    NGD: Artist edition

    Well, the 3-tone sunburst has gone to a loving home just up the highway and Liz is home! She got dropped off at work, and somehow I managed to stick around another 2 and a half hours after that!

    Bought from forumite at guitarscanada, absolute stand-up gentleman who held the guitar for me, helped me advertise my sale and sold me a 10/10 guitar.

    Pics (iPhone 4S):

    *original photos from TGS here*: 2011 PRS ARTIST V Ser#177383 - The Guitar Shop ....... 905-274-5555

    I unboxed it at work, and everyone thought it was brand new

    Anyway, on to the details (that I know of)

    - 2011 PRS Artist V in Eriza Verde

    Top Wood: Artist Grade Flame Maple
    Back Wood: Ribboned Mahogany
    Finish: V12
    Number of Frets: 22
    Scale Length: 25"
    Neck Wood: Peruvian Mahogany
    Fretboard Wood: Ebony with Mother of Pearl Purfling
    Neck Shape: Pattern Regular
    Fretboard Inlays: Paua Birds with Mother of Pearl Outlines
    Headstock Inlay: Ebony Veneer with Abalone Signature and
    Mother of Pearl “Artist V”
    Bridge: PRS Tremolo Tuners: PRS Phase III Tuners
    Truss Rod Cover: Ebony
    Hardware Type: Gold
    Treble Pickup: Artist V
    Bass Pickup: Artist V"

    Initial thoughts are the neck definitely feels a little different then my wide-thin standing up, but a strap adjustment seems to have that fairly sorted. I do miss the split pickup sounds on my Custom 22, but positions 2 and 4 sound good. I haven't spent a ton of time playing it yet, but after this post that's exactly what I'm going to do.

    And then, I'm going to stare at it

    God DAMN is that nice. The green complements the mahog so well.

    I have not put this thing down. It is a change from the custom 22 (I think the body might be a *touch* thicker?) but once it's at the right height it's a party. Plays great sitting down as well.

    Once I put manlier strings I'll give it a proper pick-like-a-man treatment and then we should be set!

    I also want to add that it sounds *really* nice with the volume turned down. Still not used to the position of the 5-way either
