    PRS guitars that you own and what do you want

    Hi all,

    I finally joined the PRS club back in 2010, when i bought a Whale Blue 2009 PRS Custom 22 from Guitar Center. I had wanted a PRS for over 10 years and finally bought one to celebrate my passing an important certification test in my field.

    Since then I've bought a SingleCut SE PRS as a nice workmans guitar as well. I am impressed with this guitar as well, which I only bought when another guitar I owned got damaged.

    Of course this thread is useless without pictures, which I'll post later of both.

    My next big purchase is amplifier related, I'll either be getting a boutique amplifier or a modeling device like Axe FXII.

    When I do get another electric, it almost surely will be a PRS, but which one is uncertain. I love the McCartys, but on a totally different note am very interested in checking out the P22 as well.

    My first PRS (and still in my possession ) is a 93 Alder body maple top CE24. I have refinned the neck with a gunstock oil and replace the electronics five times.

    My second PRS was a 6 year hunt. I wanted a satin finished 20th Ann Standard and had to settle for...
    a 2006 20th Ann Custom 24 Artist. I have the original pickups tucked away and am rocking a set of 5708s currently.

    Can't find how to post pics with Vbulletin via iPod so they will have to wait.

    My next PRS may be a Studio in Purple Hazel, but I am a sucker for the regular neck shape, which my other PRSi both have.

    Currently:
    2000 McCarty Soapbar in McCarty Burst
    2005 Custom 22/12 (20th Anniversary) in Blue Matteo
    2009 DGT Goldtop
    2009 Modern Eagle II (pre-25th Anniversary) in Charcoal
    2009 305 in Violin Amber Sunburst
    2010 Modern Eagle III (25th Anniversary) in Angry Larry
    2010 Hollowbody II CB (25th Anniversary) in Charcoal Burst
    2012 Signature Limited in Faded Abalone

    A 1999 Custom 22 in Whale Blue (my first PRS), a 2000 CE24 in Emerald Green, and a 2009 Mira X in Cherry have also all come and gone over the years. Nice guitars all, but replaced by better guitars. (IMO)

    I think I've got pretty much all the bases covered here. I am not a big fan of PRS singlecuts (I guess that's pretty obvious) but I could be tempted by the right SC-58. That would prompt me to get rid of my last Lester (and at one point I had 5 of them.)

    Now, if a "Modern Eagle 5" appears at XPRS 2012 with 408s and a IRW neck, I'll be on that so fast it'll make your head spin.

    It most likely has nothing to do with your iPod/iPad/iPhone, but rather a setting in your CP.

    You're probably accustomed to having a picture option available in a vBulletin forum build. By default they typical editor is the "Standard Editor". Some do their build with the full "Enhanced Interface". This forum has the "Basic Editor" turned on by default.

    Go into your CP and follow these breadcrumbs: My Account > General Settings > Miscellaneous Options > Standard Editor. Once you save those settings you'll have a different interface when replying. You'll then see the little Image graphic you're accustomed to seeing.

    If that doesn't work for your device you can always hand type bulletin board tags around the URL of your image, like this:
    Code:

    I want a PRS with a 2Tek bridge as a factory option.

    Not too much to ask, is it?

    I recently traded all of my Gibsons (SG, LP Std, ES335)for 2 PRS's, and another Mesa DC-3 Amp + a full set of new tubes. 2010 PRS Custom 24 25th, 2004 PRS Standard 24 Gloss.

    I still want a Blue Santana, and a SingleCut. And a few more Custom 24s. Maybe a hollow-body too.

    That one with the P90s actually belongs to John Mann - who use to build the original 1 piece tremolos for Paul. He just opened a new shop too and will be carrying a massive amount of PRSi !

    I thought I had my PRS GAS licked!

    I've not bought a new addition into the house for about a year, but lately I've been having the serious urges for several PRS I've seen around and about.

    The most pressing is one of the new Signature guitars,
    I'd love to try out one of the Artist Vs and the DGT Standard is calling also.

    Long term dreams include a PRS Violin guitar ( If I could only find one! ) and if I could somehow swing it I'd love to get my 2009 ME1 in FBJ that I had to sell ( yep that's right, a 2009 ME1! )

    Ain't she pretty?

    I started with a PRS CE24. I was rough on guitars when I was younger, so I got a bolt on neck. Loved it, but upgraded to a McCarty 20th Anniversary. These days I have a love for the Singlecuts and the SJ model.
