Last year in August was the first time it was right in my life to take the plunge on a PRS. I found a nice used Custom 24 in excellent condition. I had just gotten a major promotion at work and thought that after over 20 years of wanting to spoil myself, the time was right.
Since then, I have also acquired a Singlecut Hollowbody, Studio, and Swamp Ash Studio. Each has its own distinct voice and I love playing them all.
There are a few really good guitar manufacturers out there. PRS is one that I truly admire for the reasons you all do, too: great vision, great customer service, and none of the nickel and diming that boost the short run profits at the expense of a long run customer loyalty and fulfillment of the dream Mr. Smith had when he started.
So here's a simple thank you to all the people that make these pieces of 'functional art'.
I wish you all the best this season. May 2014 bring you much happiness.
