Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. I only started a few months ago so I still suck. I bought a cheap Washburn starting out, but I just ordered a Bernie Marsden edition that should be here by Tuesday . I'm hoping its the first of many. My wife tells me if I learn to play pretty good that I could get a US model. That's enough incentive for me to learn right there.

Welcome Big Mard! What a great choice for a first PRS. Lots of love for this model.
Hmmm Big Mard... BM... Bernie Marsden...???
Play lots and show us a pice when you get her!

Howdy! I haven't played a Bernie yet, but they look extremely cool... good choice!

Check out Mike Garvey's Bernie on this thread a few posts down, he's got one with a gorgeous top and new pups:


Keep toying around with trading in my SE 245 for a Bernie, very similar but the Bernie's such more a looker, and I love the bound neck!

thanks to all. My Bernie is supposed to be delivered tomorrow and the wait is driving me crazy.

Welcome BM!! Obviously you've never been ribbed for having the initials 'BM' before, so I won't start. ;) And that absolutely doesn't reflect on the BM model because it is a righteous axe! You're gonna love the way you play. Congrats and welcome. :cool:

I have a BM...It is lord of all it surveys...I give it Burnt offerings during the Solstice. I was just a working class stiff until my Bernie came in.. Now Im the coolest kid (47) on the block.. Like the old '70's commercial where the kid had the snowman that made sno-cones!!! Enjoy!!!
