PRS DGT Owners - How do you like 'em?

Messages

I've avoided pulling the trigger on a McCarty for years because the wide fat neck is just a little too big for my taste. Well, it apparently was for Grissom, too, and the new signature model looks almost perfect on paper and on demo clips. I'm a bit hesitant about the 6100 fret wire (my favorite is 6105) but everything else about it looks ideal. I love the idea of the second volume knob, and I really like what I've heard of the re-designed pickups.

So how are the proud owners of this axe enjoying it?

I'm pretty sure that a forum member here has one of the few(only?) DGTs released to the public. The rumor was that there were issues at the factory with the finish, which slowed down the release. I heard one and held one at the recent PRS experience, and it sure sounded and felt outstanding.

I have one and it's a FANTASTIC guitar. Looks great, feels great, sounds great. I love the clarity of the pickups. I never minded the wide/neck of the McCarty--it's just a tad thinner on the DGT.

Thinner in width.
I have one of the first 7 made. It is a great guitar and I am very happy to have it.
Retired my other Bucker guitars.
Met with Paul yesterday at NAMM and there are some very cool things coming this year including a mind blowing amp (don't know how soon the amp will be released to the public), and a new circuit to make humbuckers sound like single coils. It is not a tap switch. It is incredible.

I've owned mine for six months and love it! It hasn't left the factory yet and I've seen it, but I sure do love it.

No, I'm not kidding.

Notice the crack between G string trem hole and the cavity opening? I took this picture while on a factory tour at the PRS open house. They are having trouble controlling the nitro, sure hope they don't scrap the line before they get out the door.

If I ever get another PRS, it would be that (or a McCarty trem). Those look fantastic. Is the goldtop different on the DGT as opposed to other PRS goldtops?

I don't think it's different. DGs fave was just a GT McCarty with a Trem.

I could've sworn there were gonna be McCarty trems this year. I just went to the site and it turns out I was wrong...I guess the DGT is it.

I've owned a McCarty Standard for years, and I've yet to see another PRS model that could woo me away from it, but the DGT has changed all that.

They worked on the pickups, which I like save a few small things (nothing big enough to replace them in mine), it comes in my favorite finish, and it has the PRS trem.

The pricetag will keep me away from owning one unfortunately, but if I ever have the cash laying around I'm going to have to pull the trigger on one of these.
