    New to PRS. Mark Holcomb Sig help.

    Hey mate, I couldn't tell if you have the 6 string or the 7 string variant. I have the 7 string and changed out the tuners. You will need to take the tuner buttons (wings/pegs, whatever they're called) off each of the stock tuners and put them on the locking tuners. The 7 string tuner buttons...

    New Guitar Day - Artist w/Maple Neck

    I have another USA tremonti that I also really like. When on a clean channel and on the neck pickup, the low end can really be rich and at times, overpowering at volume (on my Dual Rectifier with the recto cab). This guitar will be tuned to C or C#. Maple provides a tighter low end, with clear &...

    From Studio to Launch Tour

    I'm an Aussie; spend a lot of time in Asia for work. I play in a Pinoy rock band while I am there. Recently, we recorded an album. The album was self-produced. It's available on Spotify and all other major streaming services. We're really happy and proud with the final product. Links at the...

    Have you ever bought the same guitar to get a better top?

    Not a better top, but a different top :) On the left, 2004 10 top Custom 24. I got that one first. On the right, a 2004 "Brazilian" limited edition Custom 24.

    Why is this SE 245 so expensive?

    Look, I was wondering if there was anything special about it. Sure, people have the right to be douchey - if there's nothing special about it, i feel sorry for the sucker.

    Why is this happening??

    I've had the same problem on the same string on the guitar in my avatar. Lost the screw and spring. Had to buy a new set of screws. I guess at least i have spares now..

    Veneer tops on SE guitars

    echoing the others here: it may be paper thin, but it's definitely maple. It's vacuumed onto a less figured maple cap.

    USA PRS Order Delivery Timeframes.

    I have a new Tremonti; Artist on the way. Figured maple neck, and fretboard. Hybrid hardware, adjustable stoptail bridge, fire red burst colour, artist 10 top. I ordered and paid for it just over 12 months ago, now. When I paid, the store supplier (i assume PRS) suggested a 10 month build...

    PRS SE Bass - 5 string?

    Hi there, I'm looking to try a PRS Bass, a Kestrel or a Kingfisher. However i want a 5 string. Searching around, it looks like they don't make a 5 string unless you get into private stock territory. Do they exist? I feel like that's a pretty big market segment they're missing out on if so...

    When you like an SE more than a core model

    the SE tremonti is pretty killer. I don't know if i like it more than my cores, but easily just as much

    Fretboard Woods

    I tend to agree. I have multiple Custom 24's and they all have their own tonal characteristics. However, I think there is more to it than just the woods. Taking the factory tour, I noticed that there is still very much, a huge amount of manual work that goes into the Core guitars. From...

    Setup Help - Possible neck or nut issues

    Thanks sergio & iceman. It's totally the nut. I just added a small piece of unwound string in the D groove. No more buzz. Tried to order a PRS nut from the PRS online store, but they only ship to USA. Wonder why they don't post internationally.. & ebay is between 2 and 5x more expensive. I...

    Setup Help - Possible neck or nut issues

    So a little while ago, I picked up a Core Tremonti really cheap. I knew that it wasn't well looked after like i look after my own, but I thought with a bit of TLC I could at least get it to play and sound great. The action was SUPER high. All the string saddles were on their highest settings...
