For those of you in the know, I was not quick in becoming a PRS owner.

This was a result of immense kindness from you wonderful people (Jim & Sergio to mention a couple).

I have deliberated for some time over my next purchase and a couple of weeks ago this beauty came up for sale.

I gulped as soon as I saw it. I’m a big figured wood guy and the medial (medullary) rays on this just caught my eye.

I did all the usual checks, asking the seller to send more pics (just in case).

I took advice from a couple of knowledgeable guys on here and felt a hand on my back pushing me toward the “buy it now” button.

Well, with the postal strikes we’re experiencing here, it took sometime to arrive. Being the cautious guy I am, I didn’t want to “crack a light”, just in case it didn’t happen.

It arrived and I gave it some love, strings, fretboard and fret polish. And of course a gentle polish of the body & neck.

Enough of my blethering, here’s some pics.









It’s really resonant and all that Sergio said it would be.

I guess I’m a proper forum member now. Thanks everyone for allowing me to share this great day with you all.

I’m off to make some noise through my Mesa.
