    Interested to hear everyone's opinion on guitar necks

    I like just about all the PRS varieties. I can get hand cramps on a thin one after a while, but I like them. No real issues playing any necks. If I had a favorite it's probably the W/F.

    Brazilian Rosewood vs Standard Rosewood

    I'm late to this party but I'll throw in here. I can hear a difference between maple fretboards and rosewood fretboards on mahogany necks. I can hear a difference between either of them and a solid rosewood neck of either type. But IRW and BRW fretboards aren't tonally different enough to...

    The chopping block

    I've been thinking of downsizing for a while now but can't find it in me to pull the trigger. I only play about half of them often. The others sit in cases for long periods of time. But when I pull them I remember why I haven't sold them. Still it might be time...

    Help with next move

    Sure, but you don't think that is going to stop us from being stupid with it, right?

    What are the non-PRS guitars in your arsenal you'll just never quit?

    I have a Heritage H150 and a MIM Strat that I don't expect I'll part with. The Strat is a lot like my first Squire that I started on when I switched from acoustic to electric, except is stays in tune better, and the Heritage is as close as I'm ever going to get to a 59 Les Paul. Unless I am...

    Sounds like something you would do Danny. Happy for her, and for you.

    Price Increases on PRS Custom 24?

    When I bought my first PRS it was a 2006 Cu24AP (the green one in my avatar) and the price was astronomical, but worth it, at $3300. You can no longer get the same guitar, but the best price on the closest thing to it is a new Cu24AP at $4700. That's $1400 bucks in 16 years. That averages out...

    Ugly, but I feel the need to try... Ukraine...

    I have two PRS friends in Poland, Mike and Art. Would you be one of them? If so I'm glad your here. If not, welcome new guy. You're doing a great service.

    Ugly, but I feel the need to try... Ukraine...

    Like many above, I have given, and will continue to give, through my church. They are using 100% of the donations they get to buy life sustaining things and shipping them to Ukraine (and Poland for the refugees). They have already been on the ground there for weeks.

    What was the best thing you did for your musical experience?

    The thing that most "furthered [me] along in [my] musical experience?" Getting a divorce. It may be funny but it's also true. I got my 1st PRS a month before my 1st wife moved out. it's a long story but we took 3 years to make it final. I had insomnia through that long period because of...

    Once more into the breach...

    I wanted to do the same thing a few years back. Never found a fit in my area. I did find one band and we were starting to gel after a few practice sessions and then the lead singer took the other guitarist in a mutiny to another group worse than we were, but he got to be the boss. I just...
