    Let's Hear it . Who's ordered a 408

    I'm one of many ( I assume ) that has ordered a 408 . My version is gonna be a hog in charcoal finish with a rosewood neck and stoptail. The anticipation is killing me.

    I'm just curious to what everyone else is wanting on their versions

    I'm (im)patiently waiting for an Amber Black 408 mt. lol
    Thinking about a hog stop tail with a rosewood neck next. I agree with both aduayer and Hans about the 408 piezo idea , that would be very cool.

    +1 on the P408, but it'd kinda be like putting a couple of eggs in a basket...

    I'm really interested in how a 408 ST will sound with a RW neck? Has there a non-maple topped PRS offered with a RW neck before?

    Oh and natural, it'll look hot in natural!

    Yea I'm really curious to see waht the standard is going to sound like with the rosewood neck . Has anybody gotten ETA's. Getting tired of standing at the door waiting like a little kid at christmas. Plus its starting to get cold out ( Oh yea I guess I could stand inside )

    Alan,

    This is the one that you got from the EXP. if I'm correct. Is the tone darker on it because of the neck ? Beautiful guitar.

    Thanks - that's the one.

    I haven't played a non-RW version, so I can't speak as to how it would compare to another 408ST. I will say this - it does have a snap to it. Maybe clarity would be a better word.

    I'm hoping to do some recording in the next couple weeks with it, so I should be able to post some samples soon.
