sample, if i'm going to get a Santana SE, tapos may makakakilala, baka biglang mag request eh wala sa lineup ng band, something like that, same reason for not liking ibbys, not to see what we are capable of as a guitarist/ as a band (haha naks parang bigatin)  :lol:

and i have no idea who's Paul Allender, after siguro ng post ko dito magsearch na ko hehe :lol:

Paul plays guitar for Cradle of Filth.  So I would take it that the guitar is geared toward those modern death metal tones.

how's the sound?
Title: Re: The PRS Thread...
Post by: pitongjerome on August 30, 2009, 02:29:29 PM
for me, the regularly placed steves special is brighter, thinner, not that its not good, i just love the reverse, it is perfect for leads and is less trebly but fatter. its not in any way muddy, i love it.
paf joe... love the sound. so smooth for lead playing. for more aggressive leads i use bridge and for smooth satch leads, ofcourse, paf joe..

for clean settings, i just use both pickups.. well, generally, whatever pickups im using, i dont use the bridge pickup. i use neck for warmer and fatter tone, or combination of bridge and neck. quacky sound which i love.

naaalala mo ba yung color ng lead wires? i think one is yellow and the other is white.. not sure which though..

kung meron ka multi-meter, check mo DC resistance ng pups.. yung neck should be around 9K.. yung bridge 10k..

last bet kung wala na multi-meter..
using a ruler, measure the distance from the center of the 1st pole pice to the center of the 6th pole pice.. dapat mas mahaba yung sa bridge, around 53mm.. tapos yung sa neck around 50mm lang.. f-spaced kasi stock bridge pup niyan..

hope this helped.  :-D

Siao!  Musta na?  Long time, no see ha!  Hope you're doing well bro.

yup.. pero may EG din na S-S-S ang configuration.. :)

I didn't know that the SE EGs came in S-S-S config!  The original EGs that came out 15 years ago did have an all single-coil config and a bolt-on neck.  Unfortunately, it has been discontinued na.  I hope JB brings in those S-S-S config here soon!

Siao!  Musta na?  Long time, no see ha!  Hope you're doing well bro.

I didn't know that the SE EGs came in S-S-S config!  The original EGs that came out 15 years ago did have an all single-coil config and a bolt-on neck.  Unfortunately, it has been discontinued na.  I hope JB brings in those S-S-S config here soon!

O.T. ok lang ako bro...
Jojo... musta?...

question... F-Spaced ba ang kailangan sa bridge ng SE-EG?

not sure kung f-spaced sir.. pero you can measure it manually.. pag ang measurement mula sa center ng 1st pole piece hanggang sa center ng 6th pole piece ay around 53mm, then yes, f-spaced po siya.. :) normally sa mga may trem sa instruments f-spaced.. although hindi naman masyadong pansin ang difference pag naka regular spaced pups ka..  :-)

I'm not sure din, Siao pero kung pareho sukat niyan with the Custom, F-spaced yan.  Measure mo e string to e string mo.  If it's 2 or more inches, F-spaced (or Trembuckers for SD fans  :-D) yan.  If less than 2 sya, regular spaced.  But based on other trem-equipped SE models I've seen, it looks like SEs are F-spaced..

here's the finished product of again another blood and sweat customization.. i was sent a pair of chrome mounting rings which i grinded down to be able to make a staggered configuration.. not perfect but i got the job done myself.. it was my first time using a grinder, too.. i removed the "retrotron" pup cover of the Bridge since it was hindering me from raising it too much.. it gets stuck on the sides of the mounting ring.. now it's a hybrid of jimmy page.. covered neck and open bridge but with chrome rings.. here's some pics.. hope you like it.. haha..

my pimped 2007 PRS SE Standard in Vintage mahogany finish..

haven't tried a USA PRS.. probably sir bryan can answer that.. however, the SEs are really nice guitars for the price.. yung epiphone at gibson.. hands down naman na no match ang epi sa gibby.. lalo na at MIC na mga epi.. pero i know gibbys have quality control issues ngayon.. siguro if there was an epi that could be at par with some gibby guitars, yun yung elitist line nila which is already discontinued, MIJ yun..

back to your question.. maganda talaga mga USA PRS.. from craftsmanship to electronics and pickups.. pero lahat naman nun subjective.. it depends still on your taste.. pwedeng mas ok sayo feel ng SE kesa USA..  :-)

I had the chance to try out some SE Customs, and they're really different from my CU22. Thing is, the SEs have their own combination of woods and electronics different from US-made models, such that a direct comparison is not really viable. I do observe that the CU22 has a way more refined sound compared to any of the SE models. Big diff also in craftsmanship, materials, electronics and hardware, though at the price point, it better be. The absolute standout is the SE Soapbar, with its sweet, midrange-y tone. I'd gig with that guitar with confidence any day.

Nice info, your right that it's not fair to compare them when they aren't really alike. Thanks mate!

Post by: r_chino18 on September 27, 2009, 09:55:26 PM
ano ba material ng nut ng mga se's?

i asked that sa PRS customer support via email matagal na.. common notion ng mga tao, pag black ang nut ay graphite na agad.. pero in the case of PRS SEs, hindi.. sad to say pero it's only black plastic..
Title: Re: The PRS Thread...
Post by: curiousdcat on September 27, 2009, 10:05:31 PM
It definitely isn't based on the specs of the "unobtainiums" from the US models.  Check out any official literature from PRS about the SE's nut and they do not mention anything about the nut at all unlike their US counterparts.  They are actually quite mum about it.  I even e-mailed them about it and that was the only question in that e-mail they actually didn't answer.  The biggest proof that it is not as good as other self-lubricating nuts is when I had mine changed to graphite.  Big diff really.  Without mentioning names (unless he cares to join in hehe  :-)). actually ordered a US PRS nut and installed it on his Santana SE and I think he would also attest to the difference between the US nut and the stock SE nut.

+1
that's actually one of the first things na inuupgrade sa SE.. yung nut.. marami narin ako nababasa na pansin talaga yung difference pag graphite ang nilagay.. napapa-isip na nga rin ako kung papalitan ko eh.. hehe..

ako naman bro, lagi nagrereply sakin customer service nila.. sobrang helpful.. baka nachambahan lang na hindi ka nareplyan..  :?

