    Go for it! Nothing is perfect in life. Are you in a hot country? If you are have, it shipped the fastest way possible to avoid temperature change problems in transit. This is a real piece of art that I would play in a New York minute. Stay with us on the forum, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. We’re all big children with guitars.

    thanks for the insight! When your guitar was covered under warranty last summer, did PRS completely fix the issue? And has it returned or worsened?

    Thanks man. She is a beauty. Kudos to the dealer for picking it up on their check of the guitar. I kinda agree because I like things a bit perfect especially at this price point, and well it’s not everyday I’d get to buy this guitar. I’ve sorta waited 13 years since my first electric (SE singlecut) to buy this tremonti. Sad that all ain’t going as planned but I’d wait on the official word from what PRS says to decide what I’d do. Unfortunately I paid already hence she was about to be sent to me when they picked up the issue.

    Thanks man for the golden advice! I appreciate the encouragement to stay on the forum. I thought I may have been asking a bit too many questions but a guitar at this cost does kinda make you a bit paranoid. It’s like a child lol. Thank you. Hoping that they can either remedy the issue or that’s the final extent of it. ‍♂️

    Trinidad in the Caribbean. Temperatures outdoors get up to 35 Celsius. Indoors are usually around 17-24 Celsius (diurnal variation)

    Beautiful place, and that explains the English guitar shop. I think you might be the first Trinidadian to join, so triple welcome! Play so soca with your new axe, but see if you can mix it with metal.

    Hahahaha have you been?
    Actually I was going to just order a 10 top tremonti from Sweetwater in the USA, until I found “the one.” Aptly she happened to be located across the pond.

    No soca for me, only rock and blues.. hahah @irate.. this place is a fools paradise if you ask me!! LOL

    Edit: this place -Trinidad

    Thank you man! Hopefully all goes well. Would I have been better of buying a 2020 model fresh out the factory from say a big mover like Sweetwater? Idk if this kinda discrepancy is akin to smaller shops

    You read about problems from all sorts of vendors, occasionally. What separates the good from the bad is how they deal with it. Sounds like your dealer is conscientious and wants you to only have the best experience. Hard to beat that!

    The time stinks, but it’s a lot better than having it show up with a problem.

    UPDATE:
    Hey guys just a quick update. The wood library tremonti came back to the dealer from PRS UK/Europe. Whatever they had to do or asses lasted about 6 days +\- 2 days for shipping. All was sorted according to the dealer (Wildwire Guitars) and she is on her way to the Caribbean :):D

    BTW Leon at Wildwire is a real class of a guy, Answered all my questions when I was inquiring about the instrument two weeks back. Many email correspondences back an forth and a full on guitar photoshoot later, he told me he noted a very minor issue on the fret board edge that I may not notice but wanted to get it looked at by PRS which was under warranty as it’s brand new. After PRS UK/Europe sorted out the issue it’s back at Wildwire where it was packaged and shipped. I can hardly wait! I was about to add a nice amp into the package but seems you lovely chaps in the northern UK have cleaned out the stores! My Mesa Recotoverb would have to do for now until I get new GAS.
