    Actually... you found those images right here on the Official PRS Forum. I had those photos taken a few months ago. I love BRW McCartys!

    I'd love to see this thread try to collect all 250! Here is number 168 (which I recently sold to FlukePete).



    And here's one that passed through my hands a few years ago in Turquise (pretty uncommon color). No idea which number it was. The seller (GC) had lost the hang-tag and back-plate.



    And then there was this one (#139). It has an AMAZING black neck. It now belongs to my friend Shigeura San.



    And then there is the MOB. It pre-dates the limited run.

    Here's #140. She has the best neck of any guitar I've ever played. I did a pickup swap for a set of zebra 57/08s. Great guitars...

    I've been watching that one on eBay for awhile. Jack Gretz has it listed for $4600. She's absolutely gorgeous.

    I have a folder with some BRW McCarty photos I've saved over the years. If the owners of those guitars don't post them in the next few weeks, I'll email them and ask their permission before I do.

    Either way, I'd love to see this thread try to account for all 250 from the limited run.

    Yes,that would be great if we could see the whole run pictured here and though I guess it's a long shot we can certainly try...!!

    I keep track of all of them (appearing in this thread and elsewhere-hey,what's a guy to do with his time?) and I've counted 42 so far.
    So still a long way to go...

    I'll be posting some new pics this afternoon. Cheers,Peter.

    And here's a bunch of Brazzies I found on a Japanese webshop somewhere. Obviously,I couldn't figure out what the heck they were saying on that site when it comes to specifications and so forth but I understood enough to see that these were BRWs (correct me if I'm wrong though).

    Dark cherry sunburst with quilted top and moons (no number to be found in pics) :

    I'm surprised that PRS themselves haven't got a photo archive of these guitars along with the PS and other top models, there must be something somewhere surely?

    So this is what, 19 out of 250? I can't believe there aren't more of us here that own these beauties.

    BTW, there are 2 on ebay as we speak:

    I was lucky enough to get to play one of these when it came in used at a local GC. VERY nice guitar!

    These are kind of like the original Modern Eagles. Very cool.

    Would anyone know if there are a list of serial numbers these fall into? When I bought mine, both guitar center and myself were in contact with PRS who confirmed (somehow) it was in this run but when the original owner sold it to GC he kept the back plate, so there is no signature or number on it. With that said I'm wondering if there is a way to validate if what I have is part of this run or at least has a Brazilian neck.
