Due to the lackluster response of my other post I'm curious as to how many people own a 305?

I own one...great guitar...other than me though I've heard only a handful of people talk about them.

Hans is exempt from the question obviously because he owns a 305...then again I'm not sure the Raven qualifies as a 305 anymore.

I exempt status - but only until Aldy gives up his 305 Proto. :evil:

No, but it's on my short list.

That's right Aldy has that killer one....

The president of 513...Dancing frog has at least one I think....

Thanks for posting and not letting my thread hang out there sergio! I think you would dig it given your love of the ce's and maple necks.

I know Steve has at least one ps (which may not be around for much longer) ...I'm assuming Mark has at least one?

In terms of what would be a really practical guitar for me, I think a 305 should be at the top of my list. I am moving more towards the Fender side of things with the music I have been creating and just don't enjoy playing Strats and Teles, I love the sound but hate the ergonomics. I really have to check a 305 out!

I have a great one I picked up from Markie. Maple neck AND Ebony FB. As you would expect its bright and punchy, but it's heavier sounding than a Strat. I assume it's that mahogany body that balances it out.

Yes. It's not Private Stock but it was customized a bit by the factory.

Those white ones are nice...as are the fancy ones, too!

They're great sounding guitars.

That mod pre-dates Daniel too. His middle name is "." :)

Hey Daniel, I heard a rumor that there was video out there, somewhere, of a guy grinding that lip off the top of his Archtop.

Not with a grinder...

Not with a file...

But on the sidewalk!

So what's the connection between this beauty and Mr. Beck?

It's actually a lot more extreme than your mod Hans...I wouldn't care either way as long as it took the bite out!

I have a 25th Anniversary that hits all the bullet points: tone, feel, sustain. Just a special instrument.

I love my 305, if I could only keep 3 guitars for the rest of my life it would be the 305, my Hollowbody II SC, and my 1956 goldtop Les Paul.

I own two and bit (ones a 407). One factory and two PS. One of PRS' most underrated models.

Those are both great! The PS is killer! Color is perfect! Amazing stain! I remember the first time you posted it....


(and yes....I also have saved pictures of it!)

Mine is a 25th Anniversary... with the shadow birds which I really dig! 25ths are not hum cancelling in positions 2 & 4, just like old strats. Tone is beefier than a strat, maybe set neck helps too. It's definitely a keeper.

I've had a couple of them. The first had then513 neck and I never did get used to it so I let it go. The second was antique white with maple board and neck with dirt birds...that one was terrific and I miss it. Gas is a cruel mistress!

Ok, there's your answer. 13 people own 305s. :D

Dirty Bob

Ok...I need to sign a pledge that that I will never change the pup height on my 305 again. I sat there tweaking them for hours....they rest some place between low and medium...I was adjusting each screw with 1/8 turns and there was a noticeable difference...when I was done I was ecstatic....I'm sure tonight when I plug in I'll hate it! :bawling:

In all seriousness though I think I have it exactly right...I wish I knew what it had sounded like with factory spec height or how the PTC sets them up...but I can't imagine it getting much better than this.

i realize they are proprietary but anybody know what the 513 and 305 pickups were modeled upon? I dont remember there being much press on the pickups...the guitars yes...but all I remember is the word "proprietary" when discussing the pickup system.
