    This thread keeps popping up, so I felt compelled to share mine. Nearly a year old. Still....

    I use a boost with my 594s quite often, too. I switch between a Suhr KokoBoost and a recent acquisition, the Pettyjohn Lift. Sometimes I stack them with an overdrive, but with my amps I usually don’t have to. I use the guitar volume and tone controls a lot for setting dynamics and overdrive on my amps as well.

    Enjoy that guitar, it’s a beauty!

    After it came in, I realized that it has an interesting one-piece top. Anyway, I love this guitar, and feel the same way about the Soapbar model. They sound fantastic, and play great. PRS knocked it out of the park with this model!

    I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'


    wow wow wow, it really does look like a boiling oil quilt top, Texas tea black gold.
    the gold color, is just shimmering on the flame neck

    play that black branch till blood is drippin off of it
    it reminds me a lot of the Joe Perry Gibson boneyard simply gorgeous.

    Call me weird but the first thing I noticed was just how well the amber knobs go with that top.

    Berry sexy :)

    The king of PRS GAS. He has had literally 100 PRS guitars come and (mostly) go.

    The GAS king, yes. He doesn't collect them. He hangs on to a few at a time and as grausch pointed out the new one is always the best guitar ever until he finds the next one. Ever on the hunt.

    I'm not speaking ill of Pete, though. He's a super cool guy. He was a major help in providing info on the 594 models and variations. A lot of people have gotten great deals on guitars from him secondhand.

    I certainly have! I've got three guitars and a cab that used to be his.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he is the reason the 594s sell so well - reading his posts is enough for my credit card to wish it could go into the witness protection program. Not speaking ill of Pete, just envious...

    I seem to be headed in that direction, because it’s hard to put the guitar down! They’re wonderful guitars, aren’t they?

    Not weird at all. They really do!

    What happens with me is that I get all excited about the looks at first, but once I get used to playing a guitar, it starts being about the sound and feel, and the looks recede into the background. Every so often, though, I step back and appreciate their beauty.

    We are all so lucky to play art on every level!

    It's been rumored - but not yet confirmed - that there is an alantig Bidet somewhere in Paul's house.

    Totally agree with the lucky part. My 594 isn't just a guitar, it's an emblem of how unbelievably fortunate I've been in this world.

    I must admit my own vanity tho... as good as she feels and sounds, I'm still into her stunning good looks :)
