    I always go for the opaque finishes anyway so this was an easy vote

    NOOOOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!!!! Our weapons are fear. Fear, and surprise. Fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency. (hmmm, I wonder where Ruth is?)

    Anyway, sorry, Kev, I think this is a bogus hypothetical. For one, why would I be innarested in another PRS guitar when I already have the two best ones I'm ever gonna have? Well, really, that's all that I have to say right there. Carry on, the rest of y'all.

    Guards! Take this man to some implement of torture until he recants! Then, you know, the usual burning at the stake thing, etc.

    Yeah, yeah, just get on over to my "spot the PRS" thread on VR (in the "recording" part) and let's see if you can ID those two fabulous specimens of Stevensville goodness.

    Not that any of you guys are in your "right minds!'

    Umm... No.

    This is a purely artificial dichotomy, created to stir up controversy and dissent!

    We don't have to make ugly choices like this! Boycott!!!

    I've always considered PRS guitars to be tone monsters in general, and their beauty just a bonus. I won't pay extra money for bling like birds, 10 top, Artist package, etc.

    I'll take a tone monster any day! I don't buy 'em to hang on the wall.

    Y'all might notice that the folks who are taking issue with my premise are not willing to put their names to a vote...

    Just sayin...

    More like a trichotomy but I agree.

    How can someone give an opinion to a question they don't believe is plausible?

    Read: "copout"

    This is a hypothetical conceptual choice. Not tangible. If you were forced to face this choice, what would YOU choose. Put your name on it! Unless of course, your mind is not developed enough to be capable of conceptual thinking...

    Exactly this. It's a nonsense poll, so no response from me

    My under-developed mind tells me this question is hypothetically rhetorical. You're asking a question that doesn't need to be answered for the sake of fleshing out who would identify themselves as superficial. Maybe that's not the case and it's just how us stupid folk think. Oh yeah, I looked up "copout" and apparently that's two words.

    It's still bogus. With respect to guitars, the particulars always matter. If you want to start an intelligent conversation about the relative weight people assign to abstract concepts such as "tone," "beauty," and "quality of construction/materials," setting up a bogus hypothetical that only deals in extremes is a lousy way to do it.
