So, this time last week I was beaming with pride, because I finally got my new CE24. I have to admit, it's everything I dreamed it would be! I also own an Ibanez Prestige and a Jackson Soloist, and they are both fine guitars... but I don't think I'll ever play them again, now that I've played a PRS. Anyways, the CE24 is a fabulous guitar... but I knew that the bridge was 'lacking' when I first bought it, so I ordered a MannMade 2000NOS bridge for it. Here she is, completely stock, after my first week of ownership. The instructions that come with the Man bridge are fairly straightforwarward. I also had a week of waiting, before the 2000NOS arrived, so I watched John Mann's instructional video a few times. Remove the springs from the back. No need to remove or swap the factory claw: Unscrew the 6 bolts: Pull the old bridge out: The cream color pickup rings look good on a lot of PRS guitars... but on gray/black, I prefer black covers, so I swapped them out: The 2000NOS is on the left, and it's finish is SUBSTANTIALLY better than the stock one. Note the polished saddles. It's also considerably heavier, as it is made from solid brass (right), versus cheap cast steel (left). Putting the new one in was simple. Just drop it in and tighten down the 6 screws. There needs to be 2.5mm of clearance under the screw head. Mann supplies a 2.5mm allen key to use as a depth guage. Works perfectly. No drilling was required. The 6 new screws went right into the original holes. I applied a bit of string lube to each saddle, as well as to the nut, before re-stringing: I also changed my truss rod cover. Being a Christian man, and going with the bird theme... I chose a dove: Pull through some new D'addario EXL strings: Threw on a new black toggle switch cap, and here's the finished product: The whole bridge swap was moronically easy. Took about 45 minutes. To be honest; the hardest thing was putting the new pickup rings on! Those darn springs are hard to line-up and get the height adjustment screw in. Spent another 45 minutes doing; tuning, saddle height adjustment, and intonation. Then I took her down to the basement to play... oh my, what an improvement! The new bridge is so much better than the stock one. SO MUCH BETTER.
