    PRS CAD Amp and Cab Pic thread!

    Per Jester's suggestion from another thread, let's post our PRS CAD creations here!

    I'll start. My new Custom MDT (based on Paul's MDT) with a 4x10, in Paisley with Black Gold Maple:



    TGS Blistertone 1x12 Combo, with the effects loop option, 1 of 5 from Brent's run he did, also Paisley with Black Gold:



    I also have a CAD 2-Channel H with Doug's Boost Mod with a 4x10 with Gold Burst Maple, up in Ottawa where I rehearse and gig, haven't played through it yet, will post pics in a couple of weeks.

    I love the CAD program!! Awesome to be able to pick the cover and Maple, and do custom mods! Thanks Doug and Paul...

    I've acquired a few PRS Custom Amps......


    HXDA with "Kitchen Sink Mods" which allow both parallel and series operation:








    Here, with the custom flamed cover I will eventually install (Santana yellow):



    Here with one of the two PRS cabs it goes into:



    Here is the Sweet 16+





    And here is the custom cover I will eventually install (Jade Glow to match my PS #3340):



    I use an SE extension cab with this one:



    To be continued!

    Turnabout is fair play Pete...I'm trying my best to catch up to YOUR playing ability. If I had a dollar for everyone who said that my collection is wasted on my talent....

    .....I could buy another custom amp!!

    PS...I "stole" the thread." and brought it to VR..hope you don't mind!

    I know how you feel, my gear collection far exceeds what my modest skill level warrants, but we need hobbies, right?

    You don't have to be a Formula One driver to own a Ferrari, either. There's no test to see who qualifies, other than whether you can pony up the cash!

    I know this because a full-stack idea came to my mind as well, so I did the math!
    You know, the cool guys would simply tilt the amp on its front so they could operate the controls, and not worry about seeing the face plate, right?

    That would be something, both visually and tonally!

    I am digging the Blistertone more and more as I get used to it. I got a combo, but I am going to convert it to a head, I really like it through the 4x12.

    When it comes to amps, I prefer the tolex fronts to the flamed maple, by far. I guess I'm alone in this amongst the wood freaks who inhabit this forest!

    My amp came from dealer stock with the maple front...but if I ever order a second model, it'll be None More Black.

    Agree! I have seen that head a bunch of times, but usually on a black cab. The matching set looks GREAT! Classy...

    Thanks guys! I asked Doug Sewell if they could make me a matching cab at the Experience two years ago. He got hold of the last of the green fabric and "put my name on it". Once the CAD program got running they built it for me. I was told it is the one and only matching cab for the green 25TH Ann. Amps and the last of that fabric was used to make it. Doug and Mike Clark are some cool guys.

    Guys, my OCD compels me to suggest that certain of these amplifiers need to be dusted.
