    Default PRS OR NEW HP SPECIAL

    Ok guys, I have delemia...

    I am in the process of selling off a chunk of my guitars that I dont play enough to justify keeping around. I was going to take the money and buy a PRS. I already own a wolfgang that I love and will take to my grave. But after seeing the pictures of the new HP specials and considering I pretty much can do what I want from the custom shop, I was wondering if I should order one of those instead.

    What do you guys think. Anyone own a PRS they just cant get enough of? Do we think that the HP will be a wolfgang with a different body? give your opinion.

    I've got a Tremonti model (non SE) that i paid 1400 for at my local dealer. This is a badass guitar. Sounds great and plays really well. It's my main guitar besides my strat. Unfortunately they dont make them anymore due to the gibson lawsuit. Check around on ebay,local dealers, pawn shops. I've played a Tremonti and Santana SE model and to my surprise, they both sounded pretty decent. Overall, I'd defenitly go with a PRS over a non wolfgang Peavey.

    The vibe alone would push me in the direction of a PRS. And by vibe I mean you won't get killed in the resale department if you decide it's not your thing.

    I think quality wise it's probably a push between the two, I doubt the HP is better quality then the Paul Reed Smith. That's the only way I could justify buying an HP over the PRS.

    What model PRS would you be going for?

    I have never played one PRS that sounded good to me. Bear in mind that I have never owned one, either, so my experience with them is limited. I have played Custom 22s and 24s and a Santana--the pickups never sounded good in any of them; too thick and bassy.

    On the other hand, I don't think anyone has ever played the HP Special. If it's kin to the Wolfgang, it's probably not going to be a bad guitar.

    If you feel like spending a little bit more, have a custom guitar built by this guy- www.driskillguitars.com. You choose the specs and color. Had mine for over 3 years and it was worth every penny.

    But if it's only between the named two, I'd truthfully probably go with the Peavey, if it sounds as good as the WG.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    PRS will hold it's re-sale value better. Plus, the PRS is a better quality guitar.
