Last night I was playing at The Refectory in Portland, OR with a local blues band ( and after the very first song ended, Kevin asks me to take my guitar off. I look at him with the most bewildered look, having no clue what's going on. Then he says to me again, "Go ahead, unplug it and set it down. I have something over here for you to play." I figured he was going to let me play his Gibson P90 ES-137 so I start walking over and then he says "No, over here. Go ahead and open that case there." I'm thinking to myself What The $%^&. Oh well, I'll open it. I was completely dumbfounded and couldn't even say a word. It already had a strap on it, so I pick it up and slip it over my shoulder. I walk back over to my amp and plug it in. I still haven't said a thing. The crowd is pretty much silent wondering what the hell is going on. Kevin let everybody know I couldn't speak so he asked if I could play. I gave it a strum and said "Sure thing, it's in tune." Unbeknownst to me he had played it for a bit before I got there and made sure it was all tuned up and ready to go. Then we were off to the races. For the next 3 songs I was in heaven. Something clicked and I was right in the pocket and off we went. The dance floor got full so I figure we were doing something right. Kevin kept smiling at me throughout the rest of the set and had me take most of the leads until we wrapped up the set.

Thanks AGAIN Mom and Dad!!!! I'm still in shock.

Introducing the "The Guitar Shop Bahama Mama #1"


The first thing I noticed was how light it was. Weighs in at just under 7.5 lbs. The projection of it either plugged in or acoustic is amazing. Possibly the loudest guitar I've heard acoustically. The 53/10 pickups seem to be a perfect match for this wood combo. I've yet to explore it in it's entirety since I just got it last night, so there will be more to come. The thing that hit me was how easy it was to fret and bend. It has thicker fretwire than what I'm used to, but WOW did it make a difference. Takes little effort to play, almost like it plays itself. It has a nice thick neck, which I am very used to - I hate thin necks. The guitar has a chime to it that I've never heard before. I first noticed it when I played it unplugged, almost like a piano sound. Very hard to explain. All I know is that the crowd loved the way it sounded and many people came up to me later to comment on it. That has never happened before, at least not like this. I will add more as I have more time with it. Still need to check out the split coil sounds and the trem.

Sweet mother of mercy, the flame on that neck.

I've been playing a lot of vintage guitars recently and I thought I was lucky and there was nothing left for me to experience. Now I know I shall never rest until I am the owner of a flame-necked PRS.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

It's not too late to repair the damage. An apology goes a long way.
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.

Dude. I love the detail of the wood. The fretboard is gorgeous and the flame is sweet. Not keen on the colour or the layout of the controls though. A bronze would be beautiful. HNGD
If i owned a guitar like that i would keep it in a glass case and play it once a month.

It's too beautiful. Congrats

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.
