    My first PRS!! First impressions... (it's a long one)

    Okay hey guys, update on my "First PRS NGD" thread. Before I start, the seller actually found the tremolo arm and sent it over to me! Just a disclaimer before I get into it, THIS IS NOT A HATE THREAD!!!! This is just my first impressions, and most importantly MY OPINION! I am not bashing anyone...

It's a 1999 which is the first year of production for the short-lived left-handed core series. I will post another post in a few days...

    I'm in a pickle... left-handed PRS Tremolo Arm (USA)

    Hey guys, I am new to the PRS world, I just got my first PRS this week (a 1999 PRS Custom 22) which is left-handed (first year of production lefty). The only issue is, the guitar shipped to me without a tremolo arm. I've done extensive research online, and I can safely say that I have been...

    NGD My first PRS

    Hi all, New to the forum. Got myself my first PRS today. And I couldn’t be happier with it! Having been a regular Gibson player, I am now a convert! Got myself a near mint Custom 22 20th anniversary. The 10 top look amazing IMO, and just playing the guitar is so much different to any others...

    NGD: CU22 Piezo Maple Fretboard

    A/B'd that guitar against another 4 USA customs, I'm happy to report it's absolutely amazing! My custom 24 (the brown one I'm holding in the picture) was already quite present, bright and sustained particularly well when I bought it. This CU22 has the same sustain, slightly less low mids and...

    NGD Custom 22 Rosewood Neck

    I bought a 1997 PRS Standard 24 last year and that guitar was the first guitar to really open my eyes to what PRS is all about. Ever since then, I've been on the lookout for a Custom, especially one with the unfinished rosewood neck and a stop-tail. Having never played a guitar with a solid...

    Non-Locking Tuners on Core Custom 22?

    So I recent acquired my first Core PRS, a 2001 Custom 22. What is interesting about this guitar is the fact that it does not have locking tuners. The tuners do have a PRS logo on the back and look very similar to SE tuners. I contacted PRS Customer Service and they advised that during the...

    First PRS en route!

    Hey all, I scored a slightly modded SE Custom 22 Semi Hollow on Reverb for 350 bones. Seller changed a few things: pots, caps, bone nut, and a Porter H90 in the neck/Porter Anthem PAF in the bridge. I'm stoked for it to show up, but I'm a little confused about one thing. I know it's older...

    NGD: '96 CU22 10 Top

    This post should probably be titled New Guitar Purchase since I just snagged this yesterday from CME and it hasn't shipped yet. 1996 CU22 10 Top. Not sure what they call this type of maple. Sort of a quilted flame. Nice grained natural back too. I would imagine this is Vintage Yellow, but CME...

    Talk me off the ledge... S2 Semi hollow custom 22 sounds dead

    Hi, I am so glad to finally be a member of the exclusive PRS club:) I bought a new S2 Custom 22 Semi Hollow and I absolutely love the guitar as far as looks, playability and pretty much everything except the sound. To me it sounds ok when picking lightly, but when picking individual notes a bit...

    PRS Custom 22 - Tone pot issue

    Hi All, I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some guidance. I recently picked up a 2010 PRS C22 (lefty) and noticed that (1) the push-pull hardly makes any difference and (2) the tone control doesn't taper, instead quickly phasing in at about 3 on the dial. I'm not sure if anyone ever...

    Not so NPSGD...

    Hello everyone! I'm following PRS for years by now, although I never had the cash to buy one. There was a time I completely forget about PRS as a whole, but a decent reminder in terms of a simple Guitar Review on youtube got me addicted again. From then on I watched literally every factory tour...
