I've got $550 cash in hand, another guitar that is worth approx $850 = $1400. I've got some spare pedals that I could get rid of in order to get a bit more liquidation in my pocket. I own an Archtop II & McCarty, so this one will definitely need to have a trem. I do NOT like/prefer gold hardware, tho' I can live with it. I am a bigger fan of vintage vibe/tones, rather than modern/high gain tones. I don't need a 10 top.
1. How affordable would it be to get a PRS with trem & rosewood neck? Which models/why?
2. Or, you think I can't afford a crackwood guitar & I should buy a _______ because ______.
