    Hi! First time poster, long-time member at TGP with the same handle.

    I recently sold my recording studio, and decided to use some of those funds to explore some dream guitars I never had a chance to own.

    I can’t keep all these guitars long term (right?), but for now, I have fallen deep into a PRS rabbit hole, and don’t want to get out!

    I can now see why people have been so passionate about these guitars. Paul is an amazing guy and his passion for quality really comes through the whole company and product line.

    I’m currently a very happy owner of a Silver Sky, a Custom 24, and a couple of McCartys.

    Hello to the forum!

    This is the 24. Stunning wood they used on this one. Looks more zebra in photos than in real life.

    And this is the one that started it all... I was going to get a Lemon Burst LP but picked this up in the shop and never put it down. I was hooked. Now I have a Silver Sky en route too.

    Maybe should have introduced myself before posting a thread previous to this about my tone pot... I currently own and have since I was 16 a '93 PRS
    CE 24. It is my only electric at the time.

    I had a lot of gear stolen in Raleigh,NC that was never recovered. Luckily, I did have my PRS with me.

    Lost all my production gear & my personal guitar rig and effects units. Mics, cables, Computer DAW, ADAT pre-amp, so on and so forth.

    For a while after, I was running my PRS into a M-Audio Black Box then out to a tape adapter into a commercial stereo tape deck as an amp.
    A huge step down from what was my favorite amp that I've ever owned; A Fender Deluxe Reverb II.

    After struggling to find any work (as a guitarist or in the studio), I went back to school for music performance. I only got an associates of fine-arts, music performance degree but, I learned SO much and have a much better grasp on reading & where any given note on the staff lays on the fret-board.

    I was pushed more in a jazz direction during school. Never got "Giant Steps" at tempo but I do know to play and solo over it.
    How did I find out about Paul Reed Smith guitars? The other guitarist in my first band had just bought a Custom 22 and I played it and loved it.
    The neck was a little thicker than I preferred but, It sounded and played great.

    When I saw an ad for a used '93 CE 24 in a local head-shop, I called inquiring about. The guy was a huge Rush fan and for whatever reason, preferred to play a Gibson SG. So, I bought it from him when I was 16. I've had various other guitars, but my '93 CE 24 has always been my baby. My go to.

    When I'm able to save a little more money, I'll probably purchase an SE 24 as a backup.

    When I went back to school I had a few achievements. I arranged Dave Brubeck Quartet - "Blue Rondo a la Turk" for 4 part guitar. We did play that one in concert. I also arranged for small orchestra with some help from the director of the orchestra. I arranged two original pieces that were never played during concert. I did however transcribe and arrange Micheal Jackson - "Don't Stop 'Till You Get Enough" and it was played in concert.

    I became the unofficial copyist for the orchestra's director because I learned Sibelius very quickly and well.

    I met the other guitarist in my band, Jon, in school during guitar ensemble. I made a Zappa joke about another guy in the ensemble and we began talking and playing together.

    Hmmm... I've always been a bit of a theory nerd since I took it back in High School.

    Anyone want to explain my fascination with this chord progression? Please feel free to elaborate.

    ||: Db-7 / / / | % | Cmaj7(#11) / / / | % | Bb-7(b5) / / / | % | A7(#11) / / / | Ab7(b13) / / Ab7 :||


    Ne way. Not gonna plug my band or soundcloud,ect.

    Keep It Greazy,
    PLS

    Hey XC106, welcome to the forum!! My recommendation (and I am low man who is not even on the totem pole) would be either a used Hollowbody or a used CU24. Everything is awesome from this company, but those are the two that I have had my hands on the most, so it is what I am going to recommend. A lot depends on what style you are looking to play, what other guitars you like the sound of, etc. I am sure you will get plenty of responses here! When you do get something, be sure to post pix!!! We love the six string pix here!!!

    Happy pickin'
