    New Guitar Help/Assistance!

    Hey all!

    Fairly new to the PRS thing. I currently have a Swamp Ash Special, a Stripped 58, and a Studio.

    I'm going to add another this weekend and was wondering what you all think might be a direction to go?

    Been looking at 408's and Paul's Guitars, but not necessarily locked into either. I prefer fixed bridges to tremolos (even tho I have 2!). I also am thinking of something that either coil splits or something besides just 2 Humbuckers. 24-frets aren't really my thing either.

    What models am I forgetting about?!?

    Music tastes range from blues to classic rock to alternative to metal.

    Thanksin advance!

    Wow, There are a lot of choices beyond what you have listed. A Hollowbody would add some diversity. I'm on the verge of a full blown G.A.S. attack for one right now.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm a big fan of the hollow body stuff. Maybe give those a play.

    4 PRSs in your collection already and you said you are fairly new to PRS?

    "Been looking at 408's and Paul's Guitars, but not necessarily locked into either. I prefer fixed bridges to tremolos (even tho I have 2!). I also am thinking of something that either coil splits or something besides just 2 Humbuckers. 24-frets aren't really my thing either."

    Man, sound like Paul's Guitar to me with those description It will compliments your other guitars nicely.

    but wait, did you say Metal?

    Then IMHO 408 would fit better if you would like to cover all those grounds with "one" guitar. It has more of that "Oomph" palm-muted thing than Paul's guitar.

    And you could tell why I could said that for those 2 guitars...

    Paul's Guitar in Copper, 408MT Brazilian Neck in Black Gold
    1987 Gibson Les Paul Pre-Historic '59, Fender Stratocaster American Vintage '57
    Musicman JP6 full option in Mystic Dream, Gibson Explorer with EMG 81-85 in Black

    Suppalak,

    I too have a Mark V head into a Rectifier 212 cab. (Though at this moment I am playing my Rockerverb 50 a bit more).

    Beautiful guitars by the way.
