    I just reread the forum rules to make sure this is ok. I believe it is. Just a shout out of support for Dave’s guitars. (I’m sure most of us are aware of Dave’s huge supply of PRS guitars)

    I always said I’d never buy a guitar I hadn’t played. But in these weird times I came across a SE hollowbody standard at a good price and took the leap.

    It arrived yesterday in great shape. In fact I’d say it was better than the description and the pictures

    Great service. Quick response. All positive no negative

    Finally. I have no experience with any of the other Prs dealers So I’m not making comparisons. Just relaying a positive experience.
    Thanks
    Oh yeah. The guitar feel sounds and looks fantastic.

    He’s a by the books good dude. I must’ve cost them at least two sales because my address wasn’t properly verified.

    I mean that in a positive sense. He don’t [email protected] around.

    I did a trade deal with Dave’s awhile ago and it went perfectly smooth. I’ve yet to have anything but an awesome experience with all of the PRS dealers that frequent this forum.

    They are my local shop in Madison. It hasn’t been all wine and Roses, but I trust Josiah and crew with all the work I can’t do myself.

    The Madison shop hasn’t been getting many PRSes lately, which makes me sad. Asking them to bring one up from LaCrosse has seemed in the past like a commitment to buy. I would have loved to play an SE hollow body, but I can’t find one to try anywhere nearby.

    I bought all three of my PRS guitars from Dave’s, shipped to
    Pennsylvania. An exemplary dealer, in my experience.

    I got used a Studio and a replacement case for my core Starla from them as well. Couldn't have been happier with their communication. I toured the factory a few years ago, and I saw this beautiful custom 24 semi-hollow, wood library, charcoal (or was it black?), and with the most insane mahogany back (in clear) I have ever seen to this date. I inquired if they knew where it was going, and it was Dave's. Contacted them about it, and was so close to getting it. It was the charcoal finish which finally convinced me I should wait. If it had been any other finish, I would have done it. But they were great to work with. The guitar hadn't been presold, and they sent me pictures as soon as they got it in house.

    Yeah. When those used hollowbodies come in I look long and hard. But I am pretty fussy about neck shape. So I really would like to play one.

    I have a Ibanez AM-83 semi hollow, which I like a lot, and the PRS would have to be pretty special for me to switch.

    Bought a few from Dave's, and each has been better than expected, total satisfaction. Great place.

    It's of the (ahem) non-PRS variety this time around, so it may remain anonymous, even though it is entirely badass.

    Really awesome dealer throughout the entire buying process. Dealt with both Tylor and Tim. Very nice Wood Library runs, constant flow of used instruments at insanely great deals (SE electrics and acoustics are so tempting every time they list them...).
    I've had equally great experiences with Moore Guitars, Bizarre Guitars, Danville Music to name a few.

    I almost bought that one when it popped up but decided to buy some other guitar parts/pedals instead. The great thing about buying a used PRS from Dave's is that if you don't connect with it you can sell it and get most if not all of your money back.
