My name is Chris and I have been playing guitar since 1997. I went to see Rush on the second leg of the Test For Echo tour and saw Alex Lifeson for the first time and was incredibly inspired to start playing at that point. At that point Alex was playing a lot of PRS's and that started my obsession even before I knew how to play (also I was only 13). So in 2007 I finally had the money to put into a PRS. I found a gently used 2002 McCarty in McCarty burst that I simply fell in love with. I have had it ever since, and actually just purchased a Custom 24 Artist Package in Faded Whale Blue that is an absolutely amazing instrument. I will be heading to Experience 2015 this weekend, and I may be adding another to the collection. (if my wife allows). Glad to be a member of the forum, and I appreciate all the great information available here.
