    You can find some used old Core models on Reverb from $1,200 - 2,000. PRS makes some nice versatile pickups but if you want a great metal pickups, get the Seymoure Duncan Mark Holcomb.

    It's worth noting that all the hardware on a 2016 PRS is going to be better built than the years before it. That's one thing people don't always mention about the company - they are constantly working to improve the little things, not just the big things. Between hardware upgrades and their V12 finish, they have made some great changes in recent years.

    Honestly find something that speaks to you and rock that. I play an '06 Custom 22 and a '16 S2 singlecut satin and they're both a blast.

    Really good point. When I traded for my CU24, they had a 2002 CU22 10-top, but the new hardware and pickups on mine made the decision really easy. I still think the older ones are great values, but the ones from about 2012 and newer have been really exceptional. I love my 2007 HBII just as much as my 2013 CU24, but the new hardware is especially nice on the 2013.

    Like others said, you can't go wrong with a prs.

    Singlecut a, custom 24, 22, ces can pull off a metal axe just fine.

    Used you can get a nice one for your price point. I got my first prs a 93 ce for less than 1k.

    Amazing.

    I play in a progressive Thrash band, and I'm going to be getting an SE Custom 24 next year.

    They literally can do just about anything you want them to, which is very beneficial because I like to get a variety of tones out of my guitars. I like the idea of being able to show up to whatever gig, and use one guitar the whole entire set, for any song. PRS guitars are very good at achieving those things, more so than most other brands.

    I say bite the bullet and go for one. I'm stoked to get mine.

    Anything with the PRS “Pattern Thin” neck is amazing. I love that shape. After that it’s all specs/aethetics.

    Try some models out and buy whatever feels good. You can always swap pickups/etc.
