    PRS SE Custom 24: Tremolo or Mounting Screws Replacements

    Sounds like a winner to me…once I read online that John directly took an active role alongside Paul in the early days of PRS, he’s “The Mann” man!

    PRS SE Custom 24: Tremolo or Mounting Screws Replacements

    Greetings all, I’ve searched the forum and online and haven’t really found the answers I need. I recently purchased a new PRS SE Custom 24 from Sweetwater. As with most every SE I’ve purchased, there are always minor hardware quality issues which can be upgraded with better made hardware. For...

    Are there any HB pickups which split to a great sounding SC…???

    Here are two different wiring diagrams which show how to make the SC pickups see a 250K Volume Pot.

    Are there any HB pickups which split to a great sounding SC…???

    Okay, since the bridge pickup on my SE Swamp Ash is connected to ground when coil split, I recorded the DI signal of neck, middle, bridge pickups (neck, bridge coil split) and they are fairly well balanced between all three of them. So then I soldered a 6.8k (it’s all I had) on the bridge coil...

    Are there any HB pickups which split to a great sounding SC…???

    The original SE Swamp Ash wiring diagram shows a 1.1k for the neck but no resistor for the bridge. I double checked and there is indeed a 1.1k resistor used for the neck in my altered wiring. I read somewhere that Lindy Fralin suggests using a 7k resistor, what’s the logic behind that value?

    Are there any HB pickups which split to a great sounding SC…???

    Greetings all…okay, so this past weekend I rewired my SE Swamp Ash with a 3-way ON ON ON DPDT toggle switch and kept the Push/Pull Coil Split. So the 3-way toggle switch is now Bridge/Middle/Neck and Bridge-Split/Middle/Neck-Split. I like this wiring configuration much better than the stock...

    De-Acquisition Mode - I'm Hearing That A Lot Lately.

    Thanks to everyone that felt moved or related to my story. What’s fascinating to me is that regardless of how long or short your stories have been, each of you have shared so many of the facets of man and music (females equally included). Seems like each of us has experienced a part(s) of the...

    De-Acquisition Mode - I'm Hearing That A Lot Lately.

    I find myself in a similar and not-similar aspect of life. I turned 60 this year, I’ve been divorced for 30 years, no children, parents and siblings all passed away. I’m the last man standing, so to speak. I became disabled 4+ years ago and I’m bed/wheelchair-ridden. Though I can transfer to and...

    Official SE Swamp Ash Wiring Diagram (can someone explain something)???

    Greetings Swampers, PRSers and Wiring Brainiacs, Okay, I’ve posted photos of the SE Swamp Ash Pickup Selections as well as a beneath the hood photo of the official wiring diagram. I’m fairly decent at figuring out signal flow and other such details…but this has me stumped and I’m sure some of...

    Can someone please explain why my posting was deleted???

    Hmmm??? Scratching my head…it was never my intent to make so much work (or any work for that matter) for the moderators. Even though I haven’t posted in these forums for long, I’ve never previously experienced a delay/approval for any of my postings. And as PRS Mods Too pointed out, when I...

    New: SE Swamp Ash (Bridge Screws Issue)

    It won’t be an issue for me, I’ve been setting up my guitars for over 30+ years. It’s just disappointing when you purchase a new guitar and the inspection coming from PRS is signed off on despite having minor issues. In regards to zZounds, I spoke to them on the phone before purchasing the SE...

    Can someone please explain why my posting was deleted???

    I did repost over in the Electric Guitars forum. I gave my previous posting some thought and think I know why they took it down. I guess sometimes you can walk a fine line between adhering and somewhat not adhering to forum rules. LOL

    New: SE Swamp Ash (Bridge Screws Issue)

    Greetings PRS’ers…I purchased a new SE Swamp Ash (Iris Blue) from zZounds and received it this past Saturday. There were some minor issues with the guitar, one of which I wanted to share with the forum. Understand, I’m not posting out of anger but simply for sharing information. As the attached...

    Can someone please explain why my posting was deleted???

    Greetings all PRS’ers…I’m confused. I posted in the Electric Instruments about some Quality Control issues with my new SE Swamp Ash and also included some photos of the bridge pivot screws. I just checked for my posting and it’s gone, not moved to another forum or thread, just altogether gone. I...

    PRS SE Swamp Ash (Quality Control Issues)

    Greetings all PRS’ers, I don’t know if it’s luck of the draw or what…but I ordered a SE Swamp Ash (Iris Blue) Tuesday of last week from zZounds and actually received the guitar this past Saturday. I decided I’m keeping this specific guitar because I don’t want to get into a cycle of...

    Is my PRS SE Silver Sky Neck/Headstock Twisted ???

    Greetings fellow PRSers…I wanted to update everyone regarding my SE Silver Sky neck being twisted. But firstly, I have to give props to PRS Customer Support, the PRS Tech Center, and especially for Ryan and all his help and assistance, he rules when it comes to customer support. In fact, I have...

    Made some changes to my Silver Sky SE...

    Yeah, the maple fingerboards came out just recently and they’re just getting them in stock in stores and online. Here’s the three color options they offer in maple. I already own one in Nylon Blue but wish I would have gotten the Overland Gray instead. I like both colors equally but started...

    Is my PRS SE Silver Sky Neck/Headstock Twisted ???

    Okay, I contacted PRS and they want to see my SE Silver Sky for themselves. So they issued an RA and paid for FedEx shipping to their Maryland location. Good thing I kept all the original packaging. It makes it so much easier when you keep “all” the original packaging. Growing up, my father...

    Made some changes to my Silver Sky SE...

    Good choice on the ivory buttons, looks far better than the stock grey ones. I’m thinking about purchasing a second SS but in Overland Gray. The body color and tuning heads, truss cover look really good together on this color of guitar. Plus, the flying birds are grey as well. But, one could...

    Is my PRS SE Silver Sky Neck/Headstock Twisted ???

    It’s the SE Silver Sky and purchased new on August 6th. So it’s still in warranty. In fact, I had to contact PRS Customer Support because one of the tremolo/bridge pivot screws screw head was somewhat deformed. They sent me a new pair of pivot screws for free. On another note, regarding the SE...
