Yeah I'm going to try replacing it with a Graph tech and see what happens. Thanks!
Would this nut be a direct fit?
Yup the 43x6, that is correct.
Couldn't resist this top so it's on it's way to me very soon. Now I'm wondering if I should replace the nut with a black or a white one.
Not sure if this has been shared yet, but Mark recently got himself an Holcomb SE with an ebony veneer top.
Is that satin? Mine has a gloss finish...
I have no idea. Here you can see more pictures of it:
"Finish: Gloss body, Satin neck"
Ah never mind it's gloss like mine.
Don't you like gloss? The finish "pops" more with a gloss finish I guess?
Eh not really when it's just a veneer like this. When it's a nice top I prefer gloss, but when it's not I prefer satin for the playability. It's just a bit more comfortable on my forearm. I used to be a lot more satin only, but now I just go with what looks better.
I understand. How do you like the playability of the guitar? Saw you posted a pic of it back a few pages. Did you change the nut etc yet? I think I'll do that pretty soon after getting mine.
It might honestly be my all time favorite 6 string and that's comparing to a ton of way more expensive guitars. I truly wish I could get a USA made version of the exact same guitar. Sadly the USA Holcombs are way over priced. I did end up changing the nut a few days ago with a black graph tech. I love it so much that I've been thinking about building a Kiesel Crescent to very similar specs and then throwing in a pair of Alpha/Omegas.
That sounds great, really looking forward to getting it! Had a 1998 Custom 22 before, but had to sell it unfortunately. This will be my first PRS since then (although the old one was a USA model ofc) I'm just wondering if I should go with a black or a white nut. Can you post a pic of yours with a black nut?
I honestly think this guitar feels amazing for what it costs and being made in Korea. I'm at work right now, but I can take a picture when I get home. I feel like the white would have worked better for this guitar, but I much prefer black no matter the guitar.
That Trampas Green looks so slick, although I feel like double cream or zebra pickups and cream pickup rings would make it look really slick, and bone/white tusq nut. It'd be such a sleeper metal axe then.
Yeah, i was considering some cream pickup rings for a mire proper «PRS look» haha
go with white, so it blends with the binding
fixed for ya
CUs have white rings, its only on the SE that they use cream for some stupid reason.... Plus in this guitar having a white fb binding, you need to keep that scheme going, use white. Cream would clash with it.... also I hate cream lol... but if this were another guitar, you do your thing, but you are kinda stuck with the white because the fretboard binding
Here you go @hypotc
The more I look at it, the more I'm glad I went with the black. White always looked cheap to me.
That looks tight I personally would still do white rings change knobs and bone nut. But hey I own a Gibson so my tastes are batty
