Stunning looks, quality and tone
The title says it all. The PRS Zach Myers is a beautiful guitar. The tiger (flame) maple cap on mine looks even better in person than it did on the pictures. The headstock logo on the 2017 is a classy touch. A beautiful guitar is inspiring to play. I love the look of the F hole and being a semi-hollow it's very light.
The quality is everything I expected from a Korean PRS. The setup was perfect right out of the box. I like a "medium low" action Not too low, not too high and that how this came. Pickup height was also dial in and needed nothing. I had to intonate 1 string. Nothing else. I cannot find a single flaw or mistake on the guitar. I wish the "famous maker" American guitars were this consistent.
Tone is like flavor and this is a tone In really like. It's very much in the same ballpark as a Les paul (obviously) but PRS and Zach Myers have put their own spin on it. The combination of the pickups and the semi-hollow body give it a spacious, airy tone but it still keeps the sharp Les Paul bite, especially when you dig in. Back off the volume and use a light touch and it's all sweet cleans. Roll it on to hit the amp and attack the strings and it responds aggressively.
It's better compared to a USA LP than the Epis. Seriously, it's that good.
