    I broke down and bought one, mostly due to watching Greg Koch's videos over and over. The one I chose might be a little on the heavy side (8.7 lbs), not sure if that's a good thing or bad. I'd like to hear about the experiences from owners! Thanks!

    Great, great guitars. More mid push than the regular DGT. Similar, but different. Gives up a a tiny tiny bit in the low end and a little in the high end vs the maple top, a trades that for more mids (very generally speaking). Ive owned several and they've all been great.

    Mine is a 2012 model. The previous owner had requested the "blue jean burst" finish and replaced the original DGT pickups with a 59/09 in the bridge and a 57/08 in the neck. I had it reset for Drop C# tuning and I have to say that it's considerably lighter than my Les Paul and still packs a heavy punch through my 6505+s (half stack and combo). It's also got a sweet clean sound, especially when coil tapped. I can't see myself playing any other guitar than this one. Since I got it over a month ago, I haven't even played my 4 other guitars. It's truly an amazing instrument that I will enjoy for a lifetime.

    Ha ha, yours could certainly set the "standard". Stunning DGT. I'm hoping to hear from owners of ones that don't have the maple top. Welcome to the forum!

    Been gigging Mr. Clean ('11 DGT Std) for 2 years solid and it's still, easily, my #1. It doesn't have a bodacious top, it doesn't have phenomenal birds, nor perfling, binding or other niceties. It's a plain-Jane, vintage white, screaming war machine!. I love love love this guitar. Tonal flexibility, rock-solid intonation, comfortable...what else is there? Though i'm a nobody in a bar band, I can easily say that the task is easier and more enjoyable because of my gear and this guitar is a big part of that. Highly recommended.

    I agree with this...I have three DGTs, an 09, an 11 wood library (from Martin Music), and a 12 standard. The 09 has more nasty to it, the 11 has a bit more of a sophisticated sound, the standard leans a bit more nasty but the mid push is what is noticable.

    Fantastic instruments. The Ferrari of guitars: muscular, sleek, gorgeous. I have an 08 and I actually feel better with the guitar on me than with it off.

    Enjoy!

    I couldn't agree more with this statement. I've been telling my guitar playing friends (mostly LP players, as I was previously) that the difference is mind-blowing. In the past, I was always bouncing around between the LP, Strat, Tele and a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR and was just never satisfied playing one of them for more than a week. My PRS has been the only one I play now and I am still as excited now as I was when I first got it.

    Mine came with EMG 81/85 combo pups. I swapped those out for black covered Bare knuckle Miracle Man pups and it transformed it into a players guitar. It just feels good in you hands and the BK pups are magic!
