PRS GAS PT. 2

So The Prs 513 gave me a SERIOUS hardon, but the price tag made me limp faster than you can say Yngwie Likes Dounuts!

So here is what Im looking at now.....





This model is $1750.00 Shipped. I want one with the Trem tho.

Wow, I'm not usually a fan of les paul shaped guitars, but that is hot

Shame about the price though.

The finish just looks cheap to me, plus for that kind of money I'd like to be able to set my intonation.

That's affordable for a PRS, and I actually kind of dig the weathered finish - maybe in a different color...?

However, by and large I just haven't really gotten that into PRS's. I'd have a very hard time dropping that sort of cash on a guitar that, at best, would be a backup for my Strat.

I played my friend's PRS and I loved it. I've also played a few more at a local music store in the past. I've always liked them but they're too pricey.

That one is pretty nice although I prefer the double cut instead of the single cut.

Been throwing around the idea of getting one myself, like that one. Though I think I might try an SE first and see if I like it. The PRS dealers around me never have any singles in stock, and I don't want to lay down the cash for a used one when I've never played one.

You could do that, but remember the SEs are all flat tops wheras the real ones are carved tops so it'll feel a bit different.

I like the PRS singlecut guitars, one of my favorites that they make. I played a Singlecut trem before too... VERY nice guitars! Still think PRS guitars (USA made anyways) are a bit pricey, but they are good guitars to be sure.

PRS can look nice and sound good, but I'd really try to withstand the GAS because they're really not very good values. Honestly you can get a used Carvin for $400 that would likely blow away any $2000 PRS and is just higher quality.

I believe the singlecuts have a slight carve to them. Not completely carved, but slightly at least. I've played Les Pauls most of my years, so I'm pretty comfortable on carved tops. And have played many flat top guitars, so I'm relatively comfortable on them too.

The SE Singlecut and Tremonti SE models have a slight "arch" to the top, but they're not fully carved.

I'd take any (or all) of these:



The SE Standard is available with either the stop tail or the trem. I'd like to see the Tremonti SE's control layout on the SE Singlecut's tobacco burst finish... or vice versa.

For a fraction of the cost of a USA PRS, these are really good, playable, guilt-free guitars.

I have the one in the middle and the one on the right too, same exact finishes too! The SE line is great for the price IMO.

much better price, although still a tad high. there are better values out there, but if money isn't an issue i would say to go for it. i really liked the inlays on the 513 though.

Im just thinking of my next guitar. I want an LPish type guitar. And Ive already done the Gibby thing. And Ive never played a PRS I didnt like. But then again Id rather not spend $4000 on 1 guitar

Actually, let me ammend this - I've played a few used PRS's that were kind of cool, but nothing that made me want to drop the $1300 or so it'd have cost me to take one home.

Nick1, if you're looking for a Gibson vibe on a budget, check out a few Schecters - seriously, even ignoring the price I'd take my Blackjack over my roommate's Gibson Les Paul Studio, and I LIKE his LP.

If you don't want a 7, play a few of their C-1's. Great guitars for the money.

If you want the vintage LP vibe, get the new ESP potbelly, they have SD Alnico-2 Pros in them.

Actually, if you want the vintage LP vibe, get a Heritage LP. They're made in the same factory, with the same tools, by many of the same people, as the original ones.

Ah yeah those too, I suggested the potbelly because it has Alnico 2s in it and would destory everything in its price range, the Heritages use the Seth Lovers which are also Alnico 2s, but they're a lot more than the the potbelly, lol.

Nah, you suggested the Potbelly because you love ESP.
