    Yeah, a PRS 594 that I bought in February and sold in June. Beautiful guitar. Played and sounded incredible. But I couldn’t get comfortable playing it. I play seated the vast majority of the time and the leg cut position on that guitar forced me to twist around really uncomfortably to get to the upper frets and even to pick without always hitting the neck pickup. I’d fatigue really quickly playing that axe, and would hang it up and grab something else within 10-15 minutes. Awesome guitar but not for me... Fortunately I bought it used so it didn’t end up costing me much in the end...

    Usually I need to have the whole package including nice appearance and I'm picky about color.

    I say "usually" because back in my punk/new wave days of the late '70s early '80s it seemed the uglier the better as long as it played OK and sounded raw.
