I've tried to stay extremely neutral on the thing, and the cost doesn't bother me but there have been a lot of opinions on tone from people who have not heard or tried one in person which I've tried to discount from the conversation. However, there are a lot of demos out there now and none are amazing. I don't care much about the lead channel, I wouldn't use it, but the clean channel hasn't blown me away yet either.
It sounds good, sure, but in every demo it sounds like a good clean platform at bedroom volumes, it doesn't seem to breathe, always sounds quite thin. I've noticed bad EQing in a few vids (one of them has the presence up full for the whole demo) so that may contribute.
I've had one on preorder since January, I put my order in before it was formally announced, but whether I fulfill that order will be determined on a playtest first.
In conclusion, I think there are two conclusions that I could now draw. Either: -
1) The amp is not that good.
2) This is the worst executed publicity campaign that I can remember in history. PRS's insistence on only demoing this with PRS guitars has hurt them when it's obviously targeted at a crowd of Strat players, and bad demos from stores hasn't helped. Honestly, I want to see an iPhone demo with this thing roaring and the EQ where Mayer sets it.

PS I'm not knocking anyone for using PRS, please, one of our best members has an amp on the way, which I'm sure will be killer and workmanship pristine, etc. Paul just bothers me, sorry, perhaps as I do others who don't know me...just not surprised hearing Andy's remarks is all.

No I didn't read past Andy's 2-3 posts..is there a link?
PS I'm not implying PRS makes crap. I helped my friend get a great deal on a entry level model (SE) at GC for his kid...it played good. You know, when you put your face as an owner in every social media outlet, try to draw attention to yourself, as if your a guitar God, etc....people can't help but judge the person and forget about the product....Paul should stay behind the curtain, he's a designer (some might question this) and manufacturer, not a stage performer.

On the face of it, that was a nice gesture, but I can't help but think it was to simulate a friendship with one of the worlds most influential video reviewers to a point where he would almost feel obliged to say nice things about your stuff. IDK.
Give him guitar on his birthday at his house (if you're so close), but ensure it never leaks it out, it's very personal.., but no, Paul wants it to leak out...why...to gain "attention to himself"....stupid. It's not a sincere gift, you think the million nice beautiful gifts JM has given out to business associates leaks...never, they're sincere and personal....also, it's highly unethical for Lee to accept, my buyers would get fired if they got caught accepting a gift from me, but again, there's ways around it when and if, you're really close to that person. Paul just can't help himself...it's ego and $$.

He's contacted me a few times directly to shoot down Two-Rock amplifiers (I think I still have the messages on TGP.) The dude makes fantastic amps, but his conduct online makes me not like him. He may be right, I don't know.
