    Question about Ordering a Private stock instrument

    Not sure if this is allowed but I would like some suggestions from the Private stock crowd as far as what dealers you have had positive experiences with. i am looking to try a private stock just not sure where I want to order it from.

    Here is what I am looking at so far

    SC245 Body
    Mahogany Body with a quilted maple top
    Indian or Brazilian Rosewood neck
    Possibly an ebony fingerboard
    Piezo bridge
    Mother of pearl birds
    As far as the colour I am unsure
    Whale Blue 2008 McCarty w./ IRW neck / DGT IRW neck incoming
    Black Slate 513 w./ IRW neck
    PRS 2 Channel H + Bogner 20th Shiva
    EBMM BFR Petrucci 7 string (IRW neck)
    EBMM Mystic Dream 6 string (IRW neck )

    Brent at http://www.theguitarshop.ca was super helpful during my recent order. He really knows the PS process. Trust him.

    Just make sure you find someone who orders them on a regular basis and you'll be fine.

    Brent is your guy! I have 2 PRS guitars from TGS, and have a PS guitar that Brent helped me with in the works. The experience was amazing. He really knows his stuff. I've seen a number of PS guitars that he has spec'd out at TGS, and I tell you, they were amazing. The pictures on his website do not do them just. The "Duo Board #1" is stunning. I can highly recommend him!

    p.s. this my first time posting. My son told me about about PRS guitars and their Private Stock program last summer. I was in TGS one day getting some strings when I realized they sold PRS guitars. I asked Brent about the PS guitars and he showed a few of the ones he had in stock. That was it! The sickness began:-)

    Eric at Willcutts is great to deal with and he heads down to the factory every couple of months to do PS orders with his customers. He has told me that he tries to schedule it around PRSh being there.
    How 'bout them Cowboys
