I don't think anyone is blaming PRS. These seem few in number for issues, but I'm sure PRS would be happy someone is bringing it up. We all have faith that PRS will fix the issues and address these things especially with the stores.
The bent vintage style saddles are almost always like that. They aren't the nicest feeling against your hands. Sometimes I love the zingy sound the bent saddles provide, other times I prefer the solid saddles. I've owned a few guitars with them, and on one I ended up swapping them out for solid regular saddles.
You can however find 3rd parties selling replacement screws, or indeed screws and saddles. Raw Vintage come to mind. I'm fairly sure the RV saddles come with two sets of screws (longer vs shorter) so you can attempt to minimise the amount of thread poking through by a combination of screw length and saddle height. And I stumbled on a guy on YouTube who recommended buying different lengths of these to suit your needs. Looks like Callaham sell them in 3 different lengths too.
These Highwood saddles look pretty cool. They have recessed screws to alleviate the problem completely.
Yes! I've been buying from ZZounds for a while am convinced they are affiliated with AMS, as I've received boxes with AMS written on them.MF is GC, same company, MF is online only.
Stop buying from MF and GC, they are horrible with handling and storage of their equipment, especially from their "warehouse". I would only buy from them things I can inspect before purchase, unlike most all other retailers. It is insulting to blame PRS for GC problems, which most of this seems to be.
That's ridiculous.Just received my 3rd one from Musicians Friend, and its worse than the first 2.
Black specs in the clear coat, rough finish near the neck joint, and some kind of yellow stains splattered near the neck. So frustrating that they are sooooo sloppy. Loose jack and loose strap holders on this one too.
Guess im just going to pump the brakes in my Silver Sky GAS for now.
