Does anyone happen to have a black cap off 3 way toggle switch? PRS store has them, but you get whatever color they send. Have a cream one now and need a black one.
Those are forth the us ones which I though were different.
Where do you guys order these pre-slotted PRS US nuts or TUSQ ones? How much should I expect to pay? I've watched some videos on YouTube on how to replace a nut. I'm pretty handy and I enjoy doing my mods/work on my guitars myself ...makes me feel like I'm more a part of the guitar and vice/versa, so I want to try replacing the nut myself.
I don't have files, though, so you're sure I can get one pre-slotted for my PRS SE Custom 24? Can I get one slotted for 10's? The factory nut is slotted for 9's, and that is the problem I have with it.
My low E string is like sticking out of the nut - it's that tight. And I can't even look at the trem arm before the guitar goes out of tune. I don't know ...I was expecting more out of this guitar. I was hoping if I modify this nut for 10's it would stay in tune and I could be happy with it lol
is it a 10-52 gauge or 10-46? I'd be surprised if it were the latter, mine fits in the nut snugly. you could use the fatter gauges for a couple months and after it wears down the nut wider, it'll fit nicely. the stock nut's materials aren't too stiff and solid so i'd say you could try it that way. could someone chime in on this? I'm not sure if it's an appropriate way to do so :/
No they are 10-46. When I get home I can snap a pic of it and post it for you. I'm going to call Guitar Center and see how much their luthier would charge to just file the slots out to 10's for me.
I'm thinking of swapping out the cream colored pickup mounting rings on my SE Custom 24 (zebra HFS?) for black ones. Can someone give me a link? Thanks! By the way are these standard so any humbucker mounting ring set would work?
if you mean the links to black pickup mounting rings, there are plenty of retailers out there, most popular choice would be GC, Musician's Friend and Allparts.
if you're talking about links to pics of how it'll look like:
i'm only judging from your display pic that your guitar's in cherry sunburst, so I looked up for the sunburst ones, which are closest to that colour :/
"if you mean the links to black pickup mounting rings, there are plenty of retailers out there, most popular choice would be GC, Musician's Friend and Allparts."
It looks like they are a standard size so I'll probably be able to get them off the shelf at my local GC, thanks.
Here's a pic of my nut showing how the 10's are too big:
The other strings fit down in the nut grooves, but they are tight or something because if I even think of using the trem arm, they go out of tune. I was looking into nut files, but it looks like I'd end up spending around $70 on set. I called Guitar Center and one other Luthier I know and they want around $65 for this!!???
I really want to do it myself, but I don't feel comfortable doing it with like sandpaper or something. I guess I'd have to shell out the money for the files because I'm not giving a Luthier that kind of money for what should be an extremely easy job for them.
