    None More Black

    Members were kind enough to respond to my last thread about a PRS I had been chasing for almost 20 years. http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthre...r-Hunt-is-Over

    Here's the black PRSi with moons from my collection. It's insanely difficult to photograph all of them together. Maybe I'll just post them individually later in the thread, if anyone wants closeups. Just ask. Thanks in advance for indulging my obsession.

    Funky panoramic flyby of table.


    In the below photo, from the top down:
    2003 Spruce Hollowbody
    2008 DGT
    2000 McCarty
    1993 McCarty Trem Prototype
    1988 CE-24, non-signature headstock
    1986 Custom 24, or Standard, or whatever they called them. This is Pearl, the closest I can find to black.

    True. And I prefer the 22-fret models. You're referring to the CE-24 and the '86, which is essentially a Custom 24. They're both great-playing PRSi and sound really great. I like their historical significance. Unfortunately, I'm thinking of letting the CE-24 go to help fund my next GAS-induced problem.

    I'm with you! Black with moons is the best.

    By the way, only us guitarists would be able to look at your collection and say, wow! What variety. You've got a 12 string, a Standard 24, a CE 24, McTrem Prototype, McCarty, DGT, and Hollowbody. the only one that seems like it might be superfluous would be the regular McCarty, which would look fantastic at my house.

    It's awesome. I was told it was one of the first black ones shipped, if not the first. No problems with the knobs on the tuners.

    Awesome collection! But if you don't mind a friendly suggestion, you need one with soapbars!

    This is a truly cunning strategy to keep the wife from noticing new guitars.

    Thats's one of my favorites! Plays deliciously. I'm thinking of doing a PTC run for new pickups on that one. Recommendations?
