When I think of metal guitars, I immediately go to Jackson and ESP. Those are what I remember people playing............when I was angry and listening to that stuff :)

Well this is certainly an entertaining thread I'll have to say. And I've really nothing of value to add because it's all been said. Be that as it may, I hate Mesa amplifiers. OK. So hate is a strong word. Let's use strongly dislike. I'm getting older now and don't have the time required to dial one of those things in. Too many knobs. :laugh2::laugh2:

Ola is popular on YT, so I'm sure that's helping. Not to mention they are good looking guitars with nice features. I really like the beveled edges on the V. Mahogany body/maple set neck is a winner, so are jumbo SS frets.

The Natural Aged Distressed Type A is looking pretty sick.....



I want this one which was just announced for preorder:

I felt exactly that way until I tried a Triple Crown, I really love that amp. It's very intuitive to dial in, too.

Anyway I've been boxing, moving, and unpacking for more than a week now, and we have millions of things that need to be done in the new house, so unless I find a killer deal I'm probably not getting a new guitar any time soon. I'm thinking either a PRS Custom 24, PRS 513, or Mayones Regius. It might not happen too soon, but one day...

I want a 6-string, but look at this beautiful Mayones on Reverb right now:


Damn that thing is absolutely gorgeous!

Ive had two PRS Custom 24s. They were without question phenomenal instruments. But I never bonded with either one. I don’t wanna bag on them here but the word ‘sterile’ comes to mind.

I get that everyone prefers different things, but I never found what anyone else may have considered as "sterile" about PRS guitars. Despite their product placement leaning towards low-gain blues-rock styles at the moment, at least among their core models, they can still fill the modern or aggressive niches just fine with nothing really lacking.

I always used to feel the same way, but lately for some reason I've been feeling differently for some reason. I'll just have to try some out and see.
