I went to guitar center and I saw this guitar and decided to try it out. I started playling "samba pa ti" it sounded so peacefull so beautifal and pleasant it is the perfect instrument the feel is wonder and it is so smooth, if you have the money for this kind of thing go for it you will not regret it one bit.
This guitar is one of the greatest. Its tone is unbelievable and it didn't even come with any custom PRS pickups. The one i have used came with Seymour Duncans, I would not recommend keeping them on this monster of a guitar. The best recommendation I could give is using PRS Dragon series pickups.The quality of this beast is unmatched. Its blueprint hasn't been changed since 1980, yet this is the best looking PRS I've ever played. The wood and inlays on it is beautiful. The guitar could be a little less but that is NOTHING to complain about. This guitar is for a TRUE champion.
