    NGD - Paul Reed Smith Tremonti

    So I actually picked this bad boy up a few weeks ago, but when I got it it was much more beat up than the store had initially explained. While this bummed me out, I knew Shawn and the PTC guys could fix it. Since its a older model I decided I wanted to keep it and have the work done. So I shipped it to PTC and just got it back. I must say, they knocked it out of the parkk.


    Its a 2007 Mark Tremonti signature 10 top. They installed a new set of Tremonti pickups. They also replaced a bad pot, cleaned everything up, set it up and shipped it factory tuned to B for me.

    This is my 2nd Tremonti. I love this model - its everything I love about the SCT and everything I'd change about it. Really digging the MOP inlays on the 07 model too.

    Ill update the thread with better photos when I get a chance but I'm running around all weekend and wanted to get it up before i forget. Any marks or scuffs you see are merely dust/fuzzies from the case and wrapping.

    Again - thanks to Shawn, Skitchy and PTC for turning what I thought was a mistake purchase to a guitar thats moved to the front of my pack. I love it!

    I'm glad it arrived safe and sound during this crazy shipping season.

    I cant thank you enough - you turned this guitar into a "oh crap, I hope I didn't buy something that I'll regret" all the way to a "Well...I think I found a new #1".

    Everything about it is flawless now and is because of you and the PTC guys. You rock as always!!!!!

    This came from a GC in Maryland and I must say, I am absolutely DUMBFOUNDED by how poorly they handled this sale and if PTC wasn't as good at what they do, I would have sent the guitar back.

    Thanks! I have them but they honestly aren't worth posting - basically the guitar had creme rings, covered McCarty pickups, black speed knobs and silver tuner buttons. I had PTC replace all of those items as well as the new pickup set.

    No its not - the standard Tremonti set still has the covered neck pickup.

    Ha thanks man! I think once the 7 string is finished I'm going to have to although I have no idea how to photograph that many guitars in one shot.

    Hey Markie - can I borrow your couch?
