    NGD - Private Stock Modern Eagle V

    I just got my first PRS. I have long been a loyal fan of Gibson and James Tyler but this ME5 really blew my mind. I just fell in love with the new pickups and Northern Lights finish. The curly maple top sure is flamy. The TCI-tuned pickups are great and the coil splits on both PU's are...

    NGD - Private Stock Modern Eagle V

    My first ever PRS guitar. I just fell in love with the new pickups and Northern Lights finish. The curly maple top sure is flamy. I have long been a loyal fan of Gibson and James Tyler but this ME5 really blew my mind. TCI pickups are great and the coil splits on both PU's are fantastic. I am...

    Comparing my '08 PS Custom 24 with a Les Paul Custom

    So folks, here's my weekly video update for your entertainment. This time, I put together two guitars that found me. The faded Indigo Burst Custom 24 was literally brought to a shop in central Tokyo hours before I spotted it, and thanks to the previous owner's very thoughtful mod (replacing a 5...

    NGD: My dream PRS Private Stock

    So folks this is a special one and a long one. I think this qualifies as a short story or maybe even a novella. I have traditionally been a Les Paul player (played only an Epi for about 10 years) and started getting into PRSs about 4 years back. My first, a Custom 22 didn't really rock my...

    The Hansomatic Collection

    If you don't have a 'harem' thread of your own, clean off the couch and break-out the camera. It's good for you and it's good for those of us who love looking at guitars. Based on discussions with my insurance provider - and with PfennRock (AKA "11top") - maintaining clear photos with date/time...

    NBD- The Journey to the Bottom continues...

    So, I've been learning bass since June, and things have been progressing rather rapidly. I've always been interested in the Grainger, because it's rumored that its pick ups are the progenitors for the 513 and the 509 pick ups. Well, I had originally gotten a production Grainger 5. It's a good...

    Santana Hollowbody?

    Hey all. Curious if anyone here has any experience with a Santana Hollowbody? Found a PS model online that seems to tick all the boxes for me - hollow, 24 frets and a trem being the chief motivators. Unfortunately the guitar is across the country from me and they seem to be quite rare, so the...

    Anyone have experience with the PRS Locking Saddles?

    I know these have mainly been used on Private Stocks or PS-level limited edition guitars, but have any of you folks spent some time with the PRS Locking Saddles? I’m a huge fan of the Floyd Rose, so I was curious how the tuning stability was on the PRS locking saddles for a good deal of...
