Hi all, So I joined the club a couple of days ago and thought I share some pics of my new axe. I’ve never owned a PRS before this but went all in on a ‘new to me’ Flamey beast. I might call it blurry since the flame is wide and indistinct. Whoever had it before me had put 10’s on it and took out two springs but hadn’t adjusted the truss rod so the low E was a bit buzzy. I’ve put 11’s on it and put back all the springs just to see where things should sit but I can’t play it like this, at least not comfortably. My hats off to all the meaty hands out there that like 11’s. Restringing this guitar was a joy though, those locking phase III tuners are amazing. Anyway, it’s a 2018 (came out of the factory in January) with the bound neck which I’m fine with coming from the Les Paul world, the birds are Abalone and Mother of Pearl on a Ziricote board. The carve is beautiful. I’m spending most of my time playing with the coils tapped, both pickups on and the volumes rolled back with an EP Booster between the guitar and amp. I’m sure as my ears adjust to the new instrument I’ll find some other sounds that work for me to. Full on the bridge pickup does a great ‘Waitin’ for the Bus’ tone. And here are the pics: Fresh from the unboxing... And resting by the fire: Now to get those 10’s back on and get it adjusted properly.
