Man, I've been having bad GAS attacks lately. "GAS" being Gear Acquisition Syndrome. These poor orphan guitars keep showing up on eBay and I feel sorry for them, so I make room for them in my stable.
Here's the latest new member of the family...it's a PRS SE Custom 22, about 12 years old. I didn't have a teal-colored guitar, so I needed this one.
The wood and finish on this one are almost flawless. No dings, dents, or scratches. It obviously hasn't been played much at all. I did learn an important lesson on this one, though: Don't take a guitar to a gig without having at least plugged it in to make sure all the electronics work. On the first song of the night last Friday, I discovered that the neck pickup was not working at all. I had put new strings on it and set up the action and intonation, but I never did actually plug it in at home before the gig. Ah well, I had a few other guitars on the stand that night, so it was more on an inconvenience than anything. I suspect there's a loose connection somewhere, but I'm not going to even bother tracking it down. I've already got a set of Seymour Duncan Hotrodded Humbuckers that I'm planning to put in it as soon as the push-pull switching pots arrive from Stewmac.
I also recently bought this guitar's 10 year old cousin, another SE Custom 22, in gray. The finish on it's not quite as nice as this one, and I already have another gray guitar, so I'm considering listing the gray PRS on eBay before too long. (Although I might have a local buyer for it.)
My bandmate Mike keeps threatening to have an intervention to help me with my GAS problem. I don't really see it as a problem, but I am to the point where I choose which guitars to take to a gig based on what I'm wearing. I try to take the ones that are color coordinated with my outfit, lol.
