    My first prestige guitar, and this thing truly rips! Just wanted to share a photo of the top on this one.

    The PAF 8s are very clear and fat sounding, and the guitar is overall a very solid, beautifully made piece. No QC complaints other than the factory string gauges held the guitar back a little. With new, more carefully selected gauges and a quick tweak to the action, it played much, much better than it did in the store. I tune to standard, occasional drop E. Guitar will be exclusively for recording.

    I'll drop a sound clip in here asap, but for now here's a gigantic photo. Happy djorking!

    HNGD! Prestiges are really great guitars. Enjoy it and I hope it inspires some killer riffs!

    Ever since I read that somebody thought that the finish looks like poop in a pool I can't get it out of my head. Now all I see is poop in a pool.

    Congrats!!!

    Played one of these last year and loved it. If I could justify an 8string this would be the one I’d get.
