In the late 90s, early 2000s, PRS guitars were the essential tool in the alternative rock & Nu-Metal scene. Hooked up to Mesa Dual/Triple R's for that modern, loud and crunchy tone. But all of a sudden most of these artists stopped using them, and you rarely see a PRS guitar in the same spectrum anymore. Sure we still have some players like Mark Tremonti, Clint Lowery from Sevendust, Mark Holcomb from Periphery, Zach Myers from Shinedown to name a few. But during this era, you could almost expect that everybody was playing a PRS just by the sound of the music. And from what I understand, PRS are striving for more vintage sounding pickups these days, only the Mark Holcomb and Mark Tremonti models offers those hotter ones, and Holcombs's guitar comes with Seymour Duncans for that matter. What about HFS's? I know they are still for sale but why not keep them with a classic Custom 22 & 24? And same goes for the SC250 which is completely gone. What exactly did happend here? Was it just some sort of hype train and everybody happend to switch simultaneously? For what reason? If the guitars did their job, why the change?
