    Hi.

    I'm Jeremy, I live in France, I'm 48.
    I used to buy and sell many electric guitars but also acoutics (Martin, MJ Franks..), I own a PRS SE, a Fender strat us deluxe.
    I really had a revelation in 1994, when I played for the first time a PRS custom 24 : wow, what a guitar...
    I was a student at this time, ans wasn't able to afford such a guitar.
    Later, I had the money, but I prefered a luthier's guitar, instead buying a PRS...

    About 5 years ago, I had the opportunity to buy a used PRS SE. Maybe a 2007 model, with a flat top.*
    It feels and sounds good. But I miss the carved top, and all the emotion opf a US model.
    So i'm planning to buy soon a PRS US. Core or CE, I'm not yet decided.
    It will be a used one.
    Let's start the hunt !

    Hey!

    My name is Jacques, I'm currently a student at Georgia Tech! I've been playing guitar for about 11 years I first got into PRS guitars when I played one at my local guitar shop a couple of years ago.

    I couldn't afford it unfortunately but that didn't hinder my enthusiasm! despite having 2 jobs and picking up odd jobs and whatnot, I still can afford one. So what I do almost every day after class is head to the local guitar shop and play the same SE custom (I still do to this day).

    Anyways, I just wanted to share my love and enthusiasm for PRS and the equipment they make!

    Message me anytime to discuss Music or PRS or whatever!

    Welcome Jacques!

    That's a great looking guitar in your profile pic, maybe put up a thread with a full set of pictures of it for us!

    Ah, misread your post! My first PRS took me years to get. Made a lot of sacrifices for almost a year after I finally had a steady job (being in the military, no less) and got one that I've had for 29 years now.

    Good luck, I'm sure you grab a great one some day!

    Hey! I'm Mike. Just picked up an Archon 100 and Stealth 4x12. Insane rig. I'd like to get into PRS guitars too. The body shape, headstock, fit & finish is great, but they need to get modern. Not everyone want's a trem and short scale lengths. Maybe someday I'll buy a PRS guitar when they come around.;)

    UH no. I seriously want a charcoal flame maple custom 24 w/ Evertune bridge, a 25.5' scale, a 12" radius, stainless steel frets, ebony board and active pickups (which I would be fine with swapping) to play through this wicked rig. I bought a PRS Archon and cab and this was where I could say what's up to the forum. Why would I be joking?

    hey, i get you now — saw your other thread. you are not the first to ask for these features, for sure — i know at least two of us here are waiting for a fan fret headless, but that’s probably two hundred sales vs twenty thousand for another 594 variant.

    there’s always carvin, right?

    Totally. I have owned 2 Carvin CT6s, 1 C66 and a Kiesel CS624. Good guitars . While I haven't owned either... the PRS Custom 24 and Mayones Regius were in my hands just on another level completely. Mayones will pretty much make you what you want and their core line is very accommodating to every taste. PRS seems to be still focusing on the suits who have boutique gear in their office they never play. lol that actually was a joke, but you know what I mean. I see boutique making a comeback both in gitaars and amps and it seems like younger people are buying aw well. Gotta give the people what they want! Harley Davidson is right down the street from me...... perfect example. Wait too long and everything can come undone. A headless fan fret PRS would be sick BTW.

    First Post... Decide to join the forums today. My current toys are a DGT, Silver Sky, CE24, Paul's SE and a Dave Navarro SE. Today I purchased a Special 22 Semi-Hollowbody. Should be here in a few days. Met Paul at a guitar show last year. He signed my Silver Sky and DGT electronics plate. So.... huge PRS fan. Will plan to post some pictures soon.
