Experience PRS 2021

Post by jeremyb »

Some great footage and talk on how they build their guitars in here.

The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking Lego.

PRSs are considered uncool sometimes. What's not to like though?

It’s a proven factoid that no-one ever got laid playing a PRS.

That’s why PRS is so angry - he builds one of the best guitars in the world, and some munter with a broken headstock and stonewash denim jacket walls into the bar and steals his girl....

They're great for insomnia, just glancing my eyes across one instantly puts me to sleep.

The problem PRS has always faced is for their target market, all the good body shapes are taken. So instead they ended up with something that is best described as not offensive... even with all the Private Stock offensiveness they try and glue to them.

They even admitted it with the Silver Sky, they didn't even bother to try and make it look like something other than what it was copying.

Especially Mayer - Silver Sky introduced 2018 - before vs after is somewhat notable: https://www.more.com/celebrity/just-wai ... has-dated/

While you are correct, in the interest of balance might I mention
Tokai
Suhr
LSL
Exotic
Fernandes
Schecter
Hahn
And this wouldn't be 10% of the total.

My point isn't that copying a strat is a new thing, more that PRS have spent decades trying to not be a Gibson or Fender copy. Plus there are examples of guitars trying to be strats, without looking exactly like a strat, the Godin Passion for example.
