    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!

    Paisley inlay?

    Ok boys... What if we went with Tim's suggestion and specified a "Blank Canvas" guitar, such that you could keep it as is (cheaper) or have it PTC modified (for those who want something unique)?

    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?

    That sounds like what the PTC is doing for me right now
