Real nice clip. The older I get the chimier I like it and yet there is sufficient warmth and sustain too! The high E seems a little low but the other registers are great. Could be mic placement or EQ..... ?.
Could be placement, as I doubt I EQ'd the guitar. More likely just that I was noodling around and didn't get a good pick attack on the E. The guitar was so new that day that I was basically just stumbling around on it to show off the tone of the thing. The neck on mine is wider than I was used to and took me a couple of days to become comfortable -- I was flubbing quite a few notes!
I should probably record something new soon!
I've been fussing around with the Dutch Broadcasting "NOS" stereo technique, and I find it's a great way to record this particular instrument. If you have a pair of KM184s, you'll get an absolutely stellar recording using it. However, the recording I linked was mono, recorded with either a Neumann TLM103 or a TLM102, I am no longer sure which mic I used.
It's funny about those J200s you mention in your post. They either sound absolutely great, or absolutely dead, and there doesn't seem to be much middle ground, does there? I have a friend with a great sounding one, and his guitar made me interested in both the maple one I have, and an earlier maple jumbo Collings I had. The Collings was a beautiful sounding guitar, but as good as it was, the PRS has more power and sustain, and a little more detailed tone on the high end, a little less stiff.
As a side note, I use a Bluegrass set of strings with medium bottoms and light tops, maybe that imbalance is what you're hearing?
Thanks for the kind words, though!
