I happened to be the first to try a nice looking 10 top cherry sunburst Grissom model PRS today. It had just come off of the truck. It had a nice flame top and weighed 8 pounds even, but it felt a bit heavier than that to me. I plugged into a Blues Deluxe, just so that I could turn it up a little and listen. The tone was well-balanced in all positions, and cleaned up very well. The neck carve was slightly less full than the McCarty WF I compared it to. Tonally, the DGT was more open than the McCarty. The McCarty was fatter sounding and didn't clean up as well. For yet another comparison, I played a Gibson historic R0. The tonal differences were immediately apparent. The Gibby had more highs, a fuller tone, and it was much easier to get pinch harmonics. Both PRS models tended to give more of the fundamental note, with less highs and fewer harmonics. I loved the frets and feel of the DGT, but the tone was a bit too refined for me. I left without buying, and now wonder whether I'll ever find a PRS that I can really bond with. I've owned a number over the years, and I have always sold them. The best one was a CE-24 bolt-on that I bought new in 94 or 95, but I traded it away years ago. Am I just not finding the right PRS, or are my ears too dialed into LPs and SGs?
