    I LOVE this idea, it would make the guitar all the more unique and look crazy cool!!!

    It'd be nice to leave the HW color an individual option if possible. I am 100% out if it's gold H/W - I have 2 guitars with gold HW and it's 2 too many.

    I love playing guitar in my house shoes. I think we are getting pretty close. Black paisley and Piezo trem seemed put us all on the same page.

    The headstock signature poll thread got me thinking. What if all the employees signed the body before clear coat?

    Oh dude...

    We totally need to have Paul and Shawn sign it.

    Still think you need one that isn't at the $4k price point. take off the piezo, swap in a hog or maple neck, and take off the bling and it should hit the $2.2k mark. The Forum Lite version - tonally great and less filling to the credit card.

    Or, make those things all options. I really want in, but if it's pricey, it's got to be worth it for me. I would want the piezo, but am OK without the other bling.

    Options will come with quantity.

    It would be easier to discuss "what's possible" if we had a solid head-count.

    A "solid" head-count would be easier to get if we had prices.

    We can't talk prices until Shawn and I speak to Jack about really doing this. He'll want some idea of quantity. Which means we need a head-count.

    We'll tell him we can't get a head-count without some idea of options and pricing.

    And 'round it goes.

    Bottom line: Let's keep pushing for a SINGLE set of specifications. If we have enough interest (pending details on pricing) then we can do a quick look of how many more people would buy in if we add specific options like bridge type, piezo, neck carve, and pickups. We've made a huge leap forward in recent days. Stay the course.

    Right now we're working from this baseline:
    Model: DC22
    Scale: 24.5"
    Bridge: Piezo Trem (potential option)
    Neck Carve: Santana (potential option)
    Pickups: Narrow 408 (like on Brent Mason & Paul's guitar)
    Hardware: Nickel
    Body: Mahogany
    Top: Maple
    Neck: Chaltecoco
    Fretboard: Brazilian Rosewood
    Headstock Image: Hand-signed by Paul
    Finish: Ultra-thin Nitro
    Case: Black Paisley
    Dealer: Your choice

    If you mean the back of the body, under the finish, I'd be all over it.

    Just keep in mind, options=money. Gold hardware, bird inlays, fancy tops, piezo units, etc. all increase the price of the guitar. If I may suggest. Layout a few guitar models and options and determine how many folks would truly buy THAT particular guitar. You may be able to get away with a couple different variations of the Forum guitar, but "one of these" and "four of those" probably won't fly because anything with too many customizations becomes a Private Stock.

    Good point. Let's establish 10 guitars minimum for each set of exact specs. And... we need to limit the kind of options we're really talking about, right?

    Suggestions for options: Neck carve & bridge (piezo or non-piezo)

    People should keep in mind, the DC22 will balance (around your neck) better with a tremolo.

    I'm just catching up after being sick.

    I have a question for Shawn:
    Can PRS export BRW?


    I thought that the answer to that question was "NO" but we should get it clarified.

    This is an international forum with international members - it is conceivable that one or more international members might want a 'forum guitar' as much as the stateside members do. I have brought this up several times in these discussions, but it seems to keep getting ignored.

    Neck carve and bridge are the only options we really need I think.
