    I can't pick just one!
    In no particular order...Brent Mason, David Grissom, Carlos Santana, Davy Knowles--and Paul himself is no slouch!

    I'd wanted a Rickenbacker 381 since seeing one in a Rickenbacker catalog back in '68. Beautiful guitar, pricey (new ones are around $5K), and really hard to find. I found a used one in about 1988 or...

    I'd like to hear what that guitar sounds like clean. It seems like most of the demos online (and not just of this guitar, but of everything) have two gain levels--really dirty and teeth-grinding...

    So are the Pattern and the Pattern Regular the same? According to the specs, my Brent Mason has the Pattern neck, and it's fairly good-sized--not the biggest neck I've ever played, but it fills my...

    The DGT has a 22-fret neck, which puts the pickups a little further apart than they would be on a 24-fret guitar. If you have your coil splits wired up to select the inside coils (back coil of neck...

    The guy sounds like a real jacka$$. Good luck with your quest to get him out of there. He deserves to lose his job.

    When I got my Brent Mason model, I found that I couldn't get any of my straps to work. (I use Levy's leather ones.) I got a PRS strap and had the same problem--the head of the button is too large for...

    The strap buttons certainly aren't little! I had to replace them on my Brent Mason model because I couldn't get my strap on over them--and it was a PRS strap too! The problem wasn't just that the...

    It would be cool if the page layouts were more printer-friendly. Like a lot of us of a certain age, I used to collect guitar catalogs and ephemera--I still have a few--and it would be nice if I could...

    The black fingertips are probably from corrosion on your strings. Have the strings turned black? (especially the plain ones.) They should be wiped down after every playing session--that will help...

    I'm with Brad737 on this. I used to have a Gibson ES-135 in the '90's, and while I wouldn't say the P-100's sounded awful, they didn't sound like P-90's.

    Looks like maybe they were competing with themselves. The same thing happened with Gibson in the late '50's--in 1958 they introduced the ES-335/345/355 series, the Explorer and the Flying V, and the...

    Nothing will nail a Strat sound except a Strat (or something real close like a G&L Legacy). I've been a Strat and Tele player for years, but since I've got a Strat and several Teles (not all of them...

    I've been aware of PRS guitars since they hit the market in the mid-'80's. Supposedly, Paul was going for a guitar that would appeal to both Fender and Gibson players, and that sounded like something...

    What Squid said. The bridge plate should be pretty much parallel to the top, but a little gap at the back shouldn't hurt anything. My Brent Mason model came set up for a half-step up-pull on the...

    I'm a single-coil guy too, although I use humbucker sounds too, and it's nice that PRS is giving us more choices. The DC3 and the 305 are both excellent guitars, but for me the best of both worlds is...
