I have a friend with one of these, its a lovely finished guitar, and the feel of it just oozes quality but .. personally I wasnt too keen on its playability, more than likely was the set up but I was left feeling disappointed.

nice review though, looking forward to more smile.gif

Thanks guys!!
The finish on this one was stunning!! Fran, they started installing these with the N3's late last year, wish I'd had one with the Samariums to make a comparison with! smile.gif

Surprised you didn't like the playability Chris! This one wasn't set up like an Ibanez or similar but compared to the Standard Strat I had
there it was really nice!! biggrin.gif

Just thought you might like a sneak preview of the PRS!! Well, actually, I had 2 of them. One plain finish and one with a very slight sunburst effect. Here's a couple of pics, one of each:-

[attachment=23094:513_1_burst_2.jpg]
Very slightly S/Burst finish.

[attachment=23095:513_2_no_burst.jpg]
Plain finish.

There certainly will be Ivan!!!
I'm writing a couple at the moment and this weekend I'm hoping to get my hands on a Dean Micheal Angelo Battio signature and either this week or next week I shall be able to do one on a Dean Vinnie Moore signature too!!!
Also coming will be some Amp and Stomp Box reviews too!!!
