    Welcome, Garrett. Great photo of your newborn(s). Something about how you phrased the quoted bit above just cracked me up. The term "double entendre" just doesn't quite do it justice.

    Welcome, Mike. In exactly the same boat - well, I've got 9-10 more years on you, but yeah, just starting out and ... well, already have a wicked bad case of PRS Mesmerism Syndrome. Beware this place! :)

I can tell you quality guitars enable me to play shittily better. My current favorites are a modded Mira & the Waring CE Floyd. Looking forward to learning from you all.

    I just received my first PRS. I went conservative and picked up a used SE Standard. It needs a little tweaking. I can't believe how light it is. Very comfortable.

    Welcome xstonr. Hopefully, you'll last longer than I have before you start going ... well, er, but, umm and the "it couldn't hurt to just look" and going sort of glazey-eyed wandering about these forums. :D

    I've been trying to chase this hobby for the better part of a decade, if not more. I'm 45.

    PRS got on my radar when Mark Tremonti started playing them. That dude really knows how to pump out really great riffs. When his first signature se's came out. They just weren't close enough to the USA's for me. So I bought guitar after guitar that was "close" but none of them had the same sound, the same neck, the same mojo. These new one's are pretty damn close now. So I pulled the trigger.

    I have probably tried to learn this instrument 6 times and something always got in the way and I always compromised. But not this time. Finally going to take proper lessons (found a local teacher I think I'll vibe with pretty well). I bought a great amp to play in my apartment and can grow with me as a hobbyist (Boss Katana Artist).

    I'm stoked. I'm super stoked right now.

    I'm a late starting (49 years young) beginning guitarist whose been taking acoustic lessons. I decided to add an electric and just received an '18 SE 245 Whale Blue. Unfortunately, I can't do much but make noise with it right now . . . but after a few months of practice . . . who knows!

    -Mike[/QUOTE]

    48 years young here and on the same path! Started with an acoustic and picked up the exact same SE 245 back in March! I hope you're having as much fun as I am! Good Luck and welcome to the forum!

    Also 48 years old and checking in...been playing since 1983. From a cheap starter acoustic, to a red Strat knock-off, to a white Japanese Strat modded with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge pickup, to an all black Ibanez RG 440 back in the day (late 80's-mid 90's). Gigged on that for years during college, but sold it to buy an engagement ring. Played on a borrowed Yahama acoustic while I didn't officially own a guitar, and then my wife bought me an Ovation Elite Standard (mid 90's-late 00's), which I still have. Moved from there to a Taylor 814ce Grand Auditorium about 10 years ago. Absolutely love that thing.

    Getting back to the electric and just ordered a 2019 CE 24 in Gray Black Smokeburst. Went back and forth for months trying to decide between a Fender Elite HSS and the PRS CE 24. Ultimately, the PRS just felt better in my hands. Will be pairing it up with Line 6 Helix. A few weeks out on delivery....ugh.
