    PRS Tuner conversion

    Original PRS Tuners can be converted into Phase II tuners and do not require any additional holes to be drilled in the head stock.

    Shawn,

    As you were posting this, were you chuckling as you imagined all of those eyeballs popping out?

    LOL Lloyd, you got me.

    Scotty B from the PTC devised a way to reconstruct your original shared D & G tuners using a set of Phase II shafts and gears. This allows you to keep the same tuner footprint on your older PRS guitar without drilling new holes, but also offers the performance and function of the Phase II tuners. Currently these tuners are only available through the PTC

    When you were telling me the story of Scotty figuring this out your excitment was off the charts - such a good mod!

    I don't like. Now there will be less of the greatest invention ever devised, but if you could come up with a way to put wings on phase III tuners........

    I welcomed the last root canal I had so you might be on to something.

    The wings wouldn't even have to be functional, but everyone would have to get the perfect Christmas tree shape when they string up.

    No, it's not just you, the audio does sound poorly due to the castration of the sacred winged tuners. The silent howls of desecrated shared D&G tuners will forever haunt their lives.

    There isn't any audio to speak of. I wanted to remain silent and just let the images speak for themselves. The only noise you hear are folks in the background having a conversation.
