    Incoming NGD Hollow be thy name

    Yep, the CE has the same setup as the hollowbody. Before that I had a CE22 with a Graphtech Floyd Rose and an Edwards Les Paul with a GraphTech tuneomatic. Before the corona, I was just starting to put a group together with my old bassist from a Rush tribute band. Maybe next year we'll get it...

    Incoming NGD Hollow be thy name

    Glad you like it!! (yeah I was the seller) It is a really nice guitar but yeah, I think the live playing is done for a while. The CE24 in my avatar also has a piezo so I really didn't need two. I also run the piezo through acoustic IR's (with a Helix instead) .

    Se eg players ???

    I had one and loved it. It had EMG SA pickups and sounded great. I'd love to get another some day.

    PRS CE body width?

    12 7/8" at the widest point. I measured my 95 CE24 and my 96 CE22. No idea on the new CE24's but they 'should' be the same.

    Show Us Your CEs!

    My favorite CE is my 95 CE24. It has a Graph Tech piezo, Dragon 1 bridge pup, McCarty neck pup, and Planet Waves locking tuners. It's got some nice natural relicing going on and plays & sounds like a million bucks. It's the one guitar I have thatI know I will never, ever sell. My other is a 96...

    SE Mods

    I've done that (on a few SE's) and yes, the jackplate does not cover the holes from the football shape plate. Here's a pic of my old Bernie SE:

    Tuning problems PRS CE24

    John Ingram told me the same thing, particularly with the winged locking tuners. Tuning down to pitch cured the problem on a CE24 I used to have. Also, having the bridge blocked for down only can also hurt tuning stability. I've found floating PRS trems to be much more stable. Check that the...

    Is a tuner change absolutely necessary on SE models

    The stock tuners are fine. In fact just about all stock tuners are fine. Tuners have a worm gear on the tuner button and a pinion gear on the post. The pinion gear cannot turn the worm gear. Any "slippage" is almost always in the string wrap on the posts. If there is any slop in the gears...

    Uhh... Is The CE Back For 2016?

    Moving Pictures was in 1981. That album was done with a few Strats, an ES 345, and an ES 355 Alex played CE24s and started using them about the time of the Roll the Bones album.

    I, for one, welcome our new CE overlords.

    SC245 tuner options

    I put Gotoh locking vintage tuners on my Singlecut. It took all of 5 minutes to swap them. They replaced the originals exactly and I can swap back if I ever need to (I don't know why I would though).

    Me too. Dimarzio Clip Lock straps are the first thing that goes on whenever I get a guitar. Been using them since the 80's and never, ever had an issue with them. I have had Dunlops and Schallers fail.

    Pawn shop CE22

    Won't work. A PRS neck is the only option. They do turn up on Ebay once in a while but are usually pricey ($400-$500). For the price of the guitar & neck, you could grab a nice, intact, CE22 or CE24.

    Dragon 1s vs \m/ pickups

    You, my friend, have a bad pickup or a wiring problem. Dragon 1's sound pretty much opposite of how you just described them. I have D1's in a CE24 and a CE22 (used to have a Singlecut with them also) and they are not remotely 'Stratty" or thin.

    Keep looking, you'll find one. I paid an obscenely low price for this one. The deals are out there but you gotta hunt them down.
