Yeah, I've played a PRS. I play mostly metal which is why I'm a HUGE Ibanez fan. (which tone is important, so your comment is off base since the specific tone relates in a different way) That said, if you play anything else, you need a different guitar which is why I also own a Les Paul which a VERY versatile. (even playing metal)
PRS have great tone overall, but its the flexibility of sound that I find less attractive than mixing both an Ibanez an a Les Paul.
Believe me, I'm not bashing a PRS. I'm just saying that a PRS doesn't fit what I'm looking for better than combining a Les Paul and an Ibanez.
Lets face it. Les Paul's have a sound that is all their own and a PRS cannot play Slayer (or any other crunch metal) anywhere near a Jackson or an Ibanez. (or even a Les Paul for that matter)
The only reason I take an Ibanez over a Jackson is the neck.
Of course, the ability to play crunch metal and everything else are like owning a car and a dump truck. They aren't the same thing and you can never get them to do the same thing in the same fashion. (ie, the dump truck (ibanez) can get you from point A to point B, but it's beastly. A normal car will get you from point A to point B, but it won't haul 50k lbs of dirt.
For me a PRS is beautiful, but doesn't carry it's price tag. Then again, I'm not a musician. I play as a hobby only.

There is a good chance that you don't like me, but there is a better chance that I don't care.
If I'm not insulting you, I'm probably not aware that you exist.
