Only one? What kind of a sicko ARE you? :cry:

:lol:

Probably my Swamp Ash Special - because it is the most versatile. It has been Artist Tweaked, upgraded to uncovered 53/10's (ka-BOOM!), and a Mann trem. I keep it set up with .11's. This guitar is a monster.

Oh, and I play hard rock, disco funk, soul blues, and some alt rock.

Sicko, right :?

Here is my small family

and yes I agree with you Hans the SAS is very versatile == yours, with the 5 pos switch, probably more than mine ( and I love the Birds on the neck )

and putting a Tom Holmes set on it, I gain Top Humbuckers sounds ... but loose the coil taps :(

... but anyway, I prefer my McCarty ... euh which one will I choose !

Impossible answer ! hahaha

Well that's just silly.
I worked a long time to have more than I need.
Maybe a swamp eagle with full braz neck, pickups that would convert from a 3 pack of NF to siggy with a sideways glance.

I find the SAS, HB with piezo and siggy the most versatile.

Well, as I almost have three of them, I'll go with the DGT. I love the dual volumes, neck shape, and the 6100 frets. Just doesn't get much better!

If I really had to it would be quite easy: either keep my '02 McRosie or find a P22IRW that could outperform it (which seems quite unlikely, but you never know) :twisted:

My favorite PRS would be the Santana 1 platform....and my favorite Santana 1 would be my PS #3340....the current 2012 calendar guitar for April...and the very first "Jade Glow" created in coordination with the PS team headed by Paul Miles and with Brian Meader serving as constant liaison to the production:

I'm with you on that one - the SAS is just an incredibly versatile guitar! Here's mine (I'm afraid you'll have to live with someone else's photo of me playing the thing cause I'm a horrific photographer...):

I'd have to go with a McCarty, my first PRS love.

McCarty standard. I play mostly heavier rock - AIC, TOOL, STP, Sevendust with a little blues mixed.

Hollowbody w/Piezo. IMO, it's the most versatile guitar they make...

Custom 24 with 5-way blade. I really dig the semi-hollow ltd's and the studios (either would be a close 2nd), but my go-to is always the Cu24.

Only ONE PRSi????

That's INSANE!

VHTStark

Only one? Definitely one of my singlecuts! Maybe not the most versatile PRS, but they fit me like a glove and do what I need them to do. They inspire me to create music, that is the most important thing!

For music....I guess you would say I am a "metal" guy....but I also play/have played some punk, hard rock, blues and a little jazz.

ME1 for me.

It encompasses everything that is good about PRS and if you can have only one you got to go for a braz neck and an incredible top!

Strippers amaze me all the time... :lol:

The stripped 58 seems to be a hell of a guitar - if I did not have my SC245 I would certainly have a look at it, in Angry Larry.

Old school PRS Custom 22. Just the perfect guitar for me.

This sums up my feelings, and my DGT situation, perfectly.

The discontinued early EG Bolt On 3 with triple Fralin Dominoes & Maple top ...
If I can ever find one again ... lol

For me it is and always will be a Custom 24. Make it a W/T Emarld green Flamed top and it might just be this one...

Sorry, gotta choose two:

Cu24 with VB/HFS, std. neck, 5-way rotary....Super versatile, every tone selection great.

Santata (Brazilian preferably!)....Not super versatile, more of a one trick pony, but it's one helluva great trick!

Even if pressed, I couldn't pick one over the other.

I could live with my Singlecut :D

What does not change the fact that I also need a Siggy, SC58, Singlecut Satin with soapbars, something with narrowfields and last but not least a Dirty 100 :roll: :lol:

Original, solid body, #7 neck and bridge, SINGLECUT.
They are my all-time favorite PRS.

For versatility Cu22 trem with 59/09's 3 way push/pull...you can pretty much cover all the bases with that...I also find a cu22 trem with original dragons and a 5 way rotary is pretty darn close...

For pure tonal bliss...dirty 100 with 59/09's or a modern eagle With 59/09's.

CU24.............. I'll be needing that in a PS though 8-)

I think the McCarty with P90 is the best you can get, but I would be happy with some of the other models as well I think.

My single cut Hollowbody II with the 57/08's, I can play pretty much everything but metal (not my thing). People who haven't played the PRS Hollowbody guitars are usually amazed at the acoustic sound when switching to the piezo. Acutally yesterday I was playing on the front pickup with the tone rolled off and was getting a very nice jazz box tone, you can cover a lot of sonic territory with the HBII.

Brian
05-03-2012, 12:26 AM
Probably a Ted... or maybe a semi-hollow McCarty or Hollowbody I/II. Or maybe an Archtop.

If I had to slim down to one it would have to be the Cu24AP. Thank goodness I don't have too!

For me it's the DGT. Love the neck, love the feel, love the tones. Great having two volume controls. Awesome.
