    Apprehensive on buying a tube amp

    Again being budget conscious have you considered Positive Grid Spark or maybe even a strymon Iridium? They will do a lot of what you're asking about for home use.

    Apprehensive on buying a tube amp

    I think a lot of it is subjective, I’ve owned Fender Blues Jr and most of the Pawn Shop line of Fenders, all obviously not high end amps but good solid candidates. The responsiveness people speak about is lost on me. Not saying you can’t hear or feel it just saying some folks can and some folks...

    What do you think PRS uses as an "experimental line" for guitars?

    It’s funny to me too. Leo Fender’s goal was to create a guitar with exchangeable pieces that was an inexpensive professional instrument, now to recreate his inexpensive design exactly as it was produced in the 50s, it will cost you 4 to 5K. He’s probably laughing his butt off somewhere.

    Apprehensive on buying a tube amp

    At the risk of starting a fight here, I’d ask, do you gig or play in a band where you need to be heard over a drummer or cut through a mix? If it’s for home use (at home volume) I don’t know if you really “need” a tube amp meaning that unless you’re going to crank it (you obviously can get an...

    What do you think PRS uses as an "experimental line" for guitars?

    I think I’ve heard that Paul will randomly go and change small things wherever he think he can make an improvement with the US lines. Doesn’t pay himself much homage or nostalgia to the past. This was according the Lee Anderton I think this was in a shootout between PRS and Gibson if memory...

    Those of you with a Vela

    My take on the Vela I finally got after debating between a used CE or an S2 standard is that it’s like a ballsy Strat with elements of a Tele and SG as well. It handles Americana classic rock really well and although does clean just fine there is always a hint of growl in it’s voice. Really...

    Used SE AND S2 or a CE

    Paul’s budget guitars are now 500 to 999 new so still a luxury item.

    Used SE AND S2 or a CE

    You know you're on a guitar forum focused on mid to high end guitars right? Of course these are wants not needs (unless you make your living as a musician) and even then I think Keith Richards said you could give him a board, 2 nails and a string and he would figure out how to play you a song.

    Used SE AND S2 or a CE

    Like the title say would you rather have an SE and an S2 standard or a CE ( older or current model)? Or all 3 of the aforementioned guitars or an older core (production model)? Yes this is the age old question of multiple less expensive guitars or one more expensive guitar. In this case the...

    If there could be only one....

    Just a bit of fun while we wait for the election results. What would be your one guitar model to rule them all doesn't have to be PRS just nothing like 59LP, 62 Strat, Paul's Number 1,(out of production ultra rare, liberated from a secured vault etc). Try to stay in whatever a realistic price...

    PRS Used Market?

    I was actually pointing out that all of those models on the used market at least from the GC used site seem to be clustered together (maybe they’re clustered high or clustered lowed but clustered they are). I’m my mind even an older core is still a core PRS and an older CE is a core carve with...
