    Step 1. Buy kick ass tele for rock band
    Step 2. Quit rock band, have little use for kick ass tele (I know that sounds blasphemous, but it's not!)
    Step 3. Sell kick ass, now-modded-and-a-little-dinged tele, immediately hand off money to established businessman.
    Step 4. Acquire the goods!

    Sold my deluxe tele, picked up this 2008 pretty-much-mint Custom 22 10-top with birds, case candy from Brent at The Guitar Shop. Stand-up dude, killer gear in that store, and the two guys working every time I went in were great as well.

    This one is the wide-thin carve with Dragon II pickups. I also tried: '97 Custom 24 (regular), 09 Custom 22 (fat), and a '97 McCarty (fat). The Cu24 was right in my price range and felt pretty good, but since I didn't have money for a deposit someone walked in with cash two days later - that simplified the choices! I didn't even try this guitar on my first visit, since it was outside what I really wanted to spend. But when the affordable option sold, well... I have a tendency to upgrade .

    I had a muscle spasm trying the other Cu22 and the McCarty (20 mins play time on both the day I decided), so they were ruled out. This guitar also had more clarity to the tone (same amp and settings, PS PRS amps sound nice) which should play well with the FSM.

    I have band practice tomorrow, should be a good time! I'm going to be doing the McCarty wiring to this one with my store's tech.

    Oh, and I stopped in at Decibel HQ. Nice little spot, some really sexy woods on the racks, and it's always nice to talk to Darren and see what he's up to. I'll order one when I don't mind the wait .

    TL/DR - really stoked on the versatility of my guitar wall, hoping they all stick around for a while!!!

    Now I just have to try really hard to keep this thing in great condition!

    Very nice man. You can never go wrong with a good Custom 22.

    Cheers guys

    It doesn't hurt that I've been wanting one since I was in high school rocking out to Opeth.

    In fact, I think the first thing I will play on this tomorrow will be the intro riff to "Master's Apprentice"

    PRS finishes are gorgeous.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Beautiful finish on that one!

    How do you like the rotary selector switch? I much prefer the toggle.
