Sooo,

I have always been on the hideout to find a PRS Torero Amethyst. It perfectly adds to my Telecast 22", Seymour Duncans since it has all that my lovely Tele has not. Active EMG 81 and 60 PUs, Floyd Rose, 24 Jumbo Frets and a totally different style.

And somehow I fell in love with that purple finish. Anyhow, official price is somewhat 1.600€. Hence I was searching for a used one but it's a limited version and not a lot is on the market.

Today, I made my random check of prices and saw that there is one in my LOCAL musicstore (who would have thought so) that goes for 900€. It seemed to be my lucky day, so I rushed and grabbed my phone and they first said price was reduced due to the guitar being out of their exhibition. Still 700 € is quite a lot of saving. I told the guy to back it up so that I can check it (it was the only model at that store though it is a huge one).

When I arrived I was already too excited. But here came the good news: Guitar was freshly packed never opened. Exhibition was a wrong information and it was also no B product. I tried it out again and could not find any optical nor mechanical or "soundy" defects.

Pulled the credit card and made myself smile for today smile.gif here she goes... by the name of Laura tongue.gif

Thanks guys! Playing on it is a blast as well. Just have to get used to Floyd Rose again. From time to time I put my lazy hand on the bridge and mess up the tone tongue.gif

I think it's normal to rest your hand on the bridge even on a Floyd Rose. I do at least. It's just about finding balance and being delicate enough.

Hope so. Years back I owned an Ibanez RG 370 or sth. Quite a cheap model for a floyd rose guitar. And my experience has been so poor. Crossing fingers that this disappointment won' t happen again!
