Looking to buy a new (ok used) PRS next week. Been thinking about a 305 or a Swamp Ash Special. Would love to hear from some owners of these guitars to get there thoughts. I am unable to play whatever I buy because the stores in town don't have them available, plus I am looking to buy used anyway. I do have a 513 and from what I have read the 305 has the same neck but unfinished, like the the SAS. I really am looking for something a bit different. Have thought about Cu22's and a Singlecut because I have had them before and loved them, but thought I would step outside what I've had in the past with something different. I do play country and rock, think Aldean, but I'm not too concerned about tone. I know that sounds crazy but I don't think I've ever heard a PRS that I didn't like the way it sounded. With that said, I would still love to hear how you think your 305 or SAS sound.
I have thought about the Swamp Ash with Narrowfields, but I think that would be out of my range. I have about $1400, maybe $1500 to spend.
