My New Toy
Paul Reed Smith Santana SE. I'll take a better shot of it later - one with less background distraction. This guitar sounds better than I do picking at it. I know that sounds absurd but even with my untutored ear, I can hear how clean the tone is. The strings are fast, the neck is wide which allows my chubby fingers a bit of leeway.
I owe a debt of more than gratitude to the friends who connected me with this fantastic instrument. I must now live up to it. And I have the sneaking suspicion that a couple few years down the road, I'll be buying another PRS. I already have an eye on the Swamp Ash Special.
