I see a lot of posts lately asking about common mods for PRS guitars so I thought I'd share my thoughts. While I am never a fan of making modifications to a guitar unless they improve the instrument for MY needs/tastes, there is certainly some benefit to sharing what we've done, how we've done it, and the results of the mods we've made so others can make more informed decisions. To that end, I offer you the first two of four modifications I make to almost every PRS I own. One mod is for the stoptail bridge and the other is for the trem bridge. It is fair to say that I detest sharp edges on a guitar. My style includes a lot funky licks and palm-muting so the heel of my right hand is grinding on the bridge in one way or another most of the time. I immediately notice any sharp edge(s) on a bridge. Such is the case with the end of stoptail bridges - just above the upper bridge stud. To resolve this, all you need is a hobby filing kit and a set of micro mesh pads (3,000-12,000 grit). First, get rid of those evil sharp edges, but just those that extend past the top of the bridge stud. Then get after it with your Micro-Mesh, starting at 1,500 or 3,000 grit until you finish with 12,000 grit. The finished product will look something like this. When you reinstall the bridge with new strings, it will look like this. You'll wonder why you didn't make this mod years ago. I make a similar change to every tremolo bridge. Note the corner of the low 'E' saddle (against the trem) relative to the corners of the 'A' and the 'D' saddle. The photo isn't sharp but you get the idea. And it's so nice when its done. While you're there, shorten the grub screws by filing down the side under the saddle (if they are not already counter-sunk into the saddle). Those will shred your hand too. Here is a look at the same mod on nickel-plated saddles.
