Even the Pound and Euro don't make them much more affordable.

Ok it has proper tuners on it and a doozy trem, low friction pots etc but it still feels great.

I’m thinking of changing the headstock….
Was gassing for an epi 339 guitar case. The Rockshop just bumped it up from $239 to $279. Ffs
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

Double or singlecut you reckon? I much prefer the PRS headstock.

I had a single cut for a while. Great guitar, neck was a bit small though. Would happily own another. Love the look and the playability compared to a Gibson.

Similar, gassing for my casino from isibashi to arrive before I go away for three weeks next week! Anyone have experience with how long they normally take? It’s been about 2.5 weeks so far.

There's a double P90 solidbody in my future. Can't afford a Novo or even a decent Gibson. Molly's taken the red PRS to the other end of the Earth so this is looking promising. :D

After hearing Nik put the Victory RK head through its paces yesterday, the gas fire has been lit for something similar. Great range of tones from a simple, single channel amp.

Didn't sound as good when I was playing through it for some reason though.. :think:

I never sound good after Nik's been playing either.
