I really like Myles Kennedy's style but he doesn't have a signature guitar.Yet.
In order these are my influences
1.Randy Rhoads
2.Myles Kennedy
3.Slash
4.Jimmy Page
5.Troy Stetina
6.Mark Tremonti
7.John Mayer
8.John Frusciante
9.David Gilmour
10.Derek Trucks
Anyways,I'm thinking about getting an SE tremonti,Fredrik Akersson or SE 245 and putting U.S Parts on it.Is this Possible?Things like the pickup rings,tone pots,knobs and tuners.I like Myles Kennedy's tone alot and I want to put in the pair of pickups he uses in most of his electrics.I don't know which Seymour Duncan custom custom's they are.

There are drop in replacement tuners you can get, though someone else will have to chime in on the specifics.

Pots & Knobs. If you go with replacement CTS pots then you may need to widen the holes with a reamer. Not a hard job... Just don't use a drill!!! You'll need to replace the knobs.

Shouldn't have any issues with replacement pups. I specced my pups with short legs though it looked like long legged pups would fit (Bernie Marsden).

A US PRS bridge will fit but the studs won't. You'd either need to keep the studs or replace them with something like the metric Tonepros locking studs.

This site has what pickups he has in which guitars, it's a little out of date and doesn't list the newer guitars but I think it covers the ones you trying to follow behind. Also I can't be sure but I think years ago I either read or saw a vid where said he put tone pros bridges on all his guitars.
