    Shout Out To The PTC

    i posted a more detailed description in the PTC section of the Forum, but I wanted to give a shout out to the PTC for the absolutely amazing setup on my Artist V.

    Incredible work. Beyond expectations (which were high).

    If you want your PRS to play like a rock star's, this is SO the way to go. Wow.

    If you're thinking about a PTC setup, DO IT.

    Beautiful! That's very classy, Les. Is it a Violin Amber Burst? It looks like a match to my 513, but with the extra classy gold hardware.

    Love the Birds!

    Braz fret board? So nice and dark, really makes the birds POP!
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!

    It's Black Gold, same family as VAB, which is one of my favorite colors, too; but a little darker and no burst..

    Nope, all Artist Vs have ebony boards and gold hardware. There's also some kind of shell purfling on the board and headstock, though I can't remember what it is.

    They're essentially CU22s with Artist V pickups (whatever those are, they sound kind of between 57/08s and 59/09s on my guitar), ebony boards, and some Artist type trim. The backs are lightweight ribbon mahogany, and the necks are Peruvian mahogany. They were all Pattern Regular necks. I usually play W/F or Pattern, but this neck feels great in the hand as well. I'm pretty flexible on neck widths anyway.

    The whole thing is lively, and when you play a note or strum a chord the neck just vibrates like crazy. The guitar is very, very responsive. It's light and comfortable as all get out to play in every way.

    I will play this guitar until the time comes when I can no longer hold it or move my fingers.

    When my wife comes to the nursing home to ask the staff if they've changed my diaper and fed me, I will point a trembling finger at a picture of the guitar on the wall of my room, and make a face like, "is the guitar still ok?"

    I just hope that day is a while off...
