Hey! I'm Nick...I've been playing guitar for over 7 years. I attend the University of Connecticut where I am in the process of getting my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.
I currently play 2 PRS Custom guitars...they're like Fraternal twins: Similar and different in their own ways. My Custom 24 is the more beefy of the two....with the HFS(Hot, Fat, and Screams)pickups. It's a more "shred" worthy guitar if you will...24 frets, wide-thin neck, trem bridge..etc...etc. Has the figured 10 top which projects an almost 3D image. Amazing guitar.
My other of the two is the Custom 22. This model is great for a more bluesy sound...Dragon II pups, wide-fat neck, trem. Gives me everything that the 24 does not...which is only a few things in reality since these are extremely versatile guitars. Also features a 10 top which projects a nice 3D image.
I've played many many of today's top guitars but none of them could give me the same playability and sound these two guitars can. They beat any Gibson or Fender anyday. They're also made of much higher quality than those other brands....Paul Reed Smith makes sure every single guitar is made with exact precision and fine tuning. Down to every last detail. The best of the best. If you haven't played a PRS before...I HIGHLY recommend driving down to the local shop and playing one right now!
Here's a list of some of the guitars I've had the pleasure to own in my guitar playing career. As you can see....I usually don't buy crap...sometimes I buy a few "toys" like the JEM or the Warlock...but even those aren't too bad of guitars.
