    New guy in Troy MI seeking product advice

    Hello all,

    I'm PRS owner for about 8 years now. My first PRS is a custom 24 artist package (wide thin neck) and I love, love, love this guitar. I also recently picked up a Torero for it's Floyd Rose. I like the pickups on the Torero for a really hard over driven sound (I currently play into a Marshall JVM 410C) and the simpler blade switch (my 24 has a knob for pickup selection.) While the Tororo is fine guitar it just doesn't match the play-ability of my custom 24.

    I'm trying to figure out what I can do. Do I take the Torero to a good guitar tech and have him tweak it out? Do I find a an older custom 24 with a blade switch and put a Floyd on it?

    Thoughts?

    PTC is a great option, as is buying one of every guitar until you find the right one.

    PTC was the answer for me and I'm very happy with their work.

    WELCOME!
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!

    I'm a huge fan of the PTC. They do an amazing job.
    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.

    One other thing. I'm wondering what the neck specs on my custom 24 wide/thin compared to the Torero. My Torero is pretty current so I've got specs from the web site. How do I find neck specs for my 24? I'm not even sure of the year but its around 7 or 8 years old I think. Been searching the web but not coming up with much. I feel like the Torero is wider (strings further apart) and flatter, but I could be wrong.
