Paul,

Thank you so much for all you do. The ways you motivate me are far too long to list. I am grateful to have PRS guitars in my life and count you and your company as my friends.

BTW - when I picked up my goldtop this morning from tender PTC attentions, I left a bottle for you and your wife. There is another bottle for the PTC section and some chocolate. - be sure to steal some of their chocolates...

Mr. Smith,

I want to thank you and everyone else who works at or with the company to make what it what it is; The Best in The Business.

I thank those who work to make this forum possible. Like everything else that carries the PRS brand, it's in a class by itself.

To my fellow members here, thank you for what you post, what you don't, and for letting me be a part of it. It's a privilege to be involved here, and I hope we're able to enjoy it for years to come.

May you all have safe holidays, and a Happy New Year.

Thank you, Paul - for the instruments, for the forum, for the people you've brought together, and for the passion and inspiration. For the friends I've made here, on BaM and VR. For Experience and the music and artists it's exposed me to. For the cases of "oxy" that I can turn to when I need to, and even better, when I want to. And for the look on my wife's face when she saw me at Experience this year (her first time there) and said, "No wonder you love this".

Merry Christmas!

Thank You Paul for your passion in making the best playing electrics I have ever played. It took me a while to get there but I am a PRS guy and will only be PRS for electrics from now on. I had a SE Singlecut a few years back and it played better and had better quality than an 02 LP Standard I had. I sold it( wish I had it back) s at the time I ws not using electric much. Being a worship leader and guitar player at my church I have searched for a guitar that could do both electric and acoustic tones well. While I like Taylor acoustics and own them I could never like anything their T5 did. always a compromise. Also could not have both tones going at same time. I know you had the hollow bodies but just not a hollow bdy guy. When I play electric I want the tone only a solid body can give. Well the P22 was like an answered prayer! I run it through a PRS SE20 amp. they sound awesome together. I use a LR Baggs Para DI before running to PA on the piezo. the Para DI just makes the piezo POP! I can fool people thinking I am playing an actual acoustic. the fit, finish and feel is hard to describe. Feels like I am finally HOME! ( BTW I love the 25" scale!! )

Thank you and your team for making what I feel are some of the best instruments in the world. Ya I spent more than I thought I wanted to but do not regret it one bit as this p22 I have is worth every penny!

the day I brought it home! Black Gold wrap around

All my best for a Happy New Year.

12/21 is my birthday, I'll get to that in a minute...

A couple handfuls of years ago I had sold all my gear and stopped playing guitar due to the financial strain of raising my family and my struggling business. Depressing is not nearly a strong enough word. However, we persevered and with sacrifice and hard work, things got better. The money problems eased and the love affair with guitar began to rekindle...

I was lucky enough to have been introduced to a company up in Maryland that made some fantastic instruments. It started with an SE and finally led to a MiM model. Playing those guitars has provided me with a renewed sense of self and immense moments of joy over the past few years...

This year on my birthday I got a couple sets of clear lampshade knobs that replaced the black ones on my Frost Blue Metallic DGT Standard. Not quite the 12/21/12, end of civilization as we know it, birthday born on date NGD I was dreaming about this year but it did get "Emma" out of her case and played like it was the last day on earth as I remembered all those years I spent without guitars in my life.

Hopefully, the ones I have are here to stay this time, because I can't imagine a life without guitar, particularly PRS Guitars. So, I would like to say a big thank you to Paul and everyone else at PRS Guitars for those moments of joy you help all of us achieve.

Can't wait to see what you come up with in 2013 and beyond...

Thanks Paul and all at PRS guitars. Not only have you built guitars for people to earn a living, not only do you build guitars that are the envy of the guitar playing and building fraternity, you built my bucket list guitar and you provide inspiration and dreams for us to build on! Thanks for providing this great forum to share our dreams. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Thanks for creating the instruments you do. Thanks for still being as passionate as ever about your brand. And thanks for employing so many wonderful people - some of who I happily call friends.

So yeah, thanks!