Yeah, customer support is great.  Shawn Nuthall is really so helpful.  But really, I was so surprised that for the first time since I have been writing them since the late 90's, this was one thing they never answered at all.  hehe  Meron sin silang himalang ginagawa.  haha  But really, it wasn't such a problem he didn't answer that question.

i rarely use the trem naman eh so ok lang kahit di self lubricating. and when  i abuse it (from time to time inaabuse ko sa bahay) lagi paring siya nagsstay in tune.

btw i installed sperzels.

so malaki parin ba diff kung magandang nut ang ilagay? hindi ba ang affected lang niya yung open chords? or it affects overall tone?

it affects the string vibration as well as string return..i use graphite nut in my non locking guitars. plus they are easy to shape with a file..

Post by: curiousdcat on September 27, 2009, 10:37:37 PM
If you're sure it stays in tune, bakit pa, di ba?

What Sperzels were those?  Did you have additional holes drilled to be able to put them on?  Shawn Nuthall actually suggested the Grover 406C to me since it was an exact retrofit and required no hole modification.

eto pala yun, Schaller M6 na locking..
apparently, hindi ko po pinalitan machine heads nung sakin.. wrap-around kasi nasa SE standard ko and i think hindi ko pa kailangan ng locking tuners.. saka nalang siguro..
hindi ko rin sure kung meron sa Pinas, kung meron man, baka sobrang rare.. pero ayan direct replacement yan..  :-)

tama si jerome, ang kaibahan lang niya sa ibang SE Custom ay 24-fret siya at wide thin yung neck unlike all the SEs before it na wide fat, which is also very comfy for me.. also, yung SE Sustom 24 ay puro may trem, if you're not a fan of trems, sayang.. wala sila version nun na wrap around bridge..

magkano ba yun mga ganyan? 22k?  :-D

same price lang din yata yan sa SE Custom 22.. katuwa nga, ang daming bagong models ng SE na, in terms of cosmetics, nilalamon lang yung ibang models.. pero yung price range nilang lahat ay hindi masyadong magkakalayo..

i got my SE Standard for around 25k november of 2007.. the SE Custom 22 then was around 30k.. that was 30% off sale yata.. so a little around 30k lang din siguro yung mga SE Custom 24..  :-)

sir meron kasi mas mura na prs se's ngayon yung soapbar ata 22k? and ung isa pang type 26 ata.. sa pagkakaalala ko lang naman..

yes, yung soapbars ang pinakamura.. nasa 22k lang sila..  :-)

@ pitongjerome:  Does the graphtech nut you put on similar looking to the stock ones?  I mean are they blockish looking?  If so, do you mind giving me the particular model no. of that graphtech?  Thanks, man.

Mine is also a graphtech but it doesn't look like the stock ones.  This was supplied and installed by Dr. Hipolito almost 2 years ago.

habang wala si jerome, ako nalang muna sasagot.. we've got the same nut on our PRS kasi.. he asked me kung ano ginamit ko kaya pareho kami..  :-)

to answer your question, nope, it's not similar dun sa stock ones.. the stock nut is block-shaped while the graphtech has a slight curve sa itaas..
the nut we used is the Graphtech PT-6060-00..

or siguro yung kay Sir Curiousdcat ay yung blank na nut from graphtech.. tapos baka si Sir Arie nalang gumawa ng nut slots.. kasi yung mga slots nung sa kanya malalim.. unlike yung satin na [re-slotted na, mababaw yung slots.. halos naka-expose pa yung strings..
Title: Re: The PRS Thread...
Post by: curiousdcat on January 26, 2010, 08:31:07 PM
Thanks for the replies, guys.   :-)

Yes, I like the slots deep.  It makes me feel more secure because I feel (let me stress that again --- I feel  :-)) that the strings would pop out less when I used to abuse the bar.  hehe  Actually the slots were not as deep when Arie set them up for 10s.  I shifted to 11s and filed the slots myself and because I am no expert, it also went deeper.   :lol:  Good thing it didn't cause fret buzz.

Ako naman, lately ko lang naappreciate yung medyo mababaw na slots.. pero hindi naman sobrang babaw na parang mawawala yung string sa slot.. yung stock kasi na nut malalim, eh yung graphtech medyo mababaw nga.. hindi naman trem ang bridge ko nothing to worry din..

whatever works for us and feels good to us is FTW!  :-)

You're absolutely right, r_chino18!   :-D  It is a 2006 (based on the serial number) Cherry-Sunburst Custom 22.  Aside from Grover 406s, the graphtech nut, a Tremol-No and a coil-tap mod, the guitar is still pretty much stock.  Here's are the only photos of it that you see a big part of the guitar.  Will take solo pictures soon.

coil split on the stock pickups? pinaconvert mo to 4-conductor yung stock pickups bro?

yan din dapat ang gitara ko ngayon.. A 2006 SE Custom22 in cherry sunburst.. kaso the only stock i've tried sa JB (actually kinuha pa nila from another branch) noon ay maraming battlescars which i didn't like.. i ended up with the Standard..

Thanks.  I'm not really sure if the stock Custom pups come with 4-conductor wires or if Arie converted them but based on some other forums there are some SEs (including Standards) that have 4 and some have only 2 on a particular model.  I don't know why they are done that way.  I think there's a pair in the classifieds now that came from a Standard but have 4 conductor wires.

Talaga?  The last time that my SE was at Arie's was Jan. 2009.  Thanks for teling me that you were able to use it --- lagot si Arie sa kin!  HAHA   :-D

I think the uneven fingerboard color is brought about by the camera.  It is not that uneven in real life as I'm sure you would remember.   :wink:

lol.. those are my pickup pair sa classifieds.. stock sila pero pinaconvert ko to 4-conductors..  :-)
mine came with two conductors.. ang alam ko lahat ay 2-conductors lang.. pero yung ilan sa mga 2009-present na SEs, meron daw mga 4-conductors..
pero anyway.. ang mahalaga is you were able to have a coil split mod on it..  :-)

yes, that's the one why i brought arie my guitar. and now i know how to get away with it. i learned to improve my muting-while-riffing/licking skills because of that.

yun yung pinagusapan namin nun ni arie, matagal na diskusyon LOL.. sabi niya desirable pa nga daw un ng ibang gitarista hehehe! now i know how to use those overtones and harmonics to my advantage.. ill use it whenever i want it, and mute when i needed to.

kaya nga pinahiram niya sakin yung gitara ni curiousdcat, dahil ganun din daw yun, at naka tremol-no daw yun hahaha!!

