I played my first PRS in 1990 or so. I was into heavier music and locking floyds and blah blah blah. I played a PRS that belonged to one of the guys I was jamming with one day but I didn't care for it. I don't really care for the HFS pickup and suspect that's what that guitar may of had. Around the year 2000 I had started to notice more people using them and started checking them out. I got the fever. Now my wife won't let me carry the checkbook!!!!
