To me, the best thing about boutique builders isn't just good wood and high build quality. It's consistency: every guitar that goes out the door is a good one, or they never leave the shop. Every Suhr I ever tried was great enough to be considered very special by normal standards. James Tyler makes some exceptional S-types too. Amazing live feel, and super necks. Been a fan of PRSs ever since I got my first back in the 80s. Have never played a Silver Sky but I'd love to try one out someday.