Oh, so your guitar was the one Arie was telling me about.  Actually, mine wasn't a problem with the overtones but more of a warble and less sustain on one fret.  It was later agreed to be some form of Stratitis and we found out that changing the resonant frequency of the guitar will take out the problem on that problem fret.  Adding a Fat Fingers took out the warble and added the issing sustain on that fret but only moved it to another position on the neck.  I took out the Fat Fingers and just played in a different position.  hehe

waw!! ganda  :-D

Thanks, man.   :-)

guys i have an RSguitarworks vintage wiring upgrade kit for the prs coming in. im thinkin about selling it na lang.. anyone interested?


hmmm....isip, isip, isip.  Will advise you.  Nice guitar.   :-)

back to my prs, after installing the graphtech nut, ive noticed greatly na parang may "reverby sound" siya ngayon, kahit unplugged.. anyone noticed this guys?

I haven't.  Is that "reverby sound" good or bad for you?

well, its good for me.. i really like the sound..

but then i realized, before, i did put a sponge sheet/foam (uratex) on the back of my trem cavity.. but i removed it a week or two na.

baka ngayon ko lang napansin.. i will test that later.. ibabalik ko yung uratex mamaya, and ill test it.

but then, it has this reverby thing on like 80-90% of my fretboard, yung sa iba parang super konti lang meron.. pero i like it, i really do, i was amazed, really.

buy mo na! nothing but good reviews about it.. its just that jim from wcr pups is giving me a good deal on his wiring kit.. (i have his am. steele pick up set) :)
heres a description from the website

What this is:

For years, guitar manufacturers have chosen to cut corners on the electronics they have used, even in their top-of-the-line guitars. This kit is designed to utilize the best electronic components possible in your guitar. This kit is the culmination of thousands of hours of research and development into different guitar electronics and how each of them affects the overall tone of the guitar.

What's in the kit:

(1) 500K RS Short-Shaft SuperPot™- We designed these pots in conjunction with CTS. Used for the volume controls in the kit, these pots have a custom taper that gives you a noticeable difference between each number on your volume control. You can finally roll your volume down to 2 or 1 and not loose any clarity, even in the neck position!! Mil-spec construction and a smoother resistor path make this the best pot to ever be used in the guitar.
(1) 500K Alpha Push-pull Audio taper pot- Audio taper pots work great for tone controls. This pot gives you the coil tap option that is needed in PRS style guitars.
(1) RS Paper and Oil GuitarCap® by Jensen .022. Some of our customers have asked us for a good vintage cap option for some time, so we went to Jensen and asked them to make a paper and oil capacitor as small as possible for that "woody" tone and they nailed it!
(1) Length vintage-black wire- Used for the grounding in the circuit.
(1) Length vintage-white wire
(1) 3-position switch- Made by Switchcraft® in the United States, this is the best 3-way switch on the market. All kits come with the short/straight switch, but you can request a 90 degree switch (see above explanation.)

How this kit improves your tone:

All of the above components combine to create unprecedented clarity in your overall tone. This increase in clarity will also equate to an increase in note bloom, harmonic complexity, and, in some cases, sustain. Because this kit increases the usability and intuitiveness of the controls onboard your guitar, you will achieve tones that you didn’t think were possible. The Vintage Upgrade Kits offer a warmer, woody tone.

haha  Yes, siore.  Was not able to get the nut from Magdon that time because they didn't have stocks then and just didn't check again.  How's everything on your end?   :-)

Okay naman.  Still enjoying my Santana SE.   :-D  Still in love with it man.  Stock pa rin, just the nut change.

guys i have an RSguitarworks vintage wiring upgrade kit for the prs coming in. im thinkin about selling it na lang.. anyone interested?

I recently re-wired my RJ les paul to 50's wiring and some good PIO caps, and during that time I also eyed my santana SE with evil intent.  :lol:  But I decided against changing its electronics, since I'm still ok with the stock wiring.  Maybe if I get bored (I hope not!! ferchrissakes), I'll gut it out.  The RS pots and jensen cap are always tempting...

Nice guitar, btw.  Whale blue, right?

If you like it, keep it!   :-)  I don't mean to question why you called it "reverby sound" but di kaya you're hearing natural overtones?

Thank you sir!  :-)

Yeah, I"ve used RS pots before and they do improve the sound a bit.  Although the improvement wasn't really that drastic IMO, it was still a sound that I would love to have.  My problem with RS pots is that I don't like the feel of their taper.  Reminds me of a reverse audio log pot and I want mine close to linear if possible.  Will really think about it and advise you ASAP.  Thanks.   :-)

well i call it reverby sound coz it sounds like a reverb set to 1.. and i really love it..

im pretty sure it aint overtones because i have learned to control and use it..

its not an all out reverb, its just like a really small amount of reverb which i do like :lol: :lol:

actually.....

yung PRS comments thread ay ang 3rd na PRS thread dito sa GC.. itong thread na pinopostan natin ngayon ang 2nd.. yung 1st na PRS thread ay medyo naging madumi yata.. so far, it's this thread and the PRS Comments thread ang mga pumapatungkol sa PRS.. pero yung sa PRS Comments kasi, humihingi yung TS ng experiences with PRS guitars, not necessarily parang PRS club or what.. Etong PRS thread talaga ang parang "PRS useres thread", as far as i know..

karamihan ng nandito ay SE ang PRS.. iilan lang yung may mga USA models..

