    I played a Vela today

    I absolutely love my Vela. I did replace my switch though. I love everything about it. The looks, the feel, the tone/versatility.

    Anyone here ever put throback pickups in a PRS

    So I just picked up a gorgeous 2004 blue matteo McCarty with birds. Got it cheap because the guy put duncans in it. I have a set of mxv 102 throbacks I'm probably going to put in it. Anyone ever try throbacks in their PRS?

    Singlecut S2 Tonal Issues

    I agree. And while the electronics in the similarly priced Gibsons are the same as their more expensive lines, I feel Gibson cuts corners on other things. I tried a couple Les Pauls that were in the $900 range that the fret ends were so overhanging the fretboard and sharp that you would cut...

    S2 Sub Par Parts?

    I wouldn't worry about it. I had an old se I bought used back when the bodies had no carve. After years of gigging with it I never had an issue with any of the electronics. I have an S2 I just got and I'm not concerned. No way PRS will put something that's of poor quality in their guitars.

    Mira S2 Satin

    Congrats. I just got a satin S2 Std 24. I hope they make the Mira in satin on a regular basis in the future. I want a semi hollow one.

    NGD - The White, err, Sunburst Whale is Mine!!!

    Gorgeous guitar and case. I'm hoping to get an S2 satin Mira with birds if PRS decides to make them in satin.

    I also added a Tremol no so I could lock it in dive bomb only mode and change tunings during a show.
