    Cool! Too bad I wasn't there in person. I left right when he was about to play the 59 Les Paul. I would have loved to be in attendance just for a chance to see an actual 1959 LP.

    Tony McManus is a monster guitar player. Made me want to buy an acoustic today. It was a nice clinic.

    Nice to meet Vaughan as well.

    They said on Facebook that they will put the video on Youtube eventually. I'll have to keep an eye out for that.

    Join the club; or I'll join your club. Dang flood. Not that I saw anything I NEEDED on Dave's site, but with 249 of em, I could have missed one. I'm still wishing I'd picked up one of his semi-hollows from last time I was there.

    The thing I took away most from yesterday was how much the unplugged acoustic properies of an electric carry over to when it's plugged in. I've always know it to some extent, I'm just glad when I sit and play an electric unplugged that it's telling me what I want to know for the most part. That and how great loud electric sounds played in the acoustic room(and Paul's fascination with it). It is pretty amazing that no matter what note is played, the acoustics reverberate that note even though all those guitars are somewhat out of tune. It's pretty awesome.

    The neck pickup on the 59 sounds great, the bridge is pretty thin sounding IMO though.

    Yeah, Tony's a beast. Very nice guy too. I picked up his new cd from him there, where he used his Sig PS exclusively...it seriously sounds unreal. It might be the best acoustic tone I've heard recorded(not that I'm any expert).

    That's how I remember the 59 from Paul's last visit; but, like Paul said, the neck pickup is THE sound from 59s. Tha's why I picked up my MEII at that show - using the neck pup, it sounded identical to the '59.

    That's quite an endorsement, Jon. I've not had the pleasure of hearing a genuine '59 burst and a PRS at the same time.

    I remember that moment exactly, Jon.

    It was definitely a wow moment Hans. The guitar Jon picked up NAILED the '59 neck tone to a T. Only thing is, Jon's bridge pickup tone is way better IMO

    Way better - likely - way DIFFERENT - absolutely. A lot fatter and thicker than the 59 bridge pup. OTOH, I'm old enough that I got to play a lot of older Les Pauls before they became untouchable. I can't remember an old bridge pup that wasn't "thin."

    That said, I'm glad Paul and PRS has decided to "get" the neck tone, while "improving" the bridge. Works for me.

    What I like about Paul is he is always thinking bout how to impove or just aware of things around him. When he heard the reverb from all the acoustic guitars he was like a kid! I noticed that the gears were turning too when he heard that. Kind of like HOW do I capture this. I knew about acoustic properties being important on an electric but was a bit surprised to hear what it sounded like unplugged was prettry much what you heard plugged in. I think Paul really liked that 54 Tele. Maybe if Paul were to say give him all of the huge inventory Dave`s just got in maybe Dave would give him the tele lol. ( then again probably not ! ) talking to Dave afterwards before heading home said they still have like 90 PRS guitars in storage not out on floor yet.!
