Well, in the spirit on sampling any and all 2020 TCI PRS Guitars with a vintage slant, a belated NGD for a 2020 DGT I picked up last week, just got it back from my tech with new strings (9s) and a setup. Uncharacteristically for me, it is a non-10-top. I dug the simple look of it, sort of like a Classic Singlecut "Plaintop" from the 50's. Plus being a non-10, I got it for a great price. I have owned several DGTs over the years, and I know I love the tones but the Neck Carve and the Frets are really not for me, so I figured a non-10 would take less depreciation if I later sold it. I wanted the 2020 with TCI pickups, otherwise I would have considered a used one. The first two pics above show more flame than it usually actually shows, it looks more like these two below with very little flame that just barely peeks out every once in a while. I dig that about this guitar, a plain top with the killer McCarty Sunburst finish (with that Teardrop versus Contour Burst that the DGTs have) and the Cherry Back. They were doing them with binding for a while, looks like they went back to no binding. Bummer! Interesting that they went to Speed Knobs this year. Tones are GREAT! My tech really dug it. He liked the snarly tones versus the more subtle tones of the 5815 LTs in my many 594s (he loves the 594s as well, especially the 2 SCs and the Hollowbody). I still don't love the neck carve or the Jumbo Frets. With regards to the neck carve, it is more about the resulting string spacing (strings are closer together with the 1/16" narrower nut width) than the neck carve itself. 594 Frets are basically DGT frets flattened off to be shorter - so if I decide to keep it longer-term, I can have the frets done to match the 594s. I am not as much minding the 25" scale this time around, on this or the 25" McCarty. I still prefer the 594 scale, my favorite ever and "home" for me, but I so far find the 25" scale good to mix it up with regards to both feel and tones. One of these days maybe I will do a Private Stock DGT with a Pattern or Pattern Vintage Neck Carve and 594 Frets, with Binding. That to me would be a perfect DGT. Maybe with the adjustable Stoptail. (I had two DGT Stoptail back in the day, one from the Willcutt WL run, and one from the Wildwood PS run, they were both pretty great! Although I think I liked my Trem ones slightly better re tone - my best one was a Willcutt WL Trem.) Probably wouldn't be first on my list though, I have some other thoughts for this year for a potential Private Stock that would be centered more around something 594. Wildwood did that 594 Scale PS DGT run a couple of years back - I was intrigued to try one of those, but I wasn't buying guitars at that time. They actually have one of them back there now as a used one, which I considered, but I didn't care for the top or finish, and it was more than I was willing to spend on a DGT, at a time where here in my return from the guitar hiatus is focused much more so on the 594s (where my focus has been since the Feb 2016 GOM, almost exactly four years ago!). Love these DGT pickups! A nice contrast to the 594s. Sounds great through the new DG 30 - but that shouldn't be a surprise!
