Building A Much Better
I am exceptionally proud of how this guitar turned out !!!!
This is actually the original PRS 10 Top with the original
We removed the original neck by heating the glue until it came out easily.
We custom made a Brazilian Rosewood neck that is very thin & easy to play.
This guitar came out awesome.
This guitar came out sounding at least 40% better than it did
The original neck was glued in, with the addition of the direct coupled bolted
in new neck
This guitar came out sounding like one of the best PRS guitars I have ever
Another reason it sounded better was we removed the poly finish from the back of
This was the perfect guitar to
do these modifications to !!!!
When we received this guitar it
sounded poor, it had no sustain and the tone was dead.
By converting this to bolt in we
eliminated all the glue that was choking the tone !!
The neck on this guitar is now very thin and extremely fast !!!
It plays as smooth as warm butter.
This is the perfect guitar for
someone who plays & doesn't care about originality !!
Thoughts & Commentary from Ed Roman
Before the customer started this project, I
advised him against it, I told him that it would make a lot more
sense to simply buy a Quicksilver new rather than try to
Quicksilverize his PRS. Well The customer
being a stubborn individual was Hell Bent on making his PRS sound
better, He had owned it for years and was very unhappy with all the
previous modifications. He was in search of the perfect tone. In a
way I can't blame him, if he had simply traded his PRS in and bought
a Quicksilver he could have saved several thousand dollars. If he
had bought a Quicksilver in the first place he could have saved
$5,000.00 over the course of several years. Effectively he
would have ended up with the same thing.
Even though this guitar turned out to be one of the magical sounding
ones there is also the element of luck.
On his we got very lucky. The original mahogany body turned out to
be better than 95% of the PRS guitars we have seen and of course
removing the finish on the back really helped the sound immensely.
We learned a very valuable lesson doing his guitar and from now on
all of our customers are going to benefit from what we learned.
I believe that besides
converting this guitar to a bolt on the removal of the finish on the
back was the actual catalyst that made this guitar sound so good.
We are now offering
Quicksilver guitars in what we call a 8020 finish. Simply put
you can now buy a Quicksilver with a glossy top and an oil finished
This is a very cost
effective modification for a PRS, we are already doing these 3070
mods several other PRS guitars and I have done it to my own
Quicksilver guitar. The difference is quite noticeable.
