• The PRS Forum will be shut down for a large portion of the day on Wednseday Feb 28th while we perform some maintenance.

Introduce yourself!

Greetings fellow Guitar enthusiasts. I have been a member here for about two years, and have read a lot of the posts, but I haven't contributed before. I am interested in learning by asking questions.

I only own 2 PRS guitars, but I love and play them both a lot.

My first PRS was/is a 2002 Standard 24 in Platinum Silver. It is modded with 57/08s and an adjustable nut. She has been played a lot and has been naturally aged into a player's grade work horse.

The second one I bought more recently is a Johnny Hiland signature model. Two very different guitars that both great in their own right, imho. I am not even close to being a Country style player, but this guitar works for me anyway. Great sustain and tone gained up.

See pic below.

Cheers.
Welcome to the posters club RossF! Both killer guitars IMO, I love the bird on 12th fret for the Hiland. Are they all like that (dots with bird at 12th fret only)? Your workhorse 24 looks great in platinum!!
 
What a great pair of killers!
Great to have another “not using for their intended purpose“ PRS guy around here.;):)
Don’t forget to stick a pic into your avatar…
Thank you for the welcome. I am happy to be in the "not using for their intended purpose club".
Greetings.
Nice guitars.
Thanks and greetings.

Thank you. As for the inlays I am not really sure. To be honest I had never heard of Johnny Hiland or his sig model until I ran across this one.
Congratulations Ross, two is the perfect number of PRS.

Welcome on board.
Thank you. My Standard was lonely for one of its own kind.

To all: Thanks for the nice set of compliments. My guitars appreciate the appreciation. :)
 
It's only polite to introduce ones self

And so I will.
I'll leave the name and job stuff for the sig.
I bought my first PRS used in 1988 or so, a Std24. I had heard of these, and got lucky enough to find one. Wish I still had it, but I sold it to buy a Super 400...
I play Klein guitars a lot. I have three. I know Lorenzo German pretty well. (Please, if you're one of his former customers, don't ask me to help you get your guitar that you ordered way back there, I have one on order too.). I try to keep my GAS disease under control, but guitars are tax write offs for me, so it's pretty easy to justify them.
After years of looking at them again, I bought a Hollowbody Spruce from Brian Meader when he was still at Washington Music Center near DC, three years ago. Then I bought a Studio from him last year. I love that too. It sounds different, and I like that. I want a P22.
I play jazz. Not much rock and roll. But I do like to get a variety of sounds from a guitar, and these do it.
I really admire PRSh's drive to make a really good instrument. I've never met him, but I'd like to. He seems to be just a bit obsessed about making things as good as he can, and I really like that.
My job is in the Maritime provinces of Canada, and there's not much available. I'd like to try one of the new amps, but there aren't any near me there.
Guitars are more fun than just about anything else.
I'm in.
Welcome to the forum!
