    So I've posted in few other threads related to the model release itself or the Expereince 2018, but I got some outside-in-sunshine shots finally, so here's a NGD thread!

    I'v played it three nights in a row now, and it continues to shine, with all the various tones I can get from the pickup selections. As mentioned elsewhere, I think it has 12 different combinations of pickups and coil tapping or not.

    Oh, it was slamming my Archon last night, great clean and lead tones!

    Good strat position 2 and 4 tones with coil taps activated.

    Trem feels great, nice and stable - as always is my Experience with PRS. (See what I did there?)

    Weight is nice - I haven't weighed it, but the semi-hollow obviously helps. Not neck heavy.

    A huge shout out to Brian's Guitars for having this on display at Experience 2018 - I couldn't keep my eyes off it!

    Oh, and the strap was picked up at the West St Store at Experience 2018. Had to have a nice strap for my new beauty!

    It’s really thoughtful of you to buy your garden a matching guitar.
    A really nice guitar.

    Great pictures!

    I can honestly say that is one beautiful guitar because I've never been a huge fan of that color, but that one makes me reconsider.

    I'm a sucker for the uniqueness factor, and that finish has it.

    “She’s a beaut Clark!”

    Makes me think about flipping my neck pickup on my Brent Mason.
    ...or I could just get one of those!
    Enjoy it.

    I have a question for you. I had a Custom 22 with 3 P90's that I had to let go because the middle pickup just kept getting in the way of picking. I was constantly hitting it with either my hand or the pick or both. Does the middle narrow field pickup get in your way at all? Or is it like a Strat where you do not even notice it's there? (My apologies for that nasty "S" word).
