    I hope posting this doesn't offend - I do have four well-loved Telecasters that I have used to post here many times. I'm sure someone can remove it if it does. This is the PRS I've been waiting for really: one with a Fenderish aspect and a Surfy look. These backing tracks are all ones that have appeared as the weekly challenge.

    Great sounds and playing! I played one of these in the store and almost wished I hadn't - the GAS bit hard. They're just really good instruments, and not very expensive. No dentist jokes from me.

    No, but looking at it, I bet then in between sound on the front two Type 'D's is nice.

    There's many PRS guitars I'd like to own and the Vela is one of them. SE Semi-hollow, SE Santana, 245 Single Cut, Mira and Starla are the others.

    .

    I keep Velas on my CL and Reverb search lists... that charcoal satin with tortoise pickguard short run they did a few months back is the one I watch for.

    ^^ @Zepfan the SE single cut 22 and the soapbar P90 single cut are good ones I have and play often, I like them better than the Santana (and I have a second year diagonal stripe which has a thin flat top body and a newer birds version with the shaped top).

    Sounds great. You may have seen local musician Bryan Ewald on a PRS demo. He favors the Vela, I like the Mira a lot.

    It is. As you know with the Vela the Studio doesn’t sound like anything but itself. The middle on the 5 way is the neck and bridge together which is a interesting chose for PRS.

    I forgot about those, more to add to the list. If I were a rich man, I'd have to get a warehouse to hold all the gear and guitars. I think I have a problem.:D:D

    I've had my Vela for a year now and it is such a great guitar in every way.

    Must admit that Studio S2 is looking even more attractive, especially as I'm starting in a new covers band. Could cover a lot of ground with that machine...
