    My 3 cents.....
    If you really think about it, that is a standard PRS body shape. Carlos has been with Paul since the beginning. I remember seeing a Whale Blue Santana Quilt in a Guitar World Magazine in 1986 or 87 and I fell in love.

    sounds pretty cool...I've never tried the narrow 408's. I might want more finish options. Hans what were you thinking in terms of the inlay? Single Bird, dragon, or knot?

    While you're at it, put a piezo on the 6, since they won't do it for a 12.

    As long as it's just a dream, both the 6 and 12 are piezo ... FR Trems ... With roland. And platimum hardware. And it only weighs as much as a single neck hollowbody.

    I don't think "won't" is the right verbiage. Cant?

    12-string bridges are amazing. The intonation is adjusted for each string which is one of the reasons people love them. They would have a pretty tough time getting 12 piezo elements onto those saddles. I'm not saying it isn't possible but it certainly isn't available (today).

    I meant to say "can't". I was really psyched to build a PS CU-24 with 12 string and piezo, but that came crashing down to earth at 8 AM yesterday morning. I do understand that it is a "they would if they could" situation; not a refusal to do it by any means.

    How about a Swamp Ash Spesh, 2-piece body, H-H config, Maple Neck and board with black outline birds. Special forum headstock novelty........No finish on body.

    That would keep the production costs down low...... THEN each guitar comes with a $500 PTC credit, and we all mod to suit!!

    Could change p-ups, colors, fretboard, inlays, fix the term whatever you want, add your own $$ if you want for something crazy!! Send it to someone for a Metal Paint job or a bowling ball swirl then back to PTC for set up who knows......... Send your body all around the world to be signed by forumites, the back to PTC for the clear coat..... Who knows!!

    Have a sticky thread and keep track of them all!!

    Would be a cool ad for the PTC too!!

    We are certainly on to something here.

    You guys are so totally missing the boat, here.

    Just choose a regular model, and have PRS paint it paisley, ship it in a paisley case, and include a paisley T-shirt, hat, socks, underwear and strap. Hans may want to skip the socks, but he could always opt for an extra T-shirt.

    Better yet, make the paisley finish available to forum members only on any model, and let people scramble to get on board. That way, everyone gets the guitar they want, only it's paisley. Special. Forum. Paisley.

    Private stock guys could get a paisley inlay.

    I still like my ping pong paddle idea, maybe if the striking surface of the paddle was paisley, you guys would like it better.

    The Bolt-on body/neck also lends itself to being 'messed' with and shipping pieces around teh country... world.... universe etc!
