    TDPRI and Strat Talk mostly. I participate most on those two, strat talk because I'm mostly a strat guy, and TDPRI because I also love teles and it's a bigger friendly community there. There's a LOT of overlap between those two forums. They're kind of home for me in terms of guitar forums. I love Ibanez semi-hollow models to a degree I don't think very many other people do, so I'd love it if there was an active forum for that kind of gear, but there's not, just an occasional discussion here or there, now and then.

    I also use The Gear Page, but I mostly USE that as a searchable database. It's just too damn huge and busy to maintain any sort of dialog unless it's in a small handful of watched threads that you have some interest in. But there's a huge collection of knowledge buried in the history of that place and if I'm wondering about a piece of gear or have some other question, doing a search there is not a bad place to start. I don't feel any sense of community there, though, at least not one I'm likely to be part of. I VERY occasionally stop by the Acoustic Guitar Forum and use it in much the same way, but that's an incredibly rare thing - maybe 2-3 times in the year and a half I've been playing a lot again.

    I'm here because I had a 594 for a few months and it was my dream guitar and I loved it immensely and I enjoy the enthusiasm for all things PRS in this community. But I couldn't comfortably play that guitar in my preferred seated position due to the leg cut location and I recently sold it. Since that leg cut location appears to be shared by almost every PRS body out there except the Silver Sky, I'm extremely unlikely to ever own another PRS unless I eventually do try a Silver Sky. Which won't happen anytime soon, but it could happen someday. So now I'm just kind of hanging out because I still love looking at the gorgeous work PRS does and I've come to like a lot of you folks. I'm 95% a lurker around here now, mostly looking at the pretty pictures of gorgeous guitars, but I'll chime in on something not all that PRS specific every now and then. Like this!

    I'm a mod at prsforums.com
    Kemper forum
    Home Recording

    I guess that's about it. I don't do FB much if at all. I've tried other forums, but somehow it was difficult to "get in" with the crowd.
    I suppose it just means that some people/places aren't really into my brand of buffoonery.:D

    As I sit here in a chair with my Silver Sky to the left, and my 305 to my right, I get what you're saying.
    I never really had it impact me because I never really thought about it much, or cared because I play standing up at practice and gigs. That being said, in a chair with axe on right thigh, the Silver Sky is better balanced.

    Just this one. I do not participate in any form of social media. Not really familiar with forum protocol and the contradiction of the "ignore" option. Seems to contradict the intent of the forum. Don't really understand. Some PM's gone unanswered and never got to sign the forum guitar or take it to Bourbon St for some improv jazz and blues. Figured I was on the ignore list. Nice to know I am not though. But its all good, I moved on from that and Bourbon St. . Lots of good people on this forum, that is why I hang around. I was raised on "If you cannot say something nice, dont say nothing at all." So I probably said to much on that. Was not trying to be negative. I enjoy the banter on this forum and love PRS! I like this thread. Thank you 11 top, you're a good dude.

    It's not even a balance thing as much as a reach thing for me. I think the standard PRS leg cut is so far forward so there wouldn't be a balance issue and that works, for me at least. But it just makes access to the upper frets and a comfortable picking position a lot harder for me, requiring various methods to compensate, all of which work but none of which are comfortable. Bottom line, I kept finding myself putting the 594 back on the wall after 10-15 minutes and grabbing something else.

    I never had anything like this happen before either, which is why I didn't take it seriously enough when I first got the instrument. If I had, I probably would have returned it within the return period and saved myself a few hundred $$ (bought it used, but from GC, so could have still returned it). I played a Les Paul (which folks assure me has a similar issue) knockoff when I was about 20, but I was flexible, skinny as a rail, and pretty much always played standing then, so it was a complete non-issue. Now, at my age and with a bit more of a gut to reach around to those upper frets, it was ultimately a deal breaker. Sadly... It's an amazing guitar that I expected to have the rest of my life...

    And I failed to mention Old Farts With Guitars which was, of course, perfect for me. It was a lot of short lived fun but it seems to be on life support (a seemingly fitting metaphor).

    My big 3 are:
    Here
    TheHoosier.com (‘cause I’m a diehard IU sports fanatic)
    Facebook

    I’m fairly active on all three. And, to a much lesser extent, I belong to:
    LesPaul forum (I’m a big fan of Custom Shop M2Ms)
    GearPage (much less active than old days)
    Reverb.com
    Vintagerocker.com

    The reason I started this thread was to see what others were into. It’s been interesting! I may have check out that Corvette site, Matt3310.

    Bentridersonline - mostly to keep in touch with what is new
    AttackPoint - handy place to log my exercise and the record keeps me honest
    TGP - just enough so that I don’t look like a newbie if I want to sell something
    PRS forums - it’s kind of dying (like VR), but I have some old friends there

    Here and AttackPoint are the places I’m most likely to contribute to daily.
    I also post from time to time on Facebook and Instagram.

    TGP, VR, PRS forums, UGF, and Instagram. I forgot my passwords to a couple of those, or their not fun to look at on my iPhone. My porn and internet MacBook is on the fritz so... mostly just here and Insta...

    I mostly just troll the PRS threads on TGP, somebody has to keep them in line.
