Anyway, I guess it'll please you LP lovers to know that PRS seems to be re-introducing the SC 245:
http://www.prsguitars.com/sc245/

And the links to the SC 58 and Stripped 58 have been removed under the current production models.


If this is old news, I'll go and cry in my corner

Oh and nice LANEY up there, glad you listened to me?

Ya man its pretty cool.

The clean isn't as good as the Fender (haven't heard one as good yet anywhere though, I really lucked out with the Super 60), but the overdrive is a lot better, very Marshall and from the ones I played recently to compare they are more like the old DSLs than the new ones are!

I may well get an ABY switch at some point to use them both at the same time. I did send you a PM when I got it .

Thanks again.

Shit man. That is nice. I nearly chose that colour on the Traditional over mine but I had just got rid of the Studio Faded in that colour so I think it would have just felt like a betrayal or something.

Um...was that actually regarding the Rebel Yells? It was a tad unclear, given what you quoted.

yeah i have a soft spot for wine red.

the late 1999 and early 2000 standards came with some stupidly good looking tops in my opinion.

oh well, i was on a quest for a custom shop 1960 reissue and i got one. after a while, i decided to move on to something else and sold it to a guy that sold it to mmoltertx. he now has my old 1960 RI prototype.

i have two MIJ les pauls now, a 1979 Tokai Les Paul Reborn and a 1977 Burny FLG70 that i had refinished in ebony.

i'm very happy with the MIJ guitars but i'm sure if i find the right early 2000s gibson i'll find a way to pull the trigger again.

here's the tokai before i swapped out the pups and saddles.

I love that Silverburst finish. Almost snagged an RD in that finish, those are gone, now I'm looking at a Silverbust Firebird.

i like them a lot. i had one but kept trading up.

the stock pups were a lot better than i expected honestly.

i think he's high at $700 though. I think the ones that are left in stores are like $599? i could be wrong about that but i'm almost certain you can score a new one for about that.



call my buddy Eli at 847-253-3151. make sure you ask for Eli please. see what he says.
