    Red face NGD and Hi!

    Hello =)!

    My name is Stefan and i am a hobby musician from munich.
    2 Months ago i bought my first PRS SE Mikael Akerfeldt which has an awesome sound and was my first PRS. It's always a wonderful moment to play on her.

    This week i am in cologne for doing some stuff for a customer and on my free day i've visited a music store which is one of the biggest in germany. Never i had imagined to buy anything there. I just want to look around and get some inspiration for next things i could use in my little studio. But then i saw a rig of PRS guitars. Unfortunately "only" SE and S2's (already tested them very intensive in munich) but it was always a dream for me to test a Custom 22.

    I went to a salesman and asked where the expensive guitars are stored. He smiled and said i should follow him. We've walked to a small room where only premium guitars hanged around. My eyes has spotted the PRS rig instantly. I was like: "Wow! Holy?!".

    When i asked him for his favorite guitar from PRS he gave me a 408. She was ok but i had no good feeling that this "could" be my guitar. I said: "Hey, its ok and sounds pretty good but i cant feel anything between her and me.". 1 Minute later he had this SC245 for me. Again, nothing between the guitar and me. It was not the tone. I have to admit that no PRS i've tested there had bad tones. It's just "the thing" which i've missed

    After 10 minutes alone with the SC245 he gave me a Custom 22 10 Top. Booom!
    He has infected me with the PRS virus. I had no chance. I was like: "Sh*t up and take my money!" but i cant just give away so much money without sleeping some days about it. The last 2 days were like hell on earth for me. Every free minute i had was filled by thoughts and dreams about this guitar. It was clear to me. This is "The guitar".

    Today i went back to the store and bought the guitar. I had a last nice talk to the salesman who were really competent and helped me a lot. The whole morning he prepared the guitar with new strings, polishing and tuning it to perfection. He was kind a sad to give the guitar away

    I have to say this feels like the best investment i've ever done for my little music project.

    tl;dr;
    PRS is awesome and i glad to own my first custom 22 now! Thank doing such perfect instruments!
    I am sry for the bad image quality and bad lights, i am in a hotel right now










    Greetings from germany =)

    Gorgeous guitar, and a great model choice as well. Plus...black gold burst, it doesn't get much better!
    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.

    Congrats! Glad you found one that speaks to you.

    The problem is...now the other ones know what to say, and before you know it, there will be dozens of them in your house!

    Sweet looking Cu22, excellent guitars! Also, no need to apologize for your pics, especially since they're great despite being in the hotel!

    Welcome and congratulations!
