    Tax season was kind to me this year so I picked up a super limited piece from back in 2006 :cool:

    Specs then pics:
    -Semi-hollow mahogany body with 10 top
    -Mahogany neck
    -Brazilian rosewood fingerboard
    -25” scale length
    -PRS #7 Treble and PRS #7 Bass pickups (Probably gonna swap a tremonti bridge in)

    So I'm not even sure what to say about this thing or the deal I got on it. As you can see in that last picture I still have my SC245 that I got 4 or so years ago because that is truly a phenomenal guitar and this one is no different. Something about these guitars just makes them so easy to play and so perfect for me. Just top notch craftsmanship from PRS always as expected. I'm gonna probably put the Tremonti bridge pup in this one just like my SC245 as well because that's one of my favorite pickups and I think it'll go great with my incoming triple rec to pretend to be Mr. Tremonti since I cant afford his actual sig :lol: This is my Fauxmonti now.

    Same here.

    Expecting PRS Beauty. Got lots of no entry signs.

    A painful anticlimax to experience on a Friday afternoon.

    Hmm Google Photos has worked for me every time before.

    Re-uploaded them to photobucket so hopefully they work now??

    Those are a couple of beauties! I had a 245 years ago and it was really, really nice!

    Beautiful! GAS'ing hard for a 245, despite just picking up an 01' CU24 10 top. I want that 24.5" scale for the fat tones.

    Literally the guitar I modelled a build after save for the braz board.

    Nice score :yesway:. I want a farm of singlecuts some day - my S2 satin continues to keep up with our performances.

    Beautiful guitar, thinking I might need to get me a single cut. Mastodon has me jonesing for a les paul but I'd probably be more comfortable with one of these

    Regardless, love that deep blue!

    Thanks everyone! Between getting this and literally revamping my entire rig this month has been very gear heavy so I'm glad you guys like it :agreed:


    Good taste :cool:

    The S2's really are great value as well. I played a semi hollow S2 Mira in a shop one day and I didn't wanna put it down :lol:

    Actually almost picked up one of the S2 singlecuts a little while ago too. I'm sure I will at some point.

    Thank you!

    I definitely feel like the gold is a nice contrast to the blue.
