    What picks do you favor for playing with your PRS?

    This thread made me curious about trying other picks. So I found 3 variety pick packs at my favorite local shop. Dunlop has a 12-pack of Light/Medium, a 12-pack of Medium/Heavy picks and Clayton has a 6-pack (I'm in Oregon, Clayton is in Oregon and is a relatively small company, so I like to...

    SE line = Bad pickups

    I just got a 2020 SE Standard 24 with the 85/15 pickups about a month ago. When I first got it I was surprised at how bright the tone was. So I lowered the pickups to taste - I lowered the bridge PU high e side more than the bass E side - and I'm loving the taste. I tend to be running the Tone...

    Is weight a deal breaker?

    I'm wondering if it's a particular piece of wood that "speaks" as Derek puts it. Doesn't Gibson use mahogany for the SG? Maybe some pieces of mahogany sound better than others? I don't know - I'm just asking questions. I've had my SE Standard 24 for a few weeks now, and it sure speaks - just...

    Gorgeous guitar. And I'll ask the newby question: What does "wood library" mean?

    NGD- My first PRS!!

    Good golly, Miss Molly, I love this guitar. The tone, the way it plays, I can still stare at the wood grain for far too long. Thanks for the welcome, y'all. I'll try to get a shot of the grain in the body in focus. But seriously, I'd rather be playing it than playing with photos. Cheers.

    NGD- My first PRS!!

    Third try posting a photo - looks like I need to learn how to focus (but I would rather be playing it, so I think I will do just that.)

    New appreciation for PRS SE Line

    I am also really impressed with the quality of the SE. I just got my first PRS and it's an SE Standard 24 Tobacco Sunburst. You can call me crazy, but I didn't want the carved top or veneer. I love the gorgeous top, the gorgeous back and the neck is perfect. But I haven't figured out how to...

    NGD- My first PRS!!

    My dream came true. I have wanted a PRS forever. But I haven't had the spare budget for a new guitar for several years. No problem though, I have enjoyed playing more affordable used gear: '08 Epiphone SG that I picked up real cheap last year (SG and case for $150), and a ~1990 Alvarez Dana...

    Ordered an SE, disappointed

    My Standard 24 Tobacco Burst arrived today and it far exceeds my wildest dreams. But wouldn't you know that my phone and email lit up with work today. The joys of being a self-employed IT jockey. Pick your own hours they say: either the first 12 or the second 12 ... sometimes both. I'll work on...

    Ordered an SE, disappointed

    Aaaack!!! I placed my order last week, expecting a short delay - you know, a couple weeks or maybe a month. My Sweetwater sales guy called and said it would be the end of November. I figure, well that's cool, because it would actually be near my birthday. He calls today and says it shipped. They...

    It definitely looks like you have something to show for your addiction.

    Ordered an SE, disappointed

    Uh Oh. Well ... I don't do drugs. I don't smoke anything. Heck, I don't even do Starbucks. I guess if I'm going to be addicted to something, I might as well have something to show for it. Thanks, I suppose you warned me.

    Ordered an SE, disappointed

    I ordered an SE Standard 24 Tobacco Sunburst. Delivery date is 2 months out. I'm hoping that without the maple cap and veneer it will be lighter and will resonate better. Cheers!

    Ordered an SE, disappointed

    Interesting (weird) thread. I've wanted a PRS forever, but never had the budget, and since the Rona is still going around, I don't want to go to a store or to anyone's house to check one out. So I ordered one and I came here looking for information. But I find people talking about feeding...
