Been a few years since I owned a PRS. It was a CU22, beautiful to look at and play, but tone wise just didn't do it for me. It felt pretty sterile, much like a couple of Andersons' I've owned. Beautiful guitars but I wanted something with some character/personality. I gravitated to a couple of Danocaster tele's, one single and one a mongrel(Florence PAF), and also have a Ron Kirn Strat. In watching a Sean Tubbs clip reviewing a Jackson Mcfly, the tones he was getting out of his gold topped PRS really captured my ear. It was a DGT, and it just opened the door again. Got a great trade out of a guitar and added a few bucks to get this beauty...Honestly, did not buy it for the looks, I'm much more comfortable with my Dano's and Kirn "slightly beat" look. I took my pedalboard into the guitar shop and spent quite a bit playing the DGT. Also played the Paul's guitar as well as a Starla S2. It was no contest. At first I was surprised at how much narrower the fretboard was but it took no time to forget about it. Intonations perfect, fretwork and everything else, not sure I've seen a better quality guitar and I've had a few. Fender Custom Shops, Gibson Custom Shops, Andersons, etc...Even my Johnny A I had to replace the nut, do some work on the bridge. The Prs tuners were maybe smoothest I've had on a guitar. And the pickups are all they were cracked up to be...with a caveat. I've been so used to having volume and tone controls wide open on my guitars and just rolling stuff off a bit if needed... and started the same with the DGT. It sounded very good, but not all I expected. After looking at a couple of reviews, I changed my tactic a bit, turned the volume and tone down to 6 on guitar (which is what Grissom talks about doing) and up on amp. Whole other world...The guitar comes alive, the nuances of the pickups really shine whether single or double. I also found initially the neck pickup was too dark, boomy until I adjusted the amp for the neck instead of the bridge...It all came together. Compared to the PRS I've owned, and any other I've played, the DGT is a different guitar. The 11's really work with the slightly taller fretwork. It feels like 10's on my tele's. I've read a number of reviews of guys that think the guitar is a tad too bright, my experience is the opposite. Maybe playing tele's for too long, but this guitar is much darker to me. Versatile as all get out. The tremolo works perfectly, seems to add sustain. The guitar is crazy resonant, fairly lightweight and does give you some tele/strat tones...Absolutely nothing I would change on this guitar save the "shininess" that I will have to get over!
