    PRS SE Zac Meyer dead 3 string

    You were correct- it was in the bridge. Luthier looked at the g slot on the bridge, filed it a bit, and everything is good. Funny how it didn't show up until I changed the string. Thanks

    PRS SE Zac Meyer dead 3 string

    I should clarify- at the bridge, not the nut

    PRS SE Zac Meyer dead 3 string

    Thanks to all for all the tips and recommendations. I took it to my local luthier. After playing it a bit, he loosened the string and filed the slot a bit and re-setted the string. Problem solved...and no charge. Thanks Paul, and I will use your set up recommendations as well, since I did fool...

    PRS SE Zac Meyer dead 3 string

    I used 000 steel wool The string is still dead after using a capo at the first fret, no string tree Sliding a sheet of paper when capoing at fret 1, paper is very tight at the fret 8; farther down the neck not as much resistance; putting a straight edge on the frets, I don't feel any rocking...

    PRS SE Zac Meyer dead 3 string

    No- 10-46 D'Addario. Thinking it was the nut slot was too low, I tried a piece of paper underneath the string at the nut. Didn't help.

    PRS SE Zac Meyer dead 3 string

    Thats what I'm thinking. I did swap the string, thinking it was faulty And of course, I messed with the truss rod, so I hope I didn't mess things up. Not really comfortable doing that. I could add a little something in the slot to see if that changes anything. Thanks!

    PRS SE Zac Meyer dead 3 string

    Hey guys, need some advice. I just picked up a PRS SE Zac Meyer ( don't know who he is) from a friend who doesn't play but had this guitar. Upgraded USA '57/08 pickups, CTS Pots and some other upgrades were already done to the guitar. The guitar played great, sounded great and the price was...

    68 Custom Princeton Reverb

    Could you update when you do the mods? I have the '68 Princeton as well . I use to love the amp because it sounded so much warmer to me than the '65 PRI. Then that became a problem. I just found that the bass control was unusable. I always left it at 2. My question is: I like the tone stack, but...

    Eric Johnson first Strat series vs Virginia

    I have the first generation EJ Strat (2006) and love the guitar. I've added a treble bleed circuit, and most recently a Callahan bridge, as the high E was getting to close to the edge of the fret board. The Callahan bridge made a big difference. Really like it ( although not cheap by bridge...

    why locking tuners on a tele?

    Quick string change, although split tuners with the hole down the center on my EJ Strat make changing strings a breeze. Love them as well. I can't stand the hole through the shaft that came on my tele- changed them out immediately to locking tuners.

    Praising the 68 custom Princeton Reverb

    I love this amp. I swapped out the Celestion cheap speaker with a Celestion Gold. Loved it at lower volumes, but it was pretty dark as I cranked the amp ( just gigged with it last week). So I put a Cajun Cajun speaker in now (75 watts vs 40 watts for the Celestion Gold). Gigging this week, and...

    Best amp you ever played ???

    I have a Dr Z Plus UltraLite with a Celestion Blue- overall the best amp I have played through. Bought it based on reviews and was not disappointed. Does it all for me, and with a J Rockett Blue Note pedal- I have the tone I love. I can never go into a store and test an amp out and get the...

    Your #1 Strat?

    I have a Suhr SSH with a roasted neck that, overall, is the best guitar I own. But...I have an '06 EJ Strat that is pure strat in my opinion. Love the action and tone. Been my go to for years and would never part with it.

    What is one amplifier you regret selling?

    '65 Twin Reverb. My first good amp. I bought the amp and a Mosrite Ventures model guitar for $400.00 off a guy that no longer played. Sold it for $500 in the early '80s and bought a Peavey Mace because it had chorus built in. The guy that bought it couldn't leave with it fast enough and told me...
