Over spend on an SE? Lol, check out mine!!

Will changing the bridge post wells make a resonance, sustain, or tone improvement?

This is the one I used.


Reliable retailer as well.

You probably don't want Pattern Regular though (or maybe you do). That's the slightly narrower one.

Wider one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/324648161786?hash=item4b9689d1fa:g:JugAAOSwPDNg8Rsy


I personally would have a good local luthier cut a custom bone nut. Unless specs have changed, using a core nut on an SE would leave a gap between it and the truss rod cover.

Ooooo! I love the top! Yup! SE 245s are killer!
Thanks, this one is a beauty :)

Coupled with my one-off Well-Hung Shock & Awe leather strap it's my favourite guitar.

Thanks Garrett for keeping me right.

My eBay history showed these purchased in Dec ‘20, they may have been for something else entirely. Oops, sorry @NazgulUK.

Again, the combination of tuners/nut/brass posts did all make a positive change.
