    Half the time I upload mine to an album on Facebook (Viewable by me only, usually).

    They seem to last a good while. Otherwise you have to find a freebie pic host and upload them and
    copy the link to use in the "Image" tool here.

    Hi PRS peeps. I'm Jim and my first PRS just shipped from Sweetwater after a two month wait for this model. It's an S2 Studio in antique white. I've been playing guitar and bass since the Nixon administration. LOL I'm getting "long of tooth" but over the last four years with the help of on-line teaching sites like Jam Play, Guitar Tricks, True Fire and You Tube, my playing has progressed immensely. I got a free promo subscription to Jam Play when I bought an Epiphone ES 339 four years ago and bought into subscriptions to the three on-line lesson sites to check them out. I settled on True Fire as my sorta permanent source. I'm so excited for the delivery of my S2. It looks so classy and I checked out an S2 standard at Guitar Center last week to make sure I'll be good with the "pattern regular" neck.

    I'm looking forward also to this forum and getting to share with you nice folks. Cheers.

    Hey Jim welcome to the forum. Congrats on the first of most likely many PRSi. Jump right in, keep arms and legs inside at all times and hang on. Naa, only a couple of them bite, but I'm sort of sure they have had their shots.

    Seriously, lots of good folks up in here. Some of the coolest enablers you'll ever meet.

    Oh and pics...we love pics a.k.a. guitar porn...so the more the better

    Hello! My name is Rob, 31 out of CT. I’ve been playing for 15 years but mostly to the audience of my dog and the odd open mic night. I’m a lefty but play right-handed, causes some fun issues with picking occasionally.

    Short list of guitars:
    • Martin DXM laminate dreadnought
    • Taylor GS Mini mahogany
    • Frankensquier I built from a wrecked Strat body and Warmoth parts, Duncan Hot Rail bridge, Duncan Vintage neck, JB Junior middle
    • Epi Firebird studio w/full-size hums and Steinberger tearless tuners. Swapped pickups for a BurstBucker 2 in the neck and BurstBucker 3 in the bridge, Gibson pots and switch, copper shielding in the cavities, chrome pickup rings and knobs
    • 2008 CE-22 I bought used in 2011 (long story with how I ended up with it), had the original Dragon IIs in the case with all paperwork, case keys, and swing tag. Previous owner had swapped a set of Wolfetone Marshallheads into it with nickel caps and I love the thing. The only modification I’ve made is a set of Schaller strap locks.
    I run them through a first-run Blackstar Club 40 1x12 combo with Blackstar 1x12 extension, both with Eminence RedFang cones.

    I have a bad habit of fiddling with my gear, but my PRS is the only one I’ve left alone since I’ve bought it. I’ve debated swapping the Dragons back into it but I love the Marshallheads too much. Looking forward to seeing what kinds of information or tips I can glean from here, and I love talking gear with people so it seems like I found the right place!

    Hello

    My name is Alexis, I am 52 years old and play guitar since I am 6, so quite a moment. I am originally from Switzerland but living in southern France for 10 years now.

    My first ''real'' guitar was a 1976 Bi-Centennial Firebird which I got from my parents in 1978 for having achieved my scholar diploma. I started collecting guitars during the eighties and early ninetees with about every cent I was able to economise as teen and in 1994 a dream became true when I was able to purchase my beautiful PRS Custom 24 10-Top at a reduced price due to a tiny bad spot in the finish. One year later I lost most of my collection due to a fire, and the remaining two i sold in the net couple of years because I rarely got them out of the cases since I owned the PRS.

    I used a Peavey Roadmaster 160W all-tube amp head since 1982 with a 1970 Laney Supergroup Lead 4x12 cab, equipped with Goodman Speakers. Lucky as I am the amp head had been stolen 2014 and I replaced it with a Bugera 333 XL Infinium head, as the Peaveys are almost impossible to find (and I admit 160W tube power without master volume is quite monstrous). I am very satisfied with the Bugera, especially for the little investment it took - really worth every cent. I don't use many effects, a Mesa Boogie V-Twin (slightly modified) gives me 12 base sounds with the 3-channel amp, a vintage Cry Baby and Heil Talkbox, and an alos vintage Alesis Midiverb II.

    Happy to be amongst you!

    Hello! I'm Colt.

    I am fairly new to the PRS fold, but I have already acquired 3 S2's and an SE

    I've grown up always wanting to be great at guitar, but haven't quite gotten there yet! I am into some fairly heavy music, which is what I like to play, but I enjoy pretty much anything. I'm pretty straight forward, so feel free to ask me any questions!

    I look forward to gaining some knowledge on this forum!

    Thanks

    Welcome Colt.
    Keep playing and you’ll get better. We all want to be great, some of us end up settling for ok. It’s fun either way.
