Very nice!

I've never been very fond of the spruce tops, but I'm sure it's a killer guitar. Piezo and all!

As for that Spruce top..

Honestly, I played about 30 of these things over the last 4 years and honestly I didn't care for the Maple tops. It just didn't sound right as a hollowbody.

The spruce top just did it for me, it's so warm and airy. So far it's amazing!

The lines look great on the top. With the grain, the bridge, and the strings all just moving horizontally it all looks great.

PRS

UGLY! LAME!

Why don't you just buy a Les Paul and play John Mayer and Creed songs? Trendy bastard.


HAHA, that is certainly nice looking. I always liked their hollow bodies, glad you like it.

A little PRS story:

An old friend of mine lives a mile or so from the PRS shops in Stevensville MD. His daughter has been working at PRS for about 10 years. She started with them when the shop was still in the Annapolis area.

She went through different departments, as most PRS employees do, until the managers see who has the best talents for a particular job. After 2 years, she settled into quality control. Over the next couple years, she was made supervisor of her line. Sometime during 1999 - 2000, she was having problems with her control freak department head and decided to move to a different department and learn how to sand and spray finishes. Within weeks, PRS started having QC issues. Guitars were being shipped with flaws. Customers and dealers started complaining.

Joy is now a department head and is leading a team back in the QC department. Customers and dealers are happier, now that fewer mistakes are leaving the shop.

Yes PRS fans, there is Joy in Stevensville.

Whew, I thought for a minute you were going to say your friend got fired for crummy finish jobs.

I thought the state of Texas said you weren't allowed within 200 yards of the dog after the 'peanut butter incident', Jay?

That's a sweet looking guitar man! You might as well send me the JPM. It'll never get used now.
