I got it last week - haven't taken any pics of it yet but here's one of it being gigged last Friday:
Nice. I'm really liking Makena Blue
Great looking guitar HT... Looking forward to seeing more pics of this beauty!!!
Fudge.............................. I think you got my Guitar Tim :tongue:
Very cool Muh-man :rock: :rock:
What neck carve is it?
How does it compare to your other PRS's in the stable?
Waiting for more info on when mine will arrive.
That is very likely because there was an anonymous note in the case addressed to "My dearest shnookie Markie" - the rest of the message is not appropriate for the forum.
Dig it. How do you like the 408's with BRW?
Nice! I'm loving my new 408 Standard but there are times those maple tops start a calling!
I didn't even look at the tag - it's not a thin neck so it must be a regular pattern carve.
Very favorably. It feels great, excellent fit and finish. In terms of tone, it sounds pretty close to my PS Signature (no surprise there). I wouldn't mind if it were a pound or so lighter but it's not as heavy as several other guitars I have.
So far, so good. It sounded killer at the gig. I never even plugged it into my rig before hand - I just restrung it, set it up, and took it to the gig. I've been using my Stars & Stripes Sig in rehearsal lately so I had a good idea of how this guitar would fit the music and it performed pretty much as I had expected.
Do you think that makes that much of a difference? I'm not sure if I could tell the difference or not with a blind test - it'd be interesting to try a several with/without maple tops to compare.
Great score Tim!!!
Beautiful guitar, enjoy it Tim!
Not sure - the Standard sounds killer and feels exactly like my old McCarty which had the same (well, Wide/Fat vs Pattern) neck but I didn't get to A/B it against a MT model. I did play a couple of MT Studios but the 408 felt and sounded better to me. A nice flame top just looks so good, though ...
That guitar is so yummy even your shirt wants a taste! haha
Very nice fret board. Congrats
Dammit .............................................. & Shawn left me a note
Thanks for not sharing the remainder of the note Tim :redface:
Just found this on YouTube - comparing the maple top Sig Ltd with the all-mahogany 408 Standard (albeit with the rosewood neck):
408 sounds a lot like mine - even with the rosewood neck, To me, the Sig Ltd sounds 'hollower' - maybe more detailed with that? - a little more top end and a little less mids? 408 Standard sounds beefier which, for what I play, is better for me but I can see how subtler, more technical playing might benefit from the greater nuances from the maple top Sig.
It looks great.
Those aren't the birds I was expecting.
