    My 6120 Nashville is succumbing to binding rot after 41 years. The sad truth is that it wouldn't be worth much refinished and so I am thinking about recycling some of the parts into another guitar.

    Anybody put Filtertrons into a PRS?

    Do it.

    Would love to hear a side-by-side with a Core Starla, since those pickups are inspired by ‘Trons of some description.

    You want photos of a Gretsch double cut 6120 Nashville with rotting binding? Or is that the single malt talking?

    Do you have a suggestion for a model I should start looking for on Craig's List?

    No, I feel your pain for the “binding rot” and don’t mean to mock your loss.

    I mean the new PRS baby that you will bring into your family.

    Just a little humour to ease the pain. A proper malt will help too!

    There was absolutely nothing posted where I felt mocked. My response was based on feeling incredulous at the request but I was willing to post if that was what you really wanted ....

    I am seriously putting TV Jones something or others in humbucker form in one of my Custom 24s.

    Dew et!

    A Hollowbody would be a good place to start. Especially a Hollowbody Spruce

    Step one: Tequila.

    Those are already perfect.

    Doesn’t it bring you peace knowing that I’m the one constant in your life?

    I vote for an SC-J... might be tough to find secondhand, they didn't make too many, but to me that looks like a PERFECT platform for some Filtertrons...
