Mark Playing A New Guitar?

Postby snowman » Sat Oct 03, 2015 5:07 pm

Just saw this photo on the old FB:

In the comments one person was saying Mark was supposed to debut a new PRS today. It's kind of weird not seeing him playing a singlecut since he's been playing those for years between Gibson & PRS. It'd be interesting to get a look at it from a different angle.

EDIT: Just found this picture as well.

Not digging that shape whatsoever. The knob config looks interesting, though.

Holy shit, like a PRS take on an Explorer with a dash of Mockingbird thrown in. But yeah seeing him with that freaks me out a little.

That is one the ugliest shapes I've ever seen for a guitar.

Yea, not a huge fan of the shape as well, but I don't really mind. It could be worse. Like the Dean Myles used to use for a short while or this monstrosity:

I'm actually angry that exists.

I want Myles's signature guitar dammit, we've been teased for so long without substance. This seems to be Mark with far too much time on his hands.

nice finish on the guitar...kinda cool with the flamed sides and the non-flame stripe down the center.

i'm not sure if this will work for you guys, but Lenny Carkido posted a short video of Mark using it. sounds good to me. that's the most important thing.

Leaves a lot of room for a kickass paint job!

In this case, PRS stands for "Pretty Retarded Shark"...

If Paul came up to any of you and said... "here is the guitar that you said you wanted us to make for you, it's the only one ever made".. I doubt you would tell him to get lost. It's cool, it's different, who cares. As long as it doesn't make Mark suck at guitar.....which it doesnt

If it was that pink thing I'd tell him to go insert himself into the rectum of an elephant.

Which would inspire Myles to write a sequel to Beneath The Savage Sun.

The amount of people complaining about the shape of a guitar has somewhat baffled me. It's basically a mix of an Explorer and a Firebird. I don't like it more than his singlecut, but it's a different idea which is rare for guitar makes nowadays. About everything else new is just a carbon copy of something else.
