I'm over due for some photos so I made the effort. Not the best, but oh well. :lol: The Seymour Duncan Jazz/JB set is coming out, too shrill with the SLO-100.

Here's my Custom 24. I took out the PRS pups and put in Duncans - Custom Custom in neck, and JB in the bridge. Keeps the wide variety of tones available, which is why I wanted a jack of all trades PRS guitar. IMO it is one of the better utility guitars out there - good (great!) at many things. I also took out the 5 way rotary pup selector and put in a 3 way with a push/pull tone to split the bridge pup. Works swell.

My 513 without any doubt. I sold besides my Hollowbody and my Swamp-ash to buy it. It is an extraordinary guitar on all the ways.

As does the SCT. Raspberry or Black Cherry? It's a little hard to tell with the lighting.

I wasn't a fan of PRS guitars because I never knew anyone that would let me use one for an extended period of time and I didn't want to plunk down that much money on a gamble to see if I liked it. Luckily the Army decided to buy a Custom 24 and I signed it out on Monday...WOW this guitar is just a tone monster and plays better than my Parker Fly. Here's the pic of the guitar that inspired me to find a Custom 24 for myself:

Yeah, it's an absolute plain jane cu24 and it is pretty beat for being an 05 but after I adjusted the action it plays incredibly well. My Parker Fly Classic is up for sale and I just bought this since the price was just too good to let pass(i warn the pics aren't stunning ):

Image

No birds but it has a 10 top (quilted and the color is whale blue). I will take better pics after I receive the guitar in a couple of weeks. This will be MY first PRS and the most expensive guitar I've bought so far.

I am so glad I laid my hands on the Cu24 because my picking hand never jived with the Parker and it slowed me down significantly. Now I am picking and playing better than ever and i only seem to be getting better. Maybe it's just poor technique on my part but the carved top is exactly what my right forearm needed for support while I pick.
Arigato gozaimas!

2002 CE-24 flame maple binding, rare Cabernet finish color. I think some rosewood pickup rings would set it off nicely...those cream ones stand out too much.

I don't get PRS guitars at all. They are eye candy for sure, but I have never been impressed. I have played some very expensive PRS's at guitar stores, and I never understood the hype.
