I've mostly played the classics to this point - Strat, Tele, SG, Les Paul, 335 - but I got this PRS DGT from a fellow TGPer and I'm hooked. It does pretty much what I want a guitar to do.
Thanks much, Julio Iguana! This started out with a drummer friend and me trading files to learn our recording gear. I took a couple of passes at it and when I played it back I thought, that's awfully close to the guitar sound I've been chasing for about as long as I knew I was chasing one. There's some raspiness in there in places that I have to blame on my playing, not the gear.great tone
I think it helps to start by knowing what you're shooting for. I'm inspired by the guitar tones of Mayall era Clapton, Leslie West, Waddy Wachtel, Wishbone Ash. This has elements of those, I think, but doesn't copy any of them exactly. Mahogany body, maple cap, humbuckers on the hotter end of PAFs. Does the Strat style trem on the DGT effect the tone? My guess is it does, but I can't say for certain.I like that statement as I can relate. I heard playback and the wheels were turning. How can I duplicate that sound? Thanks for the reply.
