I was always a fan of PRS guitars; when I was playing back in the 90's, they were always (price wise) out of reach. I saw my first couple in Kosmic music, and was taken my the shape and style of the guitar, could never afford one at the time ... fast forward to the 10's and PRS bought out the SE range, which were mostly affordable, due to moves in jobs, etc, so I finally bought a PRS in January 2011 (click pic for unboxing):
Which I then modded to have an internal Roland pickup system in September of that same year (click pic for installation story):
Then I realised I could afford the guitar I'd lusted after all those years ago, so bought a PRS CE (the early model) from eBay USA, I watched it for a while (months!) an the seller couldn't sell it, not sure why, it might be because everyone wants the 'tiger stripes' of a PRS, but I actually prefer the solid colours; anyway, the Aussie dollar was riding high against the US greenback, so finally bit the bullet, paid a bit for import taxes (anything over $au1k attracts a processing fee + 10% of value) and now own this beauty (the pic is after the clean up):
Even further down the track (last year), I bought a SAS (Swamp Ash Special) in green:
And I see there is another Red PRS Electric on Reverb at the moment .... although it's a bit beat up .... hmmmm .....
