CR's PRS Shoot-out ---Stripper vs DGT, Riza went up against the DGT Burst

Great video and nice playing. Personally, I think the DGT killed! The stripper sounded good, but like it needed to have the blanket removed. It lacked the sparkle and expressive personality of the DGT. Of course, as a DGT owner, I'm probably biased.

The DGT does have that sparkle/twang to it. The Stripper has a bottom end to it that's not coming across in the video. I almost changed the EQ on the amp when I switched guitars but I wanted the differences to be heard. I would add a little high-mids to the stripper when playing live. The stock 57/08 in the bridge has a bit more sparkle to it but not the same girth as the DGT pup.

Good comparison. I too liked the DGT sounds a little more, but that's coming from a Strat player. The Stripper did seem to have a stronger midrange punch, though.

Don't know ... for my tastes the DGT had too much edge to it in general ...
There was more clarity with the stripper ...
the little funk groove you did sounded a ton better on the Stripper ...
In fact, it didn't sound funky at all on the DGT ...

Also, you seemed much more at ease playing the stripper ...
Your licks seemed a little more in the pocket & it felt to me as though intuitively you were connecting more with the Stripper ...

My vote goes for the Green one ...

Thanks for the well done comparison ...
Was well intended to give the DGT the vote without even watching the video ...
So glad I didn't ...

You know, I FEEL more in the pocket on the Stripper. Maybe it's the scale length or maybe just the honeymoon phase. But you are right, I'm really connecting to Riza. It's one of those guitars that feels right, right away. I have a feeling it will change how I look at future purchases from now on. They will have to measure up to Riza now.
Thanks for the comments!
