I'm one of many ( I assume ) that has ordered a 408 . My version is gonna be a hog in charcoal finish with a rosewood neck and stoptail. The anticipation is killing me. :call:

:408:I'm just curious to what everyone else is wanting on their versions

I'm (im)patiently waiting for an Amber Black 408 mt. lol
Thinking about a hog stop tail with a rosewood neck next. I agree with both aduayer and Hans about the 408 piezo idea , that would be very cool.

I have a charcoal burst flame maple ten top with trem coming in.....with a pattern thin rosewood neck....! So psyched, although one thing makes me nervous.....some charcoal bursts look 'yellowed' and some are black and grey.....really hope mine comes in without the yellow jaundiced look ......

+1 on the P408, but it'd kinda be like putting a couple of eggs in a basket...

I'm really interested in how a 408 ST will sound with a RW neck? Has there a non-maple topped PRS offered with a RW neck before?

Oh and natural, it'll look hot in natural!

Yea I'm really curious to see waht the standard is going to sound like with the rosewood neck . Has anybody gotten ETA's. Getting tired of standing at the door waiting like a little kid at christmas. Plus its starting to get cold out ( Oh yea I guess I could stand inside ):dontknow:

Alan,

This is the one that you got from the EXP. if I'm correct. Is the tone darker on it because of the neck ? Beautiful guitar.:rock:

Thanks - that's the one.

I haven't played a non-RW version, so I can't speak as to how it would compare to another 408ST. I will say this - it does have a snap to it. Maybe clarity would be a better word.

I'm hoping to do some recording in the next couple weeks with it, so I should be able to post some samples soon.

Welcome and congrats! To post pictures you first need to host the photo somewhere - I like to use Tinyurl.com for single photos or Flickr.com if I want to store a lot of photos. Once you upload the photo, you post the photo link in between image tags, which are [ i m g] url [ / i m g ], but without the spaces. Sorry its hard to explain. Hope that helps!

Mine arrived last week. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to play it live through an amp yet. Playing it through my Mustang Floor at home, I will say that the single coils are quite strong and there certainly is a variety of sounds here. Nice not to have the volume drop when you switch to single coil. Love the Trampas Green finish!

This one (the one on his leg) is waiting for me to pick up at my dealer after a successful negotiation that wrested it from Paul. I heard it played by both Paul and Nicky Moroch through a bunch of amps and it sounded great:

Pernambuco with a coco (I think) fingerboard. An amazing sounding guitar with a cool history. A serious addition to my stable.

Thanks Matt. I have played it live a couple of times now and it has not disappointed. I am not normally a believer in one-guitar-does-it-all philosophy but I have to say that this one covers quite a bit of ground. Lovin' it!

I've never liked the 513 and that one guitar covering so many sounds is something I never liked, until.... I got my hands on a 408 during the Experience. there's a Std with rosewood neck on my wish list.

Something like that!

On the dealer's eBay listing, I made an offer. I got some sort of error message or something that made me think that the offer was below the limit they set to automatically refuse the offer. So I moved on and forgot about it, and kept on searching and thinking about it.

Then the next day, I got an email saying the offer was accepted and another email with the invoice.

I was like "hmm, I guess I just bought a 408!" LOL... :D

That he went to do the dealer demo night, and some guy was relentless about wanting his guitar. So he finally surrendered and gave up the guitar. ;)

Well done!

Too funny. I kind of did the same thing. I made an offer that was not accepted until a week later. I received an email saying from eBay that I owed a seller money. At first I thought my account was hacked, but no it was me. :)

Yup, I learned that from yankeebulldog. He is the KING of getting sweet deals off eBay, including the nicest R9 I have ever played, at a price that blew me away. (Still have Dibs on that one!)

Awesome!! Just read the specs on Brian's site - Pernambuco Neck?!? You lucky dog, those are only available now on Collection Guitars!

This is basically a Violin Guitar without the Celtic Knots, and with 408 pickups.

Also I just noticed this has the pickup config of the Collection IV, a Bass pickup in the Treble position, with the Treble wind. A very unique guitar!!

Built with a Pattern Neck, Honduran rosewood fretboard, Mammoth Ivory birds, a Sterling Silver headstock eagle, and a stop tail. I am very fortunate that Paul was gracious enough to part with it.

A truly unique guitar, and a wonderful addition to my herd. Thanks Paul and all the folks who had a hand in the creation of, and then my acquisition of this guitar.
