    I get the symbolism. I get the desire to own a rarity. But, it is still another guitar that I probably would not play and would have to eventually cull - perhaps at a loss....

    Yep....

    As would an 89 sig in VY....I wish.

    For me it would be about the color scheme, I could use its magical properties to "chant down Babylon".

    I do like the Rasta's shown above, but my favourite Rasta PRS would be this one:

    That's a nice and probably expensive attempt on the theme. Too bad they got it wrong. The colors always have to read green, gold and red from left to right.

    Depends on from what point on the guitar you are looking at....the center part does...and they reversed it for symmetry...looks good to me if you look at it from the middle.

    Biggest FAIL had to be the DGT goldtop with old birds...
    They only made about 20 of them and realized what a mistake they had made...

    Official DGT Club President 2008-2016
    "Lucky": 2012 McCartyBurst PRS DGT Moons (59/09 Neck Pickup)
    "Lucy G": 2008 GoldTop/DarkBack PRS DGT Birds(57/08 Pickup)
    "Lester": 2007 GoldTop/DarkBack Les Paul R0(59/09-57/08)

    I kinda like that billy SE very bare-bones vibe to it, excluding the weird green inlay, if it was just green dots/moons then it'd be much better =3
    Current: PRS SE Dave Navarro, Spear NF-II
    Gibson Les Paul Studio Goldtop P90, Dean Schenker Retro V Dean ML Silverburst
    Laney LH50 + 112V Cab
    Inbound - Sterling JP60 + (Possible) Ibanez RGD2120Z

    Learn something new every day - I had no idea that PRS made bongo stands.

    I bought this used as an 'investment' because so few were produced. I still play it now and then to remind myself why I'm not playing it.

    Let's be clear here: a failure is when consumers don't respond with demand commensurate with the producer's investment in the product. Limited editions and one-offs still count, but ONLY if the demand is still not great enough to consume that limited supply.

    Replica guitars are weird enough, but I think the decision to duplicate the plug in the top like the original was a deal breaker for a lot of people.

    As great a player, musician and producer as Howard is -- and I take my hat off to him -- that guitar is not iconic enough that folks would line up for it. Howard played a lot of guitars over the years. Nice idea, but didn't make a lot of sense.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Cheer up Sergio, to the best of my knowledge no more than 12 Santana Tri-color Custom 24's were made. So that leaves 11 for you!
