Well, I was toying around with getting a PRS ME Singlecut, and realized for the price I could get a custom made guitar. It seems like Ron Thorn is making quite a name for himself, so I was thinking of getting on the bandwagon while the getting was only 18 months. I visited him at the LA Amp Show and now I'm seriously tempted to get a Thorn singlecut. I sent Ron the following email: "Thanks alot for spending time with me. I've attached a spreadsheet that I've filled out as best as I know for now, but basically what I think I'd like to go with is a Singlecut with Trem, with a chambered Limba body (not sure if black or white), a 5A Quilt Top (preferable one-piece), and an old-growth Brazilian neck (is the fingerboard "extra" or is it a one-piece neck/fingerboard ala McCarty IRWs?). A couple of my thoughts after playing my guitars this weekend: 1. I really like the crisp response, harmonics, and articulation of my PRS Modern Eagle, but I don't feel that it's got the "fatness" or "growl" or "warmth" of my Les Paul. I'd love to get a guitar as comfortable and well made as the Modern Eagle but has the "fat bite" of my Les Paul. I'm not as much into a "dark" sound as I am into the "fatness, growl and warmth". 2. I think on the fretboard, I would like to have only 1 marker on the 12th fret. 3. Not sure about fretwire, pickups, that sort of thing. 4. I went with a trem as I'd love to have the flexibility, but I'd hate to compromise on sustain or "warmth". 5. I'm thinking of getting push/pull on the tone knobs to maybe get a semi-single coil tone for added flexibility. 6. Lastly, would it be possible to get a 25" neck with 24 frets? Just curious since I'm pretty used to CU24's. Not sure if I want it, but I'm thinking since I'm going to for the gusto on this guitar, I'd try to make it as flexible as possible. One other note is that I've found some LPs to have necks that are too wide for me and I'm fighting with the neck when playing it or the neck just tires me out b/c my fingers aren't used to the stretching. I really like the feel of PRS necks and the '60's LP neck. Not sure how to "measure" that. Hopefully this all makes some sense to you. Again, I'm just looking to get in line right now. I'll be continuing to compare my various guitars to find out what I like/don't like about them. I'm not going to a "I want to sound like this..." but more like I want make the guitar have MY sound." My questions to the group: Anyone have any thoughts about this? Do my descriptions/specs make sense? Am I on crack? Instead of wasting time and money on yet another guitar, should I be working on my guitar skills so that I'm actually worthy of a custom made instrument? Thanks in advance!
