    That's it, saga musical instruments. Looks like the fret King is a non starter, seller listed with make an offer and then tells me it's full price only. Anyway, seen a prs spalted maple top, never had a prs before so maybe give one a try. If I don't get to play often at least it will look pretty.

    LOL, I had the same thing just over a year ago when I bought an Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom GX. Had to have it so bought it. Sounded bloody lovely through my then valve head/cab.

    Fat neck on the prs I had. Couldn't get on with it. Did look pretty though

    Im about to give my cheap acoustic guitar to the charity shop or local busker. I cant get two chords out of it as there seems no coordination in my fingers. Im on lesson one on YT and I cant even switch between the two starter chords or get the tips of my fingers not to interfere with the other strings...thats just on a two finger chord

    Ive a whole new respect for guitar players. They make it look easy and its the instrument I wanted to be able to play. I may try and persevere but its not looking good

There's no guarantee I won't be tempted to offer more though.

    I know that feeling, thought I would never manage a (barre) Cm but now it's easy-peasy, some simple looking chords still trip me up though e.g. the simple Dm using first three frets. Small hands doesn't help - by the way I have a small scale classical for sale if anyone needs one it's 628mm. Details by PM.

    Ah, I had a Gibson ES175 with a fat neck, couldn't get on with that either and it looked gorgeous. Perhaps I should just pay the asking price of the fret King and have done with it.

    Yep. Check the neck profile on the PRS
