I'm looking at buying an SE Standard 24 in vintage cherry to replace my existing stop tail Tremonti SE. I like the shape and the idea of having a tremolo. How are the stock pickups for playing clean? Are there any secrets to using the coil split option? How is tuning stability with moderate trem use? Are there any must-have mods to be aware of? Do you need locking tuners, for example, or a new nut, and how well engineered is the existing trem or is it a tone suck?
