As I was finishing up session 4 last month, I went ahead and treated myself to my first electric guitar and amp.  It was more of a combined finish session 4/30th birthday/promotion gift from me, my family, and fiance, but after a month on backorder it finally came in today.  Pretty excited about it and can't wait until I get to the later sessions and start learning some blues. 

I also got a Yamaha THR10C to go along with it so I have the option of some late night practice with the electric.   Might use some of my Musicians friends points I earned on this purchase to buy a blackface type amp later this year once I make some more progress in the course.

Congratulations S Bach, that is a very, very nice guitar. I am a big PRS fan with an SE Santana. You will absolutely love the sounds that this axe will make with various types of music, plus they feel great to play. Enjoy!!

Congrats- Great looking and sounding guitar. I have a little GAS for a PRS myself. Trying to hold off because I obviously don't need one! Enjoy and have fun with this one!

I am pretty pumped about it, I was pretty set on one of the American Fender Strats, but at the end of the day, the silver sky had a lot of tangible and intangible things I couldn't pass up.  Loved the sound and the dedication put into making it sound like the vintage strats, hearing JM songs probably inspires me to most to pick up and play guitar whatever I am doing so he's a big influence on my learning path, and it just feels right.  I also live in Maryland and went to the same college as PRS, so having that connection and supporting the MD business as appealing too.

Congratulations @S Bach!  Gorgeous guitar and you are going to play some great blues with that axe.

I am reading this after watching a presentation by Paul Read Smith at Chicago Music Exchange. It was very interesting.

Great double purchase!

I love your new PRS, she is beautiful. 

I have a Yamaha THR amp myself and I would never part with it. I love the fact that you can get great effects even at low volumes or with earphones.👍

Congrats on NGD and NAD!! Those are the best!!

I'd love to hear what you think about the Silver Sky. I still haven't found one to try in my area.

If you are in the market for a great tube amp later on, I'd highly recommend the Fender Bassbreaker 30R. It is absolutely incredible.
