Re: Is a PRS Worth it?
Owning both an american 1992 PRS CE-24 and a 2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro I can say without debate that an american PRS is a great addition to any guitar collection and may very well become your "go to" axe. They are light, thin, contoured, stable, look incredible, the highest quality, sound great...there are NO downsides. A good LP probably has more character to it's tone, and more low-end grunt, but there may be songs in which the LP doesn't quite fit, and the PRS's sharper, slightly more focused tone may sit better in that particular mix. More focused doesn't always mean necessarily mean better, just a different character. For example, you might find a PRS blends better with a particular keyboard patch used in a certain song, or vice versa with an LP, in THAT SITUATION. It's just another tone tool in your arsenal, that's all, like an artist uses different colors and shades for different paintings. And that's good enough for a musician.
Different guitars = more tonal possibilities to "paint" your sonic landscape. PRS is a great instrument.
