I posted this as a reply to another thread and thought I would ask others what they think in a broader conversation. It was in response to someone saying that they assumed that the OP of a question thread was looking to purchase new as opposed to used. This was my reply.... "One of the things that I really like about the "cork sniffer" mentality of some PRS owners is that you can ALWAYS find a 10 or even 15 year old guitar that basically IS new. It will have been played two or three times a year, just when someone comes over that knows what they are looking at. And by the time it makes it to the used market, it is still basically a new guitar but at a better price.....and the woods have settled about as much as they are going to by then. Unlike a lot of [particularly] Fender fans, the idea of a guitar that is in "relic" condition doesn't seem to be nearly as big amongst the PRS people. And a pristine specimen is always available as a result. So, you CAN buy new if you want. But you don't really have to and can still get one in a "like new" condition." Just wondering how you all feel about that.
