Welcome to the forum
TYVM :)

Nice

at ease soldier.
Good to have you in the squad.
Yes sir Sir! Honor to be here!
 
Hi all. New guy here. My name is Doug A (hence the name).

If I had an entire intro thread, the title would probably be "I was going to get a Stratocaster...". I ended up with a Silver Sky SE and so far (three hours in), I'm good with it.

I've been playing since I was a teenager, mostly as a hobby. I was in a few cover bands when I was younger, and I've done some solo acoustic gigs.

Now I'm retired, and I'm trying to build up the skills I didn't have when I was younger. I have ambitions to find an unambitious garage band and make loads of noise with them. If I can find one that doesn't want to go out and "make it big."

I've never been a PRS fan, but the Silver Sky SE convinced me to get one. It fills the quack void in my guitar collection -- my other guitars have either P90s or humbuckers.

Nice to be here, and I hope I can contribute something.

Welcome Doug! The PRS world is a slippery slope, so be prepared for more ;~)) Hope you are able to find some mates to jam with!!!

Welcome Doug!
We’d all love to see some pics when you get a chance.
And, as always, putting one of those pics into your avatar would be cool.;):)

Good to have you aboard.
Just a thought. You might want to consider playing at a church. Many have great bands. The music is usually pretty easy to learn. And the electric guitar usually has the most interesting share of the music. (I didn’t say most important, because it’s mostly about the words) I’ve been playing live in church for decades. I’m pushing hard on 70. Anyway, you might want to consider it.

I definitely will take pictures when I have a chance. The guitar is just the stock Silver Sky SE in Moon White. I'm going to be getting locking tuners for it, and I'm trying to decide between the regular Silver Sky tuners and the vintage tuners. Same price and functionality, it just depends how I want things to look -- and honestly, when I'm playing the guitar, I'm not thinking about how it looks.

Welcome abord Doug!

Being retired we are rewarded with more guitar time, though in my case it also resulted in less money for guitar time LOL!

Those Silver Sky's are beauties! Was able to play a few last week at GC when searching for strings... good thing all I had money for was strings, or I'd be hearing it from my wife for buying another guitar :D

Looking forward to the photos. What amp are you playing it though? Pedal board? We geek out on that stuff too ;)

Ah, man. I'll have to take a lot of pictures, but...

The amp is a Quilter Mach 2. I don't think they make them anymore. Sometimes I play through a Quilter Superblock US, because that's much simpler.

Pedalboard? Work in progress. I have a bunch of pedals, but I haven't decided which of them are going on the pedalboard. So far the order is tuner, clean boost, "transparent" overdrive, distortion (blues driver type, sort of)...oh, you might want brands and types. Yeah, so...

TC Electronics Polytune, Xotic Super Clean boost, Wampler Tumnus overdrive, Wampler Sovereign distortion, Keely Aurora reverb, Keeley Mag Echo delay, Oceans 11 delay (but it does some weird stuff), JHS 3 Series Chorus, and...I think that's it.

The pedals I'd like to add but don't have (yet?) are the Dunlop Hendrix Shrine fuzz, a wah-wah, and a Jam Pedals Retro Vibe univibe. Can you tell who my guitar idol is? :)

Welcome Doug! congratulations on your choice + we have the same idol, I think!

I imagine that Fuzz and Hendrix actually give a good idea and Stratocaster too! but as my friends said, the slope is slippery! If Paul's guitars had been produced in the 1960s and 70s, history would have been written differently! I like thinking!
 
In your opinion, which guitar is best then?

The best guitar is the one that makes you want to play music!?

The 60s and 70s were the golden age of guitars and cool bands! , we cannot dissociate Gibson and Jimi Page, Jimi Hendrix and Fender, so if pure speculation, Jimi Hendrix having played with a PRS would it have had an impact in history? It's not about which guitar is better!

For me the best guitar is the next PRS which will be in my basket!

I get that. I'm trying to fill holes in my collection. I filled the Strat hole with the Silver Sky SE, and I think I can fill the Les Paul hole with another PRS SE. Probably the McCarty...I don't know.
 
Hello everyone.. So after 30+ years I've finally taken the PRS plunge!

I worked with a friend of Pauls back in the late 80's and 90's and Pauls guitars was all he ever talked about, he would bring examples in to work and yes they were stunning but the thought of spending 1k on a no name guitar was just crazy talk to me at the time :).

Fast forward 30 years and I'm at my local guitar shop looking for a hard tail Humbucker equipped ax when I stumbled on a new SE McCarty, it played and sounded just fantastic so I jumped on it!

It only took one little sip of the cool-aid for me to now be hopelessly hooked.. I've purchased 4 new PRS's this year (SE McCarty, SE DGT, Limited run CE and the SE SAS) have a few more on my wish list as well.

Really looking forward to getting to know everyone here on the Forum.
