    Pulled the trigger on a Tremonti AP :)

    Hi all, new member here. Been lurking and reading a bit the past few weeks and figured it was time to post since I just placed an order for a Tremonti Artist Package!

    I've had two or three PRS's over the years and all of them were great guitars but I always wished that I could get one with an ebony fretboard without having to go Private Stock. When I found out recently that it was now available as part of the AP, I had to do it.

    My specs are pretty simple...

    Tremonti Model
    Ebony Fretboard
    Contour Charcoal Burst
    Black knobs/pickup rings/toggle
    Adjustable stoptail bridge
    Nickel hardware.

    Pretty stoked and can't wait to get this. Gonna be a long wait haha. I will have to live vicariously through others "NGD" posts for the foreseeable future

    Sounds very cool indeed! As a guy who's waited for Artist Packs in the past, yeah, the waiting is the hardest part!

    I just got a Tremonti AP with and ebony board this week as well. I have had the rosewood Tremonti in the past but the ebony blew me out of the water when I played it. You wont regret.

    Congrats on your adjustable stoptail bridge Tremonti order! The wait is the hardest part, but when it eventually arrives it will be a thing beauty. I love mine. \m/

    Sounds like an amazing guitar! I hope you have something to play in the interval. I'm going on 5 months now since my order.

    Come to think of it, I think PRS does this on purpose! Reels you in and makes you wait. Its been so painful that I've bought a Private Stock in the interval!!

    Haha, yeah.. I have a few guitars to play in the meantime. My father also plays, and has a nice LP I tend to try and sneak away from his place every now and then.

    Congrats, and welcome to Club Tremonti!

    Now we just have to get you to graduate to one with a trem!

    LOL, thanks!

    I actually own one right now with a trem. It's a really nice guitar but I have never ever been one for trems. I know I can block it and yadda yadda, but if I am ordering one to my specs, no sense in having one .

    Congrats on the order, and welcome aboard! I've always loved ebony boards, too. I bet it's a good compliment to the Tremonti.

    I don't use a trem all that much - at least, I don't think I do, definitely not much dive-bombing - but when I pick up a stop tail, I always find myself reaching for the bar. If I have the trem, a lot of times I seem to ignore it. Go figure.

    Now that I have had mine for a month or so, one thing I have noticed is that the tremonti bridge pickup might be kind of bright for the ebony board. Im thinking of switching it to a \m/ pickup. Other than that, I am still loving mine. I hope you get yours soon.

    Yeah? Interesting. What kind of rig are you playing it through?
    I will have to see once mine arrives. Hopefully sooner rather than later .
