    NGD Now! Tried a PRS for the 1st Time

    WOW! I am sold on PRS now. I recently played a SC245 in a vintage guitar shop. My first time trying a PRS as I was captivated by the Birds inlay. I am totally blown away... The feel of the neck and ease of playability, the great tone, the beautiful wood top (A very light Blonde see-thru Maple finish)... then they pulled out a second one stored in the case that they had me try (Tobacco burst I suppose). Having had a long-time metal shred guitarists background with having owned many Ibanez, ESP and Jackson guitars, I think I know what my next purchase will be as I've been wanting something more versatile for more than just metal. My Les Paul Standard will gather dust now!

    And now I find out about the S2 line so going to hopefully try those soon and pick up a couple!

    I didn't believe it when people here told me that I will be addicted after just buying one. I now have four in just 18 months.

    After doing some research and trying a ton of different PRSs out...



    I fell in love with this S2 Custom 24. I will say that the SE series PRS guitar are fairly nice... but then I tried out the S2 line and I was impressed. I originally was after a Singlecut since I was replacing my Gibson Les Paul Standard, to which I compared against the S2 Singlecut. But something about the Custom 24 really sounded and felt good to me.

    Truth. I'm at three, and they were all acquired in about a 6-week span. They are all SE models, but they're still smokin' guitars.
