Yeah, if it were the guitar it would probably be a dud, and not inherent to the series.
Re the box: I'm coming to realize that... Cleared out a lot of stuff I thought I'd never need in the process of moving. Ain't that just typical? :-)
Yeah, the electronics - or just a basic...
See original post ;-) TL;DR: also tried amp sim in computer, and on ipad.
You, sir, have an excellent memory :-)
Yeah - that might be where it is headed. Just want to troubleshoot some myself first. Also because I JUST threw out the box it came in, making packaging for...
I can feel that the truss rod is under tension when adjusting it, so I don't think that's the culprit. And yeah, something electronic seems to be the last possibility. Or something rattling...
That was one of my first thoughts.
I've tried having the string riding on top of the nut (not in the groove). This produced the same result - I would expect the sound to at least change somewhat if...
So, taking the advice I saw somewhere on the internet, I threw on a WOUND g string. That helped a lot - it's still there, but no more noticeable than on adjacent the B and D strings. But I...
I understand - so am I :-)
If nothing else works, I will try it - but hoping for less invasive fixes/troubleshooting in the meantime. Thanks for the suggestion in any case
No idea - but wouldn't that affect the high e string as well?
I'd try it if it were a "normal" PRS, but it's a bit of an operation on the Brent Mason due to the pickguard and the middle pickup...
I'm posting this numerous places in the hopes of somebody being able to help.
I’ve been playing mostly rhythm guitar the time I’ve had it, but lately when playing some lead-type stuff I’ve...
It has to be said that turning down the tone knob (5-6-7) and sometimes also the volume knob (7-8) helps a good deal. But still not ideal, maybe. That's why I have other guitars too :-)
The only thing I find it doesn't do very well is higher gain on the bridge pickup for rhythm playing. In my own experience, of course.
I got one :-)
First of all, what kind of music do you usually play, which amp(s) do you have, what kinds of tones do you like etc?
This is srota interesting - take a gander at the middle pickup cavity - I don't think a 305 pup would fit there. New PRS singlecoil in the making?
Man, that is a STUNNER!! :-)
That gorgeous top puts me in mind of somrthing with fire... like a wall of fire.. Or embers... Or something. I'd go with something fire-themed......
Basically, I think they should solve it to your satisfaction.
Sucks. Can you post a picture so we can see what we're giving advice about?
I can see why you wouldn't want the money back due to the exchange rate, having to shell out an extra 20% to get a new...
A clarification: I do believe that the SEs are subject to QC at PRS ONLY IF they are to be sold in US.
(see how I managed to cram 4 abbreviations into that single short sentence?)
I'd look at something like this:
Thick carbon traces, no overly fancy tone pot etc etc (which I think is perfectly...
Kemper profiling amplifier and a powered FRFR speaker, maybe?
Or maybe the kemper variant with built-in power amp and a regular cab?
(Although none of these are in combo format, obviously)
Will this have the regular pointy PRS headstock or something else?
...And if you don't have foam lying around, paper towel works just fine as well :-)
It's funny - both the PRS I have now and the one before it had the same thing with the trem springs - and both of them very specifically excited by the open B-string (hm... looking at that sentence I...
It sounds like the guitar is more or less in tune with itself, is that right?
Have you tried just playing it for maybe 5-10 minutes, and THEN checking the tuning? I find that usually that levels...
