      Dude, you just proved my point ten fold. its not that PRS are Production guitars its the fact that they are production guitars at Handmade prices. And prs are not what they used to be by a long shot. Any guitar that costs $3000.00 and comes with a bridge that you cant even intonate is blasphemy. Ten tops of today are the wood they use to take home to make a fire with. Mcarty's using ****************y Kluson style tuners? A heel that i could fit my dinner on? and the cost for the options on thier guitars is just insane. But you asked what is a better quality production guitar?

      Well if price is no object that is kind of hard to compete with

      But if you wanted a realistic price for your production guitar i would say just about every brand name production guitar prs is left in the dust by guitars with solid wood, tone pros bridges, grover tuners, seymour duncan pickups, and overseas manufacturers are now using thicker tops rather than veneers

      PRS= good guitar

      Schecter= good guitar


      PRS vs. what you get for the money = Bull****************

      Schecter = hell of a lot for very little.

      and no i dont play schecter, nor would i buy an import guitar.

      i play warrior guitars. which eat prs and its lunch.


      You can feel as you want but I've never played a Schecter that even comes close to comparing to any of my PRS guitars. Sorry.
      I realize there a lot of lesser experienced players here that really cant tell the difference in quality, woods, tone etc..And thats fine. Those guys wont be able to appreciate why a PRS cost so much.
      And in their case thats fine, a Schecter will do nicely.
      Unfortunately for me I absolutely can tell a difference.

      PRS guitars are just as much handmade today as they were in the late 80s and early 90s. If you really did your research you would know this.
      It's just that they have 4 times the the employees working than they did in the begining.

      As far as Warriors goes, I've never played one. But looking at them they appear to be riding the coat tails of PRS.

      Maybe Bruce Bennett, who is the original designer and forum member could chime in with his experiences.
      I know he doesnt have a lot of good things to say about Warrior at this point in their career.

      Either way I've been playing PRS Guitars for 20 years and have more experience here with them than most of the forum members here have been playing.

      Basically nothing you will say to me will ever change my mind.
      Only my experiences will change my mind. So far PRS has been outstanding for me as a player.

        Rickenbacker.

        Remember though, you're asking about "quality". I'm not necessarily talking about sound or tone, as that's subjective. Construction wise, Rickenbacker, I think, is one of the only bigger name companies that hasn't skimped or sold out.

          Maybe, but I recently read on a Ric forum how lately theyre hosing people on warranty claims.
          Essentially what I read sounds like nothing is honored under warranty no matter what.

          But thats second hand info..I dont own one and never have so I really cant say. I've played a few and they seem nice enough.

Not my problem, its yours.

                hmmm, let me think here..... bolt on ce versus set neck custom 22 and a mcarty. why dont you just compare a ****************ing strat with a les paul.

                  I paid $1700 cash for mine and it's the most versatile and toneful guitar i've ever played or owned. I've played a bunch of Schecters that have Duncans and with everything stock it eats them for lunch. A Les Paul Standard costs more.
                  My Singlecut has never had an intonation problem. Even when i went from 9s to 10s.
                  Maybe i got 2 of the better ones?



                  i have tried a standard. you people really need to get my point that its not that they are bad guitars. i dont feel prs are worth the amount they ask, thats it period. do i think they are bad guitars? no. Do i see any reason to spend $1700.00 dollars on a guitar with absolutley no options just because it says paul reed smith? hell no.

                  and im glad you have had good luck with your singlecut. i know many who havent. but have you ever put that puppy on a peterson strobe tuner? maybe your ear isnt the best tool for intonation

                    compared to the locking PRS tuners i think the mcarty tuners are a little lacking in quality factor. ive never liked kluson style tuners but thats just personal preference.

                      I agree that modern PRSi are among the finest quality production guitars made today. They are one of only three brands I would buy from anyone sight unseen, and PRS is one of them.

                      This talk about a big heel, the type of rosewood used, the tuners.....This is about features, none of this has jack to do with build quality. And modern PRS guitars are as good as they have ever been. The whole 'pre-XX year' crap is all just meant to stir up the market. This isn't like Norlin Gibson or CBS Fender - PRS is PRS and always has been.

                      And no, I don't own one nor do I plan to own one.

                            I didn't buy it because it said PRS. I bought it because it was built so solid and sounded amazing. I don't need "options" like inlays and pretty things on the top. I would've gladly paid $2400 for this guitar because of the tone. It's really mind blowing.

                                once again someone not getting my point. if prs lowered the price on their guitars i would have no problem with them. and i did do my research, ever heard of a duplicarver. prs at one point didnt use one. now they have many. woods over the years have got worse. I dont know where you get off thinking im just some punk kid who doesnt know **************** about guitars. Im not saying a diamond series schecter sounds as good or better than a prs im saying they are definitly a better buy than a prs simply because of cost to option ratio. If you want to believe that you are part of some elite musical force because you play overpriced guitars and feel you have to make excuses for why you play them and deny the facts thats fine. if i spent that much money on an inferior instrument i would do the same thing. And since bruce bennet didnt exactly leave warrior on good terms, i dont expect him to have many good things to say about the brand. and to top it all off if you cant see that prs is going the way of gibson, you obviously missed that they started offering imports. That my friend is always the beginning of the end.
