    It's a Chinese copy that you're going to cut the back up on and make into a PRS Reb Beach model?

    Congrats! I don't know how I made it out of EXP without one, but I occasionally kick myself for it.

    This is just my first impression after playing for an hour or two. The first thing I noticed was the neck. It is supposed to be a pattern carve, but it is more like a regular carve. It is as narrow as my P22. Not uncomfortable, but my 513 PS with a DGT carve is actually wider. With a body thickness like a Cu22, it always feels a bit like a toy to me. The DGT and 513's are beasts by comparison.

    As with all guitars with the 408 system, it is very articulate. It is like playing a guitar in High Def. I compared it to my Signature LTD with the stop tail. As expected, it is not as mid heavy as a stop tail. The upper end of the tone is smooth and more rounded. It sits really well in a mix, but I found that I preferred the Signature LTD by itself and my 513 PS over both of them with the exception of the 513's high E string which sounds buzzy (It's not actually buzzy). I think the 408 semi-hollow could use a touch more mid range fullness and a little more bass. I would love hear what the 408 system on a DGT semi-hollow sounds like, because I think that might be my perfect tone.

    Of course my opinion might be different after this weekend. The strings were pretty dead on the Signature LTD, and I need to change the 408 Semi Hollow to my regular brand, Curt Mangans. Curt Mangan always seem to fill out and smooth the sound a bit when compared PRS strings which are more edgy.

    Excellent score. I remember standing in line for EXP 2013 with Mike and Gian and Mike says hey dudes check this out and shows us this guitar. Wicked stuff. Congrats.
