    winged tuners

    Winged tuners WERE the Cat's Meow. Easier than any predecessor, look cool, work great. Then Phase Two proved there was yet a quicker, easier, just as good device. Neither is a deal breaker or maker; they both work so much better than anything sold by Fender or Gibson. But for just pure cool...

    Close to moving from Boston to San Diego!

    I moved from Virginia to San Diego in August 1980; have not moved back East yet, but I did migrate to LA in 1983. Neither is remotely like the east coast: weather, culture, housing, economy. San Diego County is huge, there are dozens of communities. Coastal, inland, north and south. Spend some...

    A Full Understanding of Private Stock vs others?

    PS guitars are speced/ordered one at a time. They are typically a variation on core themes; some more than others. Each guitar is considered unique, and includes a COA and PRSh tatoo. PRS acoustics (Tonare and Angelus) were, for a time, a production run. IIRC, there were signiture models too...

    Thought Experiment - Write Like You Speak.

    Yo Les, you have several issues teed-up at the same time. From my perspective, few people express themselves concisely or precisely, in writing or speech. Including lawyers. Archaic legalese (e.g. "party of the first part", "party of the second part", etc.) harkens to the days that lawyers...

    Stylin' at the Indy 500

    I drove the Indy track as a passenger in a small tour van about 20 years ago. Very cool from that perspective. Empty stands. Stood on the brick finish line.

    Yes. The price was right.

    PRS core line acoustics discontinued?

    Disappointing, but not a surprise. My Tonare is magic, the best among many otherwise great acoustics. But $4K is a price point that stunts the market. Great product. Suck economy.

    Brazilian rosewood fretboard?

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, and maybe even if I'm right, but: The fascination with BRW is basically nostalgia. Acoustic guitar luthiers after the turn of the century were using rosewood for separate fretboards, and the primary wood source was Brazil. Move forward a couple...

    I played my DIII at several gigs until the volume knob fell off.

    Brazilian rosewood fretboard?

    Yes. But only because someone said it was BRW. I do not think ANYONE can determine the origin of rosewood visually. Or hear the origin of wood.

    PRS advice needed...

    From my perspective, the model is generally not the point. Another CU24 may/will not be identical to the specific guitar that was appropriated by your Better Half. This is best demonstrated by the "go to" concept. Many/most people on this board have several guitars; but there is one that they...
