    My new Parlor from PRS.
    PRS SE P20
    Today i tried the Gretsch Deltoluxe pickup with the guitar.

    I made a soundtest:
    Fender Blackface simulation with tremolo and some overdrive.

    That's a cool swampy, raunchy sound out of that acoustic guitar with a pickup. Nice!

    Very cool. I have a Gretsch Jim Dandy, and that was a very eye-opening guitar for me in the sense that I had no idea how much easier smaller guitars are to play (I have a Taylor dreadnaught as my main acoustic). I love playing the JD and I can only imagine how much better then PRS parlor is. Yours is beautiful. The pickup seems great, too.

    The Jim Dandy is a great guitar, there's a Jim Dandy model with the Deltoluxe pickup called Gin Rickey.
    These little guitars are great for Blues.

    Beautiful guitar! I love that finish, and I started getting into the whole parlor acoustic thing myself a few months ago (dreadnaught acoustics just seem so big now). Also, that tremolo and overdrive combination is cool. That's almost a slide sound. Makes me want to work on that myself.

    Very nice. I have been tempted by that Deltoluxe pickup. (And I didn’t know PRS was doing parlour acoustics.)

    Never could get on with PRS' headstock design, but that's a beautiful guitar otherwise. Lovely burst and matte finish. The nutjob in me would probably try to gently peel that pickguard off, but that's just me.

    I also wasn’t a fan of the PRS headstock but when I played this guitar I was convinced of the great sound and the quality is flawless. These guitars are great.
