Wow! Freeblues, thanks for this thorough and honest evaluation!

I've been following this thread closely and anxiously awaiting your report, as well as those from other participants. I was in Eric Schoenberg's shop 2 weeks ago and he pulled a newly-received PV out of its box, saying he just got a few units shipped to him. He was running a ToneRite on another guitar, but his explanation about how this unit worked and differed from TR, got me intrigued by this product.

$99 is a nominal price for this appreciable improvement in tone and playability you describe...

I am curious as to the long term effects of the PV vs the TR.

Eric didn't say which unit he preferred. He literally pulled it fresh out of the box that day while I was visiting his shop. I know he's a fan of the TR, but from our conversation, I gather that he hadn't tried the PV yet.

Yeah, me too.

I thought the TR treatment benefits sort of faded over time, or perhaps I got used to the tone and wanted a bit more. Can't really say. I did not much use the TR after my initial treatments, so it's likely I did not get the full benefit.

My plan with the PV is to see how the guitars sound down the road. I will say that as of today I have found no fall off in my initial impressions.

Eric received a primeVibe industry sample in November. His associate James thereafter emailed that they were seasoning a guitar and "excited" about the results, with an order for six kits, which we shipped 11 Dec per our shipping label history. I am immensely pleased and excited about Eric's order. I visited his shop and had the sweet pleasure of meeting him. One could hardly ask for a humbler professional, all the more satisfying when one considers his position and stature in the acoustic guitar world. A reliable well-connected M.I. source (principal at one of N.A.'s largest distributors) said Eric's endorsement was a turning point for ToneRite.

I fail to see whatever benefits you might experience would fade, unless you stop playing the guitar. These processes- one of which I've experienced and found useful, the other which I hope to try out someday- are, essentially, accelerated break-in devices. They do what you do (when you do that voodoo that you do so well), only more rapidly. Cue: good vibrations. There are other processes out there- molecular mumbo and cellular jumbo- that are an entirely different concept, and topic. I think vibration works (batteries not included; void were prohibited by law; some parts are edible; no salesman will call; report to the ER after four hours....). tom

Yet it is a belief among certain people that if you don't play a guitar after a period of time it will go back "asleep".

bump to top....just curious to hear reviews from other participants of this trial/study/research project...

I'm intrigued by this product and was encouraged by FreeBlues' initial review.

Thanks.

My trial time is almost up, and I've got a mando and guitar treated that I'll review and share in a couple of days.
