    The problem with PRS guitars and collectability is that swine Paul that keeps making his guitars better every year.

    Because of that, your old guitars will generally lose value as compared with...

    I think y'all are crazy.

    When did we start getting mad at sales guys for trying to save the customer money?

    It's usually when they go the other way that I get pissed.

    My first guitar was a Mexi Strat. And it had issues. It took three luthiers to turn it into a useful guitar.

    My second guitar was a PRS Mira. And that guitar was better. Yes the tonality between...
  4. I'm with you, but this is a VERY unpopular...

    I'm with you, but this is a VERY unpopular opinion around here. They take wood more seriously around here than the Pope takes Catholicism.

    As it happens I had occasion to ask PRSh this exact...

    Sigh.

    One simply does not know what to say at such a revealing post.

    I didn't say not at all, but I would say very much less.

    Here's an interesting experiment you can do yourself. While you are playing some chords on your guitar, have your significant other wrap...

    What can you mean?

    I found it on the internet, so I know it has to be true.
  8. Boy, I would say that we have a pretty good...

    Boy, I would say that we have a pretty good handle on sound. It may be for certain kinds of sounds there is a precision to human hearing not available from most test equipment. And there are all...

    I'm not really following you here. You can always remove frequencies later, but if they're not there to begin with you lose flexibility.

    If you want to make a specific sound like say the sound of...

    I have to part company here. I cannot imagine anyone going through the trouble (and risk) of obtaining a Strad just to prove the obvious: that different people like different things.

    As a...

    You probably should not have been told what to listen for. To some extent, doesn't this make it a bad example of a double blind test?

    Certainly an experienced ear should be able to hear...

    Maybe.

    Here's a video of Les Paul himself talking about his invention of the electric guitar ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhdAWQaEsjA ). He says that his first experiment was putting a single...

    I don't actually disagree with much of what you said. My Luddite reference was actually meant to be tongue-in-cheek and not a little provocative, although I do think there is at least a small measure...

    This is pretty much what I would expect.



    And this is what makes it so difficult to know what the truth is. So many people are so certain that they cannot be fooled in this way, but just about...

    I have mixed feelings about this. Part of me looks forward to the possibilities of the new. I've seen a couple of really interesting carbon fiber guitars that are different and flat cool. On the...

    I always anger people when this subject comes up.

    But.

    The whole point of the electric guitar is to take the wood out of it.

    When they first amplified acoustic-type guitars, the sound from...

    One of the things this story highlights is that Paul is not just some spokesperson that doesn't know what he's talking about.

    He signed my Mira in Houston and when I asked him how to preserve the...

    I don't think so...

    Huh?

    What's pi got to do with three hundred and fourteen? Pi is a little over 3, silly.

    Nice guitar, though.

    Those aren't "dirt" birds. They're "mocha" birds.

    Anyone figure out what they're made out of?

    I have the exact same problem with my Mira. Took it to my local luthier who took a file to the bridge and very carefully filed it ever so little. This helped it but didn't make it go away. He didn't...
