I had sold a bunch of gear and was in the market for a new axe. I have owned a couple Les Pauls, never really found the right one for me, but just assumed I would probably get another at some point. Then I was made aware of this awesome instrument. First of all, the fit and finish is super high quality. It's my first and only PRS and I have to say, pretty amazing level of quality workmanship. The balance and feel of this guitar is great. The neck is great for me. It's chunky but not as chunky as some Gibsons. I would describe it more in the direction of a 50's strat...it's just a great feeling neck. Larger fret size-also a lot of fun(awesom fret job btw)...bending and vibrato easily achieved.. Tone-there is lots of it coming from this guitar. The pickups are really amazing. As a previous reviewer pointed out, you can get a lot of different styles. Through my rig the pups clean up nicely w/the volume knob then also can get dirty w/the volume knob. (I'm using a Deluxe Reverb amp-no master volume/gain). That's actually something that previously w/my other guitars has been hard to achieve for me w/o losing a ton of volume....DGT pups do it nicely. With the pups tapped you can get some cool tones, a little stratty at the neck, a little teleish at the bridge. My personal opinion is that it is at its best humbucking, but I don't hesitate to use the single coil options on certain tunes. This is a fun fun guitar. Also, I like versitile instruments, and to me this is a very versitile instrument. It's an easy playing guitar if that makes sense. Lastly, Sweetwater was great to work with. Thanks!!
