    Special 22 vs Swamp Ash Special

    ...besides the obvious semi-hollow and 5-way blade, what are the biggest tonal differences between the core Swamp Ash Special and Special 22? Mostly just curious as I am not currently in the market for another axe (and when I am, it will most likely be a CE24 or 408).

    SE SAS Charcoal

    Got here this AM, all 8.6 pounds of charcoaly goodness. Played the straty-esque tones back to back withe my maple SE silver sky and they were pretty dang close. Buckers sound good as well. This looks like it will be very versatile and looking forward to trying it out in band setting on Wed...

    Your favorite/preferred guitar(s) for Narrowfield pickups?

    For those of you who have or have tried Narrowfield pickups, in which format do you think they've really excelled? (I'm generally referring to the already-existing "57/08" NF's; although if anybody's gotten their hands on these new 2021 ones, feel free to speak up about them.) I've been lucky...

    My PRS addiction is complete :)

    Haven't been visiting this forum in a while - got me 3 PRS guitars (one is not pictured, an S2 22 that I've put a Lindy Fralin set into, my workhorse) in the past 6 months and I feel my addiction is finally sated. So, if I get a band/project/session that brings some more coin to the table...
