    Wat is diss, grandpas guitarz??

    Didn't buy anything cool at NAMM, so I blew the money I had saved on these TGP-approved babies. I actually went in just to get the PRS, but the owner made me a deal I couldn't refuse on the Gibby, and I've been wanting a P90 LP for awhile now. So it's top ramen till Spring, but it is worth it.

    The Gibson is a special Guitar Center run of P90 equipped Traditional Pros. Locking tuners, single ply binding, no chambering, with coil-tappable P90s (they go from 8kish to 6kish, I think). It says 60's neck, but it's not as skinny as most slim-tapers I've played. Really comfy.

    The PRS is from a run of Wood Library DGTs from The Guitar Store in Seattle. James, the owner, went to Maryland and picked out the wood, including the sweet ebony fretboard. The DGT has a thicker body than the Custom 24s, bigger frets, a narrower but thicker neck than the pattern regular, and special DGT pickups. Much thicker sounding than any of my CU24s. So far, my favorite PRS I've ever played.

    I'll be swapping the pickups out for Wolfetones: Meaner/Mean P90 set in the Gibby, and the "Deathmonkey set" - Blisterbucker bridge/Gray Wolf neck - for the PRS.

    I made a video of me playing em. Don't watch it too close to mealtimes.

    Well played, sir. The bridge pickup lead tone on that DGT is sick.
    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

    nice chops captain! vibrato is particularly decent, imo. not sure if it's because I've been on this forum for way too long, but I like that PRS. it's pretty nice lookin'.
