Go on then I'll play.
A nice family photo
My SE One 408. New turtle guard, Bournes pot, old tele knob, USA bridge, TonePros posts, Sergio-Approved winged tunas & a 408 pup.
Here is my Seafoam SE One with a Duncan Antiquity mini-hum (gibson pickup plate holding it in), Push-Push pot controls a "sweet switch", turtle guard, Gibson mint tunas, USA bridge and tacky sticker!
Here's a pic with a possible new mod.....
My SE Clint Lowery. Stock, for the moment. I don't care for the pots too much, serviceable though. Switch is noisy, will replace it with a Switchcraft eventually. Which one should I buy, the short shaft? Pickups for downtuned stuff are actually pretty good, I don't think right now I'll replace them. If I do, maybe a pair of SD Nazgul and Sentients perhaps. All in all, this thing is a beast, in a very good way.
She's Haruka ("cherry flower" in Japanese), my baby Girl (Tremonti Custom SE Thomann 60th Limited Edition). ♥
... And after pups & electronics replacement...
^Nice! What do the two toggles do, and what pickups and pots did you use?
Hey guys here is my 04 Tremonti SE. EMG 81/85's and as far as i'm aware standard other than that!
One thing i am interested in though is changing the nut as this one is a bit...empty. Firstly can anyone identify what is one there at the moment (i have included a picture) as it looks a bit crap.
Secondly i see you guys are suing US PRS nuts. Where would one locate one of these for purchase?
Well, I now have a PRS 59/09 in the bridge and a DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary in the neck. The 59/09 is really awsome, the middle positions are each one better than the last, but the 36th in the neck position, that I really liked in another guitar, sounds a little flat. Maybe it's for the cover? Anyway, I'll keep it for a while, and if I still won't be satisfied I'll swap it.
About the electronics, I used DiMarzio 500k custom pots, one master vol and one master tone; the switches are parallel/split/series for the neck and split/series for the bridge.
The SE Tremonti nut is just white plastic, instead of black plastic like the other SE guitars. I recommend John Mann's Guitar Vault for a PRS nut. I personally would go to my tech and have a bone nut installed.
Thanks Garrett I appreciate the help!
Nice to see another Thomann 60th version. I have the blue one, though yours kind of makes me wish I got the red.
Lol, the blue one is cool, too! How much did you pay for it? They sold the last ones for 545 €... an amazing burgain!!!! Great quality for an unbealivable price.
And I have to say there are cheap veneers that are aesthetically better than some AAAA top...
Yeah they were selling at stupid prices. I think i actually got the last blue one they had. I've only had it since late april this year. mine was 549 euro, it worked out as £410 including postage.
The standard Tremonti Custom was about £675 on the thomann site at the same time. even if I'd paid full price I'd of been over the moon, it really is beautiful & plays like a dream. The only changes I've made to mine are
Pickup rings swapped for cream ones off SE 245
Swapped Pickup positions 81 in neck 85 in bridge (Both positions sound smoother to me)
24 volt battery pack (2x12volt batteries in a holder that fits in the battery conpartment (off ebay)
Knobs swapped for clear speed knobs
A trem stopper to prevent upbends (I play with my resting the bridge)
Custom Maple TRC with a picture of death from the discworld series of books (Both tremonti's feature same picture for now0
Considering Ivoroid Tuner buttons?
Proud new PRS Owner
New to the Forum, and new to PRS. I finally found a deal good enough to get a PRS in my price range. 2014 SE Tremonti Custom.

They are actually fretboard decals from evilbay. cost me about £15 including postage.
