Rather than a combined wish list guitar, maybe we could work off an existing new model--say the new Paul's guitar, and create a special PRS Forum Edition. It could have the custom TRC that someone mentioned above, and be specially signed and numbered. Perhaps with a choice of 1/2 special colors. I think that might justify a run, a la a dealer run. I would try to buy one.
When ordering lunch for a large group of people, it is always easier to ask what the WON'T eat. :)
I love the idea of a 24.5" scale DC22 with Piezo and a pair of narrow 408's. Make it Vintage Yellow with just a hint of Amber added to the stain (so it looks aged) with a unique inlay (or no inlay at all) and I'd be on it like a hobo on a hot dog.
Did someone say nitro? :)
Neck carve would still have to be an option.
I wish I could join you guys for this er..."lunch"...but I just "ate".
Love to hang out and see how this turns out, though!
deal breakers for the sake of making this happen.
I think the piezo would be too much, don't like it. 24.5 scale and DC aren't my cup of tea, but as JFB said: "I am willing let go of my other deal breakers for the sake of making this happen.". I also think Mike 7 Eriza Verde Burst could be an interesting option for a color
How about a solid color KL33 type guitar?
The trem needs a steelblock for that upper mid sizzle :).25 " neck please!Vintage yellow is so classic PRS.I like Sergios idea with a bolt-on neck.Keep costs down :).Signature switching.How about same specs on a few different bodies(including a bolt-on custom ala CE or Hiland)?
make 'em any color as long as they're opaque...
Yup....we are real close to a consensus here, fer sure! :p
Maybe the official Forum TRC was the best idea after all. ;)
what about a version of Paul's guitar, but with different inlay and rosewood neck? trem or stop tail as an option. and I insist that Mike7 Verde Burst would make it even more one of a kind. just saying
I'd think we'd have more luck obtaining a majority opinion than a consensus.
Korina DGT Standard 245 w/moons in natural nitro matte finish with trem, Grissom bridge pickup, 59/09 neck pickup, Wide-Fat(or pattern equivolent) neck profile...
This keeps it reasonable on the price, and creates a tonal workhorse that has some uniqueness as well...
Options are nickel hardware with clear lampshades and creme pickup surrounds, or gold hardware with amber lampshades... and black pickup surrounds...
