    Experience used to be in the fall. Social media reminded me that 10 years ago a chat with the PRS wood buyer caused me to do something out of left field. I had gone to Experience to visit friends, listen in on some sessions I found interesting and talk to the Private Stock folks about a rosewood guitar.

    It is a fun guitar with a fairly unique voice.

    This is probably my favorite PRS fretboard ever. Everything on it is glorious.
