Congrats on your killer Fire Red Fire Burst! I got one in Antique White a few months back. Such a pleasure to play, and the tones it delivers are great. But like a strat, the 2&4 positions have the treble/brightness dropoff. I compensate for that by using my Keeley compressor, with a boost in...
Not sure if mentioned already, but have you tried any supplements to ease your arthritus? I had it in my shoulder. My Dr said it was due to aging. Recommended that I take glucosimine, which I take daily, along with MSM. These eased my symptoms substantially. Best wishes.
I got a new Studio about 2 months ago. I rate it right up there with my Collings and Grosh.
The NFs are like beefier singlecoils, and the Low Turn HB is perfect for this guitar. The trem bridge is a joy and feels smooth under my palm. Mine is a solid color in Antique White, with the natural...
I saw my Core Studio on Reverb. The dealer is a 2 hr drive. I went there in person and got 10% off. Easy to understand, if you deduct Reverb and Shipping fees. Really happy with my deal and the guitar. Just my experience.
Gotta love the Patten neck! Thru my Fillmore 50 combo, the NF pickups are clear and very full bodied. The neck NF is fat and stratty...middle is useful, and the 58/15 LT bridge pu is right up my alley, and well balanced with the NFs. Happy picker here!
Welp, I succumbed to my desires and drove 2.5 hrs to San Diego to score a new Antique White Core Studio. The guys at Pitbull Audio are very cool. Got 10% off, and a free set up. It was worth the drive. It's kind of a non-blingy PRS, The maple binding is a nice touch, and you can tell the build...
Got Wide Fat neck, right? My favorite...the Pattern carve comes close.
I had a '01 Goldtop Singlecut, was not happy with the #7s. I went with Dimarzio 36th Annies, and for me, it was the icing on my PRS cake.
Congrats and enjoy your awesome Singlecut!
Did that one have the Pattern neck? Isn't the Pattern PRS' current biggest carve? My Paul's has a Pattern, I have bonded with it. It is "almost" as big as the ol' late great Wide Fat (had an '01 Singlecut with W/F).
