A while back, I bounced an idea off of Hans for a (hopefully) fun thread.

Here's how it works. I post pics of a PRS. I reserve the right to alter the pics by cropping, blurring, distorting, changing colors, etc. I may not tell you if a pic has been altered in any way. Initially, I don't see me manipulating the pics much except maybe cropping and/or masking various parts of a pic which would give you too much info too soon.

Your job is to identify the model and year of the guitar. Please don't shotgun your guesses by listing the catalog in your responses. Make intelligent, deductive guesses only, please. Feel free to agree with someone else's guess or strike out on your own.

*Important, you must say why you think it is a particular model and year.

I'll post new pics from time to time until the guitar is correctly identified and then we'll start over with another guitar.

There is no prize, just the pleasure of playing if your are inclined...

Up first is this one. The color has NOT been altered.

2012 P22 in FBM. The carve of the top just hits me that way.

OK - these pics should nail it down... There is enough info here to even get close to the year....

The first one who posts the correct full model name, year and color name wins... well, nothing in particular.

Experience 2007 Custom 24 Warp Speed Blue.

WINNER! WINNER! CHICKEN DINNER! ... well if you buy some chicken and get someone to cook it....

Honorable mention to Markie and Shawn.

It is indeed a 2007 Experience CU24 in the Dupont Hot Hues Warp Speed Blue. PRS made 400 of these, 50 in each of four colors: ‘Calypso Green Metallic’, ‘Raging Ruby’, ‘Champagne Fizz’ and ‘Warp Speed Blue’. So, that makes this guitar one of 50. Not exceedingly rare, but not the run of the mill either.

The next game is already posted here: part deux (http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthread.php?2286-What-Is-It-part-deux) Can you beat Mike, Markie and Shawn to the ID?
