I wonder what the new proprietary finish is on Paul's Guitar?

Maybe a version of the V12? I don't know much about finishes, but I bet it's more of a softer finish that lets it breath. Or maybe thinner?? I really don't know. It's gorgeous though. I bet it just sings.

Is that it or is that just what they're talking about right now. I don't see any new SE's yet. Not really an SE guy, but was hoping the Pete Loeffler signature was a reality ;)

I wonder what the new proprietary finish is on Paul's Guitar?

I got to noodle around a little bit on his personal guitar while at the WWG clinic a few months back. Had a really thin semi gloss or satin finish on it. Almost like no finish at all. Played quite exceptional and was great for the neck. I'm wondering if these will be similar. Though the picture on the site definitely looks glossy.

Artist DGT for me.

Picture my version: natural finish on back of the body, natural "binding" on metallic green opaque maple top, hybrid hardware, IRW neck, Braz board! Oh yes!!

Is there any info on the switching positions on the Brent Mason? The middle pos in particular, hoping it's like the CU22 soapy, and it selects the outside PUs instead of just the middle PU

CANNOT wait to see / hear a demo of these beauties!

I loved my Soapbar Maple II and stupidly sold it. Wanted another ever since. The black one in the pic just looks sexy as hell!

Some of these new models look INSANE (that's right paul's guitar...).

One question maybe someone can answer, but why is there a distinct lack of SC's (hardtail specifically) with a true wide thin/ pattern thin neck? I'm just not a fan of the pattern reg finish and like a thinner neck.

The strippers were reg, the 245's were (and still are), you could find the odd sc250 but not since the tremonti 1's have I seen one. I don't want to buy a US tremonti just to block the trem.

I am however incredibly excited about the SE 7 string.....

For 2014, maybe an SE bass? :p

It's been out of the lineup before. Then they did the McCarty II (active electronics!) and eventually brought the regular McCarty back.

The SC58, earlier SCs and Stripper have had a Pattern neck, similar to the old Wide-Fat, not a regular neck. I believe the same spec is on the 245, according to the website.

So no more Modern Eagle? I'm guessing that the Paul's Guitar is the new flagship of the production line then?....or something to hold us over to the MEV? =D

01-11-2013, 04:17 PM
Paul's Guitar IS the MEV I think....

That's why it's not called a modern Eagle ;)

The Modern Eagle was always Paul's guitar project - it was the guitar he took with him round the world to clinics. I believe he plays pernambuco necked PS models mostly now, but for a production run mahogany is a closer substitute.

An Artist pack SC 245 will get you close! I think the only difference would be no binding.

CU22 w/57/08s in the Lemondrop finish would be sweet.

Looks like SpotLight Music put in a request to PRS for a small run of 25 on these 2012 models only?

Wow, that run genuinley bums me out. I've been dying for them to do a limited run of special tops in US production ever since the run of 40 Burl Tops :(

Beautiful looking guitar!

Kind of wish the back of the neck of mine was finished clear so I could see the maple.

Looks like they did a 25 run on the SE Santana too.
