    Hello folks, brand new here. A 47 yrs old semi-pro who bought his 1st PRS in '91...lost it... bought another '91 bout 7 yrs ago...lost it...lookin to get another pre-factory...worked for a dealer...had a great rep...interacted with one of their amp designers for the HG-70 a few time and a pickup builder a time or two. Because of my absolute reverence for the instrument, I thought I new most of what there was to know about the pre-fac stuff...but I've seen some things labled "late 80's" that I dont recognize...and with the Chinese Guitar prob we all know about...combined with the fact that one of my 91's was stolen and I'd give anything to be able to identify it {since the rep and I designed it and it is a lil factory altered Custom} and maybe once hold her again. I played it at every gig, soundcheck and recording for 18 yrs. Anywho...lookin for advice , knowledge and insight about the best guitar ever conceived! Thanks

    Hello, joining the forum while waiting for my '15 Santana to arrive on Friday... SAM4FTHAI6T_SY_NQ-QN
    Been wanting a PRS forever. Love the arched body and flame maple.

    Great information here that's helped a lot!

    It was a tough choice between
    - 2001 mint Santana 2
    - 2008 mint Santana 2 one-off, great flame and colors, but no Papers
    - 2015 new Santana Signature 10-Top
    Despite the artist grade and reasonable pricing on the older models, the grain, inlays, and covered pups drove me to the '15. I figured I'll be playing it, and keeping it, not collecting and selling it.

    Personal 'Modcat':
    Year: 75
    Made in: Germany (Dad from MD)
    Location: Southern CA
    Music Style: Alternative, Metallica, Chili Peppers, Santana, ...
    Other Axes:

    '92 Gibson Les Paul Studio
    '91ish Yamaha Image Deluxe
    '90s Homemade versions of Explorer, Strat, Jackson Kelly, Music Man EVM Semi Holloybody, and a self-designed Double-Neck.
    '90s Martin Acoustic
    '90s Ovation 12-String Acoustic

    Not sure if I can link photos yet but I'll try. I bought PRS Custom 24 2016 Gold Burst Top Finish and I love it. I assume that I need to post more before being able to "upload" photos.[​IMG]

    Actually, you need to load your pics to a photo sharing site like Flickr, Photobucket or Google Pics. Once they are there you can either use the Image button on the tool bar, or copy/paste from the site into your post.

    Greetings. Welp, I finally bit the bullet. Put on my dress up sweat pants & joined the fancy place. Gotta see if I can find my way around here & how much I'll be able to get away with. Thanks for having me. You'll probably be sorry....

    Welcome Munga. No need for the dress up sweats. I've got my dingy sweats on today, and I just dripped some mustard on my pullover! Have fun!

    I'm usually dripping... let's just say "other stuff". You're lucky with mustard. Thanks!

    Thanks HB! I'm usually not too comfortable in fancy places where it's frowned upon if you're not wearing underwear. And pants. I probably gotta watch my mouth here with The Man hangin' out & such. But I had to join to tell these folks that it was a Truly Golden Thing they did for the Man Himself, Sergio. And to offer up my big sh*t eating grin for Sergio & his new, glowing, beautiful guitar. It was a very special thing this place did (I should know, eh?) and I just had to put on some fancy sweats & join. :)
