    A truly enviable collection!

    I truly hope it is complete, but there is something in the human psyche that makes it near impossible for us to ever stop.

    It's light, but I don't like hollowbodies (the only exception is the Gibson Lucille) or more accurately, I don't like the attack. I don't know how to describe it, each picked note feels like a gut-punch cough, like it's all air and no density to it. I like that when I play acoustic, it's a whole different playing style and a tone to the strings, but with an electric, it just feels... wrong. I tried quite a few - the PRS HB II, Gibson L-5, Lucille, a few jazz boxes - and I figured out it's simply the feel of it.

    I've thought about Korina-bodied beauties too... not a lot of weight to em.

    Very nice! There are some lighter weight SCs out there, assuming 8lbs counts as lighter weight. I have back issues but I still mostly play SCTs these days.

    Being PRS GAS free is a temporary condition and it will pass :) it creeps in slowly at first then you start to look at Reverb and eBay then check out the dealers then one night BAM you hit the button and NGD.
    Enjoy being GAS free while you can.
