Sure thing, please contact The Electric Factory, the PRS distributor in Australia.
I have, like Bodia, gone down this road before and said its not for me, but this is REALLY making my think again about it. In RED.
Made in the USA?
Hope all you guys that have ordered one (or three) get them safe and sound.
Looking forward to tone clips from you lucky lads and lasses (please)!
Or speak with some of the bigger PRS dealers @Laurent
Sky music in Melbourne, Port Mac / guitar factory in Sydney etc.
Only my guess, but it makes me think of a S2/bolt on body/neck format with all core components/electronics.
So yeah... I'm thinking all USA.
Xxxx bucks and no hardshell case...
looking at this reminds me what a fabulous guitar my gunmetal grey Carvin Bolt is...
I'm afraid getting one will make my 513 AP somewhat redundant
But the pull is so strong
Did you know that guitars with a hardshell case sound different than guitars with a gig bag?
The difference is the sound of people whining on the internet.
1. I need this guitar.
2. I need that amp, what the hell is that thing? SMOKIN! And I love how it's ALL FIVES FOR THE TEST DRIVE, that's about as honest as you can get.
3. So many tones.
4. PRS craftsmanship.
5. KILLER SOUNDING PICKUPS. DID I SAY TONE?
6. I also now need a PRS with 3 humbuckers. SO. SEXY. (background axe).
Thanks for the post, Shawn!
Will these tuners fit on a Bernie? Or the older McCarty? Please tell me I can order them from the store in the near future?
Good question!! If these locking "vintage" tuners can retro-fit a McCarty or OG singlecut, I would love a set!
I'm not in the market for this because, well I just can't afford it at the moment, but I notice some interesting details in the specs here
Nitrocellulose for the neck but not for the body. A little disappointing as I think the traditional vibe of this guitar would have suited it - I won't get in to the sound argument, but a nice thin nitro coat wears easier than a poly/acrylic one, and I think a guitar like this should wear it's battle scars with pride.
Tone control for bridge pickup a la Eric Johnson Strat is good to see, really makes the bridge pickup more usable. Notice that the other tone control covers both neck and middle.
300K volume pot. Making sure that they get all of the signal out of those single coils. I think the combination of the 300k volume and tone controls on all of the pickups is an interesting tweak over the F standard.
Locking tuners!! How I wish this was what you got on a vintage style Strat. Well I guess now you do.
I read on another thread that the bridge is set up so that it's flush to the body. Downward bends only. This combined with the locking tuners should make it super stable.
Overall, sounds like a good modern interpretation of a vintage instrument.
Any idea if the price tag will be cheaper after the first 500 since it's a soft case?
Dumb question I know
I think the $xxxx is the price for one with a gigbag
I´m all for PRS and was very happy about the announcement of this model because I was gassing for one since I first saw the little leaks from John playing it.
But now that the specs are out - and the pricing to go with it - I can only ask one thing: "...really...?"
I´m usually defending the guitars price wise, but this is one step too far, even for me.
Poly body? No Nitro, not even V12?
Scarf Joint Neck ???? Come on, that is some serious cost cutting and even the big "F" doesn´t use multi piece maple necks......
No hard case - OK, I could live with that, but again, if you look at the competition S-STyle guitars in that price range the allcome in a hardcase.
These are S2 Specs for real money. That is not justified, even if it sounds and plays awesome
Would have loved this guitar, but with these construction specs it will not be for me.
Ok I might be reading this wrong, but it seems there will be a "635 Race" to get it with a hard case and who comes last will get it with the soft one for the same price, I find this a bit unfair really.
Just seen the videos. Wow that sounds good
Lots of things I don’t get, but ok, this is a signature guitar, the artist can do whatever he wants. But:
- poly finish. Really?
- 7.25 radius...are bends prohibited by law now?
- 6230 frets????? These are the old vintage frets. Small. Tall and narrow are 6105, which are basically STANDARD for any good strat these days for the last 20 years or so.
- xxxx and gig bag. Is this an exclusive GC run and you get the case for an extra 300 or something?
By this time there are probably hundreds of PS spec sheets hitting the factory. These will address most of these issues, for some amount of money though.
