    This kind of stuff was really fun when Eddie did it 25 years ago; it sounds a bit silly to me now.

    I recently purchased my second PRS guitar. This model:

    The first thing I did was make certain the tremolo bar was firmly tucked away in the case, most likely never to be touched again.:D

    Yeah it's awfully pretty... but I haven't played professionally for over twelve years, and haven't really touched a guitar in nearly five. So I'm willing to bet yours <b>sounds</b> a good bit better at the moment. Also, I let go of a Les Paul and a Strat to afford this thing, so I've got this whole bittersweet feeling going on right now.

    Not sure I just started playing as a band. so I dont really think I can compare myself to someone profesional-yes even if they are a bit rusty.

    I actually been saving for a new one, -the current one is basically okay but its starting to show its years, I been looking into strats and Les Paul, Im not sure what Im buying though. I just want it in either black/blue/red or any convination of those collors.

    That's a bit high for me. I guess I will settle on getting a Strat .

    Thank you! I shopped around quite a bit. They make some VERY expensive models, depending on the finish and options. Mine was $2500ish. Definitely two of my favs in my collection, but my 1972 Gibson ES-175D is the crown jewel. Here's what those look like:

    Sadly, all of my sixteen instruments are (much like my TF collection) in storage. Real life priorities overtake fun sometimes.
    :cry 

    Oh, and you can't go wrong with a Strat. I have the American Standard 40th Anniversary Edition and a Roland GuitarSynth-ready Standard Strat. Both play beautifully. Also, I have a Peavey Strat knockoff (which can be picked up for around $225) that is a real gem. It was my "throwaround" guitar in college, but it did a fine job. You really don't have to spend a lot to get a decent instrument.

    Great looking guitar. You can't go wrong with Gibson. I have a Gibson classical. I love it.

    And,yes,I've eally had an interest in Strats for awhile. I really love the sound and the design. I'm just now considering buying one. And I'm sure I an find on at a reasonable price and get what I want.
