Biding my time for something that moves me. .......
My name is Gregory and I just purchased my first PRS guitar from Sweetwater today. Its a Dirty Blue Paul's Guitar. I am a retired and disabled Marine. I have numerous injuries to my spine that keep me from working, so I started to play guitar as something to help occupy my mind. At first, I just wanted/needed something to distract me from the heavy nerve pain that I must endure each day. Oddly enough, the multiple skills required to play does a great job of getting me out of getting so focused on the pain. So I have been playing since 2009 and it has become much more than just a means of pain therapy. It has become a fun hobby that is not only therapeutic but intoxicating. So in this journey being a Marine And as my wife says OCD it is only natural that I gravitate to the best guitars available. I look forward to being a member of the community and enjoying this truly amazing instrument.

hello everyone. i own a prs se custom (korean) and i love it. after playing some at guitar center i fell in love with the feel of the guitar so i called around local guitar shops to see if anyone can order one in blue. i finally found a company that ordered it in blue. when i got the shop, to my surprise, it was a greenish blue. i thought it was going to be like a royal blue or even whale blue but this one is greenish blue with the horizontal stripes. anyway, i love the guitar! i joined this forum to ask one question. so i will go make a thread of my question now. thanks
My name is Cesar. I am the proud owner of a Custom 24 Red Fire and a SE 24 Tobacco Sunburst. I play the guitar since I was seven years old, graduated in the School of Music in Madrid ( Classic guitar ) - I play from Classic to metal, been playing in different bands but always in a non professinal way - I do other things for making a decent living :-) . I am a Spaniard living in UK for professional reasons.
I am absolutely inlove with my PRS's , the Custom and the SE too. I have a Gibson Les Paul Studio ( 1990 ) , a Carvin Bolt ( 1985 ), a Spanish Alhambra 1984 ( fabulous guitar ), a Silent Yamaha, nylon ( an interesting " hybrid " ), an acoustic Takamine an my two PRS's.
I am happy to find this forum and I am looking forward to learning a lot from all of you!

New to the Forum and PRS - I have long wanted a PRS back when I sold guitars in my early 20's - I am only half way there as I aquired a set of 53/10's. I put the cart before the horse because now I have to find the right guitar to put them in. Wish me luck! I apologize in advance for any dumb questions that I might post.
Welcome aboard Cesar and Andy!
Hi There people,
My name is David. I'm from Sunny Morningside, Scotland and I've only just joined the forum... found it when i was hunting the net for pickups. I've been performing in bands for years now and although i've always been involved in the writing, I,ve always been the vocalist live. In the last year or so I decided to get back into playing the guitar for fun rather than just to be a writing tool. My friend (and lead guitarist in my band) introduced me to PRS guitars as he owns a 1991 CE24. I love the way the guitar sounds and it felt great to play... I became a PRS owner last year. I managed to purchase a gorgeous 1994 Custom 22 10 top in cherry sunburst. The guitar had HFS treble and Vintage bridge pickups (both uncovered) when i got it but i switched them out for a set of tremonti pickups. I sourced a set including a nickel covered bridge pickup and the guitar sounds and looks far better. I am well and truely bitten by the PRS bug. I just took delivery of my latest purchase... A McCarty 57/08 10 top in blueberry (133 of 150 limited run). The guitar looks amazing and feels great. I love the sound of the neck pickup for my clean tone but I think i'd prefert to switch out the bridge pickup for a tremonti. I love the way the guitar looks so I really need to find a nickel covered tremonti treble.... not an easy task, Think i was lucky to have found the last one.
Anyway... I'm glad to finally be part of the PRS comunity.
If any of you guys out there can point me in the right direction for the pickup i'm looking for, I'd really appreciate it.

I am Cayle from the Philippines. I recently purchased a 2013 PRS Bernie Marsden SE. It's a well built guitar that sounds great and looks great. I'm more of a Tele guy, but I love the spanky tone that I get from the PRS SE as well.
Welcome to the Forum Cayle & David!
Fanboy of the Jester (AKA) James (Previously known as 11top)
Im Nick from New Zealand. Just picked up a 1997 PRS McCarty -Haven't plugged it in yet but it looks and feels great. Needs a bit of a tidy up but I'm hoping it sounds great regardless!
My name is Todd, live in Hebron, CT with wife Michele of 20 years, and 2 daughters ages 15 and 19. (yes God help me).
I guess I don't consider myself a 'guitarist' yet as much as I am a student. Next month, it will be my 3rd year of taking lessons. At age 44 I am relatively late to the game but hey, never too old right?
My main guitar that I bought approx 2 years ago is a PRS (Grey) SE Torero which I love. I also have a Gretsch 5420T.
So with those 2 in hand, I sit in the corner of my bedroom with a Fender frontman Amp and work on my Natural C scales, my pentatonics in all 5 modes, throw in a few songs and it makes me happy. Not sure I am ready for prime time but I certainly enjoy learning and being awed and inspired by people who know how to play this thing. :-)
My other passion is motorcyles..I have a 2005 Honda ST1300 with which I have covered some serious ground on. (20 States, 3 Provinces and 108,000 miles as of this morning)
As far as music, Love love LOVE Rush! The complexity of the music just sweeps me away as well as we the skill at which they play..
Also eagerly awaiting Alter Bridge's new album (and hope American tour)...Love all hard rock, heavy metal..
Looking forward to the forum, learning and sharing.

Nice to have you Todd.
Glad you found your way here.
New to the forum... Owned PRS guitars previously, off and on but sold each, (an original McCarty and an original version of the Mira) but I just bought a PRS Custom 24 brand new last night and I plan on keeping this one.
I own other brands too and thought it would be appropriate to join each official forum representing the different brands that I own.
I don't have a lot to say right out of the gate so I guess I will just lurk for a little while and try to get the feel of the place.
Thanks for reading.
