    Deleted since I apparently broke the rules

    It’s against Theatre Rules to dream in the theatre. The theatre cops take the Theatre Rules very seriously, especially the one about dreaming in the the theatre.

    58/15 LT vs 58/15 MT Help

    As far as I understand it, one of the coils in the MT’s has extra turns on it which are only engaged when in split/single coil mode. In humbucking mode, the overwound coil is tapped, excluding the extra turns and leaving you with two equal coils. As a humbucker, the MT should in theory be the...

    What I do not like in PRS guitars

    I'm not a huge fan of how spread out the controls are on most models. On stoptail guitars it's not a problem at all, but if you've got a trem arm, it's almost always in the way of at least one of the controls wherever you leave it. This can sometimes make it difficult to change something quickly...

    PRS TCI Pickups Explained

    I've always been under the impression that the TCI process is basically a more considered selection of components - specifically pots - when wiring up the guitar.

    Is SE 24 playing position (fret hand) more away from your body than a 22 fret model?

    advice please...first PRS

    You've got quite a few options which meet all your preferences. As you say, 594 Thinline is a good option but you might not like the 2Vols/2Tones. The CEs keep it simple from a control perspective, plus there's a semi-hollow version if weight is a main concern.

    Artist Bashing Trend.....

    The "if you don't like it, don't listen to it" advice works both ways. You can't stop someone talking nonsense. The only thing you can control is whether you let that person's nonsense become your problem.
