    Agreed but it would be cool if they all said something like '1of 50' to designate the amount produced in the run. Also woudl hate to fight over colors, maybe the team could come up with a unique forum guitar only color or fade?

    Rather than a combined wish list guitar, maybe we could work off an existing new model--say the new Paul's guitar, and create a special PRS Forum Edition. It could have the custom TRC that someone mentioned above, and be specially signed and numbered. Perhaps with a choice of 1/2 special colors. I think that might justify a run, a la a dealer run. I would try to buy one.

    When ordering lunch for a large group of people, it is always easier to ask what the WON'T eat.

    I love the idea of a 24.5" scale DC22 with Piezo and a pair of narrow 408's. Make it Vintage Yellow with just a hint of Amber added to the stain (so it looks aged) with a unique inlay (or no inlay at all) and I'd be on it like a hobo on a hot dog.

    Did someone say nitro?

    Neck carve would still have to be an option.

    Or maybe a US model loosely based on the SE One with BRW fretboards, a lipstick pup in the bridge position, and P22 Piezo? You know that would get my vote!
    I'll take one of these...as a US model or an SE.

    I won't eat vintage tuners, but am willing let go of my other deal breakers for the sake of making this happen.

    well, once again, wonderful idea.
    I think the piezo would be too much, don't like it. 24.5 scale and DC aren't my cup of tea, but as JFB said: "I am willing let go of my other deal breakers for the sake of making this happen.". I also think Mike 7 Eriza Verde Burst could be an interesting option for a color

I'd vote for special inlays, however, and wouldn't mind the original Tree of Life design from the 1995 Rosewood Ltd.
    Doc - anything with BRW makes overseas shipping a problem if not impossible. We need this guitar to be available to our friends overseas too.

    The trem needs a steelblock for that upper mid sizzle .25 " neck please!Vintage yellow is so classic PRS.I like Sergios idea with a bolt-on neck.Keep costs down .Signature switching.How about same specs on a few different bodies(including a bolt-on custom ala CE or Hiland)?

    I de-modded my CU22 soapbar and made a factory spec setup.Im in love again.I very much believe now PRS guitars are perfect as they are.

    Yup....we are real close to a consensus here, fer sure!

    Maybe the official Forum TRC was the best idea after all.

    what about a version of Paul's guitar, but with different inlay and rosewood neck? trem or stop tail as an option. and I insist that Mike7 Verde Burst would make it even more one of a kind. just saying

    I'd think we'd have more luck obtaining a majority opinion than a consensus.

    Korina DGT Standard 245 w/moons in natural nitro matte finish with trem, Grissom bridge pickup, 59/09 neck pickup, Wide-Fat(or pattern equivolent) neck profile...
    This keeps it reasonable on the price, and creates a tonal workhorse that has some uniqueness as well...
    Options are nickel hardware with clear lampshades and creme pickup surrounds, or gold hardware with amber lampshades... and black pickup surrounds...

    just a thought but it worked on that forum where the members would get roudy if they didn't get their spec in the first thread (though strangely quite when it didn't get voted through)
    Ya, I have done this a few times on the Seymour Duncan forum. That is just making a pickup and still SO much bickering and debate on specs. I like the idea of the poll based system for specs though. This would be such a cool idea, but again, with all the variables it will be tough....everyone has deal breakers, even myself and you'd need enough people on board or it wouldn't be worthwhile! Alot of guys love the rosewood necks and short scale.....I don't need/want another rosewood necked guitar and prefer the longer scale; some would only be in if it were rosewood....or maple....or 'hog! Haha! Personally, I would say start with a platform, an iconic PRS like a Custom or Mccarty like twinfan said and then poll the rest of the specs!
