    I've been lurking around here for a while so I figured it was about time to make my first post.
    I got this PRS out of a trade not too long ago. Traded my Jackson RR3 and BC Rich SOB (both of which I got at less than half price:fawk:and never really played anymore) and I got this lovely thing here plus some cash, but anyways...
    I liberated this guy from a bad home, they were playing it through a small crate practice amp:wallbash: but I'm biased there so take no offense, or do, that's up to you gentlemen.
    I've only been playing this thing for about a week (there's just never enough time but it plays just wonderfully. The only problem that I have with it is the bridge pickup, the guy put a Seymour Duncan Dime Bucker in it which doesn't work well with this guitar in my opinion. But that's not that big of a deal, just me finding something to complain about.

    Some specs:
    Mahogany body
    Flamed maple top
    Mahogany neck
    Set net
    22 frets
    25 inch scale
    Three way switch
    Total awesomeness:bowdown:

    Man, I've been trying to get my hands on a White SE Singlecut haha. Beautiful guitars.

    Good deal on the Custom! I love the Dimebucker.... But I wouldn't go as far as to put one
    in a PRS lmfao.

    :agreed:
    I would love to have one of those!
    I may have to look into that. I'm glad someone suggested something interesting rather than a dimarzio or duncan, not saying that their bad, just nice to see something else now and then

    Duncan and DiMarzio are nice, nothing wrong with them - but I, personally, feel that I get more interesting textures out of things like Bareknuckles and PRSi pickups. Its hard to explain but its almost like I get more of the woods tonal character out of them.

    I've heard nothing but good things about Bareknuckles. But yeah, I get what you mean, I like to hear the differences in the woods of my guitars.

    Haha I'll be sure to do that :) Probably won't be for some time though because I have other priorities, gear-wise anyways
