So? How are you enjoying your new axe? Just like the PRS claim - they just fitSame here. After months of research I just purchased a 2020 Custom 24 Artist Series -- took some searching, but found exactly what I was looking for. This is my first PRS after being a Les Paul owner. Anxious for delivery this week.
Great choice, can't wait to see it!
Gotta put the pic on a hosting site like imgur or postimage etc. then you can paste the link in hereI'm remiss in answering sooner. I've tried to insert a picture here, but it won't allow me. Oh well. I like it so much that I'm in early discussions about having a Private Stock version built. I love my '92 Les Paul, but within 10 minutes of playing this PRS, I was a convert.

I'm going to second the SE Hollowbody Piezo as a guitar for you. I had a black spruce top hollowbody for two weeks, and didn't like the sound. I'm an old archtop guy. I got the Piezo and it does everything I could possibly want a thin hollowbody to do. I have my big jazzboxes down, and the SE piezo has a startling amount of sustain with good acoustic tone on piezo. It's the missing piece in the hollow equation in my lineup. And they'll start trickling onto the used market very soon. Play one.I'm curious to read the article but just way too tired today. I just joined, don't even own a PRS (yet)... but to me, PRS guitars are some of the most beautiful things in the world. The epitome of functional artwork - even if I don't have the chops to justify one, I'd buy a McCarty HB out of appreciation and admiration if I could afford one. Maybe in a couple more years. And we haven't even begun to talk about tone, resonance, sustain, tuning stability, neck shape, balance, etc etc etc.
I played a HB II for like 10 minutes once. It was like meeting your soulmate then finding out she's married. I'll never forget that feeling - the weight, the vibration, the woody tone. Total perfection.
What a sappy first post, lol! I'm happy to be here and glad more people are becoming aware of what a PRS is. As an engineer, former finish carpenter, and musician I've been lurking for a very long time.
I played a used SE Hollowbody Standard the other day. The guitar looks wise wasn’t super inspiring, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the feeling I got when I played it. Idk why but I wasn’t expecting that.
A used SE HB Piezo would be great. I don’t love the stock pups so that’s another expense on top of a used guitar. But I did just buy 57/08’s for a kit guitar I’m building.... =D
I think a PRS of some sort is in the near future.
