    Haven't been visiting this forum in a while - got me 3 PRS guitars (one is not pictured, an S2 22 that I've put a Lindy Fralin set into, my workhorse) in the past 6 months and I feel my addiction is finally sated.

    So, if I get a band/project/session that brings some more coin to the table... a McCarty Goldtop or a black Core Mira? (the question is which one to get first, not whether to get both, that one's a YES).

    Oh, yeah, the title was a lie. Sorry.

    Yes to the Mira, but you're missing something P90-ish also.
    Otherwise well done :cool:

    Here's my workhorse, an S2 22 with a Lindy Fralin Twangmaster in the bridge and a Fralin noiseless Alnico Rod P90 in the neck. Super tele-like vibe to the tone and that PRS playability to boot. Push-pull in the middle position for out-of-phase tones (for some cocked-wah style riffing and soloing).

    Glad you caught that! I love reggae, ska, rnb and funky stuff, first solo I ever learned was the studio solo to No Woman No Cry :)

    Yeah, each one I've tried thus far has been way too heavy for me, looking for a lighter option (hence the McCarty and Mira suggestions). My back has an ironclad veto on this. :D

    You need a Mira, and you need something Soapy, something like this 25th Anniversary model...

    You mean the light blue one (third from the left)? That's a powder blue 305.

    Next to it is a vintage white Swamp Ash Special; when my guitar tech was taking it apart for a complete setup, he discovered it was actually a model that originally came with 3 Narrowfields, but the first owner modded it with a PRS humbucker in the bridge, effectively turning it into a Studio (my fave pickup configuration).

    @RickP: wow, that's a VERY interesting & beautiful choice. And a hardtail on top of that, bonus points.

    It’s not over until you’ve spent your kid’s lunch money to get a Private Stock and hide it from your soon to be former wife :)

    Awesome. Right, blue! Hard to tell on my laptop screen.

    Beautiful lineup!

    Boy, that's pretty grim if you take it seriously. Makes my addiction look like child's play.

    Actually my wife(-to-be) helped me buy 3 of the guitars on the picture (the 305, the Johnny Hiland and the Swamp Ash Special), she's a keeper. Can't really justify buying a Private Stock though, I consider that a "four-digit sum per gig" level... not there yet.

    Congrats on the wife-to-be. I’m at the four digit sum per gig level, but can’t afford the PS guitars. $50.00 just isn’t doing it. :D

    :D yeah, I'm at a $200 per gig minimum, but I get more sax gigs than guitar or piano at the moment. It gets tough if you don't have a steady gig.
