    Hey all! I have been around this thread awhile as I find these forums quite interesting, but I decided to finally sign up, and I felt that it would be a good starter for me to post my new trade.

    I recently Traded my 2019 Fender American Professional Strat as it just wasn't giving me the sound I was looking for, and got a mint condition 2002 PRS Swamp ash special in this really nice blue color.

    I know it has only been a day, but I don't miss that Strat one bit so far. Really loving this.

    I've been looking around a bit as well, seems not a ton of people are too big on the Seymour Duncan rail in the middle, so I plan on swapping the pickups even just so I can A/B them.

    I got a set of BareKnucle Mules for the two Humbuckers, and I plan on putting a Lindy Fralin Blues Special in the middle.

    Apart from that I hope everyone is having a great day!

    Here she is:

    Oh man lol, can't be doing that now I already got another 2001 PRS CE24 I do love so much as well.

    I had a Custom 24 Angry Larry, but I sold it.

    I do love my time with PRS I do hope to try more soon!

    I love that color on the ash wood grain. I've got to try an SAS for myself!

    I have one from that era. Great guitars. Yours is much prettier than mine.

    They are all pretty in their own way.
    I don't think I dislike how any PRS guitar looks thus far.

    Swamp Ash has such distinctive grain, always a good looking guitar.

    Welcome to the rabbit hole!

    Thanks! Definitely my favorite rabbit hole I have been down so far.
    I expect to like the trip, having dabbled in PRS a few times already I plan on staying.

    Aw man! Angry Larry is my favorite PRS color and isn't seen very much.

    I also can't say I've ever seen a blue SAS before either. Very cool!

    I kinda miss the angry larry, but I am not big on red guitars.

    Congrats! I have a SAS in Blue Matteo.

    I don't mind that middle pickup at all, but maybe I'm just not well-versed in other options.

    I like the rail on mine. It gives the guitar a different character than my other PRS(s)
