I'd never played a PRS before but anytime I'd seen them on YouTube etc I always thought they seemed a bit 'meh'. Not very exciting in terms of tone or appeal.
My father in law brought down his PRS SE 245 this evening to let me try it (comparing it to my Epiphone Les Paul) and I have to say I am all turned round on the subject!
Playing through my little Blackstar HTR-1 it produced a rather fantastic sound, and the guitar just felt great. It just goes to show that all the comparison videos in the world don't mean anything without actually playing said guitar! I love the grunt that my Les Paul gives, but the PRS had much more 'space' tonally, for want of a better expression.
I'm seriously considering trading/selling the Epiphone and picking up a used SE of some description.
