My name is Frankie McGovern [I am from
Glasgow in Scotland, I had decided that it was time to buy a top
flight guitar again ,so I had my eyes drawn to the PRS line up and
falling for the hype and seeing all that beautiful workmanship and
lovely wood and thinking that this is as good as they get,
One day while trawling the web I simply searched on the word
guitar and found myself on your web site not thinking much about
getting one of your guitars but more for the writing and the cool

he sold it to you as used.
My low cost Korean models compete easily
with the USA PRS guitars.
You should see the USA ones they start at
$1,395.00 (Much Nicer)
The Quicksilver is on a whole different
planet. PRS could not ever hope to seriously compete with the
They are a huge company with huge overhead,
We are a small company with almost no overhead.
That is why our prices are so low !!
I'm glad you liked the guitar we have sold over 10.000 of them at
this time and we only have had one guy unhappy (He was only
unhappy because someone told him untrue things about the guitar)
