    Awesome Awesome Awesome

    I've been a loyal Gibby player for more than a decade, owned more than a dozen Les Pauls, so I'm very used to the LP sound.
    This year, thinking about getting a new guitar since the only one LP I brought with me while moving to the Sates had been neck-broken for 3 times more. PRS wasn't my first choice, but thinking about getting some different tone and taste, I placed my order and with my superb sales engineer's, Derek, help, it arrived safe and sound !
    The first impression of this gorgeous guitar is that beautiful flamed maple top and as soon as I put my hands on the neck, it's soooo comfortable which I was quite doubt if I'm gonna get used to it..
    Plugged into Mesa Rectifier Rec Pre with Tech21 Powerengin 60 cab, it sings. BUT, I gotta say this might be personal taste, the bass quite booming or I shall say, thick but bit mellow...
    I was getting a bit upset, but I decided to give it another chance; so I plugged into PSA-1 and goes to Powerengin 60 as well, WOW, it sounds great after some tweaking, tone is well balanced and playability is awesome awesome awesome...
    Tried with Vox Lil Nighttrain as well, clean tone is sweet, humbucker or coil tapped, crunch is bluesy and in high gain sounds like a wall ..
    I gotta say if you are looking for an exactly Gibby or Strat sound, it won't be your thing; but if you open for a tremendous tone that contains bit traditional Gibby but enhanced and a versatile piece, this is it ! You won't regret a dime...

    Absolutely perfect for me

    Sound: thick, rich, clear, warm, defined, balanced

    Looks: gorgeous, one-of-a-kind

    Feel: like an extension of you

    I own a lot of high end guitars: PRS, Suhr, Gibson, Fender, Music Man and the PRS McCarty 58 has become my go-to guitar. It's so balanced and warm but retaining clarity and definition. It sounds great in every application.
