When I play mine there is a slight buzz when I play the 5th,4th and 6th string, but you can't heard it though the amp...

Wow, I was just told by Sweetwater there are no ZMs at PRS in Maryland.
There will not be a shipment in until the end of April.
Looks like I will not be getting mine from my local dealer for a long time.
The ones coming into Sweetwater are spoken for already, there is a long waiting list.

Are you using the stock gauge strings ?
Have you verified proper string height? You may need a truss adjustment.

I still use the strings that came with the guitar. I think the strings are d' addarios, because of the coloured ball ende.

Dane's ZM totally freakin' ROCKED! So much I had to put it down and walk away. Soooo many impure thoughts that my wallet started to twitch. :0

I just changed the strings and replaced them by d'addario 9-46, it stays in tune much better than with the stock ones :)

As promised a few days ago, here are a few pictures of my ZM. Figured I would get a few "before" pics done before it goes through some changes. I have an RS guitarworks harness, Sheptone Tributes and Gotoh vintage tuners on the way. I put 10's on it already. It'll get setup for them when I have the electronics work done. I already put on a "PRS" logo TRC.

My initial impressions:
  1. Playability - This is a players guitar (at least this player.) I love the satin/sanded neck. It's actually made me forget the McRosie I sold last year. :eek: I love the wide fat neck, short scale and 10" radius. It plays great and at the end of the day that counts for a lot in my book.
  2. Sound/Tone - I don't care for the 245 pickups. They are just too hot for my taste (hence the Sheptones coming.) I am more of a classic rock/blues player and I'd prefer something more PAF like. The 245 pickups are what they are - they're just not me. I do love the slight rounding of attack you get with a semi-hollow body. I think the PAF's will help bring that out a little more once installed.
  3. Finish/Aesthetics - I was a little apprehensive about it at first, but the Trampas Green and Reverse Zebra pickup combo is really growing on me. I don't think the top on mine is as nice as a few others I have seen in this thread. There are a few issues with the finish of the guitar that wouldn't pass QC out of Maryland, I believe. There's a couple of spots around the heel of the neck and on the headstock. Nothing major mind you, but they are there. However, I don't really care because of points 1 and 2 above.


That's it for now. I'll provide an update when the new pups and tuners are in.

I put 10-52 strings on my ZM and it handles it perfectly. Can't get enough of this guitar.

Man I wish Sweetwater would get that order in already. The wait sucks! I shouldn't complain, unless things change they ought to have it in next week, so hopefully within the next week and a half or so I'll finally have one of these in my hands!

Yeah, I am one of those waiting on my Sweetwater ZM too. After a lifetime of Gibsons I am going to own my first PRS!
