    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:



    Completely Stock:



    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, POD HD 500X
    Wishing for a U.S. made Blue Bernie!

    I have sound. Cannot explain the discrepancy.

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

    It sucks that the PTC will no longer retrofit 408's into existing instruments.

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

    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'm torn between my Navarro with BKP Cold Sweat pups and my McCarty. Both have Brazzy fingerboards.
