    Back in my high school days I used to go to my local Sam Ash and lust over the PRSi. I fell in love with a SAS, but assumed my life would never add up to me owning a US made PRS.

    My peasant entries:

    First PRS was this SE single cut

    Sold the SE single cut and made my rounds through several Fenders and Gibsons. Then I saw this one at a local GC and fell in love again. It was an SE Custom 22 in whale blue. I have to admit, best $400 guitar I've ever had. This was coming from a few Fender US Deluxe's and some Gibson LP's. The neck on this guitar slayed the rest. No sharp frets at all.

    Then something happened. After buying a house and realizing what debt was, I decided a US PRS wasn't so scary after all. I then brought this babe home...

    I bought it used about 9 months ago. It was originally a PS spec done by Wilcutt's. Not sure who bought it from them, but I got it from another shop. Here are the specs:
    Santana II
    Curly Maple neck
    Curly Maple fret board with Ebony binding
    Curly Maple top wood with ebony purfling strips
    Black Limba back (with matching electronics cavity covers)
    Curly Maple Headstock veneer with ebony binding
    Santana neck carve with ivoriod side dots
    High Gloss Nitro finish in Red Tiger with black painted binding
    Black Onyx bird inlays and PS Eagle on the headstock
    Santana pickups
    Ebony truss rod cover and tuning keys

    And the coolest parts....all of the hardware is smoked black chrome....pick up covers, the PIII tuners, trem, saddles and trem arm, and even the trem springs are all black. It's a sweet, sweet guitar. It was priced just above what a brand new Artist Pack would go for. Too low to pass up. I did have to part with a couple of guitars to make it work though.

    The last one is a 1990 CU24 that has a short story with it. When Paul was going to Guitar Centers in '90 to have them cary the PRS line, a local GC manager was talking to Paul and he said, "Let me build you a guitar!". Rich agreed and ordered one specifying a dark Braz board if possible and a crazy flame. Rich said they used a leftover Signature body. This Brazilian board is by far the darkest I've seen and the neck is Ibanez thin! The trem also has a factory uproute. I've never seen another neck on a PRS like this one. I bought this from him a few years ago and it plays/sounds amazing.

    Can't believe I haven't plastered this one up with pics yet. I generally never let an opportunity to show it off slip by :)

    My one and only PRS guitar:

    Very happy with it appearance wise. Definitely has some more depth on the top vs the SE I had in the same color. Sounds great, and makes a good partner with my 305. I was debating grabbing one of the satin S2's cause I played one recently and then this trade came along.
