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!
No worries man- you wont be dissapointed!
Figured I'd start my first post here with a pic.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
Here's my baby in action, "Maximus".
she's a beaut
A little Sunday SE action... picked up the matching cab to the 30 head last weekend to round out the rig!
Want to trade for the blue one from that year? :D
A really bad pic of a really decent guitar --
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
