Latest addition, Epiphone ES339, I'm liking it very much, I've always found Epiphone Humbucker equipped guitars a little muddy sounding, this one certainly is not.

Nice update.
I'd be interested to know how you're getting on with the PRS Standard.

I like it but to be honest still prefer my old Squier Affinty Telecaster

This little project arrived today, replacing most of the hardware, got a Graph Tech  nut coming, proper Fender switch, Wilkinson Pick ups and Wilkinson tuners, I'm currently looking for some decent pots  and a decent quality 6 saddle top load bridge.

Another NGD last week, took a punt on the Harley Benton ST-57DG Tribute, I have to say for a guitar at this price point (£150 ish shipped) there's nothing to disappoint, all I've needed to do was fit new strings as the e,b and g strings were dead and corroded (never had that before) and lowered the action slightly (personal taste).  No issues with the neck, it's straight, no high frets, no fret sprout and no sharp edges, the nut is Graph Tech and the body (Alder so they claim) is thicker than you normally find in low end Strats, this model and the 50s Tribute Siesta Red are set up with 10/46 rather than the usual 9/42 strings which was part of the attraction to me, at some point I'll probably upgrade the electrics and fit some better saddles.





As for the PRS SE, not feeling the love I'm afraid and the volume control is annoying, there's no feel to it and it's in the way, so the guitar is going up for sale.

Progress on my kit build Telecaster.   Good and bad, it's all gone together and plays however the bridge I bought is rubbish, I hadn't noticed until I got everything together, the saddles don't line up with the strings as can be seen in the pics, this is because the holes for the strings are not in line with the holes for the saddle screws and the saddles are not offset to compensate, the saddles themselves are not good either and the height adjustment screws keep loosening.  I am struggling to find a half decent bridge that is top loading so any help here would be appreciated, preferably 6 saddle and I really don't want to go down the string through route as I don't have a pillar drill.

Looks great.

Can't help with the bridge questions.

Thanks for sharing.
