    This thread is for everyone to share pics of their first PRS guitar whether you still own it or the guitar has been passed off to another's hands.

    Here is my old Singlecut, Eve:

    Loved this guitar to bits and I hope to buy it back one day when I'm in a better financial situation.

    I bought a natural CE at the same time, but I no longer have it.

    My first.... a 96 Cu22. It was a bit strange in that it had a stoptail, locking tuners, and McCarty Pickups and McSwitching. I bought it in 96, was sold to me as a McCarty.....

    Great guitar, wish I still had it.

    My First PRS - Private Stock HBII. Just played it last night for the first time through my Two Rock. It was like it was new all over again. The love continues.

    I just bought my first electric guitar, this 22 Semi-Hollow, LTD, a few years ago. Still have it for playing jazz, blues, rock, and slide, never a thought of selling it. Found it at Dave's Guitars in Wisconsin while browsing their website. I was trying to find my first electric guitar, one that would grab me by the neck and demand to be purchased, and was quite amazed to see that PRS had a limited edition semi-hollow. The color caught my eye immediately, and the design (mostly but not completely semi-hollow) made me want to learn more. Called Dave's and later conversed with somebody at PRS about the tone I was looking for (similar to a 335 but more contemporary). Bought it the next day.

    Even after two years of loving this guitar, I continue to feel fortunate to have found an affordable, quality semi-hollow with the tone I was seeking.

    1996 Custom 22, 10 top, Dragon Pickups. I bought it new at Chuck Levins after playing 15 PRSi. I loved its tone, still do.

    My first was a '98ish CE 22 stoptail. I quickly found out that, while the WT neck felt good in the store, it caused to much hand pain. Sold this one and went WF and never looked back.

    I jumped in at the deep end with the 2009 Leese Golden Eagle, which I bought used at the end of 2010.

    My one and only PRS experience - a 1999 Custom 22 with wide-fat, rotary, and stoptail. Almost sold it this year, but changed my mind and plan to change out the Dragon II pickups in the next few weeks.
