I scored a 2007 SE Tremonti that is in good condition and already has a Tusq nut. I threw in today a 59/09 squabbin in the bridge and a covered McCarty neck pup to give it the Tremonti look. I plan on installing a couple of USA PRS volume pots to replace the STIFF stock ones.

Anything else to help bring it up to snuff? Maybe a bridge or tuners? What brand lockers fit on the SE? Does the USA bridge fit right on, do I need studs also?

I figure this is a killer beater guitar and want it to play as good a sit can so I welcome any suggestions.
