    Many moons ago when I was studying classical, my teacher had me play (mostly scales, sometimes pieces) with the left thumb completely off the neck, just held under the fretboard. He was forcing me to...

    I can only say "he didn't at the clinic a few years ago" - I asked him whether he messed with it at all when switching between bridge and neck pickups, he said it was pretty much just left on 10 all...

    You might notice more volume drop on the earlier DGT's, there were a few resistors added to the tone knob later that help even the output between the humbucker and single-coil modes.

    The 57/08's are my absolute favorite of the PRS line, and can handle anything for me outside of high gain settings (but that's not what I play most of the time). I have some very early ones in a...

    Here is my Shawn&Skitch refinish - not as fancy as the others, but it is still one of my favorites.

    Love it. The PG is one of my favorites, although the brushstroke inlays are a little polarizing I'd expect these will sell fairly quickly.

    That color grows on me more every time I see it. One or two more like that guitar and it might be my favorite finish!

    Congrats on the guitar, definitely do not put anything in writing.

    Great choice! The neck pickup split gets some great sounds, combine it with the bridge on full and you're close to heaven. Enjoy!

    What amp are you using, and is it loud enough? DG isn't exactly 'whisper quiet' when he plays.

    There shouldn't be a lack of 'punch' from the pickups - Is the guitar absorbing a little extra...

    I've found the OCD to be pretty transparent as well, just dial the gain down and the volume up. The Timmy is another option. I haven't tried the TC Electronic Spark booster, but I've read good things...

    I don't actually have any decent pics of this one, somehow... mine is a 10-top with the IRW and 53/10's. I'd probably prefer the 57/08's but since the 53/10's are hard to come by these days, I'll...

    I have 11's on mine, but mostly out of laziness - I would have to find my screwdriver if I want to change string gauges. Most of my guitars have 10's (a 245 has 11's as well) - I've tried a lot of...

    This just screams "DGT" to me. You might want to change the strings down to 10's for some of the faster music in there, but the DGT excels at Classic Rock tones (among others) and with 2 volume knobs...

    The volume knob closest to the bridge is for the bridge pickup, the next one, further from the neck, is the neck pickup. I think Grissom called the bridge pickup the 'money' pup or the 'business'...
