    Time to get real. Forget looks, post a pic of the best sounding PRS you now own.

    What are the woods and pups too.
    Sound clips would be great if you have them!! Lets hear that bad boy! This is my favorite. Artist 3 chambered trem. Mahogany neck, ebony fretboard. 57/08s.

    Only have the one PRS at the moment... But it does sound great!

    SE Bernie Marsden. Originally fitted with the SE 245 pups (which did sound good) and then fitted with Bare Knuckle Mules. Felt I needed something more powerful in the bridge so went with a Suhr Doug Aldrich which did the trick.

    Build wise its a 'mahogany' body and neck with maple cap and maple veneer and a rosewood fingerboard.

    How it looks today:

    With the Mules in neck and bridge, new pots, cap and nut:

    Modified SE Bernie Marsden, Fender Strat
    Laney Lionheart L5T-112, Fender Mustang 1

    I have sound. Cannot explain the discrepancy.

    There are several versions of the software on their site, too. Weird site.

    The clip sounds great, and it's such a great looking guitar on top of everything!

    Les. Tasteful playing, and the tone is off the charts. That has an ebony board, correct?

    Thats unreal looking!! WOW!!! Is that kind of like a PRS version of a White falcon? It sounds really alive in the clip.

    I have yet to play an all mahogany PRS. Hopefully one day.

    If you can only have one, thats not a bad one to have! Gotta be black gold as well. One of the coolest colors from PRS ever IMO.....


    Those white and red guitars are really growing on me thanks to this forum. Pomegranate is kind of orang/red, so I am slowly moving in that direction. Maybe a true red or some kind of white see through will be in my future.

    I love both my SC58s. The Raspberry one is very chunky and excellent for any types of rock. But I feel that the Sandstorm takes the cake overall tonally and is all around my best sounding guitar.

    SC58:Flame Maple top, Mahogany body, Brazilian board and Pernambuco neck. 59/09 pups as well.

    Its tough, I keep all of my guitars in different tunings mainly to make sure I play them. But I would have to say that my Emerald Green SC250 is my most resonant guitar. Its currently in an open tuning and I do not have any sound clips but here is a pic.

    '08 SC250: Mahogany Body w/ Flame Maple Cap, Mahogany W/F Neck w/ Indian Rosewood FB



    All my PRS are the same construction all sound great but this one is special.
