    Hi All-

    My name is Alex and I have just bought my first PRS (a CU24). I've been playing guitar for the past 15 years but never actually picked up a PRS until the last month or so. Needless to say, I "get it" now... these guitars are some of the best I have ever played (cue "we're not worthy" from Wayne's World). Anyway, looking forward to being part of this community.

    Cheers

    Welcome Alex!

    Congrats of your first(of many) PRSi! Which one is next?

    It's standard here that you must provide pics or you're playing a Hello kitty guitar...:eek:

    Hello Everyone,
    I've come to the forum for several years on and off, always enjoyed it. I've been playing around fifty two years, been on stage and rubbed elbows with some industry greats, and had a good time doing it. I own plenty of guitars other than PRS's, but around 2000 I was in my local music shop (I knew the manager very well) when he brought out a new arrival. When he opened the case it was a Whale Blue 24 Custom with moon inlays. I had to have it!
    In 2016 I was shopping for a new Les Paul burst when I saw photos that Sam Ash posted online. It was a Faded Whale Blue 2015 Santana, still in the back of the store, they hadn't even brought it in the showroom yet. It looked like 3D worn jeans or something. I had to have it. Now I promise you I don't have Gear Acquition Syndrome, ...well, ...that's a lie. But anyway, these PRS guitars are the only guitars I have that when I first saw them I felt such a strong pull from. So, here we are. I'm currently living in South Carolina (since 96), recording my new album, and exploring new possibilities.
    Thanks for having me, and it's good to meet all of you,
    David

    An Introduction that needs no introduction. Nom de plume: VonBach.
    Been playing since Shep was a pup. Sold all my gear and quit for a quarter century. Recently was kick-started back into guitars by my wife who got tired of me wandering aimlessly around the neighborhood in my underwear. She bought me the Tele on eBay. Now she's created a monster. A PRS monster at that....somehow, my boss up and gave me (GAVE ME) a 2011 SE Santana. Now I'm hooked on PRS. But The Zebra is a most terrible creature... a true heart-stealer. Like so many others, I've had LPs and Strats and Teles and SGs, Arias and Carvins and...They're all good axes. PRS is GREAT. Maybe I'm deluding myself and am setting myself up for a heartbreak...I THINK it's LOVE...the Zebra is SO beautiful and responsive...it could just be guitar lust... but I think I've found MY guitar...now, if I can just talk my wife into a Sonzera 20.....

    Welcome to the forum! Just buy it, and ask for forgiveness. Or, do something unusually nice for your wife, and reward yourself with an amp!

    Hi, My name is Mozzi and just got my 2nd PRS - the (2017) 509 in Fire Red to go with my (2016) 594 - also in Fire Red as you can see from my Avatar pic.

    I have been playing guitar on and off for more years than I care to admit to - and some may say I should be 'better' at playing than I am now LOL.

    As far as genres go, I prefer Rock/Metal but mostly before grunge happened. I do like most 'guitar' genres and watch stunned at those percussive guitarists. My guitar heroes are Slash, Vai, Satriani, Petrucci etc so you get an idea of where my musical taste lies.

    I fell in love with PRS when I saw the first one with Birds on the neck back in the 80's and its taken me years to actually own one myself.

    As you can see, I am a fan of the Fire Red Burst...
