    Belated NGD:Tremonti SE Custom

    Got my new PRS SE Tremonti Custom in Whale Blue yesterday.

    Really good axe, solid as a freaking rock. Heavy as a LPC and my Schecter C7 Damien seven-banger. Already did the first upgrade on the strap locks, next will be the pickups with a McArty bass and either a BKP Painkiller or a Di Marzio Crunch Lab or Norton, unsure what way to go. Neck is really fast, its more like the neck on my EC and less like the neck on my LPS. Its the body of a SE SC245 with a trem and a diffrent neck profile in many areas, witch is all good! The fretboard is really dense, its either Ebony (not that likley) or Rosewood, it is also the darkest rosewood ive ever seen.

    Anyways, photo time:






    With its Single Cutaway Brothers (With thickness comparisons):



    SE/EC:


    SE/LPS:

    Congrats! Nice color!
    The Tremonti SE Custom is an awesome guitar.
    I have both the Tremonti SE Custom and the SE245.
    The SE245 is a great guitar but I sure wish it had the wide/thin neck like the Tremonti.

    The build quality of the guitar is outstanding. The natural binding is really nice, not may guitars this price point come with it!

    Now to decide on what way to go on the bridge pickup. After that, decide on what gear im getting rid of to fund a SE Custom-7 and a Mesa Mini Recto. Need to simplify my rig as its too complex.
