Gigging musician; rock, heavy metal and red dirt
Hot rod guitar!As a collector of high end PRS guitars-very impressed with this Korean made model. Right out of the box, setup was good; in fact, rehearsed with that day thru a Marshall 1974x and discovered the flexibility of this axe. The EMG's were what I was after in a PRS guitar-NOT disappointed. Using it for the downtuned modern rock and red dirt songs we perform, it sounds great! That is thru Marshalls and Boogies. I found the key to the tonal variety this guitar offers is the tone knob. By rolling back on the tone, you can get a decent fat humbucker sound. You can brighten the sound when using thicker distortion 'round 8 to 9. here it nails the red dirt sound of Alldean and Houser. Nicely compliments the other guitarists strat. Of course you can bring on all the brewtality running wide open if needed. Even playing some short slide licks on it using my favorite ceramic slide! Overall, well constructed very playable PRS for you EMG crunchers like me with tonal flexibility. The look of this guitar definetely evoked the "WOW" response from bandmates. Great deal for a PRS axe!
