Happy to help!
Totally agree on this. To my eyes, a thin, tight flame like you see on this 594 and on the 594 pic on the PRS page is more compelling than a wider flame that doesn’t carry from end to end. But some folks go nuts for those more characterful tops. What’s great about this Santana’s top, to me, is that it has both regularity and character—the holy grail, though it’s far from alone in this, to judge by all the great shots you see on this forum and others!
Best of all, all three of these guitars are keepers in terms of sonics and playability. I’d have saved a boatload in experimentation over the past decade if I’d discovered them earlier.
I’m curious that no one’s called out the DGT in the looks department. To my eyes, the only DGTs I found online that could beat it for aesthetics were a few PSs at 4 times the cost. Then again, I’m in the honeymoon phase with this one and am positively blown away by its ability to cover clean to grind, and all steps in between! (If this is what a Korina neck can help do, I’ll defintely be looking for one in the future.)
Great taste Tramp
That cross grain look you see on the bottom half in the pic is just killer.
Another look at the DGT
Such a great top!
Agree. I like tops like that.
A good dead spot is way underrated.
I can't help thinking of toffee or hot caramel when I look at it
I like that, Guitpicky. I gather it's a Honey Burst but Hot Caramel works for me!
There's just way too many angles to play that one from. I'm gonna behave myself and leave it alone
Similar in quilt to @Elliot 30th anniversary CU24!
That ps Santana gives me a semi for sure. Excellent guitar. Shwing!
Oh man what a trio
Congrats on your new aquisition
Wow to all 3...nice set!
Thanks for the kind words, all. I’m very happy with these three and am finding that, despite the sonic family resemblance, each has its own thing going. I have to take a break from the acquisition thing but am already thinking what the next bigger neck one would be.
