2655t that I bought because I loved the way it felt. Removed the pick guard 1st day. Had some tuning issues, even after pro setup, so I added a String Butler and then a Brick's Biggsfix. Tuning is now rock solid even with hard playing. Added chrome G knobs. Replaced BTs with Seymour Duncans but kept the toaster top covers. Also replaced jack and all pots. Pots are all push/pull and pups are wired for coil split (PRS style w/resistor) and series/parallel, so I went from 3 pickup options to 16. Also added treble bleeds. This is now the most versatile guitar I've ever played, and the least expensive I've ever purchased even with all the mods. 20211115_200333.jpg

Loving all the mods on here, and really like the fact that the streamliners offer such opportunities! Here's my effort, from head down... new gotoh locking tuners, changed knobs and pickup rings to chrome, roller bridge and straight tail (I was 50/50 about the tail but like the classic look) and had a black pickguard made. I found the original pickups a bit muddy, as others have said, so decided to try the prails, so added another pot to wire then with 2 push/pulls each, meaning you can have either HB series, p90, rail or HB parallel on each.
Pleased with it, just going to add some open pickup covers to tidy them up a bit. Very tempted to get another in the lighter wood but certainly don't have the space unfortunately.

Replaced the stock b50 with a b6c. Was initially concerned with the shallow break angle- but so far so good. Sounds great, tuning stability great, the change gave the sound slightly more clarity/chimey character. But the feel.....really smooth. It feels like butter compared to the old one.

Taped on a banjo armrest for fun to see how it would look/feel. I think I ultimately prefer without, but might be fun to tack on every now and then for a change

It's got a great look, was thinking about a pickup switch plate as well.

  • Created a custom pickguard out of clear acrylic. I scanned the original pickguard, converted it to an Inkscape file, and used it as a template to order a laser-engraved pickguard from ponoko.com. I had them engrave the logo into the underside of the pickguard.

I know it's been awhile, but I really like the clear pickguard. Do you still have the file and would you be willing to share it?

  • Added a nickel jack plate.

Which jack plate did you get?

Thanks!

Newest mods: upgraded the Bigsby to the V-cut B-6 (the arm now rests a little farther back than the licensed Bigsby so that will take getting used to), new Tusq nut and Schaller locking straps. 83AC5B06-FE71-4203-97C0-58E44DC02309.jpeg 4BEA6C4B-1A63-4A19-BFFC-E8AE245FB15B.jpeg
