    The best color for a PRS in your opinion?

    I don't know if it's necessarily the best, but Red Tiger is totally the fastest color! ;)

    In praise of my Paul's Guitar...

    I've got an SE Paul's guitar, which I picked up as a "stunt-double" for my ME1 and 408 Semi-Hollow, both of which are kind of predecessors in Paul's Guitar lineage. But dang if that SE doesn't hold it's own!

    Modern Eagle 1 vs. Modern Eagle V (Tone comparison)

    Ditto on the brassy neck! So, I've been contemplating a 59/09 pickup swap on my ME1 for several years now, and every time I google up on it, I come across your posts - thank you! Question - what kind of music and tones are you going for? What nuances make the 59/09 the best choice for you...

    Travel Guitar

    Shortly after I got my 2007 Modern Eagle in 2016, I *knew* I needed a "stunt double", as there was no way I'd fly with it, as I'd had 3 guitars damaged in transit before. I opted for a used PRS SE Semihollowbody, and picked one up for $400 It's not a great guitar but fits the bill. I never...

    Should I Take My PRS With Me?

    Bring a less cherished guitar. Not because of the temperatures - I’ve had 3 damaged guitars from air travel. Since my Modern Eagle became my Number One, I bought a cheap used SE for vacation practice. The calmness I feel while in transit is invaluable!

    Modern Eagle 1, in search of soul mate...

    WRT the SSH, how different are the hum bucket sounds from the mainline core models? From the ME1?

    Modern Eagle 1, in search of soul mate...

    Hmmm... 513. Thinking on it, and listening to clips. It sure sounds different. The 509 is interesting too, but I’m not finding any rosewood necks out there. keep the ideas coming folks. Thanks!

    Modern Eagle 1, in search of soul mate...

    BLUF, I'm looking for a PRS that *feels* like my ME1, but sounds drastically different, providing me with a wider sonic palette. I love playing *all* styles of music, and I'd love if I could play them all half decently one day, and I find that different guitars pull my playing style in...

    How to stop bridge posts turning when bridge removed?

    If you have a nitro finish, use green painters tape. Blue can melt the finish!

    Flying with your beloved PRS

    I've had 3 "mishaps" with guitars in checked baggage, and each one was with hard case. So far no issues with gate-checked guitars in gig bags. I used to try to bring it as carry on as per DOT regulations and keep a printout of DOT-OST-2014-0231. I'd whip my copy of "the law" at the gate, but...

    Modern Eagle Quatro vs 594

    I like the way you describe things! Have you played an ME1 much, and if so, how would you compare the 594 and Quatro to it? It's the only RW neck guitar I have, and I'm hooked. I'm also interested in the differences between RP pickups and the pickups in later Modern Eagles, if you can...

    True that... and to get'er in the case for the gig! ;-)

    Lessons Learned - US Parts on SE

    I prefer the Dunlops too, if only for the reason that they still work with regular straps just in case you forget one. One local luthier I know hates them and claims that the screw always gets stripped. Pondering this, I found that you absolutely need to use a thin enough screwdriver that...
