The DGT is a very well thought out guitar that PRS Designed with the help of the artist. The features were unique enough that it appealed to many players. The so-called signature Les Pauls are just R9's with a certain color and some relicing and a piece of Paper stating it's signature model.If it wasn't for the 6100 frets on the PRS DGT I'd probably look to another company. That signature model just offers features that I can't get on another PRS guitar at the price-point.
Until the major companies start offering á la carte, I'll have to go for the feature laden signature models.
I don't like lots of guitar related stuff, but it's not place to dump on other's likes. Yeah, it's a forum and ain't no rich kid - I know what I like and if a company produces it, I'll buy it.
Yes it is marketing, but "kids" are not the market the models he ius ranting about are aimed at. I guess there may be a kid or 2 that can drop $20K on a sig LP, but not many.Sigs are idiotic IMO. But lets face it, they are a marketing ploy. There WILL be those who buy into it, especially kids.
