The local shop had a gold top PRS here a while ago, that was a complete dud. Countless people tried it and hated it. I thought he would never sell it at his asking price. The other guitar I had that I grew to hate. Was my Ovation 12 string custom. I got it for cheap and it was a beautiful looking guitar. The neck angle was lousy. It cracked and no one could fix it. And the weird thing is. When I played it, is sounded flat dull and lifeless. Yet it actually projected an amazing sound that was extremely loud. And even though I mentally knew It was sounding good for the people I played it for. I just couldn't get over the blah feeling it gave me to play it.
