Sweet! I've never played a PRS amp before but the Sonzera and the Archon are on my list.

Were you looking for a Sonzera or did you stumble across it?

I was selling a Supro 1624 and A guy offered to trade me the Sonzera for it. I did my homework on the Sonzera and decided to go ahead and make the trade. The Supro sounded good but had to be really loud to get a great sound out of it. I liked the layout of the Sonzera better and so far like the sounds I'm getting too. There is a tiny bit of buzz with the amp, but it can be dialed out. So it will work for recording. the Supro was a good amp but did not have reverb built in like the PRS does. So I'm liking the Sonzero better.

There is a good review at Premier Guitar by Joe C. on your new amp; sounds like a winner (boutique quality performance at a very modest price) with beautiful cleans, articulation and touch sensitivity w/2 EL34s for a blend with Marshall. Love the maple neck Tele, thanks for sharing.

It is a great combo, the Sonzera amp sounds great with that guitar, much better than the Tele....something about the wiring, it just sounds cleaner and more pronounced....I am so glad I bought the PRS guitar !!!! Here's a better pic of the guitar.....
