    Incoming. The Epic guitar of my dreams. After almost 30 months of waiting

    A little ironic to post this right after my 'investment' video, since this is not an investment at all. Or maybe it could be ;) ;) No, in all seriousness, I specced it out around April May 2021 after a lot of trepidation and going back and forth on many spec choices. The initial estimate was...

    Narrowfield replacement

    Hey guys! There is a PRS Special Semi Hollow I am interested in, but the previous owner has removed the Narrowfield. I can’t find them anywhere. Does anyone know where to get one aftermarket, if PRS will reinstall one, etc? I’d like to buy the guitar but I want to return it to stock. Thanks!
