    I exempt status - but only until Aldy gives up his 305 Proto.

    In terms of what would be a really practical guitar for me, I think a 305 should be at the top of my list. I am moving more towards the Fender side of things with the music I have been creating and just don't enjoy playing Strats and Teles, I love the sound but hate the ergonomics. I really have to check a 305 out!

    I have a great one I picked up from Markie. Maple neck AND Ebony FB. As you would expect its bright and punchy, but it's heavier sounding than a Strat. I assume it's that mahogany body that balances it out.

    Yes. It's not Private Stock but it was customized a bit by the factory.

    Those white ones are nice...as are the fancy ones, too!

    They're great sounding guitars.

    That mod pre-dates Daniel too. His middle name is "."

    Hey Daniel, I heard a rumor that there was video out there, somewhere, of a guy grinding that lip off the top of his Archtop.

    Not with a grinder...

    Not with a file...

    But on the sidewalk!

    So what's the connection between this beauty and Mr. Beck?

    I have a 25th Anniversary that hits all the bullet points: tone, feel, sustain. Just a special instrument.

    I love my 305, if I could only keep 3 guitars for the rest of my life it would be the 305, my Hollowbody II SC, and my 1956 goldtop Les Paul.

    I own two and bit (ones a 407). One factory and two PS. One of PRS' most underrated models.

    Mine is a 25th Anniversary... with the shadow birds which I really dig! 25ths are not hum cancelling in positions 2 & 4, just like old strats. Tone is beefier than a strat, maybe set neck helps too. It's definitely a keeper.

    I've had a couple of them. The first had then513 neck and I never did get used to it so I let it go. The second was antique white with maple board and neck with dirt birds...that one was terrific and I miss it. Gas is a cruel mistress!
