    Here's just a suggestion to mull over. I think we can see that we could keep tweaking current ideas - and introducing new ones - til the cows come home. How about we set a deadline (Mon. March 1st at 9AM Eastern time US for example), and shut off the brainstorming. Someone (Shawn, Hans, ???) could then either set up the poll so members can vote, or just go with the obvious clear winner IF there is one at that point.

    How does that sound? Agreements? Complaints? Round of cold drinks all around either way?

    (BTW Hans, this may be what you had in mind all along with your earlier post about the poll. If so, forgive me for stepping on your toes, and I'll keep quiet and let you do what you gotta do.)

    Yeah, and in no time, you'd wind up with carpal tunnel and lumbago!

    It was (And the other design) based on this photo I found...



    I was trying to do brushstrokes with a mouse... never gonna work, lol! The graphics are a little severe, almost blade like but kind of fitting in a way as an Eagle does have some hard lines,. The head looks more like that of a penguin or parrot though... hey hoe!

    Mike, I like where you're going with these, very clean and creative!

    Lloyd, I'm not quite ready to pull the plug just yet, I'd like to give folks some time to develop their ideas

    Cheers Shawn... The thinking with the Aston Martin / Mini type wings with the globe is symmetry. Something that would work on left and right hand guitars....

    LOVE this....but I prefer Lloyd's avatar bird orientation. I think the 4 "big" birds on Lloyd's are easily the most prominent birds on the neck and are presented as such in his avatar pic, which is important IMO. The avatar pic is closest to the size of an actual TRC(on my PC screen anyway). I like the spacing or layout of Bill's "PRS forum Est. 2012" better. I think that PRS and Est. 2012 could be a hair bigger, I'm talking a very small amount to make it a bit easier to read. If I had a bigger pic of Lloyd's I might be able to combine the 2 and make the adjustments I'm thinking of(depending on how my photoshopping skills are working today, lol). I think this design encompasses the aspects that should be on the TRC without any redundancy or issue of lefty/righty.

    Hey, cool by me. I was just worried that you might be getting tired of all this. I'm enjoying seeing all of the different takes on it. There are so many great ideas here that I'm almost afraid to show my own.

    I have a larger version. I could e-mail it to you if you want to pm me your address?

    And he'd be gazing back the whole time! Could anybody hold up to Paul just staring at them for more than 7 seconds?

    It's a lovely pic... Not mine sadly, just one I found on the net. It's pics like this that make me want to splash out on a high quality camera.
