I own and have played many guitars.Been playing 35 yrs. You will not find a better playing, better built or better tremolo anywhere! Be advised though....you will probably have a hard time puttin it down.
I like the tortoise shell body, it feels confortable, it appears a little bigger. THe neck shape feels more confortable for playing rhythm than playing lead. If you are fender guitar player the neck feels like home, plus the thinner neck from 12 to 24 frets allows for easy access to higher notes.
I don't like the switch blade to change from neck to bridge pick ups. However I do like the default pick ups setting for the neck single coil down/ Humbucker up. and the default setting humbucker on the bridge.
I been playing with this guitar for 2 years since i bought it used. Its great. i have tried other instruments, i always come back to this guitar.
The the neck feel meaty, I had to get use to it, great for rhythm, however once you play on the octives, the neck feels thinner.
I been insprire to play more pop songs, and rock. I love the swack sounds i can get out of this instrument. When i play funk, the notes pop nicely.
The guitar feels solid, the weight of this guitar is balanced.
I have seen and played some newer PRS guitars. The JH PRS 24 frets, 25" bolt on maple neck has its own charecter. Even the 22 fret PRS with maple neck can't compare. Its a brighter sounding guitar compared to the rosewood neck guitars.
WHen ever possible buy it used for $1800 - $1300. its worth the money. This instrument will be a great addition to your collection or weapon of choice when performing live or recording.
My guitar is a Maple Ten Top, it just looks and feels great from the moment you play it. You can easily feel the vibrations of the strings.
Other much more expensive instruments when compared on performance, confort, and looks; the Johnny Hiland PRS takes 1st place.
The resale value of these guitars is excellent, from $1500 to $1800.
