    Top 3 and no more

    Markie's new DGT got me thinking. Many folks have killer PRS collections, but with so many amazing guitars how do they pick their favorites?

    So let's see 'em. Post 'em up.

    Your 3 favorite PRS Guitars

    My humble collection will not come close to some others out there, but here are my three:

    This Cu22 w/BRW neck was made for PRSH to take on buisness trips.

    This 2000 SC was made for Orkie

    The last one was a tough choice between my 88 CE24 that has tone from heaven, and this Cu24AP
    1988 CE24, 1995 CE22, 2000 SC, 2003 Standard 22, 2003 Cu24 AP, 2006 Cu24 AP, 2006 SC AP, 2007 CuRo22, 2010 Starla Stoptail, 2010 Mira
    2007 SE Soapy 2, 2010 SE 25th Anni Cu24, 2012 SE Bernie, 2013 SE Angelus Custom

    PRS SE50, Mesa Single RectoVerb, Mesa Lonestar, Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

    It may take Mark and Steve a few weeks to sort this one out.

    Here are mine.

    Not fancy, but a favorite. An early black SAS stoptail.


    86 Pre-std. Thank you QCG.


    Love the faded indigo

    My favorite 3:



    Jade Glow Private Stock DC 245 Ted, my favorite guitar ever!




    A magical TGS creation, a DC 245 with a Madagascar Rosewood Neck and a Trem.




    Another great TGS creation, "Earth Custom 24", 5.5 pounds with an Obeche body. I can't seem to find it though, I think I left it at the PTC for a refin!




    This one coming soon, might make it into the top 3 when it arrives, SC 245 Ted with an Obeche body and McCarty thickness, should be very lightweight. 408 pickups and Signature switching.

    Over my 4 year journey with PRS guitars, I have been more of a DC guy than an SC guy, but I did go through a few SC-centric phases, once with the SC 58's (3 of those) and again with the Wood Library SC Ted's (5 of those!). My back has been bothering me lately, which has contributed to me going almost exclusively to DC's.



    You mean this one? The Ultraviolet IRW SC (and Andy's Glacier Blue) was sold to fund the above Private Stocks. The bottom guitar in the oven at the Wood Library is Armando's Amethyst, in honor of that great Ultraviolet one you sold me!

    I've got to break out my good camera....I'm getting sick of iPhone pics...the Dirty 100's top is stunning in reality...Brent Moss took awesome shots of it but I think those
    pics are on my work computer.

    I recognize some of these, Pete's "Earth" and Bob's "Metal" in particular.
