Help with a PRS purchase?

Not sure I can hold out anymore.

I'm not playing the Country Gentleman much anymore, preferring the old SRV Strat and Les Paul Traditional.

However, I still very much want a semi-hollow body for those quiet, jazz-infused evenings.

But, I also desire the sheer beauty and sleekness of a PRS Solidbody!

I think I will trade in the Gretsch. Any suggestions for a versatile PRS that can do jazz to swampy blues to occasional forays into heavy rock?

I've been considering this for many months. Just want some second opinions.

the Custom 22 or 24 with the 5 way rotary will be give you all those options but paly one before handing over the cash to make sure its the right guitar for you.

I have PRS gas as well. I'd also say the Custom 24 can just about do it all!!! You sure can't go wrong with that one!!!

I've sold my Gretsch guitars, and have switched to mahogany body PRSi. I now have a Starla with a Bigsby. It is more articlulate, has better sustain, plays better, and can do both single and humbucker Gretsch sounds. I also have a Standard 22, with a Dream 90 in the neck, and an out-of-phase Dream 180, in the bridge. The neck P90 is great for mellow jazz sounds. The Humbucker in the bridge works great for overdrive. And, both pickups together, have more quack than a Strat.

A PRS Hollowbody will set you Straight. Get it with Piezo option. Been playing for over 17 years, regretted not getting a PRS HB sooner.

Thank you! Now, as I lay awake here, I can research these!
Gas pains at night before a couple of days off.

I absolutely love the hollow body!

My 513 does all of those things that you're looking for. Best bet is to find somewhere that has the ones you want to try and play them all. Pick the one that feels and sounds right to you.

The Hollowbodys with piezo option are some of the most versatile around. I have yet to play music they AREN'T suited to (well maybe heaviest rock or metal). They're also really light and drop-dead gorgeous.
Lifetime guitars.
