    I purchased my first PRS about 1.5 weeks ago - a Seafoam Green Vela. Loving it so far and I haven't pulled any of my Stratocasters out of their cases since I got the Vela home.

    Hi! New member and "PRS" (SE Custom 24) owner. Glad to be here. This guitar is unlike any I've ever played. I'm a usual Strat/Ibanez player but love the tone and feel of the PRS-style neck and body. I do have questions, though, and I'll post those in the appropriate forum.

    Thanks!

    Hello, new member here. I have had a PRS Torero for a couple years and love it. Going to be switching it over to passive pickups when I get the parts in.

    Hi folks. Just ordered my first PRS. Wood library DGT. Should have it next week. I play blues/rock/Americana/etc. Dead/McMurtry/Allmans/Clapton/etc. Sold a LP to pay for my PRS jones. :) Forums like these are a good place to learn a lot about new instruments and their finer points.
    Let's see if this photo works...

    Hi all! New member to the forum but a long time PRS lover/owner. As you can tell from my user name, in addition to my SC245 and CE24, I have a DGT (2011 10 top Yellow Tiger) that I think is the most awesome, versatile axe I have ever played! Looking forward to learning and sharing with everyone. :p

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Billy and I live in London. I recently bought a new PRS Tremonti Custom SE pictured below. The guitar is great but I'm not really happy with the tuning stability so I plan to make a few modifications and set it up to be able to use heavier strings for low tunings. I've done some research and plan to replace the stock nut and machine heads with a Graph Tech Tusq Nut (PT-6643-00) and Schaller locking tuners. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Nice one Billy! The Tusq XL nut is great, with that and the locking tuners you should be in good shape. If you really abuse your trem it would still go out a little, but I have a similar setup to what you're planning on my SE and I can dive bomb it here and there and be ok.

    Welcome!

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for your reply. Did you replace the parts yourself or had it done by a professional? I can replace the tuners myself but replacing the nut can be a bit tricky so I'm wondering whether or not I should do it myself.

    Hello all! New member here, finally decided to join up on here after picking up all four Zach Myers SE signatures the past couple years!!

    One day hope to have an American-made PRS but wow, the SEs are impressive for the price! The two semi-hollow Zach Myers SEs became my favorite guitars in my collection right out of the box.

    Current collection
    PRS SE Zach Myers Trampas Green
    PRS SE Zach Myers Vintage Sunburst
    PRS SE Zach Myers Royal Blue
    PRS SE Zach Myers Silver Sparkleburst


    Fender Aerodyne Stratocaster (the version with the pickguard, but swapped out to a mirror pickguard)
    Fender 60th Anniversary Diamond Stratocaster
    Fender JagStang (red)
    Ibanez GAX70
    Schecter C1 Shedevil (meh, not a fan of active pickups, but I like everything else about it)

    Hey everyone I'm a new member just privately purchased a 1993 Dark Blue CE-24. Was looking for this specific model with the alder body , arch top and small heel. None on Craigslist in my surrounding area or at a price I wanted online. So after a broader search I found this baby up in Belfast Maine. After a 800 mile round trip in 30+ hours no sleep some lobster rolls for lunch and pit stop at the & Allagash Brewery in Portland Maine I came home with this baby !! ( I named her Emily after my tasting tour guide at the Brewery). [​IMG]
