    Came to mind that PRSi refers to multiple guitars how about PRSf to refer to the forum? Might be a good inbetween for the guys that like text but not the word "forum"

    I had the idea of the world, the globe, the community of all of us because we have members from all over. So I did a compass design. I wanted the birds, but when it was shrank down to TRC size, I felt like it lost too much definition. So, I went to eight birds, as evenly spaced at the compass points as possible. Then the idea of the f-hole f came along, so I added that. Later on, and I don't know why I did this, or if many others seem to like it, but I did the 'Est. 2012' thing. I offset it to one side, but it's since been tweaked to the center. I like it better offset, but whatever.

    To stick to your question, though, I thought eight birds at the compass points of the world 'read' better. Less busy, more subtle, and classier too imo. I wasn't too concerned with using all the birds on a neck. I just felt that the most easily identified birds would say PRS Guitars just fine. Fewer birds, but bigger and clearer ones.

    I get the whole 8 points of the compass thing. If I were to choose 8 of the ten, I'd put on the Storm Petrel and the Screech Owl and take off the Sparrow Landing and the Hawk Landing - they just look like blobs when they are only outlines or solids without any interior detail. The Petrel and the Owl are much more identifiable as birds in the form we are using them.

    That's an interesting point, Bill.

    It's not the highest factor on my list, but it is a factor to me that this TRC will be seen by people who may not be as familiar with the PRS brand as some of us are. With that in mind, I just chose the eight that I thought looked the best on their own as well as part of the whole design. The actual amount was just the way it turned out. I guess it could have been done with only four birds, but I liked the message that eight conveyed. We forum members and PRS fans are all over the world, yet we're still relatively small in number as far as guitar companies - and their fans - are concerned. Using every bird wasn't high on my list, or even which birds; I just used what I felt were the best.

    As for which bird species you're referring to, I honestly don't know one from another, although I've looked at the list plenty of times. But I can identify them this way on my layout: The bird under the f-hole, and the one under the 12 in '2012' (or at 8 o'clock and 4 o'clock) were my last choices because they were the "least best" examples of the eight I started with if that makes any sense. If you have an idea about using different birds somewhere, I'd like to see it. I'm for whatever makes this whole adventure work out for everybody.

    One more thing if you don't mind. I want to apologize to everybody for slowing down the process because I don't have an image hosting acct. somewhere. I realize it's a pain to have to deal with me in this, and I really appreciate everybody's patience and indulgence. I can't thank you all enough for letting me take part.

    I think that would make a great T-shirt. Black with that logo on the back, and small "PRS Forum" in the pocket area on the front.

    It looks like we may be getting close to making a decision on the final design, but I'd like to keep it open a bit longer to allow others to submitt their ideas. Post 'em if you got 'em boys!

    I'll get my design finalized and posted in the next day or two. Sure wish I still had PhotoShop on my computer.

    I am liking the paisley one. Nice and classy and would look good on a top of the range ps or on a se. Would it be possible to make a se one so its cheaper. Not all of us are that well off.

    I'll leave this open until Friday, unless someone needs more time. After that I'll start a new thread, for those who want to play along at home, allowing members to vote for their favorite TRC.

    What about the design in the pocket area and the text on the back, just below the neck line? That seems to be a popular form these days.

    IMHO, PRSh should be the one to have the final say on the design. Just to give it that extra touch.

    What if PRSH approved the 'Hoff design?

    One more thing: the "f" doesn't only stand for "forum", but also for "friends with Sergio"

    Thank you. I may be biased but, I think we really need to go back and revisit that idea. Maybe we could put a flower on it, or maybe just one of these:
