So I'm still suffering from a bad case of GAS and last weekend traded my 20th Anniversary PRS Custom 24 10-top in Mateo Blue for a beautiful 2013 Lester Traditional in Chicago Blue. As I told the owner of the Lester that my PRS was worth quite a bit more than his Lester Traditional he threw in a mint Sparrow 335, also in blue, and another mint Michael Kelly Patriot Supreme, all with their original hard cases. The Patriot is a really nice piece of work with 2 x Rockfield Humbuckers and a gorgeous flamed body; the output from those two humbuckers is so powerful it is the first guitar I've played where 10 becomes more like 11 as per Spinal Tap. if I knew nothing of Lesters, PRS and high end USA Strats and could have only one guitar the Patriot could actually qualify as a guitar for life. The Sparrow 335 is absolutely beautiful and well made and after fitting a set of 9s and the appropriate saddle and bridge adjustments it plays well with a sort of ultra clean early sixties pop flavour. This particular Sparrow with its stainless stell frets and Kent Humbuckers was made in Canada by a now defunct company which started out with all the best intentions as so many do. Anyway, the new blue Lester is just absolutely the dogs danglers and everything I had hoped she would be and more; my PRS was good and pretty to boot but not even close to the new love affair I have with my new blue Lester. I look forward to my fellow MLPeers comments.
