    Welcome, Jeff. As Alnus said, you're among tinkerers - I consider myself one. Love setting action, pickup heights, etc in pursuit of that "just right" tone and feel; even replacing pickups and occasionally throwing caution to the wind and routing out holes for extra pickups. Well actually only did that once or twice and recently been exploring alternative pickup configurations on a S2 Standard 24 (Had to open up a "swimming pool" under the pickguard to facilitate different PU combinations. I'm looking for a SSS or HSH combination that will work on a 24 fret guitar and produce good "quack" as well as traditional HB tones. My "go to" sound has always been the SSS setup. Getting the magical "in between" sounds can sometimes be tricky, but persistence and lots of tweaking often pays off.

    Hey, re-new-by([email protected] aouto-incorrect!!) was here sever years ago looking for a PRS Se Goldtop Yup! You guessed it, David Grissom fan! Things took a turn but hopefully it's "Geting better better all the time"!
    Anyway, dig Rock, dig Roll, dig Funk, dig Deftones, Allmans, P-Funk ("We want the Funk! Heh!)
    Anyway, that's me. Am longtime member of TDPRI (can't remember the non-acronym but it's a bunch of cool cats & kitties geeking on all things Tele related plus a whole lot more!)
    But enuff about me! Thx for the add!

    I’m Matt. Been the owner of an Archtop II for over 20 yrs(!). Guitar finally needs a little refresh and I figured this is the right place to start.

    Welcome, Matt!
    Post some pics of your ArchtopII when you can. We all love to see those boxes.
    Don’t forget to possibly use one of those pics as an avatar.;):)

    Welcome to the party Matt! And GREAT username!!! As mentioned, we can not survive without pix of guitars, so be sure to post some. If you have any trouble posting pix, there are several posts on how to do so, including this one (a few other posts are linked from within that one as well). Also, your greatest (or any) hits and performances are welcome in the Studio & Stage section if you are inclined to share!!!

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. I will post some pics shortly. Since I’m looking to do a little updating, it might be a bit before we have some clips. Only thing I can promise, the wait won’t be worth it

    If you don’t mind me asking, where would be the best place to start a thread with questions/concerns/qualifications/misapprehensions about updating my Archtop?

    The “Electric Instruments” section would work.

    Hi, new forum member here, eagerly awaiting delivery of my first PRS. I started my guitar journey about three years ago and have been playing a Collings CJ - mostly fingerstyle - and purchased a HB2 Wood Library w/ Piezo to continue down that path with some new tones. I’ll post pics when it gets here this week, but it will be Copperhead Burst with ebony fretboard and headstock. I have access to an AC15 to start, but I need to figure out my amp situation next.

    Welcome, Jon! Congrats on the new HBII Piezo WL. The guitar will sound bright to begin with because of the maple top/back. There are plenty of folks here who can steer you correctly towards a good amp for your needs. Enjoy the journey...

    Welcome Jonathan!! My first PRS arrived in Feb of this year and it is a HBII WL, although mine does not have the Piezo!!! I was blown away by the tones, playability and beauty (and adore the light weight), and have since purchased two more PRS!!! Hopefully you have more self control or a larger bank account than I as you will need one of them to either fend off or satisfy the desires for more of these functional works of art!!! As you know, pix are important to us here!!! Also, be sure to post some of your music to the Studio & Stage forum section. It is after all why we spend princely sums on these hunks of wood and metal!!!

    Happy pickin'!
