Thread: PRS's biggest failure, sales wise.

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    PRS's biggest failure, sales wise.

    I love PRS, have owned dozens over the past twenty years and still do.
    While I consider great instruments most of the different models PRS has put out, I was wondering which model was their biggest failure regarding sales.
    I assume one model must be the least wanted, the one which sold less units.
    Wonder which one.

    don't know it, but I think the McCarty MD and Santana MD were a big mistake. The Modern Eagle 3, I like, but looks like they didn't sell much, at least I don't see many of those around.

    Yeah...I used to own a McCarty II. Nice guitar but those electronics...

    That color scheme does absolutely nothing for me, yet Bob and Hans are droolin'. Is there any question now why more choices is a good thing? We all see things differently.

    Hey I'm drooling too! I saw these twenty years ago and have been haunted ever since. Are three people enough of a demographic for a limited SE finish from a Colorasta distributer?

    Cheer up Sergio, to the best of my knowledge no more than 12 Santana Tri-color Custom 24's were made. So that leaves 11 for you!

    No mistake what-so-Iver my friend! I was just under the impression that there were only three made, my post just reflected the mini-stroke I was having knowing there are more out there.

    Early EG's didn't fly very well.

    My EG Series II experience

    I can respect the opinions of those who aren't EG fans. My personal EG experience goes like this. I bought an EG Series II H/S/H NEW IN 1992. I never was totally happy with it, but I held on to it anyway. Now, 20 years later I really like it. My playing style changed and now I am able to get more out of the EG by playing with a lighter touch and a tad more finesse. The guitar didn't grow on me, I grew into the guitar.

    The NF3 hasn't been much of a hit here in the UK, they're discounted like crazy.

    You should get off your computer, go to the local store that has discounted "like crazy" and buy it as soon as possible. This is an absolutely fantastic guitar!!!!
