Grab them if you can find them. I had mine up against what are considered by many to be the finest guitars ever made. 1950s 335s and LPs, 50s Fenders, other PRSs, Maple CU 22 semi hollow LTDs, McCartys, top of the line vintage Epiphones....it was my favorite guitar there. It must be carved differently than the Maple capped one, as I cant see a Walnutcap and Braz fingerboard making this much of a difference. Adding to this thought, is that with way over the top gain, the Maple capped one holds together better, which is consistent with a more solid guitar. For clean and low to mid gain tones, the Walnut wins every time. I was not expecting to love this guitar, but I am NUTS for the Walnut LTD. One of the finest PRSs I have ever played. Better than my Artist 3 semi hollow in some ways, not as good in others, but on the whole, and equally great guitar. Unbelievable. To hang with, or IMO surpass all of those masterpieces with a BRAND new guitar, not even broken in is unthinkable. Congrats to PRS. Mind boggling guitar. And thanks again to Markie for being the one who pushed me over the edge to take a chance on one of these.
