    PRS 22 with a Wald Electronics Unity Gain Buffer

    Great addition to my PRS CU 22. It adds a bit of sparkle and total clarity. It's what Garcia used in all his guitars from the mid 70's on. Acoustic sounding and something different. Peace, James

    PRS CU 22 put to animation

    Discovered a new program today - free download - it puts animation to music with a ton of parameters that you input to get the desired effect. Here's my first go at it with some chill guitar recorded last night. Four Five time signature (or something like that - definitely not 4/4). I'm using...

    4 guitars in one night

    It was an experiment. Here's a series of clips from our Halloween gig. Old country hall in hippie country up here in BC. Light show by Greg Evans with the old school equipment that came from the days of the Vancouver Trips Festival - the real deal. Playing through my Fractal Ultra into a 70's...

    Found it from watching this guy. He's got all the links you'll need.

    PRS Torero with a Schaller vintage tremolo - demo

    Ripped out the Floyd Rose and found a direct replacement that works with the posts, looking not to shred, but go for the superstrat feel in a PRS. No longer a metal monster but still a monster of a guitar. Some folks may have seen this guitar before but not in this context. Backing track is with...

    Just grooving on my customized CU 22.

    I think some folks have seen this axe before. It's got a middle humbucker routed in, and an onboard Unity Gain Buffer/ pre amp installed, and the only stock PU is the neck. Its a Dimarzio Dual Sound in the centre and a Bare Knuckles Stormy Monday at the neck. Its a dead tune, Franklin's Tower...

    PRS and Dimarzio - a great match for me.

    Hey, thanks for that Les. Variety is the spice of life. Experimenting with pickups is just another adventure. Looks like I'm not the only one liking the Super Distortion. It's a funny name for a pickup that sounds so good clean! I'm liking the Area 58's in my USA Stratocaster as well...

    PRS and Dimarzio - a great match for me.

    I think I've got a great combo, a particularly bright sounding PRS CU22 (2002), a Wald Electronics preamp and the Dimarzio Dual Sound stuck between a Bare Knuckles Stormy Monday and a PRS Dragon II Bass pickup. My pick-up settings through the 6 minutes of playing are exclusively on the Dual...

    PRS CU with 3 humbuckers? Why not!

    :top: Busted I guess!

    PRS CU with 3 humbuckers? Why not!

    I think its called Mateo Blue. It's a super sweet colour. When I went to Legend Guitars in Tampa, a simply awesome PRS dealer I tried just about every guitar in there and was really hoping for something orange and Santana like but bonded with this one. In hind sight the blue is stunning and...

    PRS CU with 3 humbuckers? Why not!

    Some purists may cringe at this one, but in the quest for the ultimate tone I carved out a space for a third humbucker in my 2002 CU22. It's got a few other modifications as well. I found space for an onboard unity gain buffer/ pre-amp and a battery. And I swapped out the Dragon II treble for a...

    The Mood of Tone

    Here's one. I recorded last fall and put to a video just after New Years on the beach in Costa Rica with some stuff I caught on my iPhone. It was all about the mood at the time. Somber, mysterious, not knowing what the new year would bring and celebratory. Recorded on my PRS CU22 (heavy mods)...
