My PRS Custom 22...

I'm sure some of you guys remember I said it was 1 of 5 custom builds for a PRS dealer here in Ontario.

A custom built Custom 22, how nice!! [biggrin]

 

Here are some pictures of all 5. What do you guys think? Looks wise, the one I bought and the gold one are equally my two favourites; closely followed by that purple one. Actually, the purple one is quite stunning!

 

All 5 have pretty crazy tops, though, I'm sure you'll agree.

Oh' date=' I don't know...

 

They're pretty and all, but I guarantee you I wouldn't be satisfied with the playability on any of them.[/quote']

 

How many PRS's have you played. Sorry I keep forgetting your vast experience with guitars. Your not even

dry behind the ears. They all look great and I'll bet they all play great. I haven't heard AreNine complain about

any of his. You just post to get your count up what a waste.

Not everyone enjoys using the same instruments. That why there are different brands' date=' different models, etc.. I've tried a few PRS's and, although it may not be fair for me to judge based solely on first impressions and in-store experiences, I haven't played one that I liked enough to really want. That's all there is to it. They're awfully pretty, and they're good enough for Are Nine, so there's nothing wrong with them at all. Besides, Alex Lifeson likes them, Carlos Santana likes them, Buddy Guy likes them, Slick Aguilar likes them, and so on. When I find one [i']I[/i] want to buy, I'll let you know.

But did you have to show me these while I'm waiting for my PRS to come in???

Actually' date=' yes. You're the main reason I made this thread...and you're welcome!! [biggrin

 

XDemonknight, I know what you mean. I've played several in the stores that did absolutely nothing for me but I've also played more Gibson Les Pauls that I didn't like than ones that I liked. IMO, a lot of Gibson LPs play like complete crap...and I love LPs.

 

I've played 2 these 5 PRSi - the gold one being the other - and they're both incredible. I know who owns that gold one and if he sells it, I'll probably buy it. I have 3 PRSi and 10 Gibsons. If it really came down to it (knock on wood), I'd sell 1/2 my Gibsons before I sold one PRS.

Don't forget Jimmy Page...

 

they're almost too much to look at.

+1. When I had the two of them side by side' date=' I almost creamed my pants.

 

Ba sshole, I wish you hadn't of wrote that. I hate Nickelback as much as the next guy. [biggrin

Did you see the blue quilt they had in there that was signed by Dweezil Zappa on the back? Can't recall what model it was but it sure looked nice.

 

They had (maybe still do have) a blue CU22 that was, IIRC, a 20th anniversary model. I didn't like it during my first visit there but the second time I took a good look at it. Didn't need a second CU22 though. [thumbup]
