    Great looking guitar there, your wife is very generous. One question; why do you need ten guitars? (This could be a new thread)

    Why? Why? What kind of question is that? It's just because! and besides although ten is a good start there could be guys here with 20, 30 or more, just because!

    As I said to my wife before we went in the store "I don't really need another guitar". Then I couldn't believe what I had said! Anyway, is there any difference between not being able to play one properly as opposed to not being able to play ten properly? It's just a matter of scale!

    When my wife asked me something similar a while back, I countered with asking why she needed 14 clubs in her golf bag. They're all just to hit the ball with, right?

    I thought it was because that's the most you're allowed to have.

    GReat guitar and even greater wife!
    And yep! I had heard the raves from PRS owners but just couldn't fully appreciate the hype until I owned one. Now I can't see owning anything else. My next, on the slim chance there is another NGD for me, will be the McCarty 594.

    Enjoy that guitar a long time and hang on to that wife.

    It's the PRS SE 245 Standard. It has the 245 S pickups and they are just amazing. They clean up really sweet but put some drive in them and they are wicked. Very responsive to slight adjustments in volume. I mostly play through a Helix LT these days and this guitar pared with the Friedman BE is just awesome. It has a wide mahogany neck on this model which I like because I have big hands and I am used to a Les Paul traditional which is a similar size. I have had it a few days now and I have to say I am well impressed. If I can ever afford another high end guitar it will definitely be a PRS.
