    PRS 35th Anniversary SE Custom 24

    Hi everyone, I bought a PRS 35th Anniversary SE Custom 24 and it's a really nice guitar. I really like the neck, weight and how it feels overall. I do like the coil-split functionality, but for some reason I don't like the humbucker sounds. This is specially evident with the neck pickup, it...

    MT-15 tone issues - input appreciated!

    First time poster here. I'm looking for recommendations on dialing in my MT-15 tone. I recently acquired this amp in mint condition, but haven't been able to get it to sound the way I want. I have always been a Mark Tremonti fan (both his sound and style), and the tone that a lot of people seem...

    PRS S2 pots - PRS vs CTS, others?

    From what I understand, the S2 electronics aren't the best and may need to be replaced at some point. I noticed the PRS push pull pots are selling for 16 bucks. I checked around and saw name brands like CTS, Bourne and Alpha for much less. What do you guys prefer and use when you need to...

    Why do I not like the sound of my beautiful McCarty?

    I have a beautiful 2007 McCarty with an amber sunburst finish. I bought it new back in 2007 or 2008. The guitar is perfectly built, stays in tune, intonates well, has good sustain, etc. I want to love the guitar, but there is something about the tone of the guitar that has always left me...

    Strat quack

    Does anyone know if you can get more Strat bridge/middle quack by installing a 5 way blade switch on an SE Custom 24 with 2 humbuckers? It already has coil split on a push pull pot. Thanks

    Dark Neck Pickup

    Hi, I have a PRS Quatro (which I love) but it seems that the neck became dark tonally. Is there anything I can do to pop the high frequencies? Looking forward to hear from you guys. Adir.

    Mark Holcomb 7 SVN b-string problem / making dim weak tone

    Hi all, I just bought a lovely Mark Holcomb SVN, my first PRS, on the one hand in really happy overall, on the other hand i'm facing some issues that would make me return my guitar if cannot be fixed, which I really really don't want to do. My problem is that the low B-string is making a weak...

    Old SC 245 owners, what are the pickups like?

    I went searching for this topic, but couldn't seem to find anything on the pickups specifically. Any owners of a 2000s era SC245 in here? What were those pickups like? I ask because I'm considering buying a used one and would like to know ahead of time what they're like. Any other pickups on the...

    SE Tone and switching question

    I've got an SE Custom 22 and have recently noticed a couple things. First the 3 way toggle switch sometimes requires some jiggling when switching to the bridge pickup to get sound. It seems ok in the middle and neck position. I'm thinking this is because the switch tends to hang on the inside of...

    PRS Signature Cables - Anyone Try Them?

    Just wondering if anyone has tried the new PRS signature cables. I'm on the fence between Mogami and PRS right now for a new 18' cable.

    PRS CE 24 rotary knob

    I have an older PRS CE 24 and wanted to know which position gives what tone. I found this: Position 10: Humbucking treble (bridge) pickup alone Position 9: Outside coils of both pickups in parallel for what PRS calls a “deep and clear” sound Position 8: Series single coils – PRS describes...

    Need help with tone. So much low end.

    Hey all, sorry if wrong place to post this. I have a S2 semi hollow single cut and a katana 50. There is so much bass i dont want to play, every thing sounds like mud. I roll all the bass off on the EQ and bump mids and treble to about 2 o’clock, then i avoid the 6th string. I have looked...

    Treble bleed question

    I’m convinced that the treble bleed cap makes a difference, even with the volume at 10. It’s wired to the input and the output. Discuss?

    Thoughts on Sound of S2 Studio

    A couple days ago I picked up an S2 Studio with the hopes of adding a versatile "super Strat" to my collection. And I must say, everything about the guitar is fantastic--except it doesn't sound like a Strat. Is it possible that I may have a defective pickup, bad wiring or something? I love the...

    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...

    PRS/Amplifier Combinations

    This is my first post on the PRS Forum. I'm looking forward to conversations with you and others. I recently purchased a PRS S2 Custom 24. I have a Blackstar HT Club 40 MKII amp. I'm considering getting another amp thinking I can get better tone from a different brand amp. I enjoy a clean...

    #7 Bridge Pickup

    So I pickup up a 2017 PRS S2 Singlecut Satin recently and I definitely love the guitar. With that said, I am very much on the fence with the stock #7 bridge pickup. I find that I don't mind and many even like how it mixes with the neck #7 in the middle position; however, when I just play that...

    Finding your Tone

    We all have our own definition of what "tone" is and sounds like. And, we all have our own way of finding that perfect tone. I've bought pedals that come preprogrammed with someone else tone, and I've experimented with junk pedals and expensive guitars (and vice versa) to find that signature...

    PRS Custom 22 - Tone pot issue

    Hi All, I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some guidance. I recently picked up a 2010 PRS C22 (lefty) and noticed that (1) the push-pull hardly makes any difference and (2) the tone control doesn't taper, instead quickly phasing in at about 3 on the dial. I'm not sure if anyone ever...

    PRS SE Custom 24 tone pull push knob too loose

    Hi everyone, I have just bought a new PRS SE Custom 24 and I'm delighted with the sound, feeling, action and look of my guitar. However I feel the tone pull push knob much more easier to turn than the volume one. Is it normal or is this a sympton of future problems? If it is not normal, can I...
