Other Guitars Got a Tokai or Agile? Some other LP or ES Copy? What to discuss Strats and Teles? It doesn't have to resemble a Gibson to be discussed, but if it does that's even better.

Sorry, but I don't own any guitars by PRS. Most of my guitars are made by Gibson, Fender, and Carvin.
Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul.
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

I have owned many PRS in the past, including the original Santana SE and high spec US made ones.

I have none now. Whilst the guitars, including those made out of the US, are well made I always found the pickups lacking, in fact almost bland. The only one I have owned that had decent pickups was the Santana III, the rest to be honest were dreadful compared to my Gibson guitars.

Yes people could say you can change the pickups. In fact I did, on a Singlecut, from stock humbuckers to P90s. It made it better but not as good as my R6.

To be honest, I am not interested in changing pickups. I trust those that the manaufacturer gives me.

So advice from me is try the PRS. If you like the way it plays and sounds, then go for it. If you can't try one, then I wouldn't

I've never owned one. I've played a few that I liked, notably the P90 equipped thinline version they had a few years back. It was quite nice. They all seem to play well when properly set up, The thing is, it doesn't matter what we think, it has to sound good to your ears. Try some out and let your ears decide.
Take Care
We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
