I had a PRS from the 1990s but the neck profile was wrong for me -'wide thin'

But now I have this:

My PRS Custom 24 LTD 10 Top Fire Red Burst with 57/08s.

It's an awesome guitar. All I've done is change the rotary for 3 way/push pull for faster pup changes. The 57/08s are my favorite humbuckers.

Strat guy all the way but my PRS guitars have a special place and I do love them !!



Gorgeous - all of them!!!!!!!!! Jealous.

Here's a "Tone Shootout" with an original 1958 Les Paul vs. a brand new PRS SC-58. David Grissom played the Les Paul first, then the PRS. I think that PRS sounds great.

I have the SE Santana also. I love that thing. Sounds great. I also have a PRS SE Singlecut. It is a different feel and sound from my Gibson LP Studio, but I like it too.

Over the past year, I've been much more into my Les Pauls, but my PRS Custom 22 would be the last guitar I would ever part with.

From the first day I owed it, it has always felt right and sounded great. Being a lefty, it would also be very hard to replace. PRS can go for years without producing lefties, so the pickings would be slimmer.

So, yes....I still like my PRS. A lot.

Still love my 1992 PRS CE-24, but when I bought an LP Trad Pro in 2009 it was a serious tone upgrade.

These discussions don't exist outside of PRS. When was the last time you saw a four page debate on Jackson? Ibanez? Schecter? I think the fact the PRS can generate this kind of discussion is telling.

Absolutely! :thumb:

And that discussion will no doubt intensify with the new S2 PRS range that will directly compete with the Gibsons Studio range.

Last time I checked, there were an ample amount of used SE 245's for sale at Musician' Friend. Not quite my cup of tea.

I like my Custom 24 more than my 68RI, but I still like my 68RI a lot.

If I was forced to choose, I think I'd keep my PRS over the Gibson.

I'm not sure I can add anything else to what has been said already, but I certainly love my PRS P22. It has 57/08 and a piezo and I think it's one of the most musical guitars I have ever played.

When people say PRS guitars lack soul, they're actually saying 'my playing sucks, and lacks soul'.

Gibson should take a long, hard look at the quality, craftsmanship, and pride that every PRS guitar has.

Sweet lord, that is a work of art...I think I'm going to cry!!:shock:

Look at that boatwake...

I Love my PRS too. The Dirty 100 gets about as much use as the LP's. The PS Santana, maybe not as much.

What's that? You want to see? :naughty:

Pauls 'Dirty 100', 1 piece top! An amazing guitar. Just wow. (59/09's)
