Need some opinions. I'm a beginner to intermediate player, mainly slow blues BB King style. I'm tired of my cheap solid body and want to step up a bit. I've narrowed it down to a PRS Bernie Marsden and Epiphone Lucille. I've tried both but none of the local stores have the amp I am using, a Peavey Delta Blues 115. It's a toss up on playability, which do you folks think will match up best with my amp? One side question is opinions on which one has the more durable gold hardware?

The Lucille. Easily. And not just cos he died last week, either. Being a semi hollow is a bonus for you and it'll sound a whole heck of a lot warmer and fuller through a Delta, plus the tone control on it makes it really versatile too. Which did you like more honestly when you played them?

I'd compare the lucille to the se zach myers versus the bernie marsden.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

I preferred the Lucille as I was able to borrow one and play it thru my old Marshall before I got the Delta Blues, guess that answers my question. Still somewhat concerned about gold hardware.

Lol, don't be. It'll be many, many years before it wears. And by that point, if you still have the thing, it'll add to the effect and charm of being an old instrument you've had for eons.

+1. the zach myers is a nice guitar.

but buy the one that feels best to you.

Plus, worn gold hardware can be replaced with new gold hardware, if needs must.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

not a big deal. guitars are meant to be used. as danny said, if you are that concerned, ten years down the road you can replace it. but i wouldn't let it be a deal breaker.

i prefer my Sublime Chieftain to both. :shurg:

i'd consider an Epi dot if the gold hardware is an issue. will get you the sound you want and are nice guitars. i'd also look at some of the Ibanez artcore series guitars as they have some models that would suite that style as well.
