TonePilot says:

A nice looking guitar that doesn’t follow the crowd. Wish it was a longer scale though.

Cass says:

Any thoughts on the absence of a forearm cut? D’ya think it would have helped? The flat front face does look striking!

Matt Gilbert says:

That’s got some mojo

Marcel van der Linden says:

I was at that gig the day after you got this guitar, and to be honest you were beaming with joy over how it played and I think that was reflected in the tone and playing that night. Maybe the GT100 ver2 you had it going through also had something to do with it. The combo sure sounded great to my ears at the gig, and it seemed it was a tough chase later on in the night for your PRS to keep up …!!

Gerry Loughran says:

Sweet…got extra’s as standard…sounds great..that DSL rocks

Boxcar Stewart says:

I checked out their website right after your unboxing live stream. Unless Fender starts making their offsets for lefties in the MIM range, Pure Salem will definitely get my money. Awesome looking guitars!

Bigfoot in Germany says:

I like it Shane!!! Checked out the other models on the website, I think this is my fav. Some of them are simply downright weird, but regardless, not available here in Germany yet. Maybe if I order direct from Miami, but then I get hit on customs charges and the VAT. Puts this up around $1400. Maybe I’ll just wait til I get back to the US…. Bob in Germany

Mick Brenton says:

Very nice! Do they come in right handed?

Larry Lynch says:

You ve spelled duesenberg wrong

Ben Hackett says:

Beautiful guitar with great tones at the right price.
A shame I’ve blown my guitar budget this year. My credit card (& marriage) can’t take another guitar purchase!

Todd Flowers says:

Damn that is one of the best guitar demo’s I’ve seen Shane ! That thing sounds killer mate ! Thanks ! 🙂

DMSProduktions says:

RAISE the neck p/up, it will bring out more treble.

DMSProduktions says:

Red rocket, red rocket!!!

Guitar ocd says:

They’re Brave to try to find new shapes. But it seems guitar players are not receptive to it. You look at all the performance videos on YouTube very rare do you ever see something different. A lot of people have attempted it. Unfortunately it seems guitar players like the same old shapes.

Terry's GG&G says:

That body looks LOOONNNGGGG !! But I really do like the look of it !! 🙂

Tibor Risko says:

Coolest paint job ever!


She’s a looker for sure. Lovely. Great playing too mate. Sweet geet. I wish more guitars would come with matching headstocks & locking tuners.. They just look boss man! Sounds awesome.

steven van rensburg says:

Awesome guitar! Your playing is flawless.

Chinaguitarsceptic says:

Love the tones mate. Shape and colour are stunning too!

JH Scofield says:

That thing is gorgeous!

Jon Oz says:

Awesome vibe, I love it. You’re right – the pups sound great!

Greg Dayley says:

Simply beautiful guitar. I think to were pretty dang lucky to pick one out of the list and get one that not only looks beautiful but plays like a champ. But what really matters is that you love it. Thats what gets the guitar in your hands to play over and over!

Mark Phillips says:

I saw your unboxing episode a couple of weeks ago and instantly fell for this guitar. Then I saw your Facebook video soon after, and today this one. So there is no question now…I’m getting one!

Old Guy says:

Awesome demo!!! Love when you play the clean stuff. Tasty! How would you compare this sound wise to the Reverend guitars that also have a similar pick up configuration?

IrishWolf says:

this is the model im getting for christmas and now im even more excited. wowzers!!! what a beast
