    How would it fit into your already-too-big collection of guitars?

    I don't understand the question...



    What would it offer that you don't already have?
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

            Did you actually try out any of the sub-$600 Gibson's??? You didn't miss anything. They felt, and sounded like CRAP! imho




            That's because you're stupid.

                I simply meant to exemplify the point that I, nor most other members of this forum, could ever have an already-too-big collection of guitars



                However, since you extended the scope of the question, allow me to elaborate...



                I love the body styles of the PRS SE and the ESP MH and F series... they all have a wide range of finishes available as well. While the PRS pups would not give me a much different sound than what I have now, I do eventually want something with an EMG 81/85 combo... Or perhaps I could just throw some different pups in the PRS... but then we get past that $600 cap...

                    [QUOTE=Sheraton;47401612]I was looking at the $500-$600 Gibsons and was very underwhelmed by the fit and finish on every one that I picked up. So I picked up this used off of craigslist for $250.







                    To answer your question about where it fits and what it adds? I already have a Strat and a 335 type (Sheraton). This fills the gap in between. I've wanted a P90 guitar for a long time. My first electric was a 65 Gibson SG Jr. and I've wanted that sound back in my arsenal for a while. That's why I was looking at the cheap Gibsons, but after looking at the fit and finish they were just too rough for me. Plus, this PRS is light, balances well and is a dream to play. The fit and finish is great. At this price it isn't a guitar that I need to baby so I can leave it out, pick it up whenever, take it with me on trips, play it on the couch, whatever.

                            I'd grab one of these $599 Gibsons that are still on sale if you don't have them. http://www.samash.com/opencms/opencm...s/gibson-deals

                            I'm tempted by the Firebird Studio, but I already have the '70s Trib SG with those mini-hums and a Firebird V. Most of the rest of that stuff, I do have
                            A '57 Classic, MIJ from USA parts.
                            HCEG Existentialism: I buy guitars, therefore, I am.
                            Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                            I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                                OT: I'm about to trade my 70's Tribute LP for a Joe Strummer Tele. Having spent $500 on the Gibson, I think it's an equitable trade, possibly leaning slightly in my favor



                                If I didn't just score a Goldtop Deluxe, there'd be no way I'd be letting the Tribute go, however...
