    Birthday Guitars

    Two of my PRS guitars were completed on my birthday and one on my daughter's birthday. I've seen threads where people are looking for birthday guitars. In fact, Justin (justmund) is trying to find a guitar made on his new-born-baby's birthday as we speak. Just curious how many of you have a birthday PRS.

    Both the Bernie and the SE C24 I just got where partly birthday guitars. Partly Xmas and general savings too, so I guess they're not 100% birthday guitars. Had birthday amps though.
    Modified SE Bernie Marsden, Fender Strat
    Laney Lionheart L5T-112, Fender Mustang 1

    PS #4262
    Has birthday on back of headstock.
    "Catch 33" on banner for 33rd birthday.
    Green color cause birthstone is emerald.
    I was born in 1980 and almost went Santana shape...never really spent time on one so I decided against it.

    MY PS #3340 has my B-day on the back of the headstock! I specifically requested this when I was told in March that it would take around 6 months to complete.

    When I received it in June, I had a guitar that was "built in the future" for about 4 months!

    Man, if you could create your significant other, to your personal specs...at the private stock factory....

    I'll walk away now and take the proverbial cold shower.

    Ehh, I'm not that picky about the specs, though I did luck out on that.

    But they're awfully tricky to maintain properly.

    My custom 24 has a tag date one day before my 40th, and a case date on my 40th--and it was a 40th birthday present. Pretty close!

    My wife's birthday is two calendar days away from mine, 364 days in real time.