Wag na natin iseparate yung USA at SE models.. like yung sa ibanez thread.. merong (general) ibanez thread tapos may lumabas pa na gio thread.. toinks..
 :lol:
dito nalang lahat ng PRS guitar users.. mapa-SE or USA.. para happy..  :wink:

yes. pwede ma-entertain yung tanong niya sa thread na ito.. it would be good kung pwede imerge dito ng mods sa thread na ito..

uy pareng chino, ang ganda naman bosong-boso yung SE mo. hahaha! nice shot btw.

oi ernest.. salamat tol., hindi ko na yan dadamitan..  :lol:

Hi PRS users -- anyone here ever tried a PRS SE custom 22? I know it's been discontinued but may have a chance to acquire one..Bka may nakagamit na dito.  :-)

nakagamit na ako bro when i was on the hunt for a PRS SE.. halos pareho lang sila ng features ng SE Standard.. nagkatalo lang sa ilang bagay.. meron siyang veneer maple top at glossy ang finish niya.. i think that adds some treble to the guitar..

neck is fine, kasing taba or chunky lang din ng standard.. but it's glossed din.. so kung mapawis ang kamay mo, you might need some getting used to it kasi baka maging malagkit or sticky ang dating..

they look good.. pero they're purely flat top.. imagine a telecaster, ganun lang yung ibabaw niya.. flat lang talaga..

actually, having owned a tele, may i add that the prs se's edges are more pointy than teles, which are rounder.

to answer the question, i have a prs se custom, trem version. trem holds tune if properly set up, and if the strings are stretched really good.

if theres anything i would replace in that guitar, itd be the nut. replace it with graphtech coz its plastic. the pups are already good, tuners does its job. very sustainy guitar, and mine resonates really well. i can feel the resonation from the body to the neck to the headstock..

Title: Re: The PRS Thread...
Post by: siore on June 23, 2010, 09:32:45 AM
Oo chong maliit lang.  Pero mixed feelings ako dyan sa mga bulsa bulsa eh.  On one hand, gusto ko na malaki yung bulsa, tsaka maraming paglalagyan.  OTOH, like my previous gigbag, medyo nagiging bulky kapag ganun yung pockets.  Yung mono gigbags, approaching bulky na yun for me.  Borderline bulky lang naman.  So I guess it's a balance thing between pockets/portability.  Yung SE gigbag, tamang guitar + small stomp or two lang yung kasya, pero sometimes yun lang gusto ko dalhin.  YMMV.

wla yan sa pabilisan. sa unahan yan! that might not make sense to you but it did to me (2 minutes ago. hahahaha)

Wow! Congrats bro, super jackpot ka na dun!

i must agree. para akong bumili ng brand new. as in. may straplocks pa, strap not to mention the sperzels and pickup upgrades. i feel this one needs a graphtech nut though :D

bwahaha.. bro ikaw yung kukuha nung standard?? kaya pala..  :lol:

congrats! steal na steal yun.. though sayang kasi maganda yung machine heads pero hindi direct replacement ang sperzel.. kaya may screwholes na nakikita.. but then again, upgrades palang nasa 9k na..  :-) who's to argue..  :lol:

ok lang, nasa likod naman sha, hardly seen. the sperzels made the headstock look more macho and imposing! sna lang imbes ng SE standard eh PRS nlng ung nasa headstock tapos SE ung asa TRC, dba?

Sino ba nakakuha neto? Grasyaps ba? Dang! Bro kung magbago isip mo ako na kukuha. Or benta mo sken khit 11k.

kahit 11 dko bebenta to. kahit na pa sa 15K. kahit nga sa 20K hindi parin.

22K brandnew minus gig bag (freebee lang to ng guitars tlga eh), tuning machines (1000) and pickups (2000) say thats 19K value

plus sperzels (3K) and pickups (6K) + straplocks and strap 1500 = 10500 minus 1K for new graphtech nut.

give me 28500 in value. but got it for 10K. i would be insane to sell it for 11K (no offense to kilo_pi). pero buti nlang he was badly wanting something else.

im so happy! i was supposed to have gotten a hollowbody PRS SE custom na before for around 13K kaso di natuloy so sobrang hinayang ko. so, tagal na akong nageeye ng PRS sa JB. sabi ko sa sarili ko 'darating ka din!' eto na!

i therefore welcome myself to thy club r-chino! :P

they say, the more you hate, the more you love! :P

and yes, the holes (tiny) dont bother me at all.

ive been blessed with upgraded pickups and tuning machines. i got it with 12s (drop B) but i just set it up with 10s. the neck is straight with the new string gauge but the A string buzzes when plucked open (no fret, nut fret? hehehe). the nut slot was cut too low because when fretted, the string doesnt buzz, all the way down the last fret. also, upon closer inspection, the slot was noticeably lower than the others. but nothing a newly slotted graphtech nut would cure, right?  :-D

minus a few hairline scratches on the back (do you even see it in the photos?), the guitar is like new, built really well and totally beefed up! tonepro wrap-around bridge (or a bit cheaper after market equal) nlang kulang!

haha.. inaabangan ko nga yung sinabi sa ad na may mga buckle rash sa likod.. pero from the pics, parang wala akong makita.. haha.. ang swabe niyan brad.. ayos na ayos yang nascore mo..  :-)

when he first posted it for 15K, i was like 'hmmmm'. but when he lowered it to 10K, i told him 'let me get the guitar. when can we meet?' he called up to confirm and set it the coming saturday. it was thursday then and although he'd told me its been reserved for me, i asked to meet him at his convenience the following day (friday).

and the rest was history. :D

it just pays to have some extra cash around. you'll never know when the right opportunity would come to buy something you just cant pass on, right?

anyways, back to regular programming.

im still looking for the wrench to adjust the truss rod. the dude who got this said he didnt get one when he bought it. the dudes are JB Music are really sneaky. went to JB Megamall yesterday to ask if they sell any, the BOSS was there (i knew him, that mestizo guy who also owns Salonga in Cubao) who told me they dont have any to sell separately and that they come with every purchase of a PRS guitar. i bet one of those goons wouldve sold me one (one they didnt give those who bought before... coz ive read some who bought brand new never got one as well), one they kept for themselves, had the boss not been around :|

Yes, I believe so too.  Bad thing is the "sneaky" ones are those who are in higher up positions pa.  The staff and even the branch managers are really good people as far as my experiences are cincerned.  It's a shame that the "bosses" are not as straight up as their employess.  It's a good thing these bosses are not the frontliners or else I wouldn't have been getting stuff from them for a little over 2 decades aleady.

