Those what? These are Private Stock customs not sig models.
Those are awesome!
Points for Paul
Dustie's is a dream guitar - wow! Anyone want to throw a ballpark PRS PS 7-string price? (not the ebay flipper's rates)
These guitars are hot sex Mike ! ! !
Hey Darren, I thought you were perma-banned from posting anything about, regarding or surrounding PRS Guitars after your NAMM shenanigans.
I don't know what you're talking about
Glad to see PRS isn't afraid to build some 7's now and then, as I feel like I very rarely see any, but maybe that's just me.
Oh how I wish I could buy custom shop guitars.
a PRS 7s with a PS top,,what a dream guitar really,
anyone knows how much would be the price of a PS build for a 7s?
I'm not certain but I'm sure I've heard the $10k+ figure floating around over the years. A PRS expert will have to chime in though.
Wish there was more pictures floating around of Dustie's 7 string PS. I really dig the color he chose
That's a stock Private Stock finish called Northern Lights. There are TONS of examples of it if you do a google image search for it (only difference with his is that it is a satin finish instead of clear gloss finish):
I think Brian's Guitars was the first one to use it, not sure if he had input into the creation of it or if it was all the PS team, but it's a neat finish to be sure. Sadly it's also becoming one of those finishes that has been done so many times it almost looks boring sometimes.
Gonna go against the grain here and say that the one with the FR looks pretty bad...
I've read elsewhere that Paul Reed Smith doesn't like FR trems and to be honest I don't blame him - I don't think they suit his guitars at all. Should just make a 7-string version of the normal PRS trem.
It is funny as for the longest time Paul had always said that, and felt his tremolo system was superior for tone, playability etc. The other day I was searching for PRS CU24 Floyd vids on YT and came across one of him discussing the model when it came out and he basically went the other way talking up how cool they were, how stable the tuning was and you could do anything to a floyd etc. I wouldn't say he backpedaled on his stance as I'm sure he still feels the PRS trem is the better sounding of the two, but it was interesting to see how he went from being fairly anti-Floyd to putting out a model to cater to the metal crowd or folks looking for a locking tremolo on a PRS.
That is jaw dropping beautiful.
I wouldn't say it looks bad, but black FRs always look cheap to me, so I agree to a point.
It was a PS though, so the guy with the cash gets to choose.
I thought it was his signature model since it looks almost exactly like it.
Enough for me to offer them a kidney instead. Luckily for me they take organs as payment .
He doesn't like them but like Matt said when he played the Waring prototype at an event in CT (Brians guitars) he was seriously blown away with the guitar and how amazing it was and I dont blame him, it was great and sounded phenomenal. I still hate floyds personally but I would buy one and block the .... out of it if it meant having a core 7 string.
They do make a 7 string version of the PRS trem - its available on a Private Stock guitars.
These are artist built private stocks based on their 6 string signature models so you're both right to some degree.
Its being shipped so as soon as he gets it I'll grab more.
