Well I had been wanting to get my hands on one of these larger bodied PRS acoustics since they came out in 2009. I had played one of the super pricey $13000 Angelus Private Stock instruments at my local GC a while back and I remember thinking it was quite nice but not a 5 figure guitar. These instruments for sure compete well in the mid $5k-$6k mark though in my opinion. This one I'm demoing is from 2010 during the Steve Fischer era. Its a custom model with Adirondack Spruce over Cocobolo. It has the PRS pickup system but it wasn't used during this recording. The guitar has a very smooth and rich attack and its quite responsive!! It reminds me of some of the Ryan guitars I've played which is a very good thing. It also is some what similar to the newer Goodall Standards I've played which is another reason why I quite like the instrument. It feels and responds like a fine finger style guitar built by a solo luthier but yet it takes a pick quite well also. The Robson tuners are quite pretty and are very smooth and seem to hold a tune well. The top on the guitar is quite thin and the back and sides are a bit thicker than other builders do. The Cocobolo and dual 9v batteries for the pick up make this instrument heavier than some acoustics you'll find. Not quite McPherson Heavy if you know what I mean. All the way around I'm pleased with my purchase. I'd like to play one of the Euro Spruce over Mahogany ones that were quite common. Here's the video of the guitar I did so you can get an idea of the tone.
