    "I read it on the interwebz, so it must be true..."

    Rumor number 1.

    PRS doesn't make working musicians' guitars. Only doctors and lawyers buy them.

    I guess that is why other guitarists FREAK OUT at my gigs when they see me using the guitars onstage. Even the S2s, lol....but when I have something like my MC58 - something with a KILLER top - I get tons of questions:

    Is that real?
    Why would you play that out?
    Can I touch it? I have never seen one in person!!!
    Are you crazy?
    Isn't that thing super expensive?

    It’s kinda hard to bring my diplomas to shows, so I’m glad they have this stigma. It makes it easier to flaunt my academic and financial superiority.

    That's the only reason I play them ........................ so chicks will *THINK* I'm a physician or attorney.

    i am personally offended when anyone with a post-secondary education tries to play blues music.

    Well hell.....I need to see a pay increase from my employer since I'm clearly a doctor or a lawyer.

    Can't decide if I should object to something or find somebody that will let me perform exploratory surgery.

    You don’t know true sorrow until you have student loan debt.

    So you can remove vital organs to sell on the Black Market in order to prolong your serious PRS habit?

    No gainful employment? I graduated from College, but I can only get a job at Hobby Lobby

    That’s how PRS keeps the riffraff out, isn’t it? :)

    Sorry.

    Does it help that I learned it before I went to a university?

    Go for the exploratory surgery. It’s way more fun.

    I've repaired ruptures on pigs so I'm confident in my abilities.

    Save up for a PS with SS frets!!!!
