    I really need to convince somebody to buy a PRS but... I need them to think it's their idea.

    My dude is playing an Ibanez Artcore hollowbody with a faux Bigsby. It's a nice enough guitar (I guess) but dude is tuning and retuning between every [email protected] song, and to make matters worse he's the frontman. Ol' boy should be talking to the crowd or sippin' on some water instead of tuning.

    Dude loves my spruce top HB along with the rest of my guitars but... How do I convince him into a Semi Hollow CU22 trem?

    I need ideas.

    He’ll be open to suggestions if his Artcore goes permanently missing.

    You need to make sure there's a "mechanical problem" with his Artcore right before hand. Give him your back up to play? Or, just start texting him random Reverb links. Seems to work!

    Speaking of random Reverb links, there's another CHEAP HG-70 listed. You should check it out.

    Get a video of the gig and show him how **** it looks on stage to be mucking about tuning between songs. Then yes, loan him a guitar for a gig. Have the other band members comment on the continuous tuning/distraction
    ... Sabotage a string in his guitar so it breaks first song of the set.

    And you SHOULD snag that HG. If I got it I'd need a cab to go with it...and I'm saving for bigger things. So I'm counting on you to remove the temptation!

    Sample a creaky barn door and trigger it every time he touches the bar. There must be a way to do that!

    Simple. Have a beautiful woman tell him how she always goes for PRS players, and there was this guy who had this semi hollow one, etc. etc.

    Have her come to more than one show. After he buys the guitar, she doesn’t need to show up.

    He’ll say it was his idea. But you’ll know.

    How about not letting him have time to tune between songs? Get the rest of the band to just start the next song, and eventually he will realize he needs to find a guitar that doesn't need constant tuning to keep up.
