I would take this to smooth jazz gig just because, and then take the rest of the gig very serious.Probably depends on the person, and the circle they run in.
For example, I would probably get laughed at and lose some gigs if I showed up with this guitar, but I'm sure there are those who think this is really cool:
So, I think also like 'ant_riv':
Trussart guitars made in Metal,
& many times with 0xided parts
= don't look so cool..
& like 'RRfireblade' said:
we can find cheap kind of guitars like Harley-Benton:
- I got an PRS copy very well,
25'' like a real one
(the Best: balenced Bass & Treble strings = the 0nly 1 of All the World)
but I'd to sell it because was Black..
- got a Strato copy, with nice colour
(use it for my lessons..)
- 2 weeks ago, bought an SG copy made like a real one, like Mahogany & 24 Frets, in Cherry colour
(can sell my Vintage SG, in Black..)
So I have near 15 guitars, many differents,
but 5/6 kind of Strato, every diff
& for shure: a 'super strat' Yamaha
(RGX-421D) with No arm, cause I don't use, but Use the Fine-Tuning,
in 'no colour' : Natural Wood,
the Best 'Colour' for a Guitar I think.
Look what is playing Nancy Wilson:
A very very Great Guitar,
& Proud to Play with her..
(I got 2 Hawk from this 'Wing Serie')
- Bob Morane,
a French Guitar player..
(living in France, near Paris,
so Please don't be wrong to
my bad speaking,
67yo, but always R&R..)
Yeah I am surprised this is the first post mentioning Heritage. Their headstocks are FUGLY AF to me, lol.335s aren't that cool looking to me. Now, they sound great in the right hands.
But looks? Not my cuppa cool. It's those Mickey Mouse ears and the pancake body with violin holes. heheh.
Even worse (looks only) is a 335 by Heritage (H-535). All the uncool of the Gibson version with unattractive headstock to boot.
Taking a bit of a gamble that Ned Steinberger doesn't post here.....Ok, I surrender!
I was only viewing it through the eyes of a teenage indie kid where everyone else was playing vintage gear and Lou had a succession of strange headless things, honestly not trying to offend anyone.
I was previously too cool to be seen with PRS… but then I saw the cover of Sob Rock and now I want both a Silver Sky and John Mayer’s haircut.Paul Reed Smith
"Most people wouldn't want to be seen playing [one]" is a tough criteria to judge without census data, and I suspect it wouldn't apply to PRS, but for sure a significant proportion of players wouldn't use one, even in the knowledge that they are extremely well built and sound good.
To be fair, Ned's achieved a lot more than me in the music world so I should probably wind my neck in a bit - mind you, so have Splatt and Husky who both objected to my Lou Reed comment hence feeling a bit bad, I never like to piss off good people on here.Taking a bit of a gamble that Ned Steinberger doesn't post here.....
