Hi everyone, Well I finally picked up my first PRS, it isn’t US made, is SE model but it’s also Korean made So far I really really love it and have no complaints at all. I am honestly surprised at the quality and I can’t imagine how great the cores must be, they must be like the Fort Knox of guitars lol. Maybe one day I’ll pick one up. I thought maybe it was best to start with SE and if I ever get the wiggle to pick up a Core I’ll do so and maybe I’ll be just fine with the model. Knowing how nice this guitar is I find it impossible to be better with the Core’s but I know without a doubt they must be for the price, I’m sure. Anyways I do many pull the trigger on a couple updates or mods. I have the funds, no issue and just wanted to ask some advice and opinions please. - I plan to go with a updated bridge with the MannMade 2040, I know it’s two piece but both pieces are brace but not solid like the 2000NOS. I’m god with the 2040 but anyways I can’t decide between Nickel or Nickel Hybrid Gold. I think the Nickel Hybrid Gold would look sweet but want to ask others what they think. Nickel or Nickel Hybrud Gold? - I plan to change the SE knobs (clear) to the US Black/Clear. You like? - I plan to change the nut out for the US nut, Wide-Fat/Thin correct? - Should I change/upgrade the pots and three way blade for better quality like PRS Core or Emerson? - Lastly I’m gonna hold off on pickups till the summer to get a feel for what my ears feel like I’m missing and need. Maybe I will find these pickups perfect and if not I’ll know 6 months from now. Otherwise I’m updating the bridge and nut for better sustain and more. The knobs are cosmetic only. Again money not an issue so no worries here. Thoughts on bridge color option, knobs and more. Thanks. Pics below.
