PRS vs Fender
I need some suggestions, I currently have a 20th anniversary custom 22. Plays beautifully, i played a Fender early 50's reissue strat and loved the tone. I have a super reverb reissue and played the strat through my amp. I loved it, even sounded like it hade more output than my PRS. The strat had a "ring" or a "chime" to it with a rich tone i can't get out of my guitar. Input or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Sound like you've got it figured out... Love the Strat? Buy the Strat.

Comparing a Custom 22 to a Strat is most definitely apples and oranges. Both are excellent at what they do but two completely different tone structures. You need both.
I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
I agree, Bb. They are really 2 different animals. That's why you have to have different tools in the tool box.
I'm not sayin' that, I'm just sayin'......
Use the right tool for the job.
Comparing the two is like comparing a Phillips and standard screwdriver.
Theres a reason SRV is known for strats and Duane Allman for Les Pauls
Yep, have both, definitely the way to go. Luv my Santana, for what it does. But, it doesn't do Strat or Tele!
Whether you think you can...or you can't...you're right!
Some mistakes are just too much fun to only make once!!!
Yup. One of each is not quite enough. Just keep buying guitars until you forget about some of them back in the closet. Then you'll have nearly enough.

Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
