    Today I’d have to say it’s this, because that’s what I decided to play. I’m both wishy and washy.

    I played it through an amp I don’t use as much as my PRS amps, a Mesa Lone Star 100. And it sounded really, really good. Seriously, can this guitar sound bad at anything? I don’t think so!

    And it’s not PS, not nitro, not fancy. Just good sounding, sweet playing PRS Core goodness. I really like this guitar.

    It’s one of those guitars that I think, “I’m so glad I got this thing while they were available.”

    Maybe I've posted this before, don't really care. This one was following me around yesterday, and I haven't touched a guitar all day today so:

    Where did you get the wooden buttons from, for your Gotoh tuners?

    To be honest I can't remember. they were originally on my modded BC Rich Eagle deluxe that I've had for years. They are the Gotoh SG381 with button EN-07.
    https://g-gotoh.com/international/product/sg381.html

    To be honest finding replacement buttons for gotoh is a PITA. I've just ordered some cheap Ivoroid ones from vietnam that are supposed to fit (I'll let you know) If I was doing this again from start I'd go with Schaller M6 and then get the buttons from here
    https://www.crazyparts.de/hailwood/tunerbuttons/schallerm6/index.php (It's also a good place from fancy knobs).

    If your after a fancy truss rod cover I know 2 great guys (just make sure they know its for a SE).
    RDCustomguitars =https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/rdcustom...TRK:MEFSXS:MESOI&_trksid=p2053788.m1543.l2654
    His Reverb Page = https://reverb.com/uk/shop/silkes-gear-garage (A couple of nice SE's on there at the moment)

    His guy only shows US Covers but if you ask him he will make the same design in SE size
    WEC TRC Inlay = https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/wectrussrodcoverinlay/PRS/_i.html?_storecat=2914143016
    His webpage = http://www.wecinlay.com/

    I originally used WEC but the latest couple (The Santana one & the Bernie) have come from Silke at RDCustom (Slightly cheaper and ship a little quicker)

    Thanks for the links.

    I’m looking for some Ziricote buttons for Gotoh magnums.

    I’m gonna have a go at making some TRC’s. I’ve got some nice Rosewood, Ebony and Walnut off cuts.

    Mine won’t be anywhere near as fancy as th links you’ve put up!
