    I still want to find a black Tremonti SE at the right price, and fill the neck pickup route and re-route for a standard Strat single-coil. Then refinish (black) add a Mannmade bridge.

    I love the weight, balance, and feel of that model, but the pickups don’t work for me, and I’ve never been a big fan of a humbucker in the neck spot.

    I solve that particular problem by lowering the pickup as low as it goes and raising the screw poles high and in a staggered Strat pattern. Makes the cleans so much better, a reversible mod, and if I want to split out both bobbins I can get Strat Quack this way too. I have an SE with a push/pull tone pot that down is single neck bobbin and up is both bobbins in parallel. Another SE I only wired the neck screw pole bobbin and then put the screws in a Strat stagger. But the lowering and pole adjustments on a regular non-modded humbucker do a lot to give a good single coil tone.

    You can always get a humbucker to single coil trim ring rather than all the body work.

    My most recent PRS acquisition was this one that started with a broken neck at the body (attached but wobbly) and Halloween machete hacks after being gigged for ten years. I steamed off the neck, made repairs, and cleaned it all up. This was built within the first eighteen months that PRS started using the Korean factory.

    Now it looks like this. The neck pickup is wired with the screw bobbin only and the poles are set in a classic Strat stagger pattern. There are more detailed pictures in the linked thread, including less blurry images. But here it shows the latest black trim rings and amber hat style knobs with a brass switch tip.

    These are the other ones. The middle blue guitar was built in PRS's original factory before they moved to the current location. Early 1990s build.

    Here are mine. I love the necks—for me that’s the number one consideration for how much I pick up one guitar over another.

    The red Soapbar has Kinman noiseless P90s, 5- way switching, bass rolloff and tone control bypass. The black EG has series/parallel and phase reversal options with the standard pickups.

    Zach Myers SE on the left and a CE-24 on the right:

    The Myers has new locking tuners, amber bell knobs (I just didn’t care for the clear knobs), and raw nickel pickup covers. This one was an absolute steal. It was used with no sign of ever having been played, and it plays and sounds great. To me, it feels like a much more expensive guitar.

    The CE has had the rotary switch replaced with a 3-way switch with a push/pull tone knob and raw nickel pickup covers.

    If you mean this one, it was a limited model, KL380. A Custom 22 Soapbar made of korina. They made 3 different models at the time consisting of 100 pieces each. I was fortunate to land one like this. KL380-1.jpg

    I love korina.
    My korina McCarty is snappy and super lively.
    I have a bunch of other korina guitars but the McCarty is my only korina PRS.

    It’s unique and familiar at the same time.

    Man I liked, unliked and liked it again, I like that guitar so much.

    I'm in. First is a Custom 22 Artist with Rosewood neck and the second is a Private Stock McCarty Single Cut. That's the one that made me quit buying more guitars. Seriously, its been 3 years since I bought a new guitar although I'd take gitold's Reclaimed CE24 in a heartbeat.

    That McCarty is beautiful! Me buying my Bernie was basically me wanting that guitar but not having the cash to drop! Does it have the 58/15 pickups?

    Thanks! This one has the 58/08 pickups. Yeah I was looking for a Bernie at the time and saw a video of him playing this model. A few weeks later I saw this on a yellow tag sale at Sweetwater and couldn't resist. It was my best ever impulse purchase.

    Thanks for not including the tired "dentist" cliche!
