    Irrelevant question. Anyone from Europe, or another "banned area" can have their guitar hand delivered by me, so long as they pay for transporation. As a "traveling guitar" it would not be exposed to import bans, since I would "just be taking it with me on vacation".

    No need to thank me guys...just doing my share to assist with the forum.

    nice of you to volunteer to do jail time for our international members. Just one thing, once you are in jail for the first one, who is going to smuggle the rest of them overseas?

    Can we have a more regular control/electronics layout on this?

    I'm not a huge fan of the controls on the DC22 models...

    I want #14........... But I cannot do 408's and I am somewhat price dependent not having an unlimited slush fund.........but do reserve the right to buy one anyway if it does come down to a 408 guitar if the rest of the spec is special enough.....truth is I have to see what is for sale before I can commit....hope that is not too vague an answer........


    also just looked at the latest posts......the DC controls with the switch and two knobs all close are not my favorite, vote for a more traditional layout.......

    Well, duh - that's his alibi! "Why no, officer, I didn't leave it in Europe, I just shipped it home ahead of time. In fact, I'm taking it with me to Canada in two weeks - would you like to check my reservation?"

    Seriously...all kidding aside...if someone owns a BRW neck PRS...and travels to Europe with it....and happens to leave it there....ostensibly for repair, or for a friend to borrow...or whatever.....are you saying that this is a criminal offense??? Not importing it, but bringing it into the country for a friend to "borrow"....again, all kidding aside, and regardless of the "hidden agenda".....is this really an actionable offense? If it is, I really want to rescind my offer. Can't afford to spend another 20 years of my life in jail. The first 20 in the Federal Pen in Leavenworth seemed to take forever.

    If Wedge really is 14, then that makes you 15, Pete.

    I'll dog ear #16.

    Could be. I read Wedge as towards the no side of the fence, but I'll find a home for 14 if he doesn't want it - perhaps with our favorite curator who appears to have missed the count.

    And to avoid confusion current count is 17.

    I don't really want to get into the politics or legal side of this, but the primary issue isn't where you leave it or for how long. It is crossing the border with it at all.

    If we are able to get this guitar made, it's going to be a very small run. I'd guess 30. I don't believe we'll be able to get away with multiple inlay options or a different pickup config.

    Considering what US guitar manufacturers have been through in the last few years, I'm surprised that anyone is suggesting that we consider BRW for any part of a guitar which would serve our international forum as its official guitar. Yet I see people asking for BRW this and BRW that for this guitar over and over. And over and over I have asked the question, "can it be exported?"

    As of yet, I have received no official answer to the question. How shortsighted would it be for us to finally agree to specs for this guitar only to it labeled "for US Domestic sales only" and thus leave our international members out in the cold?

    I submit to the group that BRW should be off the table for any part of this guitar unless we learn officially that BRW can be exported to our international members.

    I have literally lost count as to how many times I have brought this point up only to have it ignored and, if addresses at all, to have the point casually dismissed.

    I'll not bring it up again.

    Perhaps if they address this question, they will also address the repeated question as to why an OP can not be deleted unless performed by a moderator.

    These are the questions that are associated with Life, The Universe, & Everything!

    OK...back on track with regard to the ultimate potential exportability of the "chosen one" (along with, perhaps the ability to delete an original post when necessary).

    I started this thread to help generate a fun topic and get people excited about things we might be able to accomplish if we unify our effort.

    I am not a PRS employee. Anyone waiting for me to answer questions about what PRS will or won't do will be waiting a long time.

    Asking PRS or their reps to make any public statement about CITES controlled wood (without the statement coming from their legal office) is wishful thinking.

    I don't have to do any of this. If I get the impression this will create more butthurtedness than goodwill for the super-loyal PRS fans, this thread is history - along with my involvement.

    Bottom Line: IF I ever decide to meet with PRS Execs and ask them to consider a forum guitar, the request will include every member regardless of their geography. If that means the wood has to change for some or all guitars, so be it. Cutting the wish list short when we're still just wishing doesn't make any sense to me. When/if the day comes, I'm sure PRS will be clear about what's on the menu (at home or abroad).

    In the alternative...

    Just avoid starting threads you might later regret.

    I honestly don't think the mods owe anyone an explanation for forum policies. It's PRS' forum, it ain't a democracy. You might think of it this way: participation is a privilege, not a right.

    If your question hasn't been answered, maybe stop trying to call people out about it?

    You don't like the rules of the game? Don't play.

    That's what is. Deal with it.
