Just bought my first PRS a 2013 Custom 22, Black Gold, stop tail with VB and HFS pickups. Full disclosure I've been long time Gibson play (Les Paul and 335) for years I swore I'd never buy a PRS guitars, they just seemed soulless and precious but the CU22 changed my opinion!! Without question the easiest playing guitar I've ever owned. The neck is fantastic, the body is so light and comfortable, it just feels amazing to play. I think the biggest challenge for me is to get used to the voice of the guitar, while it has humbuckers its nothing like what I'm used to. At first I kept comparing it, but am now starting to think that there is a unique PRS voice. The HFS is just killer for gain (through my Orange OR50 and 2x12 cab it just smokes). The VB is the clearest pickup I've ever heard, not exactly warm but has a nice mid focus, but totally different than what I'm used to. Overall while I like the VB pickup I do find it a little cold and bright. I don't know if that's just me comparing it to what I'm used to. I'm reluctant to go down the new pickup route (I hear 57/08's are nice) as maybe I just need to spend more time dialling in the sound. How did others new to PRS find the break in period?
Style wise I play Blues, Soul/Jazz, Classic/Southern Rock, even some twangy stuff.
