    Trouble finding pickguards online to customize SE P20E Antique White.

    Hey everyone. I don't know if any other guitar players out there, who own the SE P20E, have run into this issue as well when looking to customize their acoustic? I've spent days, even weeks, looking online for pickguards that match the dimensions of the one that comes on the SE P20E and haven't...

    The "Forum Package"

    Let me start with a short prayer: "Dear Paul, who art in Stevensville, protect me in my pure and heartfelt efforts!" So @]-[@n$0Ma☩!© recently posted a new iteration of the "Forum Guitar" project and I respect his efforts. My suggestion of cosmetic features only was dismissed, and that is fine...

    Narrowfield Coil Tap/Split

    Is there a version of the Narrowfield that has a coil tap or split? I am trying to spec out a PS build of a SSH, with some custom switching and didn't know if they had ever offered that. I have a WL SHH and love the tone of the Narrowfield, but would like the option to have more tonal...

    Private Stock orders during lockdown

    I have a deal with my wife that when I finish grad school I can get my first PS to celebrate! As things stand now, we might still be in lockdown/quarantine when that happens. I always dreamed of going to the factory with a dealer to pick the woods I want and everything. I wanted to see it in...

    Modifying a Private Stock Headstock Inlay & Refinish.

    I have two blue Private stock PRS's. One I left in a case and forgot about, and the other so nice I left it on a stand by a open window for a few years. As you can imagine that guitar is no longer blue, and now more of a light grey. I really don't like it, and I really want a Scarlet Red guitar...

    Pickup Polarity on the Customs?

    Howdy everyone, A couple years ago, I did a major rewiring round on my Santana SE. The idea was to get to some of the options on the Customs. I swapped out the selector switch for a 5-position rotary, and wired it to get the Custom combos. I also swapped out the pickup magnets, and even their...

    Can a person have a custom 1 off PRS built?

    I am interested in having a 1 off PRS double neck guitar custom built. With elaborate Dragons and stuff inlaid on the body and fretboard, kind of like the 20th anniversary Dragon, but completely different. .594 style, stop tail, Brazilian neck and Brazilian fretboard. Is this something that...

    Repairing 2002 CU22 Pickup Covers

    Hi all, I recently purchased a used 2002 Custom 22 - it's gorgeous but the pickup covers and stoptail are pretty tarnished. What would you use to restore the shine on the covers and stoptail? Thanks in advance!

    Hey everyone, new to the forum and a happy new owner of a PRS SE Custom 24 Floyd (2019). I have to thank the quarantine for this guitar, because I was away visiting family when the shelter orders came down and was able to stay with the family for many, many weeks while working remotely. I needed...

    Fitting a Calton case to the SS

    Twelve years ago, I ordered a custom fitted Calton case in Calgary for a now-sold short horns DC style guitar. Kept the case, of course, but being exactly fitted to that guitar, it didn't fit anything else until I decided to put the scissors and thread and needle (and some sweat) into it. It now...

    Coil Tap using Push/Pull with a 5-way

    Hi, I was wondering about possible electronic mods to a Custom 24 with a 5-way blade (latest version). If I were to install a push/pull tone pot to split the neck pickup - would I need further upgrades, like a 5-way “mega” blade? If needed, would it be easier (and possible) to change...

    No pickguard for Custom?

    I started playing in July 2017 on acoustic and am preparing to get an electric. I haven’t quite figured out what guitar I want, but PRS is the front runner as I liked how they felt most. One thing I am concerned with is scuffing up whatever beauty I end up buying. I have my eye on several...

    Sunday Handwound Pickups - PRS Starla

    Recently I decided to take the plunge and have my Starla's pickups replaced to exactly what I wanted. It's a 2008, and it's been the main studio and session guitar for 9 years. The coil tap, laid back sounds, bigsby, bright pickups meant that it had a real friendly voice. Everything short of...
