  • Am I Crazy

    Yesterday I went to the GC that's close to my daughters house.
    I brought along my 8502 Tele and ES339 with the intention of trading for one of the closeout PRS.

    I played all of them and a used McArty.
    I like the used one best, a "92" McArty.
    The Mira was second, and the rest I just couldn't jive with.
    At least not enough to trade what I brought.

    I was talking to a friend who works there and told him that I like my PRS SE Custom better.
    I like the tone that comes out of these pickups and the playability is great.
    Just very comfortable.
    Stays in tune great as well.

    How could I like a $500.00 guitar better than a $2000.00 one?
    I son't know, but I do.

        If it's right, it's right. If not, not.

          1. no company will ever send GC the absolute best examples. if you want a PRS, buy from a shop like Wilcutt Guitars, who specializes in high end equipment and won't accept a dud.

          2. my 50s Classic Tele beats the pants off of every MIA Fender i've ever played.

          like many other things in life, better specs give you a better chance, but it really comes down to the individual guitar.
          There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

            Can't stand the SEs personally. No mojo, all they do is sound and play totally consistent night after night, stay in tune, have some of the clearest pickups and are light and comfortable. Here are my three:

                          The Mira and McCarty are also my favorite PRSi. however, i have been getting more and more fond of the CE 22 and CU 22 i've played a couple times at Guitar Center and Maple Street Guitars, respectively.

                          But yeah, among the others, for me the Mira and McCarty are just pumped with mojo.

                            It happens. I broke my #1 Epi G400 a few days before my first gig. I had to use my bandmate's Gibby SG Standard. It was a nice guitar, but I couldn't bond with it. That being said, I recently fell in love with a SG Classic at my local guitar center. If everything goes well, it will be my next gutar.
