I have a sc245, and a black slate custom 24 made this year. Love them both, esp the cu24. It's amazingly light. Both are very well made and the wood looks spectacular.

I'm GASsing for a PRS so bad! Every time I see photos of them it just makes it worse.
I'm seriously considering making the Tremonti model my big purchase for this year. Last year I was about to pull the trigger on one, but I bought my Mesa Roadster and cab instead. This year, I need to make it happen!

On a somewhat related topic, I just discovered Phil Sgrosso's custom silverburst Torero for the first time. Good stuff

I have played a gorgeous quilted blue custom 24 10-top once. The neck was great, playability superb, the price truly terrifying.

I instantly fell in love with the thing sitting down, but the position of the bridge didn't do it for me when standing. Too far across in front of the body. Also, for heavy stuff, I found the pickups to be muddy. and the price........... probably not helped by the exchange rate at the time, but I could have bought a reasonable car or had a house deposit for the asking price.....

I think they are beautiful instruments, the level of finish was amazing, but the sound and the ergonomics got me. I guess I am more of a super-strat type of guy. Never fell in love with Les Pauls either, for mostly the same reason. That said, several years later I ended up buying an ibby 335 knock off - AS103NT, which in my mind does the same job as the PRS for about 1/5 the price. Yes it is made in china, but I believe the neck is made in the Japan custom shop - the finish on the thing could easily stand proud next to a PRS, except for a few very slight blemishes where the neck joins the body. The flamed maple is glorious and the stock ibby custom pickups are really very good.

I have yet to buy one, but they are seriously nice guitars. The wide-thin neck is the second most comfortable neck I've ever played on (first goes to my DC727. The tung-oil finish is pure s3xx).

I feel about them, though, the same way I feel about Gibson and Fender: You're paying more for the name than the materials/quality. That being said, I'd put them above Fender/Gibson, and right after the Gibson Custom Shop (at least on the PRS production models) in terms of quality. You will rarely find a hacked-up POS PRS. Even their SE line is great value for the money.

Their finishes are on the same level as Carvin and higher-end Gibsons, IMO. One thing that puts them over the edge is the variety of choices. Good luck buying a Carvin in that cool Demin Blue color (my personal favorite PRS finish.)

I kind of dissagree. I have 4 PRSi and I can tell you right off the bat that they are leaps and bounds ahead of my gibson and american fender that I had as far as materials. Try the knock test on any guitar and see how pure the piece of wood is to ring as nice as a PRSi (5:16 in the video below)

"The difference between a $100 guitar and a $2000 guitar is the materials."

i find the knock test to be a gimmick more than anything else.
if a wood wasn't dry, it would warp and screw up the guitar later on.
i'm sure gibson, fender, jackson, carvin, dean etc would have their woods doing the exact same but they dont consider it as a selling point as thats what dry woods do.

yes, PRS does use rosewood on some of their necks, something i dont see gibson or others doing too often, if at all (i've seen a few fenders with em though. but VERY rare).

and at the same time, the difference between 100 to 2000 dollar guitar according to paul only accounts for US building. it doesn't take into consideration the wages that are paid over seas, which allow guitars to be so much cheaper. not saying they 100 dollar one is better in any way, shape or form. but there is FAR more than material that makes USA guitars far more expensive than say, jap made ibanez, Navigators, ESP, Jackson, Dean, Tokai etc...grab the EXACT same stuff and tell japan(or others) and USA to make them the exact same way. the USA will come head and shoulders above in terms of final cost of the guitar per unit.

another factor of what makes an expensive guitar more expensive is QC. PRS i think is the industry leader at the moment with QC (i could be wrong). and QC has nothing really to do with material(other than picking a piece that doesn't have a knot in it), but more to do man hours going in. so Paul is making it out to be that material is the only thing that makes an expensive guitar more expensive. (again, an expensive guitar doesn't always mean its a better guitar, but advertisement would make it seem that way, and people buy into that hype)

I've owned 3 or 4 PRS (Custom 24, McCarty). I sold them all, but I believe EVERY guitarist should own one ONCE. Get it, learn what makes it great then sell it for a profit!

I found that having so much money tied up in one instrument to be the biggest problem with them... Playing them out can be fraught with stress; critics, thieves and clumsy people will set PRS owners on to a whole new level of rage.


I did make the effort to try the Torrero, travelling to Guitar village (UK PRS specialist) and also played the Cradle of filth PRS. The old custom 24 is much better IMO.

Whether its to prove how they dry the instruments a certain way or not, I still look at it as a check for the purity of the wood. Several of my high end guitars do not resonate nearly as good as my PRSi.

Had a PRS CE22 for around 5 years or so, and I've played several others in shops and what not. Honestly? Really nice looking guitars, the bird inlays have always been a big part of it for me, but after getting my Daemoness custom and playing some other sweet guitars, I've kind of started to sway away from the PRS fanboy-ism. They're nice guitars, but too expensive, imo. Depends what your playing style is also, but I've found that the 3 biggest bugbears for my CE22 are the weight of the body, I'd much rather have a nice light ash body, also the shape of the neck, and the lack of cutaway for arm resting.

You're comparing apples to oranges though. Of course I could say "I prefer my Thorns and my Oni to my PRS CE-22!" but they're not even in the same category/market. Hand-built guitars vs production style guitars should typically be a no-brainer if the luthier is skilled. That being said, I have a CE-22 and have no issues with it if I take it for what it is. Also, I can buy a CE-22 for somewhere between 900-1500ish (higher end for something that was a factory custom-build/one-off like mine was) depending on condition and features. You buy your Daemoness for that much?
