Man, I've always wanted an old Paul Reed Smith, you know one of those ones he was building in that sweaty attic. They weren't all too fancy lookin' and some of the examples floating around had weirdo P90 wooden covers and spartan lookin' controls, they we built for a purpose and one-off for whatever the fit the clients needs..I wouldn't say they were janky appearing, but they don't look like the crazy perfect guitars that the company is known for.
Well there's no way I'd be able to afford one of those, much less take it out of the house.. So I figured I'd set my time machine to "way back" and special order me a PRS from 1983 (in my mind) just for me.
No plastic except for the plates and lampshades, a Lace Silver in the neck and a metal toggle switch tip from an old Guild S100 that makes a bangin' "Klaaangg!" sound that's audible through the pups when you switch... It's like, "Get ready b!tches! Ima light this place on fire with my melting lead.. Klaaangg!".
Now don't tell me I got my dates wrong and Lace Sensors didn't come out until '85, I don't wanna hear it, this is my fantasy, I can think whatever I want. The Mira bass is a damn fine pup but wasn't a single coil.. Single is where I'm at right now and F@ck is this great sounding pickup! I will probably cut the stupid tone knob out and replace it with a sour-switch in the future, but for now I'm lovin' it!
There are still 99 of these KL's floating around unmolested so go get one before there are only 98. This guitar is BANGIN'!!!!
