Kicks major butt!
I've had this for over a month now, and the woods have opened up a bit in volume, which I was worried about, but it's gradually and quite quickly growing as a guitar, somehow. Appointments, finish, setup, projection, string separation, and tonality is far better than anything else you can buy under a grand, without a doubt. And it looks beautiful! Paid off to put my trust in PRS, and my sales engineer David Mikautadze was really kind and helpful. The only complaint, if any, was some inconsistency in the neck binding, which is just me nitpicking. And I really dislike the case for some reason.Isn't protective enough, doesn't have a lock, the handle is strange, and just generally not something Paul Reed Smith would want to associate with. But my rating is towards the guitar, purely. 92/100!
Also, the bridge and fingerboard is ebony, as their website also states. NOT ROSEWOOD! (I prefer ebony)
