    "It’s not unusual for buyers in England, says Mortimer, to drive 300 miles to buy a PRS."

    There's a deluded statement given that PMT and Dawsons, GAK and DV247 stock them....as well as a host of smaller boutique stores,

    I'd certainly drive 300 miles or more for the right one, and that's here in the US where there are more dealers.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Well i'm surrounded by PRS dealers, the article does say England, not UK, whilst I would visit all the local PRS dealers for the right guitar but chances are I'd find it in my usual haunt.

    Yes it is a great article and given the numbers being quoted, time to get my hands on some wood, a bandsaw and some sandpaper and glue.

    Good article!

    I'm quite lucky where I live as we have some good PRS stockists around.

    I'm not huge fan of buying guitars online so I probably would be prepared to clock up a few miles to find 'the one'. I've travelled as far as Birmingham (GuitarGuitar) and Sheffield (Richtone) to find the right one. Wildwire's a bit out the way but I may go up there one day just to check it out as it looks impressive.
