    New 245 DC Ted Day - Bob Ross inspired

    Bought myself a Christmas present, as Bob Ross would say it was a "happy little accident". While I was researching to upgrade my DGT to a PAF more to my liking. I was digging around reverb considering 57/08's. I tripped across a TED, 245 double cut 2009, I really couldn't believe how it...

    PRS Aluminum Stoptail VS. MannMade 2300

    I'm forming the opinion that the MannMade 2300 is an amazing upgrade. perhaps we should just put it in the category of different tones available. because the standard bridge is also very nice. however I just purchased 2018 Experience Paul's guitar, and it seemed like a really cool...

    NGD - Pauls Guitar; Experience the TCI in Black Gold

    so I feel like I should be starting the 12 step program, First admit that your powerless, whenever you see a bottle (guitar) of black gold you must have it. I'm starting to think I should go to a program for guitar addicts. I am so weak I can't resist. I've only had it for about 4 hours. but...

    Ziricote Fretboard -Tone Scouting mission

    ziricote seems to be creeping into fretboards more and more. I've had my eye on several PRS guitars with ziricote fretboard. I probably would probably own one now if they had Brazilian rosewood. I've tried to do my 30 minutes of Ziricote homework. She is a beautiful looking wood,very...

    S2 fretboard quality gray splotchy not very impressive

    so I decided I want to get a mira S2, it's fantastic that the sellers can take such high quality photos of the actual guitar. I went through about 20 different S2 mira photo sets, I was shocked to see how discolored, not uniform, white, gray splotchy, open pores, fibers lifting, lack of...

    putting my new 2008 Mira through its paces, I've now had it for 2 weeks, trying to tweak it to my preferences. Such an Interesting Guitar. I went ahead and installed the Schroeder aluminum wraparound with brass saddles, and it seemed to even out the tone, and sounds basically great. It...

    got this in last night last-minute, before turkey day, UPS drivers last stop of the day, 9 PM at night. Wow wow wow, I have been slowly picking through various lightweight guitars, finally figured out heavy guitars hurt your body about 4 years ago. I tried 3 or 4 hollow bodies at that time 4...

    NGM (month) cage match David Grissom DGT versus Paul's guitar one must go!

    it's been well over a year of experimenting trying to get the ideal humbucker with tremolo guitar, the 1st one was a Joe Satriani musclecar orange, tried that for 6 months, really liked the guitar in general. The neck pickup really well thought out, coil taps push pull, treble bleed, the...

    I've searched the forum, not much of a well described review available for the Santana multidimensional. some discussion but not very deep. 10 years ago I thought it seemed like I was going to buy one just never got a chance,. I've certainly done the basic Google searches, the ultimate Santana...

    Deep gouge in mahogany neck, should I repair it, can I repair it?

    I was putting this in the guitar stand, missed just slightly, It bounced a glancing blow off of the body edge of my PRS 594 . I can't find a hint of damage on the PRS body. But the LP neck took the brunt of the injury. PRS wins the battle. I really don't notice it when I'm playing, it has...

    NGD - Blue Guitar Day! Paul's Guitar, Faded Blue Jean Quilt WOW

    Got to play it for a few hours, the PRS mini-humbucker's are awesome. Wow! AC/DC and Van Halen just lept out of the guitar. the volume knob is more of a gain knob, I seem to turn the volume knob only the gain is reduced and not the volume super impressive, how it cleans up. Took this...

    Treble Bleed on the McCarty 594, who has done it?

    I use the volume control on most of my guitars to subtly dial in the gain as needed. The McCarty 594 volume is one of the worst ones I've had for killing or losing the treble, totally changing the sound and EQ. so I'm really convinced I need to put in a treble bleed circuit, but I certainly...

    McCarty 594, pickups and tone chasing; 5 pickups in 5 days

    A small story, some observations and possible learnings. I've had my McCarty 594 double cut for a few weeks now, and like many others I found the 58/15 LT, in the bridge position a little bit lacking in drive. But I was quite aware that it supported the middle position by blending with the neck...

    Wiring 85/15 - 3 wire (plus shielding) into the PRS 594

    I put the 85 / 15 into the bridge of my PRS 594, I really think it is going to be perfect sound. Just that extra level of heat. It would have been nice if I could find the 2 wire version just black and white (ha ha) for simplicity of plug and play. But I ended up with the 3 wire red, white...

    What Happened to the PRS Pickup Training Guide Draft

    I thought Shawn was onto an extremely good idea. Creating an outline and a summary of the general features and general technical specifications of each PRS pickup. We all know that Paul wants to hold back proprietary information, Which makes sense. but most of the Potential PRS players are...

    Swapping The bridge pickup in the PRS 594, 3 wire vs stock 2 wire

    I am ready to swap the 58/15 LT Two wire with a 59/09 33 wire. I'd like to try and get it right the first time. This guitar has the 4 knob setup, 2 volumes, 2 tone pots that split each pickup to single coil, must maintain that. Very simple set up in there, The 58/15 only has a main...

    Maple Necks on Mahogany Bodies : Tone?

    Hi all, I see that PRS is offering this combination a lot recently, so I am imagining that a few people can compare head to head and compare and contrast the differences to the classic hog neck on hog body, I am mostly interested in the rosewood fretboard on the maple neck tone (on the...

    Removing the pickup cover of a 57/08

    I have a nickel brushed cover On a 57/08 Bridge pickup. I think the open coil 57/08 might be an improved tone for me, Has anyone removed the cover,?? Paul has stated that the cover was never intended to come off and expose the bobbins. And that the bobbins are ugly. The open coil that you can...
