    I'm a Strat fan and love the look of this beauty. Just curious about the neck profile.....is it a little wider, and/or beefier than a Fender.

    Congrats!!!

    I felt the same way. Then I played one. Don’t play one!

    The neck is substantial and slightly wider. Super comfortable.

    Congrats Tony!

    A Strat and a PRS is a pretty good match up.

    PRS is not exactly the first brand that comes to my mind when thinking about Strats. Cool find. Congrats, Tony.

    I gigged it tonight for the first time. It’s just an incredible guitar. Exquisite, really....a fine instrument.

    I'd feel better about it if it had the santana headstock. I hate prs headstocks like ebola on a monkey pox, but I can say for sure that my 90's PRS CE-22 was the best sounding and feeling strat I'd ever played and I do love my 91' strat even w its 13gauge pyramid flats. :) btw.. I'm clam-master here in this vid, but can you take the jump blues thing I'm doing straight into the amp w that PRS and fluid drive and give us a demo of the same thing? My strat is very dark and warm w those cables on it to the octal tubes, but the Suhr V60 I'm playing in the neck is prob comparable to the silversky's neck w any vox or fender amp. Dunno about the bridge since I've got an early cstm shop texas special there w a dimarzio fastrack under the pickgard blended in. (master vol, master tone, blender)

    I believe it is a hell of guitar but I just can not see this headstock. Also I realy don't like a look of strat body so this combo is not for me :) I know the look is not the most important but...

    Yeah man - I’m in Nashville this week but when I get back I’ll jump in the studio and do that very thing!
