    So I've been keeping my eye on these since the launch. Should I? Shouldn't I? So many guitars already. What to do. So now up till this week I decided if one with a very outstanding top that strikes me pops up I'll jump in. Last week 3 came up new at dealers. While I was examining the photos of the first it was sold while I looked. Ok, I said these are almost done and a few remaining ones being finished are trickling into a couple stores. Still looking a day later I spotted "the one". Grabbed it right away. Two days later I have spotted another and boom, gone the next day too. Moral of the story is some runs just take off like crazy and this was one of them so when the gas hits gotta move on it. I guess the US only got 96 of these so probably won't see another in the wild. If so, again, "gone in 60 seconds". And these are Keepers for sure!

    i bought that one.

    I’ve been watching them for a few months as well. Probably won’t see many more pop up at dealers.

    RJK, congrats on that nice one. Great top for the run. I almost pulled the trigger on it but didn't want to be greedy w two. So I passed for someone else to enjoy. Turns out to be you!!!

    I assumed they were already all spoken for. Haven't even been looking.

    So i received mine. My initial reaction is - teeny tiny frets. Hopefully i can get used to them. They are definitely smaller than any other PRS i have. Very noticeable.

    Tiny how? Height wise? Width? Both? That would be disappointing to me, most likely.

    I've always wondered why PRS never mentions fret size in the guitar descriptions as it's one of the most critical components of a guitar. That would be terribly disappointing if they stuck low profile frets on that. It's my opinion that no fret on a modern guitar should be lower than .048 tall and even that is pretty small relatively speaking. Even Fender got out of the stone ages and started outfitting their production strats with 6105 type wire.

    When I read this, I for some reason thought of Joe Pesci in Wise Guys. 'Tiny how? Am I short to you? Like some sort of little person here to amuse you tiny? Huh? Tell me how I'm Tiny':D:D:D

    height is definitely low relative to any other PRS i have. And i have many different models.

    Not sure about width.

    This may work well for a pro like Joe. For me? The jury is out.

    i think you missed my comment entirely. At my skill level narrow shallow frets don’t work well. And such fretwork is not the norm for PRS across the entire line.

    “They f*** you at the drive thru!”

    Different movie, same guy. Now I want to watch the Lethal Weapon series.

    BTW, narrow/shallow frets make for a fantastic slide guitar. But Joe knows nothing about that stuff. :rolleyes:

    I would probably choose DGT building a new guitar, but the JW size wouldn’t upset my apple cart.
