Anyone know if you can mount a GK-3 on a PRS with buckers and tremolo?

That Humbucker ring based install makes so much sense. Its a great idea.

Good luck with your project DW. Please shoot some photos along the way.

The guitar is set-up and waiting.  It plays like a dream actually.  The intonation is excellent and the tremolo is killer.  I think this guitar is really gonna like its new life.  I have named him "The Shadow."

Well, here he is, "The Shadow".  Complete with custom guitar to GK cable.  My phone won't get a clear upclose pic.  But it is clean and well placed for me.  The controller is easy to reach and I am really happy with the install.

Thanks guys.  I wanted the GK-3 to be a part of the guitar as much as possible.  The placement of the controller is logical to me.  I have access closer than at the strap post and it is not in the way of the tremolo.  I know I put a few holes in him, but I intend for this guitar to stay this way a long time.
Cheers!  :D

Great job! You'll have a great time playing it through the VG-8. Enjoy the journey!

Well, the VG-8 is amazing!  But I have one issue I need to resolve.  On patches that retune the high E string I hear two notes, the new retuned one and the actual string freq.  I am looking into it.  The sensitivity was easy to set and adjust as I see how I play the guitar with the VG.  But, the open g tuning has this issue on the high E string on two different patches that use the open tuning.  :-\   LOL  What fun it is to have such fantastic sounds to play with and work at playing like a string quartet and such.  Thank you  E and I'll get back when I get this one bug figured out.

Hi there. Not an expert on VG-8 but had similar experience in VG-99 which turned out to be simply me hearing the guitar acoustically. Increasing amp volume or wearing headphones solved the issue for me. I know your issue is probably not this one but thought I should mention just in case. All the best.

As a temporary test - try removing the short patch cable form the normal guitar output  to the GK-3A, and see if that "clears up" the double notes on the high E.

Tried that (though the guitar vol was all the way off and guitar was routed out of VG-8)  Might have to lower p/u?  The patch is set to 100% new note.  I pulled the p/u down a bit on high e side and it is a little better, but the orig note is still there.  Thanks for help.
