Thread: NEW PS Pauls guitar

    It's going to be tough to sit on the sidelines and watch this run sell-out. The timing, for me, couldn't be worse.

    My Westy is sad. I haven't played in a while. Having too much fun with the Raven and SE One with the lipstick. I suppose I should dig it out and shake the wood a little.

    All this talk of the Trem's, not for me, if I get one of these it would be with a Stoptail!

    (Which is an option on this run.)

    Neglect is a form of abuse, poor Westy.

    Wrong scale length for you, isn't it?

    Wait a second, what am I saying? Get one!! Then sell it to me! I prefer the copper color.

    Epic lulz in this thread--including enduring the unendurable or suffering the insufferable--and the Ikea allen wrench rule--thanks guys!

    Hans, they're private stocks. When you're ready, you can get something just like these.

    Yeah, remember - Paul's new bridge has exposed brass parts where it touches the strings!

    No, I didn't remember that! Funny, I assumed that was standard on all PRS bridges, and was one of the "Artist Tweaks" that has been incorporated into later models. Assumptions...

    That's a great photo by the way!

    Is it going to look like this?

    Except mine has the standard stoptail. BUT, I figure it was good enough for Paul.

    TWO new bridges this year and I had no clue?! This is what I get for not registering here sooner!

    Thanks for reminding me how much the '80s music scene sucked!
