    The best color for a PRS in your opinion?

    I kinda love Burnt Maple Leaf but only when it doesn't show too much red. Like my Special LTD. (Thx Anderton's for the picture of my baby)

    Leather strap and Nitro finish

    That is what I decided to try 2 days ago ! Not ideal but at least my guitars look better hanging without straps so that is a +. Time will tell.

    Leather strap and Nitro finish

    The wall hangers I have chosen specifically to be nitro friendly and I also have a PRS floating stand that I use for the "currently played" guitar which, if I am not mistaken, is said to be OK with nitro. Like @bodia I use the Hercules ones. I am still looking for a proper fabric tube I can use...

    Leather strap and Nitro finish

    I feel kinda dumb asking this question after so many years but here I am... I recently bought 2 PRS guitars with nitro finish (the super pair that are a Silver Sky and a Fiore). I had nitro guitars before that but they were used and near vintage ones with well worn in finish. I keep my guitars...

    To get or not to get a Fiore...

    Have 4 already, bought my first less than 2 years ago...

    To get or not to get a Fiore...

    Before I got back into guitar I was an avid competition rifle / pistol shooter and GAS has always been a part of me. Taming it is my goal, can't just cure it :cool:

    To get or not to get a Fiore...

    OK so update on this... After emailing many PRS dealers in Europe, I managed to find one in Sugar Moon that is less than 7 Lbs (3,14kg). Waiting for UPS to ring my bell anytime now. Can't wait. After getting a used SE HB II just about 2 weeks ago, I will have to temper down a little while I...

    Swam Ash Special variants, which to get ?

    You are right, thanks for pointing that out. No P90 SAS, Custom 22 with 3 pickups / 5 way switch maple neck. I wrongly called them SAS which they are not. That said I rephrase my question as P90 CU22 3 PU vs NF SAS.

    Swam Ash Special variants, which to get ?

    OK so in (the not that unlikely) event of me getting a new PRS down the road I am now pretty much set on making it a Swamp Ash Special. Of course this is pretty much a question of finding any of those which is not as simple on this side of the Atlantic. But then, which one to get ? I am not...

    A surprise NGD?!

    Congrats, bought myself a used one in black gold this week. Really impressed by the quality of it, be it sound or fit and finish. Amazing guitar.

    To get or not to get a Fiore...

    I am sure Dave is great to deal with but I am in France so that will not work unfortunately.

    To get or not to get a Fiore...

    I am on the lookout for a CU 22 soapbar already, I do have a soapbar Larrivée RS2 I would like to upgrade to a soapbar PRS and so that one is on my list. Thanks ! Thanks for your input. Good to hear from someone that have the same guitars I do. Unfortunately Fiores are hard to come by new here...

    To get or not to get a Fiore...

    I am in a bit of a « struggle » at the moment (very relative of course but hey this is Internet right ?). I am trying to decide if buying a Fiore is in my future. The problem is not if I can buy it, I sure can but I just can’t decide if I shall do so. First of all is it a model that will add...

    Fiore folks…..

    That would be my choices in that order too but I would have enjoyed a white see through so much... Argh, choices, choices...

    Fiore folks…..

    I am in the market for a Fiore too but I just can't decide on a color... Also, do you have an idea of how much yours weight ? They seem to be quite heavy (at least compared to my SS and Special SH that is). Most weights I read are leaning toward 8 Lbs than 7.
