    Drilling would be required. I have attached mine without drilling. Posting photos in a moment with my other final mods.

    Nice! I don't know what it is but the PRS Core Knobs are fantastic and really class up a guitar.

    I ordered them from Amazon, but did pay the PRS price for the Knobs.

    Tuners are Hipshot GridLock 4x3 with open back. Got them from Reverb.

    Not an SE model (I assume). But does anyone have any good pictures of this (what I assume to be private stock) PRS 7 String used by Troy McLawhorn, currently in Evanescence? It looks red but its hard to tell from the lighting.

    Hot damn, that guitar made my jaw hit the floor! Also, I really dig Troy's work in his old band Dark New Day...kinda funny that Evanescence now has their guitarist and drummer playing for them. :lol:

    Saw Alter Bridge last night and Mark Tremonti uses a SE Custom 7 on the new 7 string songs like Show Me A Leader, however it looks like its been into PRS for some work, it clearly has some pickup and electrical work done on it, he uses the stock hardware by the looks of things.

    Thats a good thing to know. Sadly when i was buying my 7 i went the Ibanez route as it was a better spec for the same money.

    ^ kinda weird because he has at least one US 7-string (a single cut). What finish was his SE7?

    He has only one at the moment, and its the proto as far as I know. He is awaiting 2 production models coming out (S2 Tremonti 7s???/Starting a rumour) and I'm guessing he will put one into each of his rigs.

    It was in the standard black finish.

    Must say I am pleased to see him using one, as the SE (Korean) range is a brilliant range of instruments, I loved my Tremonti SE when I had it until I could afford my Core Tremonti Model and love my Mushok SE.

    ^ cool. I really like the SE7. Well-made guitar that looks cool and plays great. What's not to like.

    Has anyone done a hipshot bridge replacement on theirs?

    I specifically need to know if its just and extra screw, or is it a fill old holes and do a re drill?

    Also I am tuning to drop a with a 64 gauge string. What gauge is anyone using with a drop tuning. I just had the nut reset (it was lifting off the neck) and filed out to fit the 64. I am wondering if i need to go up to a 70+

    Its only step down.

    Also... at this point if its NOT an SE... it IS private stock.

    They are all custom orders... which pretty much makes it private stock. Or at least a made for artist custom.

    I use a 68 for G#, holds tune well and intonates well too. Had to screw the saddle almost all the way back though to get it intonated ^^

    I did the same thing with mine from an intonation perspective.
