just how much better do the guitars get as you climb the prs ladder? I ask because the difference between a MIM strat and a MIA strat these days is very small, Ive owned both and sometimes preferred MIM (the neck was sooo sweet on that guitar!). I played my first base model PRS at GC and thought..."why would anyone buy this?" Compared to the fenders and gibsons and gretsch in that range, I couldnt see it. Sounded good, but did not feel at all as nice as the other 3 I played. Now it was the absolute base model, but thats what I wonder, if a MIM strat can be as good as a MIA strat in some instances, (and I hope not for that $$!) is there really a huge difference in the model or two above the one I played? NOT CUSTOM SHOP, not at all the same question, so please dont mention that.
