I am a serious collector of guitars I have a 28 piece varied collection of all kinds of guitars especially Paul Reed Smiths. I have USA made ones and SE korean made, and with the Zach Myers (ZM) model it is easily one of the best in the SE line. The finish is unreal. The neck which is a matte smooth finish on the back is the most comfortable I have ever played in 10 years of guitar playing. I paid around $700 from Sky Music Australia. If you want a PRS professional quality guitar without paying over a grand for that has looks that looks like a gorgeous Canadian woman looking at you with her breathtaking green eyes while you are on a date amongst the maple trees somewhere in Ontario, a sentient, alive and breathing tone then this is the ultimate creature for you!
