    The aristotle/rugerpc campaign just received confirmation of a few details about the other candidates which we feel it is our duty to pass to the electorate. Sensitive passages have been redacted by the investigating agency, but rest assured, a full report has been forwarded to the election oversight committee and to DGh and PRSh. A sample is included below

    THE RULES:

    1) All forum rules apply. DO NOT, under any circumstances, ruin the fun by dipping your toes into "other" elections.

    2) The will be 4 questions and 4 opportunities for everyone to respond to the answers posted by the candidates. Only Presidential Candidates may respond to the 4 questions during the 10 minutes that follow. After 10 minutes has passed, the window will be closed and a 5-minute window will open for retort. ANY member of the Official PRS Guitars forum may respond to the answers provided by the candidates. The 5-minute window opens when I post "FREE FOR ALL". It closes when I post the next question. I will delete "FREE FOR ALL" comments made after I post the next question.

    3) Candidates may NOT edit their post(s). If any response by a candidate shows an edit notification at the bottom, it will be deleted. No exceptions.

    4) No misquotes. If you quote someone, don't change what they said. You may, however, take it out of context. LOL

    5) I reserve the right to change the rules whenever I want to.

    Ready fellas?

    I see the challengers each stand at a dirty soapbox while the incumbent sits on a high throne? That just ain't right....

    Question #1
    The following excerpt comes from David Grissom's website (davidgrissom.com):


    "David Grissom is one of Texas' premier Rock, Blues, and Americana guitarists who has toured and recorded with artists such as Storyville, John Mellencamp, Joe Ely, The Allman Brothers Band, Dixie Chicks, James McMurtry, Webb Wilder, Chris Isaak, Robben Ford, Ringo Starr, Buddy Guy, John Mayall, and many others.

    David moved to Austin in 1983 and quickly became a stalwart on the vibrant local scene playing with both Lucinda Williams and Lou Ann Barton. He joined Texas legend Joe Ely’s band in 1985 and toured and recorded nonstop until 1991 when he joined John Mellencamp’s band. David made 3 records with John and toured extensively from 1991 through 1993. After, Mellencamp, David went back to Texas to form Storyville, the band that included the Double Trouble rhythm section and powerhouse vocalist Malford Milligan. He recently played on Buddy Guy’s 2011 Grammy Award winning Living Proof CD. He is the author of the book “A Guide To Blues/Rock Guitar Soloing.”

    In 2007 Paul Reed Smith introduced the DGT, David’s signature model guitar that represents the culmination of a 25 year relationship working with Paul on the design and improvements of their guitars from a touring/session player’s perspective. He is also currently working with Doug Sewell and PRS to help develop their new line of amps."

    The office of "President of the DGT Fan Club" is a fictional office with no real authority. It's all about being a fan of the man and his guitars. ESPECIALLY his guitar. It could be said that the President of the DGT Fan Club should be the biggest fan. Whoever gets the winning vote has some degree of responsibility to represent the DGT in the light it deserves. We're just having fun but David Grissom and Paul Smith have made a sincere investment to make this guitar so amazing.

    So... if you unseat Kevin, the current and original President of the DGT Fan Club, how will you carry the torch? How will you keep it fun but respect the hard work that brought us this guitar? What does the DGT Club President really do besides post "Your President approves" in every DGT thread?
