The 24-fret Standard with its long neck (oddly the smoothest of the trio), vibrato, different pickups and selections gives a modern but highly versatile flavour.

There a little more grind from the HFS, less vintage-like wood if you like, and more power from the Vintage Bass.

There's contrast between the full on humbuckers and the single-coil splits sound a little spiky, but arguably they give a little extra edge for effected tones.

Judging by the endless number of artists choosing decidedly un-posh old guitars to ply their craft these days, PRS's Satin Series seems well timed.

In these all-mahogany formats they not only revisit, in spirit, Paul Reed Smith's hand-made pre-factory guitars before he started utilising curly maple but also one of his tonal benchmarks: the late fifties/early sixties all-mahogany Les Paul Juniors, Specials and SGs.
