Twice as Nice
I am embarrassed to say this is the only guutar I've ever purchased twice. I
am a bit picky with my guitars, after owning 2 dozen or so. I am a huge PRS fan after numerous disappointing experiences with Epiphone and Gibson.
I love a good strat and own a couple but I wanted an LP style guitar that gave me different but equally rich and resonant tonal variations from my CE23 and Mira.
So i initially purchased a Gibson used with Nail Bombs in it from another online site, and it was delivered on time. It was beautiful but heavy and I got nothing tone wise from that guitar I couldn't get from my Mira
As I said I've owned this guitar before and meddled with it - putting a PRS M in the bridge and a Starla pickup in the neck. It was pretty good but I knew I screwed up and the tech I had put them in really did not do a great job.
But I saw this guitar discounted and rememered that I really loved th ZM the first time around so I took the plunge. She is everything I love in a guitar...aesthetically, tonally, weight-wise, and playability. Shw resonates for days, screams when overdriven, chimes with clarity and oozes musicallity.
I chose this over the S2 Singlecut because this guitar plays and feels as easy and comfortable as my CE24, it has the pattern wide neck which fits me perfectly and the shorter scale makes some of the Blues riffs I love to play.
If this guitar is on your radar, it is worth twice its price and all PRS guitars despite where they're made are inspected and set up here in MD USA.
As far as my relationship with Sweetwater, the only complaint I have ever heard is from my wife who dreads seeing the deliveries from them. Delvin is always outstanding and follows through on what he promises and delivers more than I could ask. If you want a singlecut....you cannot go wrong. I know because I have owned 2 and the one I sold didnt last a week at the shop I sold it to. Play on all. I hope this helps.
