    I know there are some of these threads running on other sites, but figured I would start one here. If you can't stand PRS, I understand, I was never a PRS fan until I tried this guitar. All the same, please keep the PRS hate elsewhere.

    So... this guitar, incredible is all I can say. Can go Gibson spirit in the HB positions, kind of a tele vibe in the split coil positions. Sustain for days, one of the most resonant guitars I have ever laid my hands on, feels alive, cuts through the mix without ever sounding harsh. Simply a work of art and, after a few months now, I am more and more smitten every time I play it.

    Now for the photos - some with no strings... Brookwood leather strap, Bob RULES! This strap feels as good as the PRS looks.

    I agree with 100% of your'e post. I just got an 11 DGT White/Moons, and it's a fantastic sounding and playing instrument.

    My next guitar is likely going to be a PRS. I learned my lesson though, I can't play very well on wide thin necks so I'll be looking at one of the fatter ones.
