I get mine out about every weekend plus a few others.
It performed great yesterday on rehearsal. Everyone was astonished with how the guitar looked. It really is a beautiful axe.
At loud rehearsal volume I found it a bit noisier than my Santana (wich is quite silent)... but thats maybe because the bridge pu is closer to strings.. I may have to lower it a bit.
Very confused with the knob disposal!!!! why in hell are this not in the same configuration than a LP? I guess I´ll see if I can get used to it or I will re do the wiring.
after 3 hours of standing rehearsal I was in great shape... very comfy guitar and the weigh is just perfect for me ( i don like heavy axes)... much more comfortable than a LP for playing (weight wise and ergonomically)... i really like the dunlop strap i bough for the ZM... is wider than my satriani´s and very comfortable... a little stiffness is the only bad thing about it.
I´m loving the guitar... but wth is wrong with the bridge studs? I´ve barely played the guitar and have been VERY careful to clean it after playing... the upper stud (the one you rest your palm on) has lost its bright and I think it will rust bad in the near future...
I´ve used my traditional metal cleaner (gibson) and a gorgomyte cloth with zero improvement... the thing is ruined
I didn't think these are out already !!!
Can you tell us a little bit about the mods you did? I am especially interested in your tuners. I'm not a fan of the non-locking or the vintage style tuners. What model did you go with and did you have to change the diameter of the post holes or just tap new holes for the small screws that hold the tuners down so they don't twist?
The mods are:
Phase II tuners, got them from UK ebay. Yes I had to take a drill to the headstock and the screw holes are in different positions.
Bareknuckle Mississippi P90's and black pup rings.
Tuner knobs and control knobs from Crazy Parts in Germany (both ebony and bird inlay on the control knobs)
Single Vol and single push/pull tone pots. The push/pull reverses the wiring to the treble pickup which gives a different sound when both pick-ups are on together (much thinner but useable)
Straploks (of course)
Walnut veneer for the headstock from a local UK supplier (£2.5), this was oiled and waxed using the same oil Mesa Boogie used to use on their hardwood cabinets.
Trust rod cover image is the original Zach Myers logo over a photo of the body (to match the colour): this was printed and stuck on a couple of Starbucks loyalty cards.
I still have to deal with the holes left by the second set of controls, not sure exactly what to do with them
Private stock of SE's that makes since at that price!!!!Wow. Can you believe this an eBay? $1275??? http://www.ebay.com/itm/PRS-Zach-My...r-/161347980401?pt=Guitar&hash=item259116cc71
