View Full Version : If only there could be one....

12-20-2012, 06:40 AM
Many of you know my situation. It's coming to be a real possiblity that I may have to sell all but one PRS. I may even have to sell that. So, if YOU had these, which would you keep? All but the ME1 have dropped in the market pretty bad, but that's just the way it is. SO...in this time of $h1t, let's lighten the mood and have a poll. It may all be moot, since after all, tomorrow is the last day of the world.....
Some have sentimental value. I didn't list a home-made tele I have or my Steve Stevens because I could never get anything out of them. Stevie's been beaten & broken and he's better of staying home.

Sorry to hear this Chris. I'm guessing Norma would be your keeper?

Norma flew the coop in favour of Abby.

Whoops - I meant Abby!

I know how you enjoy using a trem. Has to be a trem guitar that stays.

12-20-2012, 08:19 AM
Chris - I voted for Abby based on two reasons. 1; in my opiniion the Siggy is the most versatile guitar with a great tone ( even though you can't change the pups :biggrin: )
2; When I first joined the forum that was one of the 1st guitars I remember seeing plus the pic of it with your daughter is priceless.

My second would be a toss up between the NOS ME or the TGS Wood Library both beautiful guitars. Good luck with everything :top:

Keep the obeche!

12-20-2012, 08:55 AM
I dig that Sig Limited (Abby), Chris!


12-20-2012, 08:59 AM
They're all so nice, Chris!

I'd keep the NOS ME1 simply because they aren't making any more of them. I'd guess everything else could be replaced.

12-20-2012, 09:12 AM
Signature Limited!

12-20-2012, 09:12 AM
MEs can be replaced too, it may just take a while to find one for sale.

I'd keep the one you've bonded with the most - whichever you usually grab first...

12-20-2012, 09:58 AM
I voted Eagle (and a nice one it is), but damn, what a choice to make. :(:dontknow:

Chris if you are looking at this from keeping a guitar solely for functional purposes and looking to raise cash the guitar I would keep would be either the gold or white DGT.

if value matters in the long run then I would try to hold on to the modern eagle...but keep in mind you are actually going to play it if its your only guitar...which again leads me back to keeping one of the DGTs.

best of luck! I know this cant be easy.
That's exactly what I was thinking. You're raising cash, so sell the pretty faces, the ones that will bring the most $$ and keep the one that's all about function - DGT. Whichever one sounds better to your ears.

I'd probably most like Rosie or the ME, but I picked Abby for you.

12-20-2012, 10:50 AM
Ouch. I do not envy the position you are in to have to be getting rid of some lovely guitars!!!

12-20-2012, 10:52 AM
I voted DGT std, mostly because that's my tonal preference of those listed. But if I were you, I would pick whichever guitar is most inspiring to play to you...that tops any value, versatility, or beauty. I know that's a tough choice, but usually everyone has one that bring a little more emotion from them while playing.

12-20-2012, 10:59 AM
Abby - no question

12-20-2012, 11:40 AM
Dirty K. It's probably the least expensive of your "real" PRS, sell the slowest, and would compliment Stevie pretty well. I'd sell all the ones from T.S.T.B.E.W. and look forward to starting fresh.
Sorry about all this buddy.

12-20-2012, 12:49 PM
Thanks guys. It IS a hard choice. I know the ones that'll bring the most cash. Abby is probably the one I've bonded with the most so if I can keep a purty one, it'll be her. In the end, it's just all stuff. Nice stuff, but still just stuff.
I just sold another gtr today. Probably putting my treasured Green 25th Anny 50 watter up next. Kinda hoping the STBEW would just let us go to mediation & get this over with. I don't see that happening any time soon though....

Hey, keep the polls going. I'm enjoying seeing what you all would do or what you would suggest I should do.

12-20-2012, 08:23 PM
In the end, it's just all stuff. Nice stuff, but still just stuff.

I uttered those very words about 16 years ago when the neighbor called me at work to tell me my EX was emptying out the house while I was at work...
Sorry for the troubles, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. Stuff is just stuff.

You daughter is the only thing that matters in all of this...
Peace to you, Chris

Abby. :five:

12-24-2012, 11:20 PM
Voted for the ME1.

12-24-2012, 11:36 PM
Abby. :five:

I do love me some Abby!! Thanks for making that happen Ron!

12-25-2012, 03:05 AM
For me it would be either the ME or Abby. You have already said you have bonded with Abby the most so therein lies the answer. Sorry to hear of your woes and I hope you are able to find a way to keep your top 3 at least but keep your chin up and your fingers pickin because you provide so many with so much!

12-25-2012, 07:50 AM
I'd say Abby.
