Hmm did someone say something about trying to get new members? Surely PRS forum man-thong flash mob would be the best ad campaign ever.
"Oh, I remember Shawn," one said. "He was fun while we were at PRS, but ever since I left, no calls, no flowers, no candy."
"Well, that Shawn, he's a player," said the second one. "You ship out, and he's only interested in the dings you get later so he can take you into the PTC."
"I dunno," said my third. "I still have my memories."
So. Shawn. Artist V, SC58, and Sig Ltd. Give them a little hello some time. They're very sweet guitars.
- A PTC guitar makeover
- All expense paid trip to the PRS Experience
(hmm, let's see..what else do I want..)
- Gift Card to the online store
- Signature Club Membership
Damn, thought I could think of more! lol
"Just one more and then I promise, no more guitars honey!" - The phrase I say most to my wife
We did try to find "the most damaged PRS in the world" for a while, but most of the guitars offered just had small nicks and dings and we never got anything severely damaged. That's been put on hold for now.
Gift cards and Sig Club memberships are great ideas!
I think a lot of the forum social anxiety when you're the new guy is self imposed. I felt it a little when I first joined Birds and Moons but once you just dive in, this is a pretty accepting bunch. And for what it's worth, my first post was about an SE and my next NGD was another SE. I've since moved along to Maryland Made PRSi but all those posts were met with the same enthusiasm as the perfectly spec'd Private Stocks... So, the moral of the story is this, we love em all up in here! So post up those NGDs, I love seeing a new Bernie or Korina One just as much as a Collection McBrazzy...
There is indeed a clique of PRS playing disco lovers. We sit around listening to George Benson records, such as 1976's Breezin'. We have disco balls spinning in our studios. We wear white suits, and play along with Bee Gees records.
We play clean, using interesting chord inversions, instead of power chords through horribly distorted amps. We can improvise to any disco tune.
We wear red socks and bikini underwear. Our shiny patterned nylon shirts are tailored to bodies that are sculpted through constant dance motion. We laugh at typical rock and roll posturing and noise.
We are free men and women, we are not slaves to transitory fashion. And our movement is growing.

[QUOTE=docbennett;49569]Sergio.....there is not a clique of PRS playing disco lovers.
Wait a minute, there isn't?
601... May have spoke to soon!
However, some cool ideas have been generated so it's all good!
Sounds like the aftermath of a good night... Unless the 'White Suit' is a straight jacket!
George Benson himself is playing for the crowd with a live disco band. You look over to the right, and there are the Bee Gees at the next table, taking in the scene with David Bowie. You know better than to run over and ask for autographs.
The most beautiful woman you have ever seen is pulling on your arm to get you to dance with her.
She is a Monegasque, and asks you to come live with her after only one dance. You agree, knowing that the minimum net worth required to be a Monaco resident in 1978 was a cool million bucks. So not only do you now have supreme companionship, but you're getting your own Rolls Corniche as a housewarming gift. Do not blow it by moving in your stuff in a bunch of garbage bags. Bring the Louis Vuitton.
You look in the mirror, and you are 25 years old again.
The yacht "Disco Volante" used in the Bond film Thunderball is moored in the harbor. You've been invited to spend a weekend with your new mate on it. "Life is good," she says in her French accent, tanned and looking like a Chanel model, "Isn't it darling?" You pat her hand as she touches your arm, and say, "You look wonderful tonight." Her face lights up.
Niki Lauda, the Formula 1 champion with the Ferrari team, is racing in the Grand Prix tomorrow for his new team, Brabham. You'll watch the race at the hairpin just in front of Loews Monaco (now the Fairmont).
