Okay, the question has been asked - if we were to ask Shawn to put the gears in motion to make PRS Forum-marked merch, what would you want to see?

Multiple choice allowed, votes are private.

Maybe the mods can sticky this.

The real fun begins when we try to decide what the branding looks like!!!

I remind forum members that whatever we ask PRS to make needs to be international-ship friendly. BRW, therefor should be Off of our list.

Picks were a last second thought. They seemed easy to do, and there were some w/the PS eagle (they may still be available - I haven't looked). To be honest, picks were probably one of the least likely things for me to get (gig bags rank slightly lower for me).

I voted but also want to mention that if we cannot get a decent key chain/lanyard from PRS proper maybe we can get a forum one?

also maybe the forum guitar strap is the paisley one we talked about a while back?

I voted gig bag and truss rod cover. I think the TRC will be the runaway winner.

I want a wooden key fob. Perhaps some scrap wood like the ones used for staining exercises on Experience Day. A nice stained key fob, perhaps with the Eagle inlaid in it...so I can either attach it to my keys..or to my guitar cases to identify what's inside.

Like the ones they made from old anniversary fretboards?

Yes...those would be great...I'd buy 2 dozen, if that would get the initial order going. And they should be offered in Private Stock stains! When shall I send in my order?

I like that idea.

Or a PS Eagle. But without the member name on the shoulders.

Traditionally, a letter jacket has a logo over the heart, the team name on the back, sometimes with logo, and the player's name on the right chest.

But other than the Maryland or PRS logo, I'd keep it as plain as possible.

Personally, I think I'd feel a little weird wearing a letter jacket with a big splashy name on the back, plus a logo, etc., as an adult. OK, more than a little weird. A lot weird.

I like the Maryland flag or PRS eagle idea, it could say PRS somewhere, and leave the rest up to the individual.

There are lots of places that deal in letter jackets that could customize what's on the jacket for individuals, including sew-on letters, custom stitching, etc., and people could arrange for that themselves, according to their tastes.

At some point in the past, PRS had an all-leather jacket with the original Customs sewn on the back, and something on the front, but I don't remember the details. It looked pretty cool!

You know, I thought of another idea besides the gig bag, and it could employ the same flag logo, and be useful:

Lots of members have Artist and PS cases, or Paisley cases, standard hard cases, etc., and prefer to use them instead of gig bags. But walk in and out of a gig or session in really bad weather with a case, and the guitar can wake up wet, the case can get pretty nasty fast, etc., and let's face it, these are expensive cases to replace.

What about an insulated case cover sporting the PRS or Maryland logo? It protects the guitar from the weather, and the insulation buffers temperature changes when taking the guitar into and out of cold or hot weather. Why not? It'd be especially useful if your guitar is nitro, which does tend to crack with sudden temperature changes.

Could probably even be obtained for the acoustics!

What if you had the Maryland flag on the front, and the eagle on the back?

I priced one of these out, in 100% leather with leather collar and zipper (instead op snap-buttons). Even without the Maryland flag on the front (just used the color scheme) was pricey.

We'd have to do them in a larger quantity to make them affordable.

I've been thinking about this and the Forum guitar and I don't think we'll settle on a specific model.

Now, having some sort of forum symbol on the truss rod cover (winning the poll right now) would make any of your guitars a Forum guitar, right?

I've been doodling around for a while and came up with a concept of using the "fg" abbreviation to form a hollowbody f-hole. It's still in the sketch phase, but if you guys liked the idea, I could perfect the design and Shawn could hopefully make it happen...

Interesting idea...your sketch not only uses the initials to resemble the "f" hole...but it is vaguely reminiscent of a "G Clef" in musical staffs. That being said....my uncorrected vision is -750, so take it from who it comes. :laugh:

I was originally thinking of shaping the letter g like the upside down g clef, but it was all too much. It is suggested not to put too many ideas into logo design, one is said to be enough...
