  • Obligatory NGD photos. PRS SE Singlecut

    So, after flipping my PRS SE semi-hollow as the edge dug too much into my forearm, I knew I wanted a singlecut and the price was right on this one ($460 delivered to Australia).



    First impressions, light, weighed in at 7.2 lbs but feels lighter, scale could be off, I could be off. The pickups sound great clean, quite articulate, not so great with any gain or distortion, too shrill and muffled for me. I'm pretty sure the bridge will be getting my spare Tone Zone. Regardless, I'll spend some more time with them though, just in case. And speaking of cases, aren't these SE cases nice! I'll actually use it.



    The figure, albeit fake, isn't bad. Some other brands just look dumb but I can live with this one.



    The neck is great and while I'm no shredder, it is a fast neck (wide/fat) but pretty average in girth really. Kind of a V to C shape. I set it up with a 1/8th of a turn of the truss and lowered the bridge just slightly.



    Probably my only complaint is it feels a little toy like. Here she is...

    I have a Tone Zone in the bridge of my Singlecut Se and it is sounds awesome! I put an Air Norton in the neck which is also a great match!

        Don't say that, I'm likely to break out the soldering iron today.



        I like some meat in my sound so it will happen, just not today. A Norton in the neck with splits for both sounds good!

            I think it would look better with chrome pickup covers. Oh, and you're killing us in the Northern Hemisphere with those pictures in the summer sun ...

                Ya, not a bad call for the chrome pickup covers. Kinda needs them. Believe or not, I find it too hot here in the summer, you can't be active outside as you'll either burn to death or die from dehydration. Winter here is perfect, about 70 F daily with lots of sun.

                    They DO feel toy-like, but look cool.



                    And yeah, I live in Michgan. It's a ****************ing tundra here.
