It’s PRS’s take on a Dynasonic. I don’t think it’s an exact clone, although I’ve never played a guitar with a Dynasonic so I have no basis for comparison. My understanding is that it’s modeled after the Dynasonic but with some tweaks.

@xtcclassic It looked great before but now with that new pick guard it's really perfect. Love that upgrade!

Thanks! It’ll look even better once I find the right knobs and replace the truss rod cover with a rosewood one.

I forgot to post a pic of the Vela in its final state. I replaced the knobs, the pickup switch cover, the truss rod cover, and the bridge pickup (went with a TV Jones Power’Tron). This is such a great guitar. PRS should be killing it with this guitar but I’m almost glad they’re not. I like having a killer guitar that almost no one else has.  8)

Oh yeah [mention]xtcclassic [/mention]  You made it look even better. Dig the knobs and TV Jones pick ups are amazing so I’m sure it sounds even better now

@xtcclassic  Really love your PRS Vela…such a cool design!  I’ll bet it plays like butter.

I have been enjoying this thread and all the great guitars/gear for a long time. I’ve been physically laid up for a bit and couldn’t really hold a guitar for a while, much less play one. I’ve finally gotten to the point I can play again, thankfully, and thought it was past time to post some guitar pics! I thought I’d post some acoustics first because they don’t seem to get as much love as the electrics. This is my 1947 Martin 00-18, all original. It’s warm and woody, the perfect couch guitar for me.  I’ll try to get some pics of electrics soon.

Beautiful acoustic! Is that a parlor or shorter scale one? It looks like a perfect size to play and travel with. Also shoutout to Martins because they’re made in PA!

Thanks!  It is short-scale (24.9) and considered “grand concert” size.  It has great volume and handles about everything well. It had a neck reset years ago but the action has stayed low and it’s a joy to play.

Also, I’m a big fan of old Martins…they are tough to beat!

A well loved guitar usually plays just as well! I should take some photos of my collection sometime. Got some goodies to show off

@Fadez  definitely post some pics of your collection!  I’ll get some more pics up soon as well.

Also, I love old guitars with patina…just like I love a pair of well-worn IH jeans. Patina=Love in my book 😁
