    Beauty! I just got mine 2 days ago and i'm loving it right out the box. Does your push/pull tone knob is looser than the volume knob? I was told at the store that this is common for push/pulls and contact support at PRS told me this as well. I just wanted to hear it from another actual owner. I'm actually not getting that pinging issue but i'm going to look out for it. I had to lower the action a bit, and i might even go a little lower cuz i'm still not getting any buzz. Any recommendations on string height?

    This is just like my SEs : Holcomb and CU24. I think it's true of all SEs.

    Truss rod tweaks are your friend?

    It comes tuned to drop C with 10-52s. I'd go to at least 11s, + truss rod adjustment (or just have it professionally set up). My shop tuned mine to standard (E-E) and set it up for me (with the extant 10-52s), so depending where you bought it, take it back and have them do it. Might cost you a new set of strings, but if they're not willing (or if you bought it online), then take it to your local tech.

    I adjust the neck to .010 at 8th fret And the string heigth too due to prs instructions but seems a little high to me , specially the high ones!!
    If I play on the lower strings the highs make string noises, like I'm playing without any string muting with my hands, like a child learning to play!!
