    Anyone else enjoying the pictures and article in the Premier Guitar on Minus the Bear? I need my Goldtop McTrem back!

    What's all that white stuff near the trem? Did he tape the selector switch to stay in the neck pickup position?

    It is a puzzling setup all around....

    Selector switch bondaged into 'neck', he's got a tremolo, but no bar....

    I'm guessing he never uses the bridge pup. He also appears to refuse to whammy...
    Thbbbbbt...
    Check it out: Phillybri used to have a band: Resonance, but he's soooo missingpieces over them now!

    There seem to be a lot of PRS players that buy the guitars with the trems without ever using them. The trem apparently contributes to the sound in a way that appeals to people and for some, it is more comfortable as a hand rest than the stop tail. I like both. I have a DGT Standard and almost never use the trem. But I love the sound of the guitar and the feel of the trem is nice.

    EDIT: maybe they intended the band name to be "Minus the Bar" but a spelling mistake happened?

    Not using the bridge pickup is interesting though. Maybe that's just his signature sound?

    I was going to say the same thing but then I thought, "no I don't want to open that can of worms, so I'll let Duncan do it" LOL

    Even a Goldtop with half a roll of tape on it is cool in my book. 'Course, that's just me.

    I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I don't have a Goldtop PRS of some kind. Maybe someday...

    That would be me. Never use the trem & sometimes will block on certain guitars...to me they play easier than the stoptails, and I like the neck angle better. They seem to have a slightly more "airy" or "open" tonal quality to them as well IMO.

    I've said it before (and it was me, not Kevin) and I'll say it again: all DGTs are Goldtops, the rest are just mistakes.


    That aside, as this not being a DGT thread, I love Dave's McCarty...I'm not sure what's up with the tape other than he REALLY doesn't want that switch to engage the bridge or mid.

    I just love how he's got that thang out there working! He's not concerned about the resale value on that bad boy....OWNED. Oh yes.

    Great band to see live too.
