Nice DGT! Congrats. I was expecting a Silver Sky when i clicked on this thread.
I ordered one but didn’t get in the first round...so I got my money back and bought this. I’ll be getting a Silver Sky when they start popping up used.

I should have posted this originally...I'll add it above but this is my only other electric guitar at the moment. Bought it in December 2017 and it's made me a believer in a brand I never thought I'd own.

That happened to me a few years ago (2015). I bought a McCarty on a bit of a whim. I was actually searching for something completely different (24 frets, high output, trem) but after demoing the McCarty I kept being drawn back to it. I left the store without it because it wasn't what I wanted, but that night I realized the reason I kept being drawn back was that there was something special about it, so I went back the next day and bought it.

It's been my #1 ever since. Sold 4 Gibsons and used the money to buy a couple more PRS.

I’m planning on doing a comparison video soon but I thought I’d add this in for anyone considering a PRS: the CU22/P22 and DGT are similar in some respects but overall are very different guitars. The P22 has 57/08 pickups which are a very chimey PAF type pickup. I LOVE it for neck pickup sounds both chording and bluesy leads. The bridge is well balanced with the neck and for early breakup rhythm or parts that need to really stand out in the mix it’s awesome.

The DGT in comparison is darker and more muscular. The big frets give it a different feel. Overall the DGT asks you to fight it a bit more while the P22 is one of the smoothest playing instruments I’ve ever had - perhaps even more so than Anderson or Suhr custom guitars I’ve owned.

In general I’d say if I’m going for a cleaner, more refined tone I’ll reach for the P22 and if I’m sticking to the bridge or really going for a big rock feel I’ll use the DGT.
