    I honestly believe PRS is making the best guitars out there right now at any price point.


    so lets see yours to spread the GAS!

    Thanks, it took me two years to find a Core Starla with Birds, Bigbsy, and original pickups in Vintage Cherry for the right price.

    The core models are a little harder to come by these days and you have to filter through so many S2 listings to find them. Every time I would find one it was the wrong color, dot inlays, hardtail, an S2, or had the pickups replaced.

    I got a great deal on mine it was actually listed as an S2 but I could easily see that it was a core model, especially with those hollow Birds. Funny thing was after I found it I saw a similarly priced one on Reverb.

    The pickups on the Starla are amazing. It has a very unique tone. Kinda like a Junior meets a Telecaster meets an LP. All my other PRS have a fairly similar tone but this one has a sound all its own.

    Sadly, the DC3 is gone. Happily, it’s been replaced with a few that aren’t pictured.

    PRS guitars are so pretty. I live fairly close to the factory and toured it recently. The highlight was the custom rack.

    Wish I had a picture of it - who knows maybe some here is the owner. This one in particular was a black finish with the grain filled with white, pretty cool effect from both close up and far away. It's sort of forever burned in my mind in association with the brand.

    I was on a PRS kick for the past several years, and I totally agree that PRS is building the best guitars on all levels.

    For me, after owning a couple of really nice PRS guitars, and playing some other really nice PRS's, I realized that after playing Gibson and Fender guitars since 1957, the sound and feel were just too ingrained in my head to live with anything else but a Gibson or Fender.

    I got away from them for awhile, but I could not stay away and be satisfied. The trouble is finding just the right Gibson, whereas with PRS, you could blindly trip over one, and it would be a great guitar.

    I found that I am the same way with amps. I prefer Marshall, and Vox. For some time, I was playing other make amps. I loved Diezel, but some other brands were not satisfying my Marshall/Vox fix. Only when I went back and played the original amps built by the company whose amp sounds I preferred, did I realize that I should have just stuck with them all along, and not tried to find their sound in boutique builds.

    Such is life.

    This gets played regularly, modern bevel top.

    No pretty little birds here... This one has a lot of work on it. Previous owner gigged it a lot and during some mishap had mostly broken the neck from the body. Here it is just after steaming the neck off, the white part in the neck pocket is all that held it down. Corner splits are from the neck tongue and no attachment up the sides when I got it.

    Turned out alright. Some design mods away from stock appearance.

    I've tried to like PRS guitars over the years but none ever stuck. Here's the only PRS I currently own, a "Pauls Guitar". Beautiful guitar, plays nice but it's likely to not stay either...something about the sound of PRS guitars that just doesn't sit right with me.

    My 2013 P22 in Orange Tiger. Sounds great and it's got me wanting an S2 Studio something fierce!

    That 509 is crazy good looking! How does it stack up to more traditional pickups? I've been thinking about grabbing one of these or a Suhr SSH for my next guitar but have been kind of concerned about the single coil tones
