I got a stock Sq Bronco Affinity for $75.00.
I put tuners from a Peavey Fury on it, along
with GHS 45-95 round wound and that
improved the playing a lot, and it stays in
tune real well. It came with 40-90 strings.
I filed and dressed the frets.
I had a B&G Passive F split pole P bass
pickup that was not in use. B&G is an
Indonesian company that makes pickups
for PRS along with others.
The B&G pup has shielded wire on the
hot lead. That along with some shielding
I did makes this Bronco totally quiet
In-spite of what others say, the intonation
is not a problem. The only string that is off
is the "E" string. It is good up to the 9th or
10th fret and that is fine because I never
play the "E" string up that high anyway.
Each part of the pickup is centered on the
two assigned strings. Strings all have even
response and it sounds really good.
I bought a black pickguard and made a
Total cost of mods are pickguard $11.50
plus $20 for strings.
This is one of the most successful mods
I have done.
The results are wonderful,
