Figured while I was here in South Korea I'd pick up a cheapo guitar. Decided on a PRS style guitar. Found one this past weekend that sounded good and took it home. I'm giving it the nickname because the top looks a little like a bengal tiger to me. And the pups ain't bad at all. Granted I plan on doing some upgrades to it. Here's what I got planned...
-Replace tuners with Schaller locking...mainly because I already have these and don't feel like drilling a hole for Sperzels.
-Get an SD Liberator for the volume pot so I can try that out and change pups easier.
-Pups...either SD Pearly Gates or Alnico 2 Pro for both bridge and neck or a combination of em. Any thoughts?
-Pup rings-either the Shadow Tuner ring or SD Triple Shot pup ring.
-And last but not least I'm gonna grab a Cliplock leather strap because I like Cliplock straps and I wanna use leather on this guitar.
-Once I get back to Oki with all my tools I'll get this properly setup and all that jazz but for now...it'll work.
And one more note...the place where I bought this as soon as I said I'll take the 3 workers went about getting the guitar tuned and action adjusted because it was a little out of whack being on the rack for a few weeks. Why can't this happen in the US? I also got a good gig bag, strap, strings, picks and string winder. Granted that's not to unexpected but considering I was able to get the guitar for $400...I think I did rather good.
But anyway...on to the pics.
Nice! Like the tiger eye finish... And you got nice feet!
