    The Harem

    We recently had family photos taken by the talented Ms. Stephanie Brauer who's new name (she just got married) I do not know. While she was here, I had her photograph some of my PRS guitars for insurance purposes. I thought the photos came out quite well. There are 4 shots of each guitar; front, back, back of the headstock (or other serial number location), and one of whatever makes that guitar special to me.

    We missed a few guitars in the shuffle - and I got a couple right after we did the shoot - but I'll get her to snap them when we do family photos again next fall.

    Anyway... I thought I would share the pics for the PRS freaks among us who like candy threads. Enjoy!

    Superb collection. Love the paintjob on the CE. Usually I don't like when people mess with the One, but this is amazing. This should be a regular SE line. Killler....
