Welcome, and thanks for your service to the community! Retired LEO here, and also a longtime PRS player. Great folks on this forum, so make yourself comfortable and enjoy that new guitar!Hi Everyone and Thank You for allowing me to be a part of this forum. I have been retired from the fire service for a few years due to a water rescue accident that we became the rescued after our boat slammed a tree and flipped over in swift water which messed my neck and back up leaving me with neuropathy in neck and hands. I'm 66 years old now and have decided to learn guitar and had better hurry up as the years are running out. I've been practicing on a older guitar and figured I'd treat myself to a PRS. It will be here tomorrow, can't wait. Thanks again.
Welcome Ivancy!Hi all, I'm new here posting, been reading for a while.
I'm a 47 years old guy from Spain.
Between other guitars, I own a PRS McCarty 2005 20th Anniversary with bridge pickup swapped to a \m/ one, the one in my avatar.
I play in a rock band for over 25 years and I enjoy playing and listening to anything from Blues to Metalcore.
Ok. Since you asked…Welcome to the PRS Forum!
New members...old members: Who are you? Where are you from? How did you end up on a PRS Forum? How did PRS get on your radar?
Yes. The tour is fantastic.My name is Dino and I just joined the forum.
I am the proud owner of a 1986 Custom 24.
My dad bought the guitar new from Washington Music Center.
The guitar is unique in that it has a one piece top and a tone control in place of the "sweet switch".
The story goes, it was a "special order" for a customer who had cancelled the order.
I'm not sure if that's true or not. It may possibly be an "employee guitar". I don't know.
My dad had cancer and passed away 5 years ago, but he gave this guitar to me a couple years before he passed because he said he wanted to be around to see me enjoy it. I've since bought several PRS guitars, but this one not only has that early PRS "mojo", plays and sounds incredible ... but it's very special to me just because it was my dads. My dad and I also took a tour of the PRS factory when they were still in Annapolis. What an AWESOME experience!
Anyway ... I was a member of "Birds and Moons" many years ago, but I guess that site is long gone now.
I look forward to meeting new people here and maybe learning more about PRS!
