    PRS Phase III Tuners on SE SS

    I was looking for a way to mount the Phase III tuners on my SE SS without seeing the footprint from the previous vintage tuners. I came across these little mounting plates from Graph Tech. They are mount plates meant for the GT Ratio Tuners but worked well with the Phase III tuners. The only...

    Locking Tuning Machines

    I have been learning guitar for about a year and a half, using a PRS SE Custom 22 electric PRS SE P20E acoustic. I am thinking of putting locking tuners on the electric, but I notice that there are no locking tuners on any of the McCarty models, all the way up to core (I have been lusting after...

    Locking tuners for ‘97 McCarty

    Hey guys, I’m new to the PRS world and have my first PRS, a ‘97 McCarty coming my way tomorrow. The only thing I would change about it is put locking tuners on it.

    Locking tuner cap screws

    Hi everyone, Hoping you knowledgeable folk could help me out. I was perusing the store and had a thought. Would the silver sky tuner cap screws fit on other PRS locking tuners?Specifically the low mass tuners on CE/S2 models. I reckon it might be a good look. There’s no reason I can think of...

    SE Locking Tuners compatible with my SE Paul's Guitar?

    Hey, I just bought the PRS SE Locking Tuners from Sweetwater. I'm hoping to upgrade the tuners on my SE Paul's Guitar. Clearly the tuners on the Paul's guitar must be different from the tuners on the other models in the SE line. I'm not jazzed about having extra holes on the back of my guitar...

    Kluson KCDL-3 v Gotoh SG381 Vs PRS for SE

    Hi all, I was sniffing around for locking tuners formy tremonti SE. I came across the Kluson KCDL-3 and I haven't heard much about them. They put a good gear ratio and don't have the small button issue of the gotohs. I could of course waited out for stock to arrive for the PRS SE lockers. Any...

    SE Locking Tuners - hardware issue

    My SE locking tuners finally arrived and I installed them today, only running into 1 minor issue. The supplied screws are too small (diameter, not length) for my 2017 MIK SE Santana. Maybe not an issue for guitars from Indonesia? I was able to just reuse the ones that came out of the stock...

    Locking Tuners SE Paul's Guitar

    I am looking into locking tuners and was wondering if the SE Paul's Guitar use the same tuners as SE Bernie Marsden & SE Zack Meyers. If so there's a set on John Mann's site that will work.

    Modified 2017 PRS Mark Holcomb SE

    Finally completed all the appropriate modifications to my Holcomb SE. First I switched out the tuners to Schaller M6 locking tuners, which were pretty much a direct fit. I then swapped out the nut for a Graph Tech Tusq, which I had a professionally installed and set up, this resolved all tuning...

    Hi everyone, I order the Schaller M6 locking tuners for my PRS Tremonti Custom SE but I have absolutely no idea how they work because I've never used locking tuners before. Not to sound stupid but I can't figure out how to thread the string through the peg. Despite loosening the lock behind...

    Hi everyone, I'm about to order some locking tuners for PRS Tremonti Custom SE and I've heard that both Sperzel (E70's) and Schaller (M6's) are both pretty good choices for locking tuners. I was just wondering whether anyone has a preference between these two and how they both compare against...
