    Finally got rid of my Ibanez 7 string, Ive came to the realisation im not a 7 string player now. Tried the SE Holcomb 7 and i just for the love of me can't play a 7 string. But i have my SE Mushock, that will do for the low stuff.

    However, after trying a Jackson SL2Q MAH in Winterstorm, and looking at a Fender FSR Telecaster HH and a couple of Charvels, however came back to the first 6 string i tried, the SE Custom 24. It played well, felt well made (as i know with my PRS experience from the the past 11 years) and i knew it would sound good. Its balance is bang on, and with a 5th trem string and a new set of strings as its gone straight to Drop B means its going to be playing the heavy stuff.

    I have mod plans for it, i have a McCarty Bass and a Seymour Duncan Pegasus for it as it will be doing split duties for Drop B and C Standard. All i need is to get the PRS Clear Knobs, USA 5 way switch, jack and pots and its pretty much done, maybe a change in saddles and tuners to Gotoh locking ones.

    The only bad thing is the Korean trem arm is as loose as a goose, and will have to look for a new trem arm as well.

    Now, pics right?

    Nice score!

    There’s a tiny set screw in the back of the bridge that will tighten up the Trem arm.

    That's the most effusive I've seen you for a blue guitar.

    That is purty and indeed that set screw on the trem arm bushing should get you all set.

    The new bluish birds look great with that color!

    Thanks all, i forgot the screw on the back, sorted now.

    Been playing it a wee bit there, it is a really nice weight, great balance, comfy neck, a real players guitar. That extra length in the next is brilliant, a great hybrid between a 245 and a Fender length, the 250 length is a really under used, under appreciated length. Im still doing my changes, hardware will be locked in;

    Black PRS USA Pickup Rings
    Clear PRS USA Lampshade Knobs
    Gotoh SG381 Traditional Magnum Locking Tuners 3 x 3

    The pickups are now unsure about, Im not sure if a set of EMGs or a set of Fishman Fluence may be better than the Pegasus/McMarty Bass would be ideal as i already have them. It's just how to wire the Seymour Duncan into the PRS 5 way switch diagram?

    Bravo to the PRS SE team.
