    This pretty much sums it up.

But I guess once you've earned that "prestige" level with your main business venture, every thing else you do will naturally follow suit.
    The PRS Tremonti mini amp is good. I like the vids of the Archon, but I've never seen one in the wild.

    You are paying two names on those guitars:

    Grover and Friedman.


    I don't doubt they are nice guitars, if they are 3K nice or if they are 2K + nicer than a Pro Mod MIM Charvel... I doubt it.


    Luxxtone guitars prices are basically the same (if not more), look cooler to me and have way more options. Also Friedman Headstock look hideous.

    Hey, at least he got Grover to help him with his latest ripoff of someone else's design.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    A waste of wood...

    He is an Amp builder. Be one.

    I can't imagine people wanting a guitar that looks like a beat up Charvel, Suhr or Fender with the name "Friedman" on it.
    Not every amp company can be a "Guitar" company and vice-versa, someone mentioning PRS being a an Amp builder.

    The only notable people I've seen play one was Warren Haynes and Mark Tremonti.
    It's all just weird... In the words of Ron Swanson, "Don't half-ass two things. Whole ass one thing."
    If anyone has any prayer requests, need to talk, or have questions about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    Feel free to message me.


    God Bless, Venator

    He's not even touching them - I'm sure these are ghostbuilt.
