We can carve the neck to have the wide thin feel, but it won't be a true "wide thin" because as John stated, we can't add wood where it doesn't exist (at the nut).
We don't "re-neck guitars". When we started the PTC, Paul didn't want to offer replacement necks or bodies.

Shawn, as coincidence would have it......... I have a package arriving for you today!!!
I am a PTC heavy user. From a new set of tuners to a new finish and reshape a neck, I just love to have the guys from PRS to do it. And I am doing that from Brazil. Yeah, some people are worried or think it's complicated to ship a guitar to do this kind of service. Well, international shipping in a country (Brazil) with so many bureaucracy is a pain and takes time and I think I my PRS guitars deserve that kind of treatment.
Hail to the Hot Rod kings or the PRS Special Forces Team, as I prefer to call them. Huge fan here
I have sent 2 guitars to the PTC for re frets and small repairs. The PTC is untouchable with their level of service, craftsmanship and everything involved with the work being done. I have another Tremonti that's going to need a re fret soon! I call the guys at PTC the Top Guns at PRS...because they are , another huge fan here too!

Dig the new page, Shawn! I've had the PTC work on several of my guitars and they all come back looking wonderful!
With regard to the "Signature Switching" option, does that mean they add the little circular "cups" to the top like they come stock, or are the switches just going to sit flush against the top? I know they would look much nicer (and closer to stock) with the little cutouts underneath, but I could see that being a PITA for the PTC folks since that then requires some finish touch-up too, so I'm guessing it's probably the latter right?
Either way, good stuff! I'm digging the addition of the "add Floyd Rose" option specifically calling out that you guys offer that service now since that's still one thing I've been going back and forth on for a while, so it's nice to see the prices listed finally! Maybe I'll grab a cheap CE-24 someday and send her in for the OFR upgrade (as well as some other fun stuff, I'm sure... hehehe...) as that's still something I'm lacking right now.
Thanks for all the compliments folks. The PTC are a talented, creative and dedicated bunch of guys!
Matt, we can add the divots to the sig switching or surface mount the toggles, it's your choice. If the divots are added, a total refin is in order.
I just noticed some of the items that are priced at the bottom of the page. Cool!
I could use some clarification as to the meaning of the following line in terms of "parts & labor" or just "labor" only etc.

Another PTC fan here. The work they do is superb. I had a setup done and some other tweaks, and was absolutely floored by how fantastic the guitar turned out.
Hail the PTC!
If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

Great work on the site. Echo the same sentiment. PTC is worth every penny.
I was thinking of getting a set of \m/s for my Tremonti and putting them in myself - until I saw this thread.
Now I'm thinking \m/s with sig switching...
