    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Even for third of that price, sorry man that's not a guitar you can work with. I still can't believe they ship the guitar like that.

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Like I wrote before in this thread - I compared it to other guitar even to an 8 string and a thick string doesn't have to have this chocked sound, its not okay. if you are okay with it its your compromise to make. I'm even more annoyed by the sharp contrast of the Holcomb SVN because except from...

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Sending it back is a gamble, since its clearly an issue with all Holcomb SVN guitars with no official comment on that subject (even Mark himself disappeared), anyway let us know what did you eventually do.

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    To give an update : Alan has the same issue that I have, something is wrong with the low B-string, still unknown if this issue can be eliminated, for me it bothered me so much that I returned the guitar (unless PRS Europe are going to fix it somehow). PRS USA is not answering my emails. I...

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Alan, Thanks again for commenting, (PRS should endorse you for defending them) so far everyone has the best intentions to help so that goes in a good way and appreciated by me. I understand you have the guitar now ? Can i ask you to record the (LOW) B-string specially in the 12-fret, unplugged...

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Dear all, I am just back from the local PRS dealer. There was another new Holcomb SVN there, it had the same issue. The guy from the store says that setup might reduce it but probably not eliminate it, and that for this price range € 1150, I should adjust my expectations, that the low b string...

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Thanks for the tips, to give an update - The guitar is going to the shop and then to PRS europe, they committed for a refund, fix or a new guitar. Ill keep an update. As for the .64 string I replaced it once, the thickness is right. FYI ,The saddle does not naturally fit the .64, it is to thick...

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Hi Alan, I did check what you suggested, visually and with a straight object as well. it looks quite tight, there isn't any fret misplaced. further if I play the B-string 20-24 frets they sound horrible (you clearly see that they are not blocked by the other frets), but only on that (seventh)...

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Hi all, Thank you for all the comments ! I'm not sure I understand you correctly, what I did is I took a long ruler - and put in on the frets to its length, I can see in the direction from 1st fret until the 24, that theres a tiny - mm or less gap towards the middle of it- it shows that there is...

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Hi All, Alan, I've just replaced the B-string, Im not plugged in and still have a dim sound from the B-string, from the 12 fret further its more evident that it does not produce a good sound, again for this test the action is quite high. What should I do ?

    Dear Alan, Thank you for your reply, Its not a mechanical problem, but an acoustic one. I will try to replace the string to see what happens. Any other possible causes ?

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Hi all, I just bought a lovely Mark Holcomb SVN, my first PRS, on the one hand in really happy overall, on the other hand i'm facing some issues that would make me return my guitar if cannot be fixed, which I really really don't want to do. My problem is that the low B-string is making a weak...
