Mine has been submitted. Looking forward to the care package arriving!

I asked for 10-52 but pretty sure they don't exist (D'Addario EXL-140 player).

Is there an electronic (email) way we can do this rather then going through the pain of sending letters?

Thank you for the awesome promotion!!!

I saw this linked on my local music shops site who ordered my SE Santana for me.
Just gotta wait next week when it shows up, copy the receipt, and send the info in.
Very cool deal.

Does anyone know if you can use a photocopy of your receipt? I don't like to send originals as a rule.

Mine was a reprint, not so much a photocopy but I think it would stand to reason thay if there's an issue, PRS could contact your dealer.

Anyone receive their kit yet?
Wondering how long it takes from the time you mail the into.
I sent in my receipt last Saturday along with my warranty card too.

I mailed in my reciept almost 3 weeks ago. Haven't heard anything yet.

I am thinking maybe they are waiting until the promotion is over so they can tally up how many kits need to be put together, then ship them out.

I sent mine off July 2nd, and still have not received it. PRS says 4-6 weeks. I`ve heard others received theirs in two-three weeks. So who knows...

Well?

It was MY screw up apparently in this case, as I purchased two days prior to the promo starting, so I didn't qualify. No harm, no foul....after all, I've won TWO free guitars from PRS, so I'm nothing but grateful to them as it is!!

Now make a play for the #8 pickup I'm giving away. All it takes is a photo of playing one! You DO own a PRS guitar, right? :D

Chicken-sh1t cop-out rejected.

I've been to your castle, King Ang... I know better.

Besides... no one can "hear" you playing in a photo. You can pose any way you like.

I can certainly understand that, but my concern isn't when I get the package, but that they got my paperwork. I don't want to have someone tell me in September that they never received it, it's too late, your outta luck and so on...

Hi newfmp3- we answer every email we receive so I can only assume your emails were getting caught in the spam filter. I'm glad to hear your goodies arrived though!

Is the cable that was shipped with the Thank You package the same one in this thread?
http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthread.php?1386-Are-the-silent-PRS-guitar-cables-no-longer-available

I have several Mogami cables, and my patch cables for the pedal board are Mogami.
Never seen a noiseless cable like this 18' one included, it is very nice, and has the Neutrik ends on it too.
I noticed the red end that goes into the guitar has a sliding thing on the plug, that is what stops the signal when you pull the jack out, very cool.
Never seen this before, and you would think Mogami and others would do the same.

No luck finding these cables with Google, I just get the regular PRS ones.
https://www.google.com/search?q=prs+signature+series+cable&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Hey, found one.
I switched Google's search to show pictures, and down the page was one with the red end.

Will these also be sold directly from the PRS site, or do you go through a dealer?

Corey - the one they sent me was the ACC-7001-25R - never had a right-angle cable before, but now I do :)

Also, did I mention HOLY STRINGS!

If they had the new SECU24s in stock sooner I would have done it again...

CoreyT

No right angles on my cord, and I think mine goes for around $50 or so that I got.
Did you have the Thanks You package for an SE model, or the Signature Limited that is in your sig?

My Mogamis have a straight end on one end, and a right angle on the other end.

CantankerousCarl
08-25-2012, 08:04 PM
Mine was for the Siggy, so sounds like there were different cables for the SE/Maryland packs. Says they are made by VanDamme. Helluva deal either way.

Shawn@PRS
08-25-2012, 08:05 PM
The "Thank You" package includes a PRS cable. Some have straight jacks, some have right angle jacks, some have silent jacks and some normal jacks.

All PRS cables are available from your local dealer or directly from PRS.

Got my package today - other than some spillage of the fretboard cleaner that soaked the corner of the shipping box (despite being in a plastic bag inside) I'm a happy camper! Maybe now I'll change strings more than once a year...

I maiiled my paperwork on July 7th. I have not received mine yet. I asked for .009 - .042 strings. I hope the Thank You Package arrives soon. I'm ready for a string change.

I got an SE Acoustic Thank You Pack, and it had one angled end on my cable, also made by Van Damme. I dig it... a lot more supple then my braided Dimarzios!

The strings were also D'Addario, which I was surprised to see. I figured they would be PRS branded!

CoreyT
09-04-2012, 03:14 PM
My strings said PRS on the package, but I did not look closely to see if they were made my anyone else.
