    Why? Physical violence between two guitar players is about as funny a thing as there is to see.


    Especially if they use their guitars to play El Kabong

    I've just found out, it's not weight relieved. They lied to me. Shame, I was going to buy one but they're too heavy.

    Are you relieved that it's not weight relieved or not relieved that it's not weight relieved? [scared]

    I read an article where the guy was saying that it wasn't weight relieved but it was light and that was due to them using lighter mahogany and a thinner maple cap. So, it kind of IS weight relieved, just not chambered. So, with less mass and less density, does it have the same sound, sustain and tone? The world may never know.

    Ya know what, I've come in here multiple times over the years excited about one guitar over another, and it wasn't always Gibson, and sometimes it was, but that's irrelevant, we are all guitar players, and I could care less if someone who preferred Fender or Rickenbacker or what ever came in here and sang that particular guitars praises and bashed Gibson.

    That's their personal opinion, all guitars are capable of moving a particular person in one way or another, as long as their jammin' and making music and lovin' it...who cares what their current preference is.

    I currently am lovin' my PRS 594, some day I might find a Strat or Ric, or even a Les Paul that appeals to me and feels and sounds good, point is everyone who is a guitar player should be welcome here not just Gibson lovers.

    You guy's hate on people too often and too easily, no wonder there's so much violence and bad crap going on in the world, kids today just want to criticize and hate.
    Whatever man, I admit I almost got sucked up into the hate and anger, but I'm stopping myself.

    You guy's go on and say what you want, I'm out of it......Later.

    Not to continue with the necro equine battery but you (Bluesy) kind of started this thread and beating up on people and now resorted to real life threats? Not good, man. As John Mellencamp once sang, "Forget about all that macho **** and learn how to play guitar. Play guitar."

    That's what it's really all about, right?

    I'm not going to sit here and argue with you, in fact right now I am currently both pissed and saddened to find out that PRS has done chambering and weight relieving to their guitars.

    I currently have a call into PRS right now and I'm waiting for them to get back to me, and when they do I will be asking if the PRS 594 is weight relieved, if he tells me it is then my PRS will returned tonight.

    I want a SOLID BODY guitar....DAMN IT....well I won't freak out just yet until I talk to the PRS rep, but I will tell you guy's what he says.

    What I do know is the guitar does feel very light for the amount of thickness it has, I'm hoping that's just the body carve and not weight relief, but I'll get to the bottom of it soon.

    So, let me get this straight. You have a guitar you love and you're praising it in at least two forums, its quality and sound and EVERYTHING about the guitar is awesome and blows away Gibsons and Les Pauls in particular. But, if it's weight relieved, you hate it and it's going back? If you couldn't tell before, does it really matter? Maybe to you it matters but can you really tell the difference? I don't recall anything about the 594 being weight relieved, FYI, but what if it is? Just play it and love it for years and don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff. [biggrin]

    I'm (Sort of) amazed, there have been 150 posts, on this?!! PRS makes great guitars, and Gibson makes great guitars.
    What one chooses, is up to them. No "justification," or denigration, needed! [tongue] IMHO, as always.


    <sarcasm> So now you're knocking Fender... [tongue] </sarcasm>

    Kidding! I'm enjoying reading and learning in the midst of all the other trolling and flaming and troll feeding and baiting. But, in the process, I did go out and try some different guitars so it was worth wading through most of the BS just to learn more about PRS and play a few. I've always loved learning and I've mostly been playing and not really learning about the different guitars and amps. I knew what worked well for me for a long time. People have such a wide range of knowledge, experience, opinions and facts. I'm enjoying time here.
