    Replacement Tuners for new Zach Myers SE?

    Hey all. I just bought a Zach Myers SE. brand new 2021 in blue. I’m looking to put locking tuners on it, but I’ve read so much conflicting information. A lot of folks says the Gotoh SD90 is a direct drop in, but then I read on here that they didn’t work for some people due to the size. Wondering...

    S2 Vela Bridge (type d) pole height adjustment?

    Hi everyone! I'm new here. I bought a vela a couple months ago and I like it quite a lot. My only complaint with it is that the neck pickup seems to be very muddy and way too bass heavy for my taste. I've found that if I lower its height considerably its much less muddy/beefy and more...

    NGD - First PRS! Looking for Suggestions

    Hey Everyone, Today I received my first ever PRS. I’m usually a Fender guy, but was looking for a good value guitar with buckers. I found a KILLER deal on a SE Mira. Played it and the quality is stellar. I think I made a great decision. :) I have a set of Lindy Fralin Pure PAF that I was...

    Is modding PRS guitars common?

    I have not seen much mods done to PRS guitars using other brands parts, but I have been out of the game awhile. Is it pretty common? What do you think of mods to any popular model? I wonder if my “S” guitar will be a vintage guitar in 30 years, but will it have value with the original parts not...

    2-Wire to 4-Wire Conversion

    Has anyone here ever converted a 2-conductor pickup into a 4 conductor pick up? I ask because I have a Tremonti SE that I’ve upgraded with USA Pickups. I added a push/pull pot the bridge Humbucker and it’s awesome, I love having the versatility of coil splitting. I want to do it to the neck as...

    Proof of Concept: The Vela Trem

    Hey everybody! Thought I'd share my pet project PRS that I've labored on for almost 2 years to get it where it is today. This is my ideal version of the PRS Vela Trem idea talked about by so many. After cutting a new pickguard, swapping pickups, and rewiring the entire guitar, it was time to...

    worst mod

    i once pulled the frets out of a 60s teisco del rey because i wanted to try a fretless. still sounded terrible. worse: stripped the factory finish off a rickenbacker 360/12 jetglo i bought new because i wanted a red one. ‘is that binding melting? so it is.’ what are your crimes against guitar?

    Seymour Duncan Custom Shop '78 Model

    Hello! :) I don't think I've seen any info on this pickup so I thought I'd share my experience! It's the VH pickup apparently, although due to licensing etc, they can't say so. Described as a PAF rewind, mine is listed on the pack at 9.0k, Alnico II, initalled MJ which is apparently a good...

    Seeking split coil wiring diagram help for 2017 Zach Myers

    I did a fun coil-splitting mod on my SE C22 semihollow, but in that case I also put in S-D pickups and a six-way toggle to control the selections. Worked great, and S-D (and the Free-way switch company) had great documentation available so my task was rather straightforward. This time around...

    PRS SE Bernie Marsden Mods (Again)

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and new to PRS guitars of any kind, USA or Korea. I own 2 electric guitars at the moment, a 1956 Stratocaster and a 1953 Black Guard Tele (both vintage). I use to own an early 1959 Les Paul, also original, that I had to sell it 5 years ago. I recently came across a...
