    SE tuner button replacements

    Hi all!

    Newbie here, and my first post! I recently picked up a black Soapbar II. I love the fat chunky neck on it. Only the neck pup was original. The guy had a DiMarzio Super Distortion P90 in the bridge pos. He had a vintage wound set from Anonymous Guitar in FL, so I swapped out the DiMarzio for the bridge vintage wound. I replaced the covers with cream ones and want the tuner buttons to match, kinda like a black McCarty P90 I saw online somewhere.

    I saw some overseas vendors on eBay selling some nice looking ivory ones, but I don't know if they'll fit or not. Are the SE tuners equivalent to Gotohs? There's a vendor that says his buttons fit Gotohs and not Grovers.

    Any help is extremely appreciated! Thanks!

    I just put grover 406c 's on my se. Great tuners and come in black and silver. Depending on what tuners they are, a lot of guys are replacing the keys on the se zm model. That's more of a kluson style tuner

    The Grovers are great! I have a set on both my SE's and have zero complaints. The ones on my Santana have ebony buttons, but they were there when I bought it, so I'm not sure where you'd be able to get them.

    WEDGE - DiMarzio makes a Super Distortion P90. The output/tone is very equivalent to the full humbucker version. If that's your bag, then I highly suggest you check one out. :-)

    Are there any Admins or hardcore PRS fanatics here in the forum that may be able to help answer my question? Thought for sure I would find my answer here amongst the PRS die-hards. Maybe I should just call PRS and see what they say.

    "Schaller" replacement buttons from Stew Mac should fit standard SE tuners.

    Sleary - sorry if my post read as rude, wasn't meant that at all - apologies. I rarely join forums and/or post comments on pages, YouTube, etc because of how things are interpreted by the reader. I just wanted some help is all. The guitar is your standard issue PRS SE Soapbar II headstock all stock/factory. Looks like ChrisCs22 was able to point me in the right direction. Thanks, everyone.

    ChrisCs22 - did you use the original button screws, or did you use the ones that came with the buttons from StewMac? Thanks!
