    tried a Fiore

    Thanks! LOL…yeah my Kemper Profiling 8-Track Player! Thanks! Yeah, the BHP profiles are great, and Michael at BHG/BHP is a great dude. Not a 57/08 though maybe they based the Fiore-H on one?!? The blue sparkle guitar is my Maximum Guitar Works “Nellie”…basically my dream guitar built for...

    tried a Fiore

    Not that Prestige AZ you mentioned, but I had the Premium AZ224F. Your mileage may vary, but IMO the Fiore has better pickups than the Hyperion pickups in the AZ. (The AZ has possibly more "options" due to the Dyna-Mix switching?) I'm sure that the Prestige-level AZ would be closer in fit &...

    tried a Fiore

    I've had my Fiore for a little while now and absolutely love it...I made a "Quick Look" video for it if anyone is interested in watching...

    2 NGD's...

    I guess "bland" isn't the right word...the Mira just doesn't necessarily give me anything I can't get from other guitars I already have. They are Starla pickups. The Vela gives me some tones I don't get from other guitars in my collection.

    2 NGD's...

    I've been playing EBMM guitars lately, but I recently picked up a couple PRSi to add to the "arsenal" due to getting really good deals on both of them... a used Mira with Starla pickups... and a new 2016 Vela, black with a white pickguard for a "tuxedo" kind of look... The Mira is...

    So what exactly did I get for $899?!?

    I emailed customer service last week and haven't heard anything yet so I figured maybe someone here might know.

    So what exactly did I get for $899?!?

    So does anyone know what the difference between a regular Dallas and this "Derek Trucks Mods" version is?

    So what exactly did I get for $899?!?

    Haven't tried any other guitar yet, but in the hour since I've been playing, my double cut "Junior" with a single Rio Grande Bluesdawg P90 is frickin' awesome through this thing! My other guitars are downstairs in my "studio" so I've only been playing this Junior so far. I'm going to leave the...

    So what exactly did I get for $899?!?

    Gang, I just picked up a PRS amp - Dallas 4x10 black with the charcoal maple front. It has a tag on the back that says Derek Trucks Mods, 8/12 build I guess. I know it's a Dallas 50, but I know very little else about this amp so feed me some knowledge!! What do the Trucks mods do in...

    Lampshade Knob Trade?!?

    Does anyone have a couple of the current PRS Amber lampshade knobs they'd want to trade for a couple of new clear/black lampshade knobs like the ones pictured? I have 2 extra new ones and I'd rather have the amber color ones for a Gibson ES-139 I have, but I'll use the clear/black ones if I...

    Archon Discontinued?

    Well one of the guys that posted said he called to get just the standard black 50-watt head which is why I was wondering. I have one of those, but also one of the limited plum 25-watt combos which I know are discontinued.

    Archon Discontinued?

    A few people over on FB posting that their dealers have told them the the Archon amp is discontinued...surely that's a mistake?!?

    Prs S2 Standard and Custom 24 experience

    I love my Custom 24 S2 now that I did a few mods (as well as my other S2's)...DiMarzio 36th Ann. PAF's and a second push/pull pot for tapping each pickup individually. I don't like the stock VB/HFS or #7 pickups in the S2's...I've put the DiMarzio's in most of mine, and I have a set of Rio...

    PRS Archon vs Prs Custom 50 review

    Yeah, I totally dig my 2 Archon's (25 Combo and 50 Head) more than I ever did my Custom 50...and I loved my Custom 50! For ME, the Archon's just do everything better. Thought I would miss the boost, but easily taken care of with my t.c. Spark.

    New "Ugly" Guitar Day!

    The "new build" replacement: Defintely my least favorite of my PRS guitars. It'll end up being my beater and I'll drag it to band practices and not worry about it getting nicked up. It sounds great though & that's the most important thing. I really like the DiMarzio PAF 36th Ann. pickups...

    New "Ugly" Guitar Day!

    Plays great - fret ends are perfect. I'll try and post a pic or two after work today. They did everything just like I wanted, except for the color! My two push/pull pots, DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary pickups, chrome switch tip, tremolo blocked, Dunlop strap locks, etc. I can't complain too...

    New "Ugly" Guitar Day!

    Well, I don't have to worry about liking or not liking the Whale Blue...the new guitar just arrived and they made the new build Gray Black again! Not sure what happened...we spoke a few times about making the new build in Whale Blue. Oh well, maybe I'll have the only 2015 S2 Custom 24 in Gray...

    NGD - SE Angelus Lifeson

    Congrats Alan! I found my Lifeson SE blends into the band nicely and I think easier than the Guild I was using prior - must be the size. But I still tend to use my P22 more often as it's just easier to use - I mainly got the Lifeson as a "playing acoustic at home on the couch" guitar, and I...
