    • Let Paul Miles go nuts with the paint jobs (matching headstocks would be cool)
    I would buy this in a heartbeat! Definitely would have that cool "one off" type vibe as there would be no other PRS's like it! Also, with some of the amazing work being done by the PTC
    "hot rodding" existing guitars, an axe like this would be kind of a nice indirect nod their way as well!

    Skitchy and Shawn must approve all paint jobs.

    I like where you are going with this sir!

    Now personally, the specs you have listed (or iterations of) I love; but I do realize there are many who won't dig the 'rodded PRS thing. That's cool! The main point is that, like you posted before, if it is going to be a forum guitar; why not make it something unique! Why play it safe!? I also really dig the idea of giving some free reign at the PRS/employee end! Again, something different than us just picking a few colours!

    Exactly. If it's just a <insert model here> in a standard color with a custom TRC then I don't see the point.

    The fine employees at PRS are what keeps a lot of us coming back for more - they'd come up with something cool for sure.

    I really like the part that somebody posted: let Paul Mile get crazy with the finish. Loved it, and the other comment about Shawn and Skitchy should aprove the paint job.

    I thought we had piezo in there to cover the "acoustic", and are there going to be any options on the case?

    Ok... a quick show of hands who would be in if we went with this:

    DC22 (24.5" scale)
    Narrow 408's
    Piezo Stoptail or Trem Option
    All Mahogany in Vintage cherry, Natural Burst, Charcoal, Opaque White, or Goldtop with dark-back
    Mexican Blackwood fretboard
    Santana Headstock
    Pattern, Santana, or Wide/Thin neck carve
    Phase 3 tuners
    Custom inlay (something simple... not expensive, that can be exported)

    I'd prefer the regular headstock, but I'm in either way. Vintage Cherry and the stoptail for me.

    Please, stop tail and no piezo option
    No maple top nor rosewood neck options took me by surprise, but you can count me in, depending on the price
