    Weekend With Bernie

    Just curious, did you not like the Bernie sound as is? The Aldrich pups are amazing, but I also though Paul put a lot of work into replicating the sound of Bernie's LP. I have aldrich in a Tremonti SE and they sound amazing, but am on the fence about messing with Bernie.

    Please Help a Confused and Overwhelmed Newb

    I think the issue here is not only the guitar, but the amp, its settings, pedals, etc. There is a lot that goes into tone for sure, and while the guitar plays a huge part, it is only one piece of a large puzzle. What I would do is also try out amps now as depending on what you want or need...

    Santana Knob Positions

    Personal preference I think. Really depends on how you play and how much live tweaking you do of the knobs as you play.

    Might Want To Avoid

    Guitar display/stand or in case?

    Thoughts on the SE Paul's Guitar

    The variety of tones you can get out of a Paul's Guitar is amazing. Lots to work with there for sure

    Finally bought my first PRS.

    The first one is a gateway drug, soon you will have them all over the house. I got EXTREMELY lucky and bought a Signature Paul's Guitar on Reverb for 2400.00. Used of course but in immaculate condition.

    Want to Better Understand Modifications

    Great conversation guys. My takeaway is leave signature models alone, and be selective on SE etc. Thanks as this group is always on top of it in a real-world sense
