    I admire anyone who lays it on the line, and puts their playing out there -- whether live, recordings, or in videos. And whether the playing is great, good, or still needs some work, I'm good with most anyone getting out in the world.

    Special mention to these fine players:

    Tag, whose videos are always toneful and cool;

    Chris, (GRGTR) you rock! Big time.

    MA Pete, who gets out there in band competitions -- and wins!

    Chris- Loved all those pup demos!

    Les- I actually pay attention to car commercials now. I saw a new Caddy ad the other day with some really nice single-coil tones and wondered if those were 408 pups.

    Paul- You make my favorite guitars. (What? He's a forum member too you know.)

    Endorsers
    Nicky Moroch
    Mike Ault
    Gary Grainger

    These guys are literally the top tier of musicians in the WORLD and we are lucky enough to have them demo our favorite gear, play for us at clinics/experience and even hangout with in their down time.

    Chris, Bob and Bryan are seriously some rockin' players. Getting to see all three on stage together was such a great experience that I enjoyed watching them more than I did playing myself!

    Paul
    Len
    J. Hayes

    Man - very rarely is a company made up of people who actually use what they make at work, but obviously its not the case here. Paul's playing is like butter and while he may be modest, he shouldnt be. Len rules and thats all I have to say about that, I still watch his Pink Floyd covers from time to time! Lastly - J. Hayes. Always smiling, always willing to chat and makes some of the most beautiful sounds come out of the PRS gear he plays. I'd rather watch him than 99% of the endorsee's and thats not a knock on them, just a compliment to J's talents!

    You guys are very nice... Chris and Bryan are formidable company....to be mentioned with them is pretty darn cool.

    Forum members I can't narrow down...I had an unbelievable time jamming with everyone at Mark's....and I was impressed with everyone for different reasons...mostly for you all being brave enough to put yourself out there in front of a room full of guitarists...sharing in a wide variety of styles.....I cannot stress enough how much I liked the acoustic sets....and it always impresses me when somebody can sing and play at the same time...heck I can hardly talk and play simultaneously...and those of you who jumped on drums...I couldn't play drums if my life depended on it....BTW did any of you hear GCRon shredding in the back room?

    PRS artists....if I cheat over to amps I get to include Derek and Warren....which I would include in my top three in a heartbeat.

    hmmm...if I focused on guitar endorsers....I would take Grissom, Knowles, and McLaughlin....although its really hard to choose...I mean I also would love to get lessons from Brent Mason...he just slays...he could really broaden my horizons if I had the opportunity to spend some time with him.

    Impossible to limit to 3 but:

    -crgtr - We all know Chris is a swell guy and a hell of a player.
    -Dave Grissom - Seeing him at the EXP last year blew my doors off.
    -Clint Lowery - My favorite metal player...everything from playing to songwriting to vocals his acoustic solo stuff. I admire it all. He's a really nice guy to boot.
