    Nice selection / collection. I started with one in 2018 (SE CU24), two in 2019 (SE245 & A55E) and two more in 2020 (Kestrel Bass and 2001 Santana SE). at this rate, I will have to buy 5 in 2021 to make up for the third I didn't buy in 2020, plus 4 more for 2021.:rolleyes:

    I've got to say, i really like the old Swamp Ash Specials. They're very versatile!

    Yes, the tungsten color is awesome! That would have been my first choice. But this one came second hand and looks beautiful in frost.
    The pickguard on it is almost greenish/vintage. I don't know if someone made a special pickguard for it.
    The neck and the playabaility is great. Just try it!

    Nice set - it took me 2 years to get to 3 PRS and 4 years to get to my current 5.
    You've really covered a lot of bases with those choices!

    Well, procuring PRSi with dings does seem to be the OP's Modus Operandi, so that is more than appropriate.

    Well, I’ve been thinking about this a lot, since getting two core models in less than a month’s time, and need to justify my behavior. From no interest at all to being obsessed in no time. The only thing I can think of is that the PRS guitars makes me want to play and I don’t want to stop. And when playing more the skills improve and it’s even more fun to play. So it becomes a positive spiral. I think there’s no end to this. Now, should I get a Paul’s or a DGT next?o_O

    Paul himself preaches this message.

    Consider a hollow body with piezo. It will give you some range further from what you have now.

    Thanks mate, I’m intrigued by the hollow bodies, Vela HB:s looks great, but at the moment I’m a true closet player (playing through headphones via an Iridium) and being quiet is key to getting any play time at all. I’m not joking about the closet.:)

    That wooden stool sure builds character.:p

    Piezo in my mind has always been something a simple acoustic simulator pedal could do, but I’ve got no experience with either.

    But this wasn’t really my thread and I’ve been harassing this place continuously about thoughts on the matter in other threads. I’ve promised myself four premium guitars in one year is enough (...clock is slowly counting down to 2021...:))!

    Sorry OP. Btw, nice collection you’ve started!

    Playing quietly is one of the nice features of a hollow body. You get enough acoustic sound that you can play unplugged without disturbing anyone. This is why I travel with one.

    Ahhh, a man of taste.

    And you don’t even have to drink the Kool-aid. To quote @]-[@n$0Ma☩!© :

    If the DA setting is like a fine red wine that is best appreciated by educated pallets, the HX is a flaming shot of tequila from the navel of a stripper named Dominica.

    Intoxicating either way!

    Bad news. You have to have a Prime Number of PRS. I think 17 is a good number.

    Aha, thanks, I didn’t know this! See, this is the kind of valuable information you only find in this place! I suppose the smaller prime numbers aren’t safe enough? I’ll try 3 and take it from there!:p

    Most of the women I know believe 31 is better than 17.

    Bought my first in '89, then waited 24 years to by the 2nd. Decided that was too long so I bought 8 more in 5 years! Welcome to addiction
