So who here plays a PRS (bring pics)

Post by Commander Coo1 » Thu Jan 24, 2008 7:36 pm

i know a lot of people here play em, so lets see em!
here are mine:
this one is a 1999 CE24 with a wide thin neck, and maply pickup rings
Image

this one is a 1996 CE24 signed on the backplate by paul reed smith himself, and it also has birds which is pretty hard to find on a CE, it also has a regular neck carve and rosewood pickup rings.

here is another shot with some photoshop editing fun (not that it really needs it):

I have a nice one but it has been a dust collector for a few years now. I moved to Tom Andersons and the PRS doesnt cut it for me anymore.

hey nqd, how do you like the dragon/tremonti combo, i have been thinking of trying it for a while. does it sound good split like the hfs and vintage bass if you have heard them to compare.

Have I already asked when this was made? I know of a few people whose birded '96 CE's were made within a few weeks of mine.

BTW, that has a really intense figuring for a CE! Nice guitar!!

To my ears, the dragon bass is extremely sweet, almost like tasting candy. I think it's the quintessential pick to define the PRS sound. It's described by PRS as having a "sweet angelic high end." It's not dark, muddy, or shrill. It's very punchy and creamy. The VB is warmer and less punchy. It's a little "sloppier" if you want to call it that. Different strokes for different folks.

The Tremonti treble is very very hot and a little scooped to give him that metal tone.

man i dont have the guitar with me right now so i dont remmember the date or serial on it, but ill try to get it to you tomorrow. and i believe you did ask before but i dont remmember what happened after that, at least someone did i think on the prs forum.

yea i have been thinking that the dragon 1 bass might be more for me than the vintage bass. but im worried about altering this ce cause its such a great guitar, maybe if i can pick up a used dragon 1

The Dragon bass is one of the best pups that i ever heard. I totally agree with Elpelotero, its punchy and creamy. In clean tone is rich, smooth, and sweet... lovely. I pup the two pups on distorsion way... the power and the bass of the Dragon and the Hot and the define of the Tremonti. Really balls to the wall sound. Palm mutes from hell. lol

PS I love the Dragon pup and i thinking to buy the treble too...so you know, for me thats the prs sound
