    Good thoughts here. Very good.


    I might my 2018 SE Tremonti Custom and swapped to USA Tremonti signature pickups and Mann Made locking tuners and now the USA nut.

    The fing tremolo bridge just will not stay in fing tune. I'm tired of it. I don't want to dick with it anymore. I love the guitar, it's the best guitar that I've ever owned but, I'm just tired of the damn tremolo bridge nonsense.

    I love tremolos. I love divebombs, I love trem flutters. But, I'm just over it. Y'know? It sucks to have to give it up but, I use it so rarely anyways. I've ever heard that FRs and Schallers have mild tuning problems.

    IDK.

    Try a core model with a trem, you will have a better opinion of the PRS trem system ;)

    I owned a std 22 in the past, but I wanted to try the PRS trem. So I picked an old CE22, and it's definitely a win.

    Either, A) put a Mann bridge on it, or B) block the trem! If you love the guitar, either of these should fix it. Preferably A since you love a trem.

    I lived in Australia for two years. My GAS was never lower!

    Eh. I'm over it. I'll probably block it for a while but, ultimately, I'm just tired of dealing with it

    I'm late to the party, but I picked up my SC245 last year second hand and it's still as awesome as the day it was made, even though it's now 6 years old - it shouldn't be that hard to find one second hand?

    Yeah, I'm guessing you're right.



    I haven't thought much about used just cause I know it's a crap shoot. You never know when some A-hole is going to sell you some clapped out POS that looks good in photos but, has wiring issues, a twisted neck, shorted pickups, and an output jack filled with cottage cheese.
