Well I must be nuts these days! I just bought a DGT about a month ago and now another! The logic (?!) goes: that this DGT is for my MIDI connection. You see, I couldn't bring myself to attach anything to the top of the new 10 top! I wanted it to age naturally even though the MIDI installation isn't permanent. Soooo, I was on the look out for another guitar, errr... PRS, that I could attach the MIDI wart to and not worry so much. I figured at worst, down the road, the PTC could possibly help with any trouble I get into with this top... I hope!
At first I had in mind a black color to hide the MIDI wart, pup and all. I also figured I should go for a different tone away from the DGT sound and checked out a PRS DC3 in sapphire smoke burst. Beautiful guitar and bitchin tone but I didn't like the neck and the MIDI pup wouldn't fit right with the shape of the pick guard. I considered others as well; Starla, 408, Mira, etc. However there was something that wouldn't work as far as the fitting the MIDI pup and/or because I really also wanted a trem.
It dawned on me that I really just loved how the DGT felt in my hands. But, could I justify buying a second? Hell yes!! Maybe a black one I thought. Figures that in my search an antique white popped up! Lol. I thought it looked pretty cool! So I looked a bit deeper and saw this one. I thought it looked fkn awesome! It's made this year but has the old school birds on it. Not sure what the inlay is but I love how it helps bring the white of the guitar out even more. I said fk it and pulled the trigger!
I thought this would be a nice backup to my other DGT. Plus I can always throw different pup's in it for different tones which I'm actually considering for the other one (McCarty pups that I bot from Hopeful Sinner). However, I'm not making any hasty pup decisions just yet since some of you know that I'm also looking at getting a new amp! Man, all of a sudden this is starting to get reeeaaaal expensive! Especially considering my McCarty is at the PTC gettin a refinish and refret also... that's not been paid for yet either! I'd like to get that guitar back to A-B the pickups to see what I'm feelin once I get the new rig.
I also loved the natural binding on this one. It just added something more. I'm wondering if this is a MT then? It doesn't say on the description.
I had them put 10's on it cause that's what I usually play and it's a dream! (Turned out they didn't! They're 11's)
