Overall Rating:
I didn't really look at other guitars when I bought this guitar. I had previously owned a PRS McCarty Soapbar, and I had my eye on the Brazilian ever since it was in the store. I traded my soap bar in and paid the extra cash for the Brazilian

Great guitar. Worth the money. If you are looking for a cheaper PRS model I recently played a CE 22 and it sounded pretty good.
Price: $2600.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Buffalo Brothers Guitar
Features:
Double cut-away carved top body Natural maple binding 2 McCarty Humbuckers with hybrid finish (chrome cover, gold screws) one piece wraparound tailpice with hybrid finish (chrome with gold studs) "ten-top" quilt maple dyed orange Natural mahogany back Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, headstock overlay, and trussrod cover Satin finished indian rosewood neck Vintage style tuners hybrid finish Abalone bird inlays on fingerboard Abalone Bird Inlaid "Paul Reed Smith" signature on headstock
Playability:
Excellent action, possibly the best guitar I have ever played The necks satin finish feels extremely smooth and it is easy to play on I do not see any flaws in this guitar
Sound Quality:
Excellent sound quality. Goes from a blues sound, all the way to hard rock or whatever else you want do do with it.
Durability:
I have not had to adjust it at all and I have had it about 8 months. All hardware is in excellent condition. I wouldn't know about climate changes (living in San Diego, the weather is always the same)
