    OK....So, now you do not want one? Then what pray tell was the point of all this? And one more question if you please, and this is more so for yourself to ponder than my own curiosity, but if you had been one of the first 25 to reply and commit, would you have gone to bat for this silent majority you represent?

I may not always agree with the company line...but I value my opportunity to participate and comment.

    So...I have no problem speaking out when others have fear of reprisal, whether it is realistic or not. I hope that there would be no reprisals for oppositional comments...however from what I've received privately...there are a lot of members who agree with me but who are concerned about posting it publicly. So..while they certainly can speak for themselves...for whatever reason...they are afraid. If someone in authority were to post a comment assuring no reprisals or retaliation in any manner for comments going against the way things turned out....I'd bet anything that you'd see a public display of chagrin.




    I think you've been treated unfairly Doc. You prolly deserve a free Guitar!

    I sense a disturbance in The Force, My Wa, Chi and Mojo all at the same time.

    I humbly ask that we take a step back and chill. This not the time to abandon the idea or the project. Hans and many other Forum Members put a lot of effort and time into getting this thing this far. That effort was in good faith and deserves not to be denigrated or wasted.

    Nothing is set in stone at this time and we need to allow that change is possible. For one thing, PRS has not agreed to the project, making the whole discussion academic at best.

    One thing that is very off-putting is the public accusation of less than honorable motives or intentions towards anyone on either side of this debate. Such statements have no place in debate and reflect only on those making the accusations, not their intended targets. Knock it off.

    I'm locking this thread for a while to allow time for everyone to cool off.

    Nah... leave it closed. This was supposed to be fun. It's not.

    If I ever decide to pick up the ball again, I'll reopen the thread. For the time being (and foreseeable future), its dead.

    Maybe I'll cool off but I need time away from the discussion.

    Getting initial buy-in from PRS never happened - nor was I willing to do it unless we could narrow down what we were going to ask for. Wherever we go from here - assuming I ever reopen this tread - there are lesson's learned.

    Pissed doesn't begin to describe my emotional state right now...

    I have no dog in this hunt. I wasn't going to buy one of the guitars. But level of immaturity and lack of respect exhibited in this thread completely disgusts me. A word of warning. It WILL NEVER happen again.
