Last year, I came across an ad for a 2001 PRS McCarty, in a goldtop finish. Being a lefty, I had never even seen a left-handed PRS guitar in real life. I decided to e-mail the guy selling the instrument and to try it out. Needless to say, I was blown away by the attention to detail, the looks and the feel of the guitar. A few days later, I got to try it through my own rig and I was sold instantly. That axe had to be mine. Since then, I bought another PRS. My second (and probably not last) PRS guitar is a 2012 Custom 22 in a red flame finish. Again, I am delighted with the sound, finish, superior build quality and feel. PRS rocks!
