I think that there's far less point in buying a PRS copy than a Gibson copy, when PRS has (in my opinion) fairly affordable products and amazing quality control to go with it. That's just my view though, don't let it stop you from enjoying a new guitar.

is there a noticeable difference in quality though? those sound like relatively minor details

anyhow that comes out to around $900 USA which sounds like a pretty good price, i'd recommend taking it.

it's the budget/crappy models you see on ebay most of the time - that's for all the japanese replicas. the low-end models for the most part aren't really that much better than new epiphones or mim fenders. the good stuff starts around $800-$1000 and that's the stuff that sells.

brazillian rosewood is supposed to be tighter-grained and thus smoother for bending/vibrato. sonically there's probably very little difference as opposed to indian rosewood (most commonly used rosewood) and supposedly even less of a difference as opposed to madagascan rosewood. to tell the differenc...

Ibanez used to do the same thing....a handful of Destroyers WERE natural korina but most were stained to give the look.
what were they made of? just curious because those ibanez destroyers ended up on alot of late 70's/80's records.
