    Silver sky fret size

    I tried a silver sky when they first came out but didn't love the vintage frets. My fingers hurt playing it due to rubbing the fretboard too much (I think). I'm interested in the model and have been reading conflicting specs about the current fret size. Some places list it as 55x090 but...

    Silver Sky neck question

    Thanks, just the neck shape. The 7 1/4" radius suits me great and matches several of my strats. I'm just concerned the neck has a little too much shoulder on it for me.

    Silver Sky neck question

    Shorter scale is actually worse. It’s about the amount of shoulder on the neck. I haven’t touched my old tele in years due to the massive boat tail neck. I have several strats that all suit me. The modern c is great, I like the Suhr slim even c, the Anderson even taper is great. I want to...

    Silver Sky neck question

    I have pretty bad arthritis. Over the last few years I’ve reconfigured all of my guitars to have a similar neck profile to minimize any issues. Switching really aggravates my hand and wrist.

    Silver Sky neck question

    I've read that there are a few variations of the SIlver Sky neck profile but I cannot figure out what they are. Which model/year/color? should I be looking at if I want the smallest shoulder possible? I've looked up the depth at a few sites, but that doesn't represent the profile well...

    Vela - semi vs solid body?

    I love the modern C and have it on 3 necks. It's my favorite shape. I'm definitely curious how you like the Vela. Where did you order from? Thanks!

    Vela - semi vs solid body?

    Awesome, thanks. What neck profile do you prefer on your Fenders? I'll be curious how the right arm feels compared to the strats.

    Vela - semi vs solid body?

    I've been a long-time strat player and have decided to get the Vela as my first PRS. It seems like the body shape, contours, and bridge profile should translate nicely to being a comfy guitar and an easy switch back and forth. I love the light weight - it's surprisingly light. I'm torn...

    S2 satin finish question

    I'm convinced. Vela will be the next purchase. I need to find a few dealers that measure the neck and try to get the smallest I can find, since it's on the edge for me. I know Wildwood measures and I'll dig around for a few more. Definitely excited.

    Dang Velas...

    How is the comfort with the right arm on the Vela vs Silver Sky? I’m a strat player and have been considering the Vela as my first foray into PRS.

    S2 satin finish question

    Thanks - the Vela seems like the perfect gateway from the strat world to PRS for me. I'm a little worried about the pattern regular neck and how much shoulder it will have. I'm not a fan of the Gibson necks with a lot of shoulder, it really irritates my wrist. I've played the pattern thin on a...

    S2 satin finish question

    Thanks, that looks great. Is there any more susceptibility to the neck moving? This seems like the perfect transition away from the strat realm.

    S2 satin finish question

    I’m thinking about trying a satin Vela. I’m mostly a strat player but I love the pickup combination and the weight, or lack thereof, is incredible. Is the satin finish just an aesthetic or does it feel much smoother/faster on the hand? I’ve only tried gloss finished S2 models and the necks...

    Vela balance question

    I've been looking for a lightweight guitar to use around the house. Something that won't break my back :-) The Vela has caught my eye and the weights are surprisingly light. I'm wondering if any of them have neck dive? That drives me nuts and after a lightweight SG I've been pretty gunshy...

    S2 McCarty Thinline question

    I appreciate that unlike the SG, the thinline seems to sit in a more natural position when playing sitting down. For me, SG's always sit off to the left more than anything else I play and feel awkward.

    S2 McCarty Thinline question

    I've been a strat player almost exclusively for the last decade plus and have decided to add a short scale guitar into the mix. The S2 McCarty thinline caught my eye immediately since I have wanted a PRS for a while and the pattern thin neck is very similar to the Fender Modern C neck shape...

    Vela comfort/fit - coming from strats

    Thanks. It isn't one I can find locally so it's a bit of a crapshoot :-) Is the fingerboard rolled at all?

    Vela comfort/fit - coming from strats

    I've been playing strats almost exclusively for the last 10+ years. I love the arm contour and the way the guitar hugs my body. I've been itching for a different pickup configuration and a shorter scale to add to the arsenal and am drawn to the light weight of the Vela. Add a toploader...

    Love my new S2 McCarty 594!

    That looks fantastic. What's the weight?

    Have Custom 22's ever had Pattern Thin neck?

    I love everything about the Custom 22 except the neck. I am very much a Fender 60's or Modern C neck shape guy and I like the Pattern Thin that I have tried on CE24's. Is this something I can find if I dig around on the used market or has it always been the larger neck? Thanks!
