    Markie's new DGT got me thinking. Many folks have killer PRS collections, but with so many amazing guitars how do they pick their favorites?

    So let's see 'em. Post 'em up.

    Your 3 favorite PRS Guitars

    My humble collection will not come close to some others out there, but here are my three:

    This Cu22 w/BRW neck was made for PRSH to take on buisness trips.

    This 2000 SC was made for Orkie

    The last one was a tough choice between my 88 CE24 that has tone from heaven, and this Cu24AP

    It may take Mark and Steve a few weeks to sort this one out.

    Here are mine.

    Not fancy, but a favorite. An early black SAS stoptail.

    My favorite 3:

    [​IMG]

    Jade Glow Private Stock DC 245 Ted, my favorite guitar ever!


    [​IMG]

    A magical TGS creation, a DC 245 with a Madagascar Rosewood Neck and a Trem.


    [​IMG]

    Another great TGS creation, "Earth Custom 24", 5.5 pounds with an Obeche body. I can't seem to find it though, I think I left it at the PTC for a refin! ;)


    [​IMG]

    This one coming soon, might make it into the top 3 when it arrives, SC 245 Ted with an Obeche body and McCarty thickness, should be very lightweight. 408 pickups and Signature switching.

    Over my 4 year journey with PRS guitars, I have been more of a DC guy than an SC guy, but I did go through a few SC-centric phases, once with the SC 58's (3 of those) and again with the Wood Library SC Ted's (5 of those!). My back has been bothering me lately, which has contributed to me going almost exclusively to DC's.

    You mean this one? ;) The Ultraviolet IRW SC (and Andy's Glacier Blue) was sold to fund the above Private Stocks. The bottom guitar in the oven at the Wood Library is Armando's Amethyst, in honor of that great Ultraviolet one you sold me! :D

    I recognize some of these, Pete's "Earth" and Bob's "Metal" in particular.
