    I might have said it somewhere in some thread, but I would take a copy of "The Raven" in a heartbeat.

    That's the best idea, I think, unless it's going to be a guitar you can order in every color available. Good idea, Alex.

    Like aduayer suggested, a natural maple top as a starting point will be easier to work with. I think they should make 2 versions. One and SE while the other a full bling USA model, so that everyone who cant afford the USA made ones could get a piece of it too! Just my 2 cents

    Then clearly it has to ship in a black paisley case.

    YES, I agree, it should be a DC22. Though, I would LOVE for it to be a DC24, something special for the forum.

    That would be a Santana.

    Santana doesn't come with a Piezo. I've always thought of the DC22 as a Santana Jr anyway.

    I'll happily go for a Santana with a piezo!

    If you lock 100 guitar players in a room, with the proviso that they can only leave the room when they all agree on a guitar, you have given them a life sentence.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Hahaha! Agreed; it aint gonna happen! Outside of the few guys who have the expendable income to buy a forum guitar just because, most will only shell out for an American made PRS if it is pretty much exactly what they want. Not being negative; I think a forum guitar is a cool idea.

    How about just a box of unfinished parts and a forum truss rod cover?

    I copped to all of that in the opening thread (copied below). So... are we giving up?

    "It's been discussed before. It never really went anywhere. Too many differing opinions. But I have never been one to put my tail between my legs and run away from a good fight.

    If a forum guitar was on the table, do you think this crowd could ever agree in a single design if the only options were neck carve and pickup selection? Do you think enough of us could agree on a base model? Scale length? Fret count? Fret size? Headstock shape? Color? Wood composition? Control layout? Bridge? Maple binding? No binding at all? Birds? Moons? Celtic Knots? A totally unique inlay? Bolt on neck? Glued in neck?


    Would it be based on a McCarty? A semi-hollow McCarty? A CU24? A DC22 (24.5" scale)? A hollow body? Santana 2? An SC or SC Trem? 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 wonder... could we get it done? Could we get 40 or 50 guys to commit the funds (up front) to give PRS a compelling reason to consider building the Official PRS Forum guitar? Would 40-50 be enough?"
