    Ordered from Brian Meader in July of 2008 as soon as it was announced at NAMM - the mighty David Grissom Trem in goldtop. This has been my number one ever since it arrived 11 months later.

    It's had lots of cool adventures - to include being a test platform for PRS R&D, one of the early PTC visitors, and a couple pickup variations.

    It's signed by Paul, David, and Len Johnson.

    The next step in its adventure is to have a re-fret.

    I have probably posted it on Instagram, Facebook, The Gear Page, and here 87 million times. Play around on the Couch Guitar Straps page - it's being used a guitar strap model.

    I love this guitar.

    Here I was thinking mine was a 2008 - turns out it's an '09. So I got it at the third Experience, and I do believe it was my first Experience guitar purchase. Might as well start big!

    A DGT is impossible to beat and that's a hot one with a great story.
