Jamming at blues association Prs se 245 a 51 year olds ramble

I took our one son to play at open jam last night. And he is thirteen coming along fine on fretboard. Structured lessons with his teacher jamming with dad and friends and the internet has added years to this young mans chops since he picked it up at age nine. He is much further along than I was at his age.

What Iím amazed with is the guitar now it has upgrades Prs 59 and 57 humbuckers CTís pots new caps wiring. New aluminum tail piece and nut, and it was made in Indonesia I gather a very wet country wet and wood on guitar I was thinking . So the bubble has busted and they have some fine luthiers in Indonesia. Playing through a back line of divided by 13 and Carol Ann amps. This guitar sounded awesome and held its own.

As avid collector of ceartin made in Japan guitars. I remember the squire Indonesian strats just junk. Although I bought our niece a squire Indonesian tele it works for her now. But Prs definitely quality control, now Iím thinking of buying another one going same route with upgrades. And dropping in Seymourís whole lotta humbuckers I have a set of them in my one tokai. Anyway for the price of the used guitar and price on upgrades. Around 750$ total for a quality guitar you canít go wrong just my observation.

1. Looking forward to the annual reset so you can buy another gut bucket?

I seem to remember hearing, "One guitar per year!" Well if I can talk my dear love into sort of okaying me getting a new bicycle you have a chance on another guitar.

3. This bike is one that I have dreamed about

A lot more costly than $80.00. It is a titanium Lynskey. I bought the frame, fork and a few odds and ends from a young Dad who never built it. That was the cheapest part as I had to buy gears, brakes, levers and derailleurs - oh and handlebar and saddle.

I am in the process of building it. I had a pair of good wheels so I didn't have to buy them. Even though it is not ride-able it is starting to look like a bike.

This is not it but very close.
