    Anyone have any experience or views on these? PRS are not known for acoustics and I'm not sure how well they've been going down - you certainly don't see many here in the U.K.

    I traded a couple of my guitars for a 594 recently and the store has a second hand Angelus in stock. I made the mistake of trying it and was amazed at how good it was. The guy who owns the store said it was the best sounding acoustic that he'd heard. I thought he was just trying to feed my interest but, when I tried it, it was just a beautiful instrument. It was so well balanced and rich sounding and now I keep thinking I need it - which I don't, of course.

    I was nearly tempted, but I thought it looked a bit flashy for an acoustic at first, but it is growing on me now. Here's a link http://www.soundaffectspremier.com/...+listing+ads&gclid=CIDY1d3PuNECFVG6Gwodj4AMEw

    Flash or beautiful, what do you think?

    The private stock angelus are very good guitars, as you observed playing it. I've had a Tonare for several years and Angelus for a couple. Both are worth what I paid and stand up against other high end acoustics very well.

    I think it looks really nice, not too flashy at all. Just good quality wood and workmanship.

    Thanks. Maybe flash is the wrong word. It is beautiful and I guess I don't associate that with acoustics where my expectation is for something relatively plain.

    Your other comments are not helping! :D

    I never thought I would get something that high level, given how seldom I actually play an acoustic. But I found a Private Stock Cody Kilby and took the plunge. While I have no biz owning an acoustic that expensive, I am amazed every time I pick it up.

    I've never played one, but my guitar playing friend who plays a variety of qual guitars lusts after one.

    Thanks Mike, that really helps a lot!! :rolleyes:

    I'll be back up in the area of the store I mentioned next week and will probably have to pop in and have another look. Only trouble is, we all know where that's likely to lead! I spoke to the guy who owns the store and he said that they had sold a couple of Private Stock acoustics but that this one was outstanding by comparison. He said he may be able to knock a few quid off, which didn't help either. I'm sorely tempted yet also determined to resist. I should be able to resist, I'm a grown man for heavens sake!!

    GAS is a serious infliction for which there seems to be no known cure.

    Yes, they are good. Tim, the owner, is a really nice guy.
