    I'm confused as to exactly what these are.

    Are these pre-owned ME1's that have been reacquired and refined?

    Are these newly produced guitars built to ME1 specs with some refinements?

    Are these ME1's that were sitting at dealers, were never sold, and have been reacquired and refined? Thus, true NOS.

    Are these ME1's that were in production back in the day and for some reason were set to the side and not completed . . . until now?

    The last option. Put to one side until the provenance of the BRW was confirmed and cleared. The differing states they were left in is reflected in whether it has original spec pickups or newer ones.

    Either way, it's cool that these guitars are finally seeing the light of day rather than having some pointless eco-vandalism commited on them! Now if only there could be a commercial solution that encouraged new trees to be planted so that older ones could still be harvested in a ecologically sympathetic way........resulting in a restored BRW tree population - or any other CITES listed species.

    These are all true NOS, none of these instruemnts have ever left the factory.

    We pulled all guitars containing BRW out of production in 2007 and set them aside. The guitars were/are in various stages of completion. Now that we have the green light to complete these guitars, they will be sold. Some will have serial numbers from 2007 and some will have serial numbers from 2012, it just depends on where they were in the production line when things got shut down.

    The first few NOS ME1's are shipping today!

    We are in the process of partnering with a rainforest reforestation program. More information will be forthcoming.

    I tried to resist, but SC in FBJ was just too tempting.

    'Course, I just picked up a Quatro at the experience...

    Figures - I'm still happy though.

    (I'll just stop reading this thread and the respective page on the PRS site...)

    Is BRW a nightmare to travel with?
    I have seen a lot online about it but not any proper answers

    Don't feel bad ... You got the V12 finish, 5310s, pattern carve, and saved a couple thousand.
