    I did assume as such, I was thinking if we can get a run of 30/40/50/60/whatever the number ends up being, we'd be in a position to get a special forum pool route, to cater for everyone's tastes (H/H, S/S/S, S/S/H, H/S/H, 408/408, 408/408/408...)

    All we would have to do is choose a body wood (Swamp Ash was suggested), a neck wood (maple was suggested), a headstock shape, and an inlay. From there we would want to choose the pickups routing that would be least invasive so people could modify the pups via PTC.



    So if we specified a bolt-on maple necked SAS with a single NF in the bridge, you could do just about anything. Just leave the common element alone to identify it as a Forum guitar. That common element, to me, would be a unique inlay.

    Thoughts?
    Like this! Good ideas!

    How about a limited run of SE 7's. Black with PRS FORUM inlay at 12th fret. No other inlays. PRSh signature on headstock with SE truss rod cover. Special gig bag included as well.

    I think a carved-top PRS body (not a flat top like the NF3) with a swimming-pool route and a wood pickguard like this one would be amazing.

    Can you imagine a maple fretboard with a maple pickguard like this one on a guitar?

    Maple pickguard is a nice touch.

    It appears that CRGTR has proven your passion attainable. A paisley print SE245 soapie would be just fine with me. (OK, adding 20th anni birds would be acceptable too)

    +1 , for paisley SE with the Paisley TRC. The timing of the paisley TRC, the PTC paisley covered SE and the pursuit of a forum guitar come together from various threads on the FORUM . It was meant to be, Let's do it !

    This is starting to sound promising. I don't want to make this any more difficult, but I think this needs to be opened up to the floor:

    The cheapest way to do this is to:

    -Pick one SE model
    -Agree on mods (if any)
    -Get it covered in black paisley
    -Get the forum TRC put on there
    -This becomes the "forum guitar"

    The advantage is this can be like a "production run" within the PTC, all the paisley blanks are the same (templates can be made), which I assume would go a long way to reducing the cost. Same deal with the mods (if any). The disadvantage, as evident by the lack of traction so far on this project, is it will be very difficult to come to a decision, and no doubt the end product (if there is one) will be a deal breaker for several members.

    Another option is:

    -Open it up to all SE models (or maybe one or 3, a SC, a DC and "The One")
    -Get it covered in black paisley
    -Get the forum TRC on there

    This becomes the Forum Guitar LE Series.

    Slightly higher cost due to several templates (or even all custom cuts on the paisley) but a bit more catering to the masses.

    What you do after this point is up to you, pickup swaps/adds, hardware upgrades, refinishes on the back etc. This will obviously become a little more difficult to manage, but maybe Shawn could make up a special forum guitar order sheet, with some limited choices that we all agree on.

    Thoughts?

    If the paisley design can be translated to an appliqué and over sprayed, this might be produceable. But I'm betting that Shawn is crapping a small woodland creature with the thought of creating a few dozen of Chris' beauty. That does not look like it was easy or easily duplicated. Otherwise, maybe reducing the guitar options to 2 models...all SE...and the "forum" mods, could become realistic. Affordable for more people and minimally invasive for PRS.

    So a bear and a rabbit were pooping the woods.

    The bear looks over at the rabbit and says "Hey there little bunny. Do you ever have trouble with poop sticking to your fur?"

    The bunny, bewildered by the odd nature of this question, just shook his head (no).

    So the bear giggles, picks him up, wipes his ass, and walks away.

    Axle Rose said something very similar once - and probably more accurate. At least, for me.
