Congratulations. Alot of people never find their "ideal" guitar.

Just because you play a PRS exclusively, doesn't mean you can't hang out. Don't be a stranger.

Leaving Ibanez guitars

Am I the only one that is not that impressed with PRS guitars?? *There nice and all but I don't think they are that great. *A Les Paul has more sustain (but are heavier I guess), Any Jem or RG has a much better Trem, the I prefer the les Paul or Jem pickups (PAF or Breed, I don't like the Evos) and I think that the necks are just ok. *All the ones I have seen have only 22 frets. *

They are good but don't do anything really well just alot pretty good. *I would rather switch to a the guitar that does what I want great.

On my 3 section guitar stand: *Jem DBK, 54 les paul and 74 tele custom.

Nope, I'm not that impressed with them either, I'm sure they're great guitars, they're just not for me

Leaving Ibanez guitars

Though I do love my PRS', I've hardly given up on Ibanez. *I've still got one of each swirled JEM & UV, a BFP, LNG, a JS10, a Crystal Planet and a few others. *For what I'm doing right now, the PRS & Strat just seem to work better. *I've never been much of a tremolo guy, so my PRS' have fixed bridges and my Strat is blocked. *Deep down, I think I'll always be a JEM man, but...I agree that there is a tool for every job. *

I am expreiencing the same thing. *I went to a rehearsal tonight, and initially had planned on playing the Jem all night, but after two tunes, I put it down and only picked it up again to pack it up.

The rig will do it, and with my "rig" (or lack thereof) the Jem is a guitar that would suit me in special circumstances, but not in the majority of the things I am playing. *If only I could play two guitars at the same time.......

NOW - who's got the comments about how many guitars I've moved along? *I guess some of you are flying below the radar........and I thought I had a lot of guitars in the last year! *

Tell you what, I'll take all of your Jems off you for $200 as you won't be needing them anymore.

It's nice to hear you've got what you want. I like the idea of a swirled PRS, though. Photos, PLEASE!

I'm still searching for mine, in the meantime I'll play my 7620 and my Strat (took the existing finish off, added an antique walnut finish/stain, in the process of throwing a set of EMG hums w/a nice new pearloid pickguard) I'm not completely happy with the black finish on the 7620 nor the fretboard wood, but everything else is just right. I tend to have to clean the 7620 whenever I touch it, but the Fender is oblivious to even the greasiest of palms.

I have never been dedicated to one guitar. My main is my old 560 swirled but I have LP's and Strats that I play also.

PRS's aren't my cup o tea, but thats just my hands, that's all.

If you only play one type of guitar you are missing out on a bunch of sounds IMO...

I have an Anderson on the way and I am psyched to get it....

My Tom Anderson strat is a all walnut body with a all rosewood neck and fingerboard and koa inlays and skunk strip its walnut body makes it very heavy and it makes it smells like an old cigar box. it has a gold pickguard and Anderson pickups its cool but I could not play it all not its heavery then a lp.it was a satin finshes that I have to wax up about once a month. *