Case in point, I never got a registration card for one of the guitars I bought so I asked for it.  Stsff said they will get it from head office but when they weren't able to do so, I went directly to the product manager.  I was then told that there were no reg cards for the batch of shipment my guitar came in with and that they have requested for the reg cards already which they expect to arrive with the next shipment.  So when the next shipment came, no word from the PM.  I let that pass but after another shipment, wala pa rin.  So I brought it up once more with the PM and he said that it may arrive with the next shipment already.  So I waited for the next shipment to come and there was not even any advise from the PM again.  After almost 2 years of waiting for it, I brought the matter up with PRS US and that specific guitar got registered in kess than 2 days!  So much for the local PM's credibility for me.

There should be a free guitar cable too (straight to angled moulded type).  If none, better ask them about it.  I know that was just a generic cable but it's the principle that matters here, don't you think?

Although the PRS site doesn't mention what is included in a complete SE "package", some reviews and online store describe the parts that come along with it.  I went to my suking branch with these info in mind.   :-)

When they brought out the gigbag, it was already inside along with the other stuff.  Packed professionally-looking (hehe) inside a long ziplock back (<--- this should have been typed as "bag" haha) that was just the exact size for everything.

I wasn't aware that it was supposed to be part of the package until just now, but since I bought on March 26th, ewan ko pa kung pwede ko pa habulin.

Kaso pakiramdam ko hinde nman nila ibibigay un kung hinde ako humingi ng gigbag. Kinapalan ko lng ang muka ko na humingi baka may ibigay. Ayun binigyan ako prs gigbag pa.

They actually gave me a Boston M-15 amp as a freebie.  I asked them if I could get a further discount if I don't accept the amp.  Not possible daw, the price would still be the same.  So I just got the amp and sold it immediately here in PhilMu.  hehe

I have just examined the truss rod wrench awhile ago and I think that a socket wrench can be used as an alternative.  Anyways, I googled "truss rod wrench alternative" before posting my suggestion and it did come up with a couple of sites that say a socket wrench will do.  All yo have to do now is find one that fits.  Good luck!   :-)

been trying to look for one. no luck with the local tool shops. my SE has a straight neck so really no need to adjust, yet. its the japanese yamaha acoustic im wanting to adjust, which incidentally has the same type of truss rod.

Sabagay pera naman talaga. Wala din akong skills kaya pag yumaman ako mgpapagawa ako sa private stock team ng maraming gitara na dinesign ko. Tapos bibigyan ko ng tig-iisang SE lahat ng prs users sa thread nato na mgko-quote nitong post ko na to. :lol:

I am also officially quoting your quote.   :lol:

kelan kaya magkaka tone party ang mga may prs? sama din ang may mga US prs, kahit minority sila hehe

Great idea!  Pwede ba pumunta just to eat and drink, watch, listen and ogle at the guitars?  Pretty please?   :evil:

ever since i bought my guy (the SE Standard), i cant stop watching PRS videos and learning infos! :D

in other news...

well really, is it really about who has the chops and who doesnt? it will always be subjective anyways.

whether you have an SE, CE or a Private Stock made in Jupiter, if youre happy with it, then by all means, just play it! What i hate is those people who are mayabang tapos wala naman palang alam. yung maraming alam na mayabang nga nakakainis na, yun kayang wla dba?  :wink:

although it is true that great gear will not make up for a lack in skill, but whats best it to have fun! if youre just fond of guitars yet you think you are not that gifted in playing, then who the hell cares? kung di ka naman nagbbrag, mga ingget lang yung mga yun kasi they cant have what you have.  :-P

some private collectors cant even play beyond the 4 'right chords' but they have the most amazing guitars in the world! but there some (sourgraping) people who would say those collectors dont deserve to have those guitars in their possession because blah blah blah. bunch of douches if you ask me!

now the question is, sino ang mag ho-host? :D

Pag magka-tone party with PRS users, sana may magdadala ng SE Torero... the thing looks so cool. It goes for nearly $995 e (about ~45k php). Sana mag-cooldown yung presyo nito kapag may stock na dito sa 'Pinas. Never tried EMGs before but I'd want my first experience with them to be with a sick looking PRS guitar.

by the way bro.. i don't know if anyone has asked yet.. anong particular na hardcase ang gamit mo jan? how does the SE fit? hindi ba umaalog pag bitbit na? flat ba na nakahiga yung gitara? or medyo nasususpend yung sa may heel na portion?

thanks much.  :-)

medyo nasuspend yung heel pero nilagyan ko ng styrofoam na maliit parang kalso hehe. di naman umaalog. gator hardcase nga pla to, i used it before sa epiphone lp. sa lp saktong sakto sya.

hindi lang din kasi yun.. revamp ulit ako ng electronics.. dumating narin daw sabi ni sir spanky.. next week din yun..

then yung isa ko pang inorder, bagong wrap around bridge.. hopefully next week din ang dating nun..

may bago din akong graphtech nut.. haha.. try ko lang ibang kulay, white.. andito na sakin pero di ko pa naikakabit.. hehe..

will also be switching from 9s to 10s kaya tingin ko kailangan ko iset-up ng buo ito.. hehe.. whew! so much to be done.. buti nalang isa lang gitara ko..  :lol: :lol:

ganyang wraparound yung inorder ko.. galing sa guitarfetish na wilkinson.. although yan yung wilkinson by sung-il, hindi yung wilkinson by gotoh.. mahal yung gotoh na wilkinson eh.. hehe..

pati i've read many reviews na ok yang wilkinson by sung-il na nasa guitarfetish.. kahit mga ibang PRS users abroad yan din ang gamit.. pero hindi ko alam kung metric or standard ang sukat niyan.. baka hindi sumakto yung poles niya sa pole bushings sa gitara natin.. although pwde naman yung stock poles natin para sa bridge na yan..

hmm.. di ako mayaman bro.. pinag-ipunan ko lang din talaga yung mga upgrades ko.. syempre ayoko din na basta nalang palitan, gusto ko yung magiging step-up talaga..  :-)

yun lang talagang posts at bushings.. balitaan kita kung sakto din sila or what pagdating nung sakin.. pero i doubt.. hehe.. mukhang standard measure sila at hindi metric eh.. pero since it's wilkinson by sung-il, baka metric.. hehe.. tingnan natin.. hope for the best..  :-)

my brother has an RG321 which has a wizard neck.. the ibanez's neck is really thin compared sa PRS but seemed a tad wider din.. plus flatter/bigger fretboard radius..

