    Best action for DGT SE

    I've just taken delivery of the DGT SE gold top. While I'm excited, the action is extremely high, measuring 3mm on the low E (12th fret) and 2.5mm on the high E. This support page mentions: Treble-side string height at 12th fret: 1.8/32" - 2.3/32" (1.4mm -1.8mm) Bass-side string height at...

    Bridge pick up and volume control DGT

    Currently playing a new 2020 DGT . On the bridge pick up i find that rolling of volume control changes the sound very little. From 10 down to 6. The neck pick up is the opposite. the guitar cleans up at arond 6 or 7. I really love this guitar and i do like how the pick up sounds, just wish it...

    Collection Chronicles: My 'DGT of DOOM'

    Some of you are aware that I have a DGT lurking about in the collection. Fewer of you are aware that I have modified it to an inch of its life (not really. I just liked the turn of phrase) Jokes apart, my 2018 Charcoal Purple Burst DGT is one of my favourite guitars, particularly because it...

    Semi-hollow DGT

    Twice I've seen David Grissom post a "non-standard" DGT. Once with soap bar pickups. This time, it was my dream guitar - A semi-hollow DGT. https://www.instagram.com/p/CTV1TcHs6v0/

    A Tale of Two DGTs

    About 3 years ago, I bought my first DGT--a used Honey with a Brazilian Board and a wonderful Artist quilt top. It was my third PRS, after a Core DC 594 and a Private Stock Santana Retro. This very quickly became the standard by which all guitars were measured for me. Indeed, it was the...

    NGD - 2020 DGT - Dark Cherry Sunburst

    I've had the guitar for a few of months now, was trying to take some good pics before I posted, but that didn't work out so well. :oops: What an awesome guitar! The sweet sounds are like a mix of vintage and modern, very distinct, articulate, chewy, with really nice smooth overtones. With the...

    My DGT

    I finally understand what it means to "connect" with a guitar. Yes, I know I'm still in the honeymoon phase with it, but it seriously feels like this guitar was made for me. I bought this guitar from Willcutt Guitars in Lexington, Kentucky. They were easy to deal with, provided same day...

    NGD...Very Soon!

    Hello, all. I'm new to this forum and PRS guitars. I ordered my first PRS yesterday and it is expected to arrive Thursday. I haven't been this excited since my daughter was born. This new guitar is my mid-life crisis birthday gift and it's a DGT goldtop with bird inlays and bound neck. A...

    [SOLVED] Any way to tell if my PRS has the new pickups & finish?

    I just purchased a DGT online. I'm super stoked as I've literally wanted one since they were released--it's one of my "holy grail" guitars. The store said this particular specimen does have the CAB finish (which I care about) and TCI pickups (which I don't care so much about; the original DGT...

    Tremolo arms

    My new DGT came with a straight tremolo arm. It didn’t feel right to me since the arm was too close to the strings. I ordered another arm from a seller on Reverb and got the more traditional arm with a crook in it. Is the straight arm a DGT thing? I can’t seem to find a pic online of a DGT (or...

    Solid colors vs. transparent finish

    Greetings, I have a DGT in platinum metallic coming tomorrow. I’ve always been drawn to the solid colors, especially black, antique white, and the gold tops. My question is: Does anyone know the percentage of core models that are produced in the solid colors?

    Thoughts on how rig and location effects how you like components

    So I did my first gig in a long time over the weekend. I was a sub rhythm player for a buddy's blues band at the local horse racing track. Was actually a lot of fun, but I do have some issues with the sport, that's not the topic though. Round first of the year I got a new to me DGT. 08 goldtop...

    Hello fellow Birds & Moons, I am a rather newbie to fantastic PRS world, coming primarily from Les Paul land. Have recently acquired these aforementioned beauties and want to go for next one, I'm in splits about buying a Custom 24 especially so as I have never played owned or seriously...

    DGT Opinion needed: sell /trade or swap bridge pickup?

    Hi folks I have a 2018 core DGT in purple. Neck feels great, frets feel great, the neck pickup sounds beautiful and it plays like a dream.But I just can't get along with the bridge pickup as it's too trebly for my taste and doesn't suit palm muting and high gain. I'm not a metal player per se...

    Video review of my new DGT

    Hi folks, Not really very active on the forum, though I have a bunch of PRSs (one 594, 3 513s, a Custom 22 (that's about to go) and a Custom 24). So after years of thinking about it, I spotted a DGT on sale in Andertons and got it. And I love it, it completely lives up to the hype. So excited...

    String too close to edge

    Hi... I have an '09 DGT with the treble E string too close to the edge of the fret board (1/8th, or 0.125"). The bass E string is OK (3/16, or 0.188"). It is the same for the whole length of the fret board. The end dressing of the frets brings brings it too close... it sometimes slips off using...

    DGT pickups microphonic?

    Hi everybody, a quick question to those owning a DGT and other PRS guitars: I have a really nice 2016 DGT. I noticed that this guitar starts to squeal (microphonic) much earlier than e.g. my McCarty with 57/08 pickups, my Santana III or my Les Paul with Burstbuckers. I am not talking about...

    My new DGT Artist Package

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forums but I wanted to share my first entry to the PRS world. It's a special guitar for several reasons. I'll keep it short, life is funny sometimes and I've ended up living in Costa Rica since 2016. I managed to track some stores and I settled with the best in my...
