    Did someone say nitro?

    Neck carve would still have to be an option.
    You nailed it with this one, IMHO....of course, I'd go for the 59/09 pups.

    For this to be worth doing, it has to be something you can't get from a production guitar (not forgetting about the Artist package).

    There are a gazillion variations of the McCarty and the CU22/24 so I'd avoid those altogether.

    The thing that would appeal to me would be some sort of unique configuration of a Ted McCarty. I'd say choice of pickups, add Signature switching, and two or three stains to choose from (preferably from the private stock list). I'd be open to SC or DC.

    Hans, what you should do is brainstorm with a handful of people of your choosing and put out a proposal - people are either in or out.
    You're never too old for tater tots.

    Let's bleed the pig a little more and then I'll re-read the thread to help shape that discussion. There are lots of members I'd still like to hear from.

    Out of my price range no matter what, but if there's a custom TRC comes out of it put me on the list!

    Be very interesting to see what comes of this and how the final guitar may look.

    I'm in for that too, as long as you drop the pizza. Not everyone's into it, plus it'll keep the price down.

    What if it was Eriza Verde Green pizza?

    There are some things that just don't work.

    Pizza never sounds right direct or through an amp.

    Well if it did happen it would be cool if it was special.... unique.... for people who bleed PRS day to day.

    What about some CE's with 408s.... a totally unique model that you can't get.....

    No. I have it. What about something like that limited run of 40 burl topped guitars. Why not make the forum guitar have a unique wood top and have the back hand signed 2013 PRS Forum Guitar.

    I like the idea of something unique. I even tried to find a way to work a deck of cards into the design.

    Wasn't busting on you, it was dinner time and I was hungry.

    Piezo is one thing I want and don't have, but I've also never sent anything to PTC for work, which I would also like to try, so I'm easy.

    Should it be a "forum guitar with only color and tailpiece" options, or should there be a "forum collection" with several pieces of various configurations linked together with a common "forum" theme, such as headstock veneer and inlay?