Oo sobra.  I dunno what to make of it.  I think his guitar also needed a setup, too much relief for my comfort and the low E needs to be raised at the nut.  It felt like a toy, to be honest, but the owner likes it so much that I held back what I thought of it.  Ridiculously lightweight.  Di ba mahogany din yun?  I know good mahogany can be lighter than most (like historic les pauls), but isn't there a certain cutoff where it's too light?  I could swear there was a bit of neck dive also.

Not in any way indicative of tremonti SE's in general btw.  :-D  If anything, I want to try out other tremonti SE's.  I know I've wanted one before for my first PRS, but now more than ever, I'm convinced not to buy one unless I get to play it first.  Just wanna ask other tremonti SE owners how's the weight on theirs?

Sanay naman bro pero after an hour or two... ayan na sya bumibigat na.

lol.. ang ginawa ko sa pagwire ko ay yung parang kay nalu.. nasa labas lahat ng pots tapos may template ako na kagaya ng cavity nung gitara.. then sa labas ko winire para maluwag yung space then salpak nalang lahat sa cavity pagkatapos.. yung pickups nalang ang sinolder ko..  :-)

Ay ganun siguro, mas solid at pure ung mga naunang issues ng tremonti kaya mabigat. Rare na yata ang tremonti, last kong nakita nito ay sa sm pampanga last year kulay white pa. Kaso regular price.

OT. Hows cort guitars?

I see bro. wow may color white? ganda nun ah!

Nung tinry ko yang PRS ng kapatid ko, first impression ko was that sensitive sa picking dynamics, less ballsy version ng tone zone, but it's still has enough beef. Notes are smooth.  :-)

Hi bro.. hmm.. i might post a demo of it this weekend.. pero to give a heads up, the pickup is not too trebly.. it has a good bass and a whole lot of mids pag clean.. it might be a love-hate relationship when clean kasi other people might prepare a sparkly clean tone.. the AT-1 ain't like that.. hindi rin yata ginagamit ni andy for cleans ang AT-1, yung cruiser ang gamit niya..

anyway.. the pup has good harmonics and is sensitive to picking.. ganda niya kahit sa high gain pedal, beefy pickup.. parang kabaliktaran ng SD JB..  :-)

buti hindi nahulog ang gitara

haha.. iyak nalang ako pag may biglang pumasok sa kwarto at madali yung headstock..  :lol:

Ganda! Set-up na! What Neck pup are you gonna get bro?  :-)

might save up for a Dimarzio PAF 36th anniv bro..  :-)

Any recommended neck p/u's for my SE Custom 22?  :? Way too muddy with distortion on... when I change from bridge to the neck it sounds like someone threw a blanket on my amp. I only use it clean and with a compressor on for that reason...

I played this exact guitar when I visited Tom Lee HK. I was afraid of even holding for fear of bumping the body of the guitar.  :lol:

try it with a relatively treblier neck pickup bro.. Dimarzio D'Activator neck, Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro neck, etc..

how did you find the guitar bry?  :-)

bry?   :?

didn't dig the carved top as much as everyone else seeing as I started out with Fender copies... but the neck, finish, and the pickups are really damn good. neck p/u was smooth and dark, but not too dark. kahit hindi semi-hollow ay pwedeng pwede pang jazz.  :-D I played it through a Mesa Mark IV (I think, not too sure). hehe.

yung stock bridge pickup ay f-spaced bro.. i just got an f-spaced bridge pickup to replace it para consistent ako.. the OC-ness of seeing the pole pieces align perfectly under the strings.. lol..

pero i've seen other PRS guys how slap in regular spaced buckers sa bridge.. very minimal lang yata ang change niya eh, not really noticeable.. kaya ayun.. OC lang talaga ako kaya gusto ko sakto.. minsan ko lang naman papalitan eh so kunin ko na yung tama..  :-)

Just want to update you guys. To all who have an SE with a wraparound tailpiece. I just recently got a brand new Wilkinson wraparound tailpiece from guitarfetish.com (http://guitarfetish.com).

At first i was kind of hesitant to get one since i have no idea about its measurements, whether it's a replacement for metric bridges or US standard spec'd, but i pulled the trigger anyway. I needed to replace my stock bridge which was already oxidizing and the chrome plating was just being torn apart, literally..

Here's what I've found:
1. They're metric. The studs will fit directly on the bushings.
2. The hardware comes complete with the bridge, studs, bushings, and two allen wrenches.
3. Since the studs fit directly on the bushings, i did not have to use the bushings that came with the Wilkinson bridge.
4. The stock SE studs won't fit on the Wilkinson.
5. The Wilkinson has a wider length and is bigger overall, but the string spacing is just the same as the stock.
6. Both bridges are light, i got the Wilkinson since the G & B strings can be intonated separate from the rest.
7. I think this is the Wilkinson by Sung-il brand.. not the Wilkinson by Gotoh..
8. Radius of stock bridge is 10", radius of this Wilkinson bridge is 12". Am yet to see how the action and playability is affected.

some pics for comparison..

i put some teflon to make the studs tight in the bushing.. so they won't rotate and will be fixed on a certain height when i remove the bridge during restringing..

i'll call it a night, mabye continue tomorrow.. but i like how the bridge looks.. it looks macho.. lol.. i mean, it makes the guitar look firm and ballsy!

didn't get it thru him bro.. tapos na kasi yung shipping niya and i didn't want to wait.. pinasabay ko kay grasyaps nung umorder siya sa guitarfetish..  :-)
this costs more or less 2k siguro kay bossingboss.. pero i'm not sure ha, hindi ako nagpaquote directly sa kanya..

anyway.. done with the intonation and action adjustment.. tweaked my truss rod a bit.. i'm all set! guitar plays fine.. i dunno if i'm deaf or i just didn't notice a change in tone of some sort, or i just didn't bother if it changed.. my purpose for replacing the stock bridge was because it was already falling apart..

good replacement bridge.. i like it.. i hope it lasts longer than the stock one, or else i'm really going for tonepros!  :lol:

hmm.. i dunno, pareho lang sila nung stock bridge ng weight (halos).. they're also made of aluminum as far as i know.. so tingin ko halos pareho lang.. mas marami lang chrome coating itong wilkinson ayon sa mga nabasa ko.. hmm.. yep, that's him..  :-)

got it brand new through Masterchoxter..


ask ko lang mga master ng PRS guitars. pinalitan nyo ba ng tuner ang SE nyo?

