Les made me do it. Sunday I played my Angelus and was surprised how big a voice it had...until I realized the cable to my amp footswitch was loose so it wasn't really on mute. Oh well. Then I played the Tonare. For a couple of days I pondered the only one question and this morning made a short video - it ain't art, but I'll get to that later. The Angelus is the last PRS I bought and it was all the fault of Private Stock Friday. The first public appearance of DFD hooked me up. Madagascar Rosewood back and sides. Torrified Adirondack top. Peruvian Mahogany neck. Ebony/Koa fretboard. What's not to like. Nice and compact and easy to play. The Tonare is an early Collection, before the era of the electric/acoustic pairings. Pernambuco back and sides. European spruce top. Again Peruvian mahogany neck, this time with African Blackwood board. Not a combination you'll find at the local subway station. Both guitars have good specs, but acoustically, the Tonare has a unique voice. It rings incredibly well with amazing note separation. When I pick it up, I kind of just want to play notes so that I can hear them ring. It almost forces you to tell a story with it. The Angelus is a bit more a musician's tool. It gets all the notes, has good dynamic response but is a bit more willing to play an accompanying part. I would more likely pick this one up if someone was playing the piano. The video is a bit over 4 minutes. Nothing fancy. I just play about a minute of 4 different snippets swapping between guitars about half way. One take, no patching the video (I'm to lazy for that). - a bit of finger picking - a bit of single note with a pick - a bit of strumming with some dynamic variation - a bit of the lower end, since I hadn't hit that yet These are just the kinds of things I do when trying out a guitar. They are more geared to letting me hear how the guitar responds than to being particularly musical. Which do you keep?
