    My first ever PRS guitar.
    I just fell in love with the new pickups and Northern Lights finish. The curly maple top sure is flamy.
    I have long been a loyal fan of Gibson and James Tyler but this ME5 really blew my mind.

    TCI pickups are great and the coil splits on both PU's are fantastic.

    I am afraid I have never used any 408's, Cu's or any other PRS guitars before so I can't really make any comparison to those but I think I can say this one is truly versatile. It has a warm and sparkly clean tone, both with the middle pickup and coil splits. Also, I can still hear the harmonics even at a high gain setting.

    I have had Madagascar rosewood fretboard on James Tyler, Ebony on my R57. Though I can't really tell if the Brazilian rosewood fretboard makes much difference but I am impressed with the build quality and sound of this new guitar.

    Well done, Paul.

    Those are beautiful guitars! Can’t wait to try one myself.

    I can’t see your pictures on my machine for some reason, though. Congrats!