I find the stock SE tuners to be decent.. ok naman ang tuning ko.. you don't need to replace that lalo na kung hindi naman trem-version ang guitar mo..
mas ok magpalit ng locking nut kung nagpalit ka na ng maayos na nut pero may tuning issues ka pa rin..

anyway.. si pitongjerome, nagpalit na ng locking tuners sa SE Custom niya.. he used sperzels..

pero for a direct replacement, etong dalawang models ang sinasuggest mismo ng PRS Customer Service..

Schaller M6
or
Grover 406

+1 on what chino said.  Oks naman yung stock tuners, even for moderate trem usage.  Replace the nut first, nandun usually yung tuning problems.  Parang pang-9s ata setup nun eh, once I went with 10s sa string gauge, grabe yung 'ipit' sa nut.  Pwede mo rin file yung slots, but if you don't know what you're doing, take it to a luthier na lang.  I went with a PRS nut from magdon music, which uses the same material on US PRS guitars (SE nuts on the other hand, are plastic), but it cost me 30$ total.. with shipping almost the same cost as the nut itself.  You can get cheaper graphtech nuts from masterchoxter that are also self-lubricating.

Once you take care of the nut, but still need locking tuners, schaller m6 is the usual recommendation sa prs forums.

lol! yeah i was..  :lol: :lol:
pinalitan ko yung nut for cosmetic reasons.. lol.. OC ako bro.. i thought the black nut looked bland on the guitar, so i got the white one.. and it doesn't look like a white plastic nut.. it looks milky.. like carabao milk.. tapos when you drop a graphtech nut, ramdam mo yung pagkasolid niya.. it falls quick and sounds like ceramic (plates, tea cups, etc..).. cool..  :-)

yung stock nut bro ng SE ay plastic.. mukha lang graphite kasi black.. pero pag kinompare mo side by side sa graphtech, ibang-iba dude.. sobrang solid ng feel ng graphtech.. ang tinutukoy ko na gawa din ng graphtech ay yung US PRS stock nut pati yung aftermarket na US PRS nut..  :-)

ok.. so i went to JB music sa SM South Mall kanina.. here's what i found..

i was surprised na may bagong SE.. pero hindi ako naamaze na gitara, na-amaze ako sa ability ng JB na dalhin agad dito sa Pinas yung mga bagong models.. ang bilis ah!  :lol:

pero the price considerably went up.. my SE Standard was around 35k dati, tapos pag 30% off na sale ay nasa 25k lang.. pero ngayon, almost 30k na yung mga standard kahit old stock.. so maybe nasa 20% na yun.. sale price na yung ipopost ko..

don't ask why the Custom 24 is cheaper than the 22.. i don't know why.. lol.

you usually get what you pay for.. PRS SEs are also good platform for upgrades lalo na sa pickups.. maayos kasi yung craftsmanship at overall build niya.. hardware are all ok din.. actually, yht stock pickups are fine.. pero pag lang nabitin ka, madali palitan.. there..

maganda talaga ang pagkakagawa sa kanila..

if you really want a PRS SE, i suggest you save for it.. you can buy a UM3 pero magigising ka din at sasabihin mo sa sarili mo, "parang gusto ko parin ng PRS.."

10-15k is a good budget.. pero konting ipon pa bro, around 10k more.. i know it's not that easy to earn, pero pag nakuha mo na yung gusto mo talaga, hindi ka na magsisisi..  :-)

it's one reason why people always sell their guitar.. they get guitar clones tapos eventually maiisip nila na iba parin pag orig so they'll sell it to pursue the original plan.. pag ganun, nabawasan ka pa ng ilang libong piso.. i'm not saying that it's bad, though.. it's part of learning.. pero you can skip that if you know what will happen next..  :-)

good luck on your hunt!  :-)

i only have a PRS SE Standard in my arsenal.. still doing pickup upgrades and all.. pero matatapos na.. then i'll be getting an amp soon, i'm pretty sure this will be a really good tone machine..  :lol:

ang nagustuhan ko talaga sa SE ay yung build quality nila.. madali lang kasi palitan yung ibang bagay, pero one thing you can't change instantly ay yung magandang craftsmanship at feel nung gitara.. wide fat neck felt perfect for me, it's a little slimmer and thinner than a Squier Standard Telecaster's neck..  :-)

there are a lot of options for really good guitars at the 25k mark brand new.. pero ang ganda lang talaga ng feel ng neck nito..  :-)

amen to the neck feel bro! my SE Custom 22's neck is really comfortable for rhythm playing, imo. some say medyo sagabal yung neck at heel ng PRS guitars for shredding, but I find it just takes some getting used to the neck to be able to do so.  :-D My SE CU22 is my shred practice guitar, in fact. haha.

mismo.. hmm.. the neck heel bugs me sometimes, parang ang bulky.. but yes, it takes some getting used to..  :-)

pero siguro naman pwedeng pabawasan yung neck heel sa luthier.. lol.. sana lang wag magkaroon ng dead spots sa fretboard after nun..

PRS Custom24 = custom (mahogany body + maple top) model with 24 frets
PRS Standard 22 = standard (all mahogany body) model with 22 frets
PRS SC 245 = singlecut model with a 24.5 scale length
PRS 305 = 3 pickups, 5-way switch (?)
PRS 513 = 5pickups/5-way switch with one 3-way blade switch (?)

i'm sure since bago yung 25th anniversary, hindi sila magpapatawad dun.  i-maximize muna nila yung revenue nila sa mga kawawang mga tao na misinformed.  i was seriously turned off dun sa ginawa nilang strategy.

hindi ko alam kung may Torero na sa JB pero it's one of the most, if not the most, expensive SE.. i'm guessing papatak around 50k pagdating sa JB..  :-)

dalawa klase ng necks nila eh, wide fat at wide thin.. i dunno kung may particular na sukat, pero ang difference lang nila ay mas manipis talaga yung wide thin.. pareho lang yan ng width sa nut pero ayun, mas manipis lang siya..  :-)

if you can drop by JB minsan, try mo sumubok ng lumang SE (Santana, Standard, Custom22, Soapbar) at yung bago (25th Anniv Custom 24, Custom24).. yung mga luma kasi puro wide fat, yung bago mga naka wide thin na.. para mas makita at mafeel mo yung difference nila..

