    Smile Back into guitar after 14 years, and BNGD!

    Hi everyone! I was bitten by the PRS bug back in '95, when I custom-ordered a Cu22 from my crack... I mean, guitar dealer at the time, a certain Mr. Meader. I picked up a McCarty and Singlecut a few years later, and hung out in the PRS Forum, which back then was on Harmony Central IIRC...

    But since 2000 my life took a major (good) career turn, and I stopped playing. It took me until this year to realize that that sucked, and guitar and music were too important to me to let slide.

    So here I am! I'm working on a couple of Private Stocks now, and will likely reduce my existing "herd" to help cover it. But I did pick up a PS from XPRS '13 (Belated NGD ) that was too unique to pass up, and even more amazing in person. Some pics below, and thanks to everyone for the great resource and awesome eye-candy!

    Cheers,
    Ken

    The Singlecut is amazing. I love the camera perspective of the neck shot: flames reaching for the sky. The 24 is pretty sweet too.

    Both guitars look superb!
    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.

    So you're the one who took that home? Awesome! Hope Brian cleaned some of the drool off. I took a lot of friends over to look at that one.

    Thanks, everyone! Yeah, that SC was pretty much a no-brainer, and I'm a sucker for singlecuts -- just don't tell any (other) dealers!

    I appreciate the welcome, and I look forward to being schooled by everyone here while I try to play catch-up!
