    Very Nice Guitar

    I ordered this guitar because I wanted a 24 fret instrument. I was a bit hesitant at first to select the "Blue Crab Smokeburst" color but once it arrived I was quite pleased. I worked with Stuart Niven on the selection and purchase. I requested that he have it setup with 9's on it and he was more than accommodating in getting that done for me. Once it arrived I found it to be a very nice guitar. Setup was perfect, the guitar only needed minor tuning and it was ready to rock. I've had it now for over a month and have changed strings on it once. It only needed minor intonation adjustment. I put the same gauge strings on it but different than what it came with. I like Fender strings and I use them on both of my strats. I use Gibson's on my Les Paul's. After string change and adjusting the intonation a bit this guitar stays in tune quite well. I am impressed. The neck is a bit wider than my strats and even the LP's but I like it. I have big hands and I really like the width of this neck. If your thinking of purchasing one of these, go play one. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. The locking tuners tend to keep this guitar very stable even with the tremolo. As far as the color, the "Blue Crab Smokeburst" is almost a deep purple. You can tell that some very find craftsmanship went into making this guitar. The only reason for the 4.5 rating is this guitar comes in a "gig" bag and for the price you would think PRS could include a solid case, but that said this is still a very nice guitar. Thank you Stuart for your help in getting me a very fine instrument and getting it setup the way I like it.

    An OK guitar is what they say...

    Most of reviews / forum posts i read before i purchased this guitar had conflicting opinions, one of the advantages of reading online!
    When i unpacked the guitar and hooked it up with my old pocket amp and played it, it was simply awesome. I play prog. rock, classic rock and hard rock mostly at home and with friends. I've been playing for over 10 years and do not gig as such, but i'm sure this is a fine on-stage instrument.
    The single coil sounds good and the humbuckers are warm and nice. Overall, a very versatile instrument, but not a heavy metal guitar.
