    I think it would be 88 or 89 for me.

    I played one for the first time in 1990 while working in Dallas. I kept playing them in music stores around the country until I bought one in 1996. It is beside me now, ready to play again.

    I'm a relative newcomer. I bought my 2013 P22 new in December 2014. I've added 3 more core PRS and sold quite a few guitars of other makes since. I just wish they offered a piezo option on every model!

    03 cu24. Wish I still had it. Played it for 13 years and then traded it.

    Picked up the 2008 SC245 in my avatar a couple months ago. I love it. I would like another PRS very soon.

    I lusted after them for quite a while. I had one of the early SE Custom's for a bit in 2008 and sold it off as I went through a different maker phase.

    I found my blue CU24 in a local pawnshop and never thought my wife would go for it at the time (5 years ago), but she did! Ever since then I've been completely hooked! I've had 2 that I bought and sold (really miss my old Standard 24), but I have some good ones in the bunch now for sure. Such incredible guitars.

    Bought my first in Dec '98 after wanting one for a few years. I go through phases where I play other brands more, but there has been at least one PRS in my rotation for 20+ years.

    Hi, I’m Les and I’ve been a PRS addict since 1991.

    I’ve never gotten clean. ;)

    In January of 1998 I finally received the 97 CE24 I had ordered quite a few months back.
    Vintage cherry, one piece mahogany body.
    God I still love that guitar.
    Lately the WT neck feels a bit thin sometimes, but overall this guitar still feels like home. Just feels right
