After a lot of soul searching and a lot of research and thanks to a PRS Rep that didn't get back to me I pulled the trigger on a new Blacktop Strat in Sonic blue and Rosewood. To make the deal work the salesman offered to drive 2 hours to get it. Then it started to snow then I sliced my finger requiring 5 stitches. I'm a chef. I called the music store to tell the salesman not to bother but he already left. I picked the Strat up later that day. I took it off the wall tonight just to check it out playing it with my good fingers. And I have to tell you it really sings! I have owned a few Strats in the past American and Mexican and this by far is the best one yet. Its going to be a long couple of weeks before I can play it.
