    Hey Corey. Did I read that right? You've never played a US PRS? Not even in a store? Oh wow. You are going to be blown away.

    Thanks John.

    Egads, yep, never played a USA one.
    My dealer has a few in stock that I saw in January the last time I was in there to put down my deposit, but I never played one.
    Was kind of a hurry then.

    Dealer called me on my way home from work, says it looks very nice, and it will be ready when I drop by first thing when they open up tomorrow morning.
    Getting prepared to be blown away.

    Congrats in advance, I know you're gonna love it.

    The 408s by the way...just great pickups. But the guitars themselves are magic!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

My dealer told me to be patient, because he was pretty certain that in short order they'd make a production model. He was right, and I've trusted him and his judgment ever since. But the delivery of this guitar is, quite literally, the culmination of half a lifetime's hard work and dreams. No, that's not hyperbole. I'm sure there are plenty of other folks 'round these parts who can empathize
    Oh yes, and I'm one of them.

    Getting something you've wanted and worked hard to get is a wonderful thing, one of life's pleasures. And waiting is hard. Definitely!

    When you're in the music business (as I am) you never know the future, and a PRS is a sizable investment. But when it comes, a special day happens. I wish you the best with yours.

    Wow this day is huge for you! I can definitely empathize with your situation and want to congratulate you on your hard work. I've also recently found myself in a position to purchase some newer nicer gear from the work I've done for the past 15 years. I know how it feels bro and I'm super excited for your upcoming weekend!

    I know you'll let us know how it goes...

    Nothing like a four dayer to catch up on some playing.
    Excellent choice.

    I'm guessing we don't hear much from Corey for the next few days.
