    I rather like the bird inlays, it's one of the things that makes it a PRS. Never understood the hate for them.

    Not EVERYTHING has to be the way it always was (Fender or Gibson only, dots or blocks only, 24.75" or 25.5" only...)

    What Is the Definition of Non-Objective Art?

    I understand why people like them, but they don't make sense to me. No harm. I will never own a PRS. I have what I need.

    P.S. It is the same reason I don't like f-holes on Tele body shapes. I can deal with a cat's eye though, but I will never have one of those either.

    The PRS sounds good, to me. I would play one.

I've played other chambered LP's that sound great, e.g. a friend's LP supreme (which had the same 490R/498T pups as mine) sounds fantastic. I've also not noticed neck dive on the other LP's I've played, especially not the heavier ones.
    I wonder why that is... how far is the neck pickup from the bridge? When I added the pickup to my 5th Avenue, I put it the same distance from the bridge as the 5th fret is from the nut because I wanted to capture the harmonic overtones to have the ability to keep it more acoustic sounding if I chose. I moved it around before securing it to the pickguard but it sounded best there. I wonder how much the magnetic field of the bridge pickup affects the tone. Some people swear they could hear the difference between a LP Jr and the Special, but I can’t.

    I play a customized Godin 5th Avenue, Córdoba GK Studio, and a Hamer Korina. I also play a Kala uBass on occasion

    I have Kinman pickups on my Jazzmaster. They are advertised for their low magnetic pull. I don't know anything for sure but the guitar plays like buttah (and it sounds good, too.)
