    So what is your synopsis of the that combo? I have a C-1 XXX that I wanted to do a pup swap on and I was torn between the JB/59 combo or trying out that BKP combo.

    I think the combo works very well, i would like to try it on a neck through or set-in neck guitar as i think it would sound even more awesome. Your guitar is heavy mahogany so it has a darkish tone so the aftermath wuold stit well in it. Also depends though what kinda sound you are after and what style you want to play.

    First post here from a new member. I myself have a tobacco burst SE Singlecut with trem that I adore. I actually sold off my US Gibson when I got the SE.

    I CAN'T TAKE ALL THESE GORGEOUS GUITARS!!!

    My horrible pics...

    I need so many more!

    I really want to make upgrades to my Singlecut but it is a very new platform for me. I would like to go with locking tuners, new nut, and to lockout the bridge. Not sure if I can handle any of those tasks myself.

    Maybe something like the Nailbomb would be better suited (in the bridge), not that the Aftermath cant handle that but its a very dry, midhumped pickup and also very tight. Though a lot of metal is tight some styles require a more organic sound-hence the nailbomb suggestion. The painkiller in the neck would be great but if you want a more buttery pickup in there then the Coldsweat would be good :) hope that helps?

    Btw modestglok26-nice gtr!

    Sounds like a great combo, I'll have to try it out. Thanks for the info!

    Figured I'd start my first post here with a pic.

    [​IMG]

    I regrettably sold the Tremonti a few months ago, but still have the 25th Cu24. I will be getting a 245 on Monday though :)


    Oh, if anyone has the amber quilt 25th Cu24 and wants to trade for my blue one, let me know ;)

    This is my first post here but I was pretty active on BAM and I'm on the other PRS forums.
    I don't have any of these SE's anymore and I regret having to part with them (particularly the SE EG and the Floyded Singlecut)

    All of them (except the SE EG) were modded with CTS 500k pots, Orange Drop caps, & Switchcraft toggles

    1. PRS SE Singlecut, black cherry. Modded with gold hardware and Wilkinson bridge.
    [​IMG]

    2. PRS SE EG, white. Modded with EMG SA's with mid boost control, Planet Waves locking tuners, scratch built pickguard (so I could add the mid boost pot and move the volume pot away from the bridge pup)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    3. PRS Santana SE, trans black. Modded with HFS & VB pups, push/pull tone pot for coil split, Phase II tuners, refinished headstock with PRS decal.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    4. PRS SE Singlecut, sunburst. Modded with Floyd Rose tremolo, added 2nd volume pot, push/pull pots for coil splits, nickel pup covers, and refinished headstock with PRS decal.

    SE is on the left, CE24 is on the right

    During the routing process:

    Right now my two main guitars are an '03 Singlecut goldtop with RP's and a '95 CE24 with a piezo. I'm really liking the ne Tremoti SE Custom that was just released in the UK. Maybe I can snag one soon.

    Your Singlecut tobacco burst is stunning!

    I have a Singlecut with trem that I'm wanting to mod but I'm not sure where to start. I think I really want to try the tremel-no out and new pups as well as some locking tuners but I'm still in the learning process as far as mods go. This site is a great place for some amazing ideas.

    I swapped out the pups on my Semi-Hollow body SE for a set of ToneRider AC2 Classics. Andrew Cunningham did a nice job with those. They sound great. They have the Alnico 2 magnets in them, so the sustain is a lot longer than the stronger Alnico's. I haven't split the coils yet. Thinking about that. I tried a test with them using alligator clips/wire to ground them together and see how that sounded. Pretty darn good. But, if I really want that Strat sound, I'll just pick up my Strat and play that for now.

    Thanks, I wish I still had it.

    I had a Tremol-No on that white SE EG. It worked very well.

    I'm a big fan of the Planet Waves locking tuners but you do have to drill a new, small hole for the attachment screw.

    I have had the Planet Waves put on 5 guitars now, and soon another one when it comes in.
    The Autotrim tuners rock, only downside is the redrilling.

    those SE's were donated by Xandao from O Rappa and are going for auction here in Brazil to raise funds for a association that helps poor kids study music.
    all of them were painted by Fabio Ema
