UTILIZATION

Access to the upper frets is very good and not limited by the neck heel and shallow lower horn cutaway.

There is a nice variety of sounds available from the two humbuckers and 3-way rotary pick up switch and it is easy to get a nice array of tones.
The guitar has perfect balance and a great medium neck. Very comfortable standing or sitting.

I've got the action set at 3/64" all the way across the neck - it is a great and easy player!
My particular guitar is light but packs huge tone!
The PRS #7 pickups were a little too much on the vintage side, so I changed the bridge out for a DiMarzio tone zone I had laying around.

SOUNDS

I use this guitar with custom built Peters amplifiers, which are kind of a cross between a Peavey 5150 and high gain Marshall/VHT with a little Boogie thrown in, a VHT Sig-X and an Egnater MOD 50. The amps were paired with an Avatar 4x12 that had Celestion G12h -30's and a Splawn 4x12 with Governor/ManOWar speaker combo, a Earcandy Buzzbomb 2x12 w/ Scholz speakers and a Mojotone 3x12 w/ Celestion CL-80's.

I usually go for a nice thick Jerry Cantrell AIC tone, to use with my modern rock/metal band. This particular guitar and pickup combo is very nice across the whole sound spectrum. It gives an even heavy tone and good cleans. Suits my style of music very well. The pickups/sounds stay defined even under high gain.

I also use this guitar in a few cover bands that I've played in which includes songs from The Rolling Stones, Kings of Leon to RHCP, Poison and System of a Down. It does well with all styles.

This guitar has very nice lead tones and nice tight rhythm tones that cut through well. Acoustically it sounds a little bass heavy but very even when plugged in.
I have gotten compliments on the tone from other musicians when I've played live with it.


OVERALL OPINION

If this guitar would have had stainless steel frets (which I use exclusively now) I would have kept it longer than the three years I did. I did think about having ss frets installed on it but I thought it might ruin the fabulous tone it had as it was.

Overall this was a great workhorse of a guitar of a guitar (in a good way). Had nice weight, sounded great and the neck carve was a dream to play on.
A good thing about the satin finishes of PRS - they are tough and take wear and tear without showing much damage.

Value for the used price was a great deal! Knowing what I know now I would have made the same choice every time with this guitar. It was my second PRS (of many) and it was the second longest one I held onto before getting spoiled by SS frets.
I have owned many guitars and had a number of years where I would buy, try and flip, which enabled me to have many guitars around to try out.
This PRS standard SC is ranked right up there with the best of them in overall satisfaction. This guitar has beat out Ibanez RG's, Charvel/Jackson's, Gibsons, TA's and PRS's that have been in my collection - and I was able to sell them off.

Only a lack of ss frets lower the overall score from 10 to 9.
