    As a big fan of shell pink or grandma or any other name that is awesome! Old birds look great on it. I'm happy to see you have a pink DGT again. Congrats!

    That's the stuff man! Is it me or is there an increased interest in semi-hollow/trem PRS's? For me it started with Tag's praises for the design. Seeing your new one is really exciting. Congrats and...

    You know, when I play my own PS I'm in hog heaven. It's everything I could ever want in a guitar in terms of feel, sound, and of course looks. Then I look at this thread and all I think about is how...

    I can relate- my first few years with PRS guitars were all 80's models. Eventually I got a used PS Custom 24. Played it for over a year 2-3 nights a week. One night a guy asked if he could try it as...

    That idea of a more portable 1x12 version of the HX/DA is very appealing, as long as it wouldn't sacrifice too much in the way of tone? Lugging my 4x10 combo last night through the labyrinth to where...

    Michael- good stuff man. I live 10 minutes from there. Good idea to do both Cascade and Porter while you were up there! It can be tempting to call it good enough after one of them. Thanks for sharing.

    Congrats to you and your daughter Dane! I live 30 minutes away...drove through there yesterday in fact. And yet I never thought of how close the name of that town is to a certain guitar company that...
