    We seem to be on similar paths. I bought my first PRS, a 90’s Std22, in 2003. You can see it in my avatar picture. I’ve now got the Santana/Westie fever!

    Hello folks - intro post. I recently bought my 3rd PRS, a 1989 Custom 24. My first one was in 1985, serial number in the 40's maybe, one of the first batch of 5 or so that arrived at Corner music in Nashville that year. I just happened to walk in right as they were hanging them up, and immediately knew there was something special going on, and that this guitar maker had been reading my mind. That one was the best guitar I've ever owned, but I had to sell it while unemployed a few years later.

    Welcome mike, and you have picked a fine instrument to start your journey. Hoping you’ll make a NGD thread, look forward to seeing your new guitar.

    Bought a private stock during lockdown.
    I'm afraid to play it

    Don't be!! I did too, and I'm already wearing out strings!

    They're beautiful guitars, real works of art, but (IMO) they're meant to be played!

    Don’t worry about it. They look great, but the playing experience is something else. Give it a chance to make you love it forever.

    Hello all,
    I received my 2020 DGT late last week, and I just cannot believe how incredible this guitar is! Best-guitar-ever (for me) (until the next nitro-finish PRS finds its way to my yearning mitts!). :D
    Cheers!

    Hi guys and gals,

    Been lurking for a while, but now I am a happy PRS owner thought I better get more involved

    I have a bought a 2016 Vela, in ice blue metallic with birds, and it’s awesome everything I hoped it would be and more, I am quite in into modding my guitars so have already dropped in a custom low wind Alnico ii In the bridge and a custom wound vintage firebird in the neck alongside a mint pick guard.

    I am in a blues/classic rock covers band playing rhythm and Harmonica and play out regularly ( or did until the world got ill).

    so a big Hello from the U.K.

    Cheers

    Fram

    G'day

    Thanks for allowing me into the PRS asylum.

    I bought my first electric guitar aged 16, a black 1967 Telecaster Custom in 1982.

    I bought my second electric guitar, a 2017 PRS SE Zack Myers last week.

    My oh my how things have changed over the last 50 years of guitar development.
