I exempt status - but only until Aldy gives up his 305 Proto. :evil:
No, but it's on my short list.
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.
Here is mine from the Willcutt's Wood Library run of 10... one of my "keeper" guitars....
Yup.............. I own one.
Anybody have one of these that isn't a private stock?
Those white ones are nice...as are the fancy ones, too!
They're great sounding guitars.
One more for Hans
Not with a grinder...
Not with a file...
But on the sidewalk!
So what's the connection between this beauty and Mr. Beck?
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.
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!
