    Mine TOO!

    ...and I owned the NOS Gilmour Strat. Trust me, the MAGIC isn't from that Guitar.

    I WOULD LOVE to see what Mr. Gilmour would sound like with say a "Paul's Guitar" in his hands. Yes, I know it would sound like him but I think it might even be MORE wonderful to listen too!

    too many artists series

    The PRS line is a work of art in and of itself
    Woods and colors are awesome

    I think the vari-tone-like pickup selector knobs
    were a mistake, but I think thats been remedied

    IMHO, of course

    FWIW I LOVE my SE Custom 24
    Can't wait to hold my very own 408

    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.

    I must personally disagree. i think my mccarty 25 nf is the best sounding guitar i have heard in my 30+ yrs of guitar playing. and with that, i will meet you at the flag pole after school to mano-mano this one out!!! (lol)

    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.

    Rasta's always say "Red, Gold & Green".
