I ordered a PRS.

Well after playing a whole bunch of them over the last 6 months I finally decided to pull the trigger. I'm getting a 25th Anniversary Custom 24 with a 10 Top in Smoked Amber. Now the waiting game begins (1-2 months). I'm very excited. Here's a picture of one...

Thanks Neo! I did ask about the quilt top and it isn't an option for the 25th Anniversary Custom 24. I don't know if they're available in other models though. I'm getting the wide thin neck. Also, I took Are Nine's advice. It comes with 57/08 pickups.

Very cool, congrats! What made you go with an anniversary model?

Quilt tops are available on other models. Scroll down around eight pictures. http://www.theguitarshop.ca/

Did you play any with 57/08 pickups, or are you just going in my word? They're fantastic, I love how they sound...but the problem is I also love how 59/09s sound. I take it you want a mellower tone?

I've not tried the 57/08 or the 59/09 pickups in any PRS.

 

I did take the pickup covers off of my Custom 22 (with Dragon II pickups) and I found that the neck pickup became a bit warmer and the bridge slightly sharper.

 

I'm happy with the tone of both and actually don't have any desire to change them --- at least so far. [thumbup]

 

Here's a video showing the tone of it through a Peavey Classic 50 after I put new tubes in it (gotta sit through some Byrdland tone for a few minutes though): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3XPY1VFL_g

I got the Anniversary model because it was only $250 more. I figured it was worth it. Quilt tops are certainly beautiful (someday!). I didn't get a chance to play the 57/08 pickups but I trust your judgment! Yes I want a mellower tone because I've got the Sonex for that screaming tone.

 

The guitar in that picture has a 5-way switch - will yours' date=' too? I don't believe you don't get push/pulls.[/quote']

 

That's right. I didn't have an option for the push/pulls. I've played both and I kinda like the 5-way switch.

 

I'm already getting antsy and it's only been a few days. But playing my others guitars helps. This is the first one I've had to wait for. How do you guys who order guitars do it???

I'm sure your next PRS will have them...unless it's a 513. :-
