    I've been playing for about 13 years now, also had a period where I flipped guitars(side income), so I've probably gone through 500-600 high-end guitars. These days I'm just playing, currently playing a very cheap partscaster strat.

    (Kinda ironic...going from 5k-20k boutique and vintage axes, to settling down with a 250$ homebrew. Makes me wonder If I'll ever make a switch from bespoke to JAB suits)

    Yep it's a custom 24. Price is really not that bad either (~$2500)

    Totally didn't know this thread existed, awesome :slayer:

    I'm a total pedal noob despite having played guitar for years :embar: Any recommendations on essentials? Other than a tuner, of course. I picked up a TC Electronics looper, a Crybaby Wah, and a Line 6 DL4 the other day as my first three pedals ever and I didn't realize how much thought you have to put into running them from the guitar to the amp!

    I bought a lovely Charcoal Burst Custom 24 used. It had a few dings and scratches on it, but was a good price for what it was and makes me less precious about it. The great things about the PRS I've tried are the playability and sustain, build quality is up there. I love the contours of the carved top, but still prefer the feel of the rounded curves of my Strats, though the new S2 range may fit in the spot right between utility and quality instrument owning the PRS badge. Pickups are useful, but a little too hot for my liking (59/09). May swap to lower output stuff for better response and classic sounds. Oh, Piobaire, I still keep going back to my Strat (decent Chinese made Squier that I've upgraded over time), so definitely get a Strat!


    I'm surprised no one's mentioned this yet: Isn't it "TONE IS ALL IN THE FINGERS"? [​IMG]

    I know most of our resident guitar guys are going to roll their eyes, but has anyone had experience with hooking a guitar up to a Kaoss Pad a la Nels Cline?

    a video of my air conditioner is probably more accurate at replicating what i'm trying to play.

    All I need is a sweet fuzz pedal and a delay.
