Finally, my first real NGD post. I've been shopping for a new guitar for what seems like months now, and I went into a guitar center in Atlanta hoping to try some les pauls over the weekend. I told the salesman kind of what I was looking for and the kind of stuff I played, and after a little while he brought me this out of the platinum room. The first thing I said is...."that is way over my budget". Turns out, this guitar is a 1998 model, in immaculate condition. Not a single ding on the body or neck, the case is in perfect condition, heck, it still has the "factory equipped with ddarrio strings" tag and all original paperwork. I fell absolutely in love.

As far as the review, this is the best playing guitar I have ever held. It's a PRS, not a lot more to say. I'm pretty sure it has the dragon II pickups, and they scream with harmonics. Plugged into my Vox the sound has so much more depth than my part-o-caster. It really shines through something like a JCM800 to a 1960A cabinet. Really easy to get lots of thick Alex Lifeson tones, ala Limelight, working man, etc. It's just an incredible instrument. I did not even consider that I might be able to walk out of that store with a real USA made PRS. I'm beyond ecstatic.

Now for the pics, sorry for the quality, I took them with my iphone and then photobucket compressed them, I'll get some more when I get home with a real camera in the setting sun to show just how deep that flametop really is.

very nice indeed
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Where is the pickup selector switch?


Ha! The back knob is actually a 5 way rotary switch. One of the unique things about PRS guitars.

natural finish with a top like that is just pure sexay.

also, the middle position of the selector for the vintage vibe tonez.

HNGD!
