    I have been playing guitar/s for over 40 years now... I have enjoyed playing different models of Gibson, Fender, Rickenbacker etc etc etc.... Earlier this year I traded a Gibson Junior for a PRS Vela.... and no matter how I try.. I keep picking the Vela up... its so comfortable..easy to play...huge range of tones...no tuning issues...wonderful finish... all of my other guitars are gathering dust !!! I pick up my Strat... 10 minutes later I'm playing the Vela... same with my Gibsons.... Damn you PRS... Well... to be honest.. I'm cross with myself.. why did I wait so late to try one !!! You lucky buggers were ahead of me.... Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy :)

    Keeping on keeping on... Yours from not so sunny England... Wailing

    Absolutely...YES...Meeee Tooooooo!!! But I traded my other brands years ago...
    Unfortunately, As you play other PRS instruments, you're gonna find more the same.
    See if you can find a second hand older Swamp Ash Special...That would go great with the Vela!!!

    Enjoy!!!

    Well, I don't know you personally, so I don't know just how annoying you are. :p (Just kidding - English is such a funny language if you're not careful.)

    Seriously though, my "other" guitars (e.g. Jazzmasters) are so different from my PRS guitars - in tone and feel - that I find it quite refreshing to pick one of them up after playing a PRS.

    Don't feel bad, you aren't the only one. I'm frikkin' FROM MD and avoided PRS forever, I just had my mind programmed that there was no way a guitar is worth over $xxxx.xx

    Man was I wrong. Great thing is I fixed my issue :D

    Yes, and I wish I could find more annoyances like this in my life. Of course, once you have more than one, the dilemma becomes which one? A first world problem I can survive, though.

    Amen.

    It’s not like I just declared all other guitars trash without owning them first. :D:oops::(

    I do find most of my PRS gittars annoying more & more... except for my Vela's. The Vela ergonomics are just about perfect.

    I'm so far down the hole there's no hope of crawling out. Not that I'd want to!

    I have a Gibson LP studio, a US Finder Strat, an Ibinez RG Premium, and a CE24 semi hollow. I think I have played the Gibson for about a hour, and have not touched the other 2 since I got the PRS 7 months ago. Now I want a Silver Sky (will sell the Strat and maybe the Ibinez), and a PRS with soapbars. Then I can be happy.

    In my opinion I'd say yes. I've been selling off my core models and SE's.... I've got 3 Vela's and an S2 standard 22 that make me happy. Plus a few other brand guitars that I prefer to play.
    But that's just me....

    Hah! As that wise Chicago sage has stated, they’re like potato chips. Screw the diet!
