    I purchased my first PRS, CE24 as well as everything else to get started back into playing.

    I also purchased a Mannmade bridge, what a difference in quality! The OEM is still a good bridge, I wanted a US machined made one.

    Easy to install, makes a difference in setup and tone. Took the opportunity to change to ultra light number 8 set of strings. I really like the double acting truss system of the PRS Guitars, everything just fell into place easily.

    Well.... not exactly a purchase... it was a direct swap.. a modern Les Paul Junior I’ve had for a few years (still have a couple left) for a 2017 Vela... my first venture into the world of PRS guitars.. It’s a fantastic geetar.. feels so comfortable and has a variety of wonderful voices .. it may be the last change to my ‘stable’ of guitars ... This has been an interesting thread to read through.. you folks are a friendly bunch

    The garden refuge sacks purchase will be eclipsed today (I hope!). I've been waiting for this thing for 2 months. With my other gear in place in the studio, I've had nothing suitable to plug into downstairs since lockdown. I thought the time right to get something dedicated for home use. Its due for delivery today, so I am sticking around indoors.

    Tracking link is useless. It just says '...by end of day'.

    This is the Yamaha THR30iiW.

    One of the smaller ones was available from Coda Music in May but I held out for the big one. I don't have the the wireless guitar relay. Maybe later.

    That’s awesome, I love it when forum friends meet in real life. We are going to need to see pics of that amp. Maybe even a picture of the two of you having a beer.

    I bought this plastic strap that lowers the loops of my masks off my ears. Well worth the money!

    Musically, I haven't bought anything, not even strings.

    1977 Starcaster. A pristine, under-the-bed example and even the case appears brand new.

    There was tequila involved.

    I understand this is not everyone's idea of a 'holy grail' guitar, but it's been one of mine for decades, and this one is hands down the nicest I've ever seen. The lockdown had me going through my pile of guitars and selling all the ones I had that were 'cool' but that never got played because the necks were too thin for me. To my surprise, I sold 7 guitars in a matter of a few weeks and ending up with a surprising amount of cash.

    This jewel was already priced low for the condition, and I offered the seller $500 less, figuring no way. They accepted. I panicked. Tequila.

    I figured it had to be a dog of a player and I would need to spend more buck$ to get it in shape, but guitar was actually nicer than they described, has a perfect set up, plays fantastic and sounds like heaven (if you're a fan of the Seth Lover Wide Range pups, which I am).

    I figure I must have burned up a lot of good guitar karma with this one :)

    I spot the locking saddles on that suhr. I bought a set as soon as they came out from Wilkinson and put them on my EJ strat. They're great!

    Other than strings the only music purchase I’ve made during the plandemic is a Fender American Ultra Strat. It’s not a PRS but it is exactly what I was looking for in a Strat. Comfy, flawless fit and finish, stays in tune with a floating trem, and I really like the gen 5 vintage noiseless pickups for those glassy cleans. Eddie’s gave me a price I couldn’t refuse so I didn’t :)
