    That Les Paul tone.....

    +1 Both sound great but I just feel like the LP had a little more solid tone and the PRS a little hotter.

    That Les Paul tone.....

    Just like the Fender Strat the Gibson LP has its own sound as does the PRS. I own all three and love each one. In comparing I'd say the PRS has a better feel when playing, The Fender Strat is smooth playing and clean sounding, and the Gibson LP has the better solid feel and sound.

    Looking for Advice on Buying my 1st PRS

    I was sort of in your position about 6 months ago. I have been playing guitar for over 50 years and owned most every make but the PRS. Heard a lot of good stuff and wanted to give it a shot. I went to a forum and asked the same questions, which of course I got the same answers. Problem was I...

    NGD: The big brown truck showed up finally.

    What pickups would be in this "Floyd" Custom 24? They really are hot.

    There is no "Best"

    I think when most ask what is the "best" what they're really asking is what is considered good. I know at least in my case I know nothing about PRS guitars but wanted to try one out without making the mistake of basing my opinion off a POS model. So I may ask which is best just looking for...

    Is relic'ing a fad, or is it here to stay? (Spoiler: not a fad, yes here to stay, but come chat)

    I agree with who said I don't mind good "honest" relic guitars. I know I've put some of my guitars through hell and back so showing some wear is expected. I'm not proud of every ding or dent, but it happens. But to intentionally beat the crap out of a perfectly good guitar just seem bazaar.

    While that sounds like sound advice GuitarDrummer that isn't always an option. In my case I live in a small southwest Kansas city that doesn't have a music store. It would be a 2 1/2 hour drive to get to one where I could just pick a Gibson/Fender/PRS off the shelf and try first. I also work at...

    I agree completely. PRS makes the best. But will they ever have a $500,000 seller? I know there isn't a guitar made worth near half a million dollars, but people seem to be willing to pay it for an old Gibson. I collect collectible cars & guitars for my kids future. I just wonder if PRS will or...

    Well I don't think it has so much to do with say the 1959 Les Paul being worth much because its better, but because it was a major player in a time music was evolving. It played a big part in that evolution. I have a 64.5 Mustang Convertible that drives like sh!t compared to modern cars. Manual...

    Nothing wrong with a few battle scars, although personally I would prefer none, but some of these relic jobs I've seen look like the guitar was used as an oar for a row boat for 20 years. I've got a 42 year old Electra I personally gigged with no mercy that still looks pretty nice. Got a few...

    Without a doubt PRS is making a name for itself. I'm a perfect example. Been a Gibson fan most my life, although I do like Fender as well, but PRS has caught my attention like many others.

    Now replace the word guitar with car and played with driven. Now you see reality. I don't see the problem. Gibson's and Fender's are a commodity you can also play, invest in or both.

    Resale value

    By investment I'm not so much referring to a guitar that will appreciate in value over the years, although I see nothing wrong with that, but more a short term investment. That is to say I'd hate to pay $3,000 for a PRS and decided I didn't like it and when I go to sell I'm lucky to get $800 for it.

    So true! And it's sad. I have always looked at a guitar, well most anyway, as a work of art. Even the mass produced ones are still hand assembled making each one somewhat a reflection of the maker. Or in mass production, the last to assemble it. I know a lot of people buy a guitar with little...

    I'd have to agree about the "hero worship and age.". But will it continue to advance or remain the same? That is to say we know the 1959 Les Paul is currently a collector's dream, but will say a 2016 Traditional, sort of a modern favorite, have the same collector value in 60 years as the 1959...
