    Hi there, just put in an order for a Custom 24 artist with rosewood neck. I understand I have a long wait ahead of me before I get my hands on it, mid summer from what I am told, but figured I would get ahead of things and join the forum in the meantime. I've been meaning to get a PRS since I first saw the adds in GP Magazine way back in the late 80s but I somehow never got around to it. What's a couple of months when I've already waited 25+ years? Somehow, I always managed to put it off and now I feel I should have done this years ago! Anyway, I'm pleased to say that mistake has been corrected.

    Hello Everybody!
    This is my first day here.
    Here is my story. Please forgive me if it's too wordy. I'm a naturally chatty dude, and I've just had a big mug o coffee. ;-)
    I was a self-taught gigging bassist way back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Also known as the 1980's and 1990's. So-called (by my ex) grown up life took me away from music in the mid-1990's.
    A couple of years ago, my new bride told me that she always wanted to learn piano, but was discouraged by her parents at a young age. So I bought her a nice little Yamaha keyboard and a lesson plan/package. She loves it. While I was at the music store, the sights, sounds, and grooves began getting back into my blood. Maybe it's been there all along. I just felt like a traveler who had just come home after roaming the world on foot for years.
    When I turned 50 years-old, I decided that it was time to learn something new and different, so I purchased a Gibson SGJ and started working at learning to play six string. Shortly afterwards, I spotted a used MIM Strat for sale cheap. It was a little bit road worn, so I fixed it up. Nice guitar when I need a strat sound, but I am developing a bit of arthritis in my hands, so it's a fight to play that axe for too long.
    Fast forward almost two years.
    I spotted a 2013 PRS SE Santana on sale. It's a beautiful instrument. The price was right, so I took a chance and ordered it. This guitar plays so well, I have hardly touched my Gibby since I've scored this SE.
    I know that it sounds cheesy, but after just one week on this guitar, my playing has progressed a whole lot. The guitar is just so easy to play! I have some CTS electronics for it, and a brass sustain block on the way. I think that it's worthy of a custom bone nut as well. I know it's blasphemy to some, but I am also considering trying out the Gibson '61 Zebra humbuckers from my SG in the SE.
    Looking forward to getting good enough at six string to play in public and not be embarrassed. Hah hah!
    I can see myself replacing the SG with another PRS, maybe an American one, and becoming a PRS man for the rest of my life now.

    Hi Dino, I'm very sorry to read of your loss. Your Father sounds like he was a good man and a great parent.
    That is a GORGEOUS instrument! Play it for life and remember that when you play an instrument with passion, it becomes a part of you. A little bit of your father is now a part of that instrument, so playing it with feeling, brings you closer to his spirit.

    Great story Art.
    Glad you found a guitar you like - PRS might tempt you with more.

    I don't have a prs but I'm saving up for one. I saw one at guitar center and instantly fell in love.
