiece. I guess the previous owner didn't like the TonePros for some reason but kept the locking studs. And you're right the 455has 14" radius, sorry my bad. But after the filing I have now around 1.2mm action at 12th on high e side...

    New Schaller 455 bridge for my Åkesson. Had to file the saddles a bit to get lower action and proper radius. These bridges are 12" radius IIRC and the fretboards is 10".

    I put pickup covers on my SE (pics included)

    Looks classy! Personally I just used some electric tape, 'poster putty' and then applied the covers and solder. The wax ain't necessary. Jim Wagner does his boutique pickups this way as well. http://www.ryansguitars.com/2010/01/stopping-microphonic-squeals-and.html

    I switched them around like on Gibson LPs for instance but the bridge volume would be the one closer to the bridge. It used to be like V-V top and T-T under them.

    Cheers! I lightly rubbed some black stain on the couple of 'oversanded' spots. Looks better now. Other stuff I've done to her I installed a Tusq XL nut, raw nickel covers on the original pickups (SE245), Schaller strap locks and I switched the control layout around.

    Greets from Finland, here's my PRS SE Fredrik Åkesson. Probably going to get some hating but I sanded off the 'SE Fredrik Åkesson' text off the headstock :o. Not going to scam anyone, I just think it looks classier. This one is a keeper for sure! I'll probably dye the headstock but looks better...