SE One is an old model.. as well as the Singlecut Korina.. mas nauna pa sila kesa jan sa mga 25th anniv custom, at mga bagong signature SEs.. pero for some reason, di ko pa personally nakikita yung dalawang model na yun.. i dunno, baka dahil hindi ako nakakavisit sa mga main showroom nila.. karamihan ng maraming models at high end models ay nasa main showrooms nila eh, sa Trinoma at SM North..  :-)

si siore, he owns a Santana II SE.. you can get reviews from him.. pero basically, parang SE Standard lang siya na glossed finish tapos iba ang inlays at bound ang neck..  :-)

pero take note lang na yung mga Santana II ay NOS na.. new old stock, i mean.. matagal na kasing discontinued yan, as in.. baka mga 2006 or 2005 models na yung mga natitira..

good luck bro!

Got this I think last year from Vhunter.

First time I played the guitar sa domain ni Vhunter, I felt a tingle in my hands, the whole thing just resonates.

The guitar is very SG sounding, but has the option to go single coil(ish).

Pickups are ok, but can get muddy sometimes, kung pangit ang timpla mo (lahat naman talaga pa-pangit)
Nice taper on the volume and tone, can go clean with just a turn of the knob.

The guitar is very unforgiving, maybe because its very midrangey. Litaw lahat ng nota. Very articulate, and it can bring out the best and sadly the worst in your guitar playing.

According to Dodjie (skunkyfunk) mayroon naman daw hiyaw (as alex would say it) yung guitar. As he was playing with it when i brought the guitar to his studio.

The thing I like about the guitar is the aluminum wraparound bridge. Kasi, I have issues with ABR-1's dahil yung yung pegs are like teeth that scrapE on the strings, and ang daming beses ko na na puputulan ng strings sa gig because of that. And that is why binenta ko na lahat ng guitars ko na ganun ang bridge.

Ang mahirap lang ay ang mag intonate which is bad for me because the guitar is setup Standard E on 10's, and I play Eb on 11's.

Been thinking of upgrading the pickups pero haven't found a pair that fits my budget, plus, able to be coil split.

Would've wanted the vintage orange Mira or the Mira with maple cap but hey, beggars can't be choosers right :-)

ROCK!

iba parin kasi pag pro tech ang gagawa ng guitar mo.. had my nut replaced into bone nut.. to match my pup ring haha!! ano kayang tonal diff ang mangyayari?

at iba ang approach niya sa intonation.. i knew i intonated it well via tuners.. but he showed me otherwise.. and and i had it fret leveled and crowned.. and i let himfix the pole pieces so i can have even volume amongst strings..

lol.. there's no turning back once i drill a hole in there, so it's gonna be a big decision.. naisip ko rin na baka maging masikip pag tatlo silang knobs na nakalinya dun..

but you know what, i browsed the PRSF kanina.. i had myself gassing for some tonepros locking studs.. might get a pair pag nakaluwag sa mga extra gastos..  :lol:

As promised: PRS 25th Anniversary SE Custom 24

(http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j211/rpvera/HPIM3280.jpg)

As described in PRS Website
Body
Top Wood: Maple Top with Quilt Maple Veneer
Body Wood: Mahogany

Neck
Number of Frets: 24
Scale Length: 25"
Neck Wood: Maple
Fretboard Wood: Rosewood
Neck Shape: Wide Thin
Fretboard Inlays: Pearloid Birds

Hardware
Bridge:  PRS Designed Tremolo
Tuners: PRS Designed Tuners
Treble Pickup: SE HFS Treble Humbucker
Bass Pickup: SE Vintage Bass Humbucker
Pickup Switching: Volume and Tone Control with 3-Way Toggle

Quick review:

Neck is nice and smooth. Radius very optimal for all types of play. Equipped with D'Addario 9s. Action was low without buzz. Plugged in, tones are sweet. Best sound comes from middle position. Tremolo is new to me as the bar is an "insert" rather that screw on. Don't dive bomb anyway so I think it will hold in a gig.

The look is priceless. Vintage yellow with red tones in head and cutaway. Cream pickup rings adds for unique look. And bird inlays!

Caveat: Bought it at JB Southmall for P38K sale price. The SE Custom is P44K regular price. I got it at a steal!

Title: Re: The PRS Thread...

nice 25th anniv..  :-) good score you got on that one.. cheers!
they're at 20% off sale ngayon.. when i bought my Standard way back 2008, they had a 30% off of the PRS guitars.. so i got mine for 5k less than the sale price today.. anyway, still a good one that you got.  :-)

@ernan - duling ba ko o wala talagang toggle switch yung prs mo?

Let me answer for ernan.  Stock yan on some PRS models.  You get the rotary 5-way position switch instead of a 3-position toggle.  Some prefer the 5-way over a toggle with push-pull pot, and vise-versa.

BTW ernan, how does PRS call that finish?  I dig the complement of black rings and knobs, lalakeng-lalake bro.  :wink:  And with the rig you got there, awesome!!  If only I could have the simplicity and WIN of your setup.  :-P

@Letour

Nice guitar!!  I love the trem inserts of PRSi, and their trems in general.  Soon you'll be doing jeff beck licks!  :-D  I like the middle position as well, the stock PUPS together seem to have that single-coil thing going on when you're in middle.  Just a tad.  And I must commend you on the nice price you got it for!  If only I've waited a year, malamang ganyan din guitar ko ngayon.  :-P :-P

Thanks for the posts guys.

I am really enjoying this new baby. I changed the strings to my favorite Ernie Balls. But I found a flaw in the tremolo. Actually in the guy inserting the strings through the tremolo.... ME!  :lol:

Haven't changed strings in a back loading tremolo for a long time so I forgot to pull the strings all the way up the cavity before winding the tuners. As I was tightening the strings.....BAM.... I thought I broke the tuners.... But it was the string...... had about a couple inches in the cavity. So now my G string has a tiny fold by the bridge pickup.

Ah well, lesson learned.....
