    Truth. I don’t know that everyone can hear and feel the difference between S2’s and other brands of similarly priced guitars, but for those who can, it’s BIG. I got an early satin standard, and recently an ice blue Studio got its teeth into me and wouldn’t let go. Actually preferred it to the Silver Sky by a fair margin.

    Used: whatever floats your boat. There is tons out there. Check guitar center used with a 1000 price limit

    New: for a short scale, p90 or humbucker guitar, I would say Yamaha hands down.
    For strat types? Not sure. I've had only parts strats for years.

    My main guitars are a parts strat, a carvin h2, and a Yamaha revstar.

    Great options for $1000:
    American Std Tele or Strat
    SG Standard
    LP Trad Pro or studio
    V, Explorer, Firebird
    Partscaster with anything you want.

    This post should be framed and hung up in the TGP Hall of Fame. Really? Lacerations? Got pics? Really, the employee stopped you? Wow that must have felt awesome!

    “You know what, Mark? The other day I met a local housewife from Reno, and she insisted on coming up on stage to shake my hand, look me in the eye and say: “Senator, you keep playing that PRS, we got your back.” <tear>

    I've played the S2 Standard 24 Satin now for just about 3 years. ZERO sharp frets, fantastic playing neck, sounds great (kind of SG-ish) and stays in tune. Couldn't ask for more.

    My new PRS CU22 Semi-hollow SE from WMI is LEGIT!

    Jeez man, it’s Friday. You must’ve had a rough week. Maybe have a beer and relax?
