    I cheated while at NAMM...

    ...my Custom 22 would be so upset. Please, don't tell her!




    I went to the PRS booth very early on Thursday, hoping to see some lefties. Two years in a row we've had some lefty PRS goodness. So, imagine my disappointment when I didn't see a single lefty guitar at their booth. I got over it pretty quickly, by snapping pictures of all those beautiful guitars (some of which I posted here) and by playing the next best thing: a Nik Huber Orca '59. Since this guitar sounds and feels incredible, and it would still be cheaper than getting a Private Stock lefty guitar, I think I might just take it home.

    Mr. Smith, I know you have to do what's best for your company, so no hard feelings. Next time you throw us southpaws a bone, I will be there. I still want a MDT, especially now that they threw an FX loop in it!

    To be fair, both lefty limited runs (2011-2012) have been announced after Winter NAMM. I did hear that this was the last batch we got for a while...

    Yeah, me too! I put a hold on this one. Let's hope I can bring her home!

    I bought this guitar. Got it a week ago. I am super stoked!

    On the other hand. Dear, Paul: please show us lefties some more love

    Sincerely,

    Ape

    I've seen the 7 strings. I can't say I need one of those, but it's cool he offers them nonetheless

    Just off topic a moment. About 1.40 into the video, in the background. I always wondered what happened to Beavis and Butt-Head.
