So the night I got my PRS Custom 24 S2, I ran I thought some of the songs I've done recently with the band I am in. I also though a good comparison would be with the blues jam I posted almost 5 months ago.

Here it is. In it I switch between the bridge and neck pickups for each round through the progression. Personally I like the neck pickup the best...I'm a sucker for smooth jazzy tones.

I've since gotten better at manipulating the tone through my G5, but here's a first shot.

Much fewer mistakes in this one than the first :-).

Happy Listening!!

Thanks! Listening again I wasn't too keen on the trebly tone. I've managed to tweak that more to my liking. The deeper tone I was really pleased with.

Thanks for listening!

"Listening again I wasn't too keen on the trebly tone."

I was thinking the same thing, but with the guitar being new and your still learning the tones, I didn't want to say anything. I liked the middle tone best myself.

Thanks!!!! :-). Yes, the band practice definitely helps. I was forced to improvise solos that were out of my comfort zone and played them countless times in rehearsal!

Hey Rich..
I like the cut of the treble.. May be my defective hearing, it flicked my Bic.. You may like the treble more when playing live.
Did you try much with the coil tap..?
Great job, will be looking for more...

Hey thanks guys!! It isn't so much that I don't like the trebly tone, it just doesn't suit the track. It was more an experiment to get a feel for each tone setting. It does have a nice bite to it! But yeah, if I was using that tone and my audience liked it...I'd stick with it :-).

I have played with the coil taps, though not on this track. That adds a whole other dimension of tone. I love the versatility. I like the coil taps on this.

Axe...you must have missed my other posts about this guitar!! I have to admit, the guitar has been an adjustment for me. It has a very different feel and responds very differently to my playing. The more I play it and learn about it, the more I really like it!! It works very well with my Zoom G5 and I can get a ton of different tones with it.

The neck feels awesome!!! It is super smooth and the action is REALLY low with no fret buzz. It's a Custom 24 S2 in Black Cherry. The color is incredible!! It is a gorgeous guitar! The fit and finish is unlike anything I've ever seen before. The fretwork is amazing.

So now that I'm used to the feel and am comfortable playing it, I really love it. I can't wait to play it at band rehearsal this week...and then play it out eventually.

I still like my other guitars...my strat will always be my "first guitar", but this PRS is something special.
