    Hi everyone,
    I use to lurk around the Birds and Moons forum yonks (a long time) ago. I seem to remember it was closing down at the time. Anyway the forum popped back into my head today and I thought I’d have a look and I ended up here. So I thought I’d sign up.

    I’m from Glasgow area in Scotland. I bought a 513BRW back in 2005 (I think) and it has been with me ever since. As soon as I played it, I knew I had to have it. It has a beautiful natural coloured one piece top. I instantly became a PRS fan. Unfortunately I have only been able to afford one

    I had the great pleasure of meeting PRSH at an evening with Paul in an old converted church in Glasgow a few years ago where he kindly signed the back plate of my 513.

    The night was awesome because I got to meet Paul, have a laugh and saw Mike Ault (sorry for the spelling if I got that wrong) perform an amazing rendition of Little Wing.

    Anyway, that’s me.... hello hope you all don’t mind me lurking around and enjoying the conversations and looking at all the guitars and fuelling my G.A.S.

    Thanks for reading.

    Dweezel (but you can all call me Iain if you like).

    Thank you Ryan Murphy. If I’m not playing my guitars, chances are I’m looking at them..... or someone else’s.:D

    I’ll endeavour to get a snap of my baby this weekend.

    Thank you Black Plaid for the welcome and the positive guitar wishes.

    I recently went to a PRS event at my local guitar shop where I desperately coveted this guy...

    It’s kinda unbelievable isn’t it! It made me feel all mushy inside.

    I offered to swap my wife for it, but they said they were not keen for that swap having seen her reaction to the offer.

    I wasn’t happy with her for the rest of the day since she didn’t put her best self forward during the negotiations.

    To be honest, I was smitten with all three. The middle one just had the edge for me though. It was a pleasure to see them all.

    Hello there!

    Brand new guy here. Recently purchased my first PRS (finally!) and figured I better get involved in the forums.

    I've been wanting one of these guitars for years, but the US built instruments have always been out of my financial reach. The SE series was seemingly the only option but I've never really liked the look of any of them as such... Until now.

    The latest limited edition SE Custom 24 with a torrefied (roasted/baked) maple neck and quilted veneer top started popping up online which caught my eye immediately. In particular, the combination of whale blue & caramel-hued maple just looked amazing.

    As I finished paying for my amp last month, I had the perfect excuse to buy something else! This is as close to my 'dream' PRS as I can get for reasonable money so I had to pull the trigger.

    Glad to join the fam!
