    I would say yes for Rev 1, 2 AND 3. Like all if them. Will need to take it to PTC to fine tune it to my taste, but I liked all 3 ideas. Lets start voting so we can get them at Experience 2013?!

    Read back most of this thread and from page one this is still my favorite platform, now lets add the new prototype pickups in there......

    Hans is right HM. The only way the SE plan has any shot is to buy 'em stock and have PTC mod them. And that probably at least doubles the SE price depending on the mods. Don't know that the number of buyers increases by the number you lose in that case. Wasn't much positive support for the idea. I'm still amazed that after a week the TRC poll only had less than 100 voters for a relatively inexpensive item. This is a guitar. Can't blame people for being particular about what they want for their money.

    REV 3

    Model Name: FG2013
    Base Model: DC22 (22-fret Santana)
    Scale:
    24.5"
    Hardware: Nickel
    Body: Solid, 1-piece Mahogany (No maple cap)
    Neck: Firewood (AKA Chaltecoco)
    Fretboard: Dark Ebony (polished) with 10 degree radius
    Frets: DGT fretwire with hidden fret tangs
    Headstock Design: Hand-signed by Paul (in gold metallic) under nitro finish
    Truss Rod Cover: Official Forum TRC
    Tuners: Phase 3 with ivoroid (cream) buttons to match cream pup rings
    Inlay: Birds flying toward headstock in MOP & Paua Heart
    Pickups: Prototype \m/ Humbuckers (Info)
    Control Layout: DC22
    Finish: Raw or matte nitro on neck, thin glossy nitro on body
    Case: Silhouette (small), like Hollowbody case, in black tolex (Black Paisley is WAY too expensive)
    Certificate: Signed by all PRS employees (Like the holiday card)

    3 options:
    1) Color: Natural (Clear), Goldtop with Vintage Mahogany back, Charcoal, *Pearl White, Seafoam Green
    *Metal Model pinstripes in choice of pinstripe color (Extra $$$)
    2) Neck Carve: Santana, Pattern Regular, Pattern Thin
    3) Bridge: Regular Tremolo or 2-piece PRS stoptail (no Piezo option)

    Dealer: Your usual PRS pusher
    I might be in on something like this. I like pretty much all of those things. I'd have to go play a Santana again(been years) to decide on a neck.

    If you did pearl white, would the neck be pearl white with matte finish? or leave the back of the neck natural? Or do it goldtop style with just a pearl white top with natty back? Man, I feel like I need a goldtop, pearl white and natural.

    I'd be good with that too. Both my guitars have 59/09's and I want something else. And one's vintage yellow. Different color option, and I'm in.

    Revision "S"



    Just think about it one more time.

    If you wanted a different color or a flame top you just simply glue a veneer, or paint the backside.
    Route it for two humbuckers and make 15 stoptails and 15 trem models.

    I like it. Put a chalkboard on it and put the daily specials on it. Put a battery pack on and a strip of LEDs around the side and light it up.
