    **Edit to my original post - I think my word choice previously confused some, offended others, and made people think I was trolling - none of which were my intent. I’m editing this original post to try to get back to the heart of what I wanted**

    I recently had a post about getting my first PRS. I think the guitar (a mind 90s CE 22)is amazing - in sound, playability, and it is beautiful. I got the guitar in a trade and when I picked it up it just screams quality.

    For a number of years, I stayed away when I think of a PRS because all I thought of when I saw them was 90’s/early 2000s nu-metal or Nickleback/Creed - which just aren’t my thing.

    Now that I’ve played a PRS, and I’m amazed by the versatility, I’m curious about seeing/hearing other players using PRS guitars in non-metal/hard rock settings.

    Who are some of your favourite non-metal/ hard rock PRS artists? Feel free to share pics, video clips of your favourite performers/performances, etc!

    Hey now, I'm sorta cool. I'd post a pic of myself, but I'm an old fat guy that likes Hawaiian shirts and plays blues. Maybe you should send me your uncool PRS so I can sweat on it while I play Mary Had a Little Lamb, Riveria Paradise and Red House. :p:D

    All I will say is that if someone doesn't look cool holding a PRS, it certainly isn't the guitar's fault.

    I'm not sure it gets much cooler than Tim Mahoney with a PRS.

    Musicians that discover PRS tend to leave “trying to look cool” at high school.

    True, but I figured if I get enough replies, I’ll probably see at least a couple that I agree with!
