    I think PRS could change your mind with two words. Faux binding. It seems like a small detail, but I'll bet if they were to finish it with faux binding, it would make the Custom much more attractive.

    I believe you are right Paul. It's not that a figured piece of wood resonates better, but it resonates differently. It adds a different dimension of tonal character because of the way the way the...

    I think the difference between the SE's and the S2's, and I could be wrong about this, is that the S2's have a slab of figured maple and the SE's have a figured veneer over a slab of maple. Since you...

    I believe the Starla does come with a stop-tail option. Maybe not though. I'm probably thinking of the Starla and not the S2 Starla.

    I don't think anyone will argue with the fact that the guitars that come out of the Maryland factory are all top quality instruments. The craftsmanship and attention to detail of the core lineup are...

    From what I gather based on the information provided at the S2 site, it sounds like the "S2" parts are probably overseas produced parts made to core lineup specifications. They were up front in...

    There was a second one not shown in the picture. It was to the left of the one you see on the wall. In the movie, it pans across it kind of quickly, but it looks like a CE 24 with a Maple fretboard...

    A Blast From The Past (Or Future?)

    Here's a photo from the 1990 release "Back To The Future Part III". I wasn't much aware of PRS guitars during that time, but I was recently watching the movie and saw this:...

    Yes, there is a difference in tone between the Maple neck and the Mahogany neck. I could bore you by making an attempt to describe the differences to you with vague expressions like "darker",...

    Nevermind. I looked at a picture of a 20th that I owned previously, and it has a black plastic tip on the trem arm. I'm not sure why this one is brass. Here's the one I owned before:

    The trem arm tip is brass. I'm not sure, but isn't that something they did on all the 20th anniversary trem guitars? It really does sound great. I was honestly very surprised at how good it sounds...

    NGD, kind of. Back in the PRS family

    Picked up a 20th anniversary CE 24 Natural Mahogany yesterday. I've owned some PRS guitars in the past, but have been away for a while. Traded a couple of my guitars for it. It came in used to my...

    Hey man, I understand that you think it's a luxury, but the reality is that your band is going to sound like crap unless you have someone running sound. You need someone who can make corrections to...

    Your amp settings should not matter as the room fills up. That should be a function of the sound man correcting for variations in the room. One thing that I do is use my amp basically as a monitor. I...
