    Good times man, good times! I was wondering what the headstock inlay looked like on the Paul's guitar he's bringing on the road. The HS inlay has changed from the original design.

    PS- you need to come to EXP '13, you'd have a great time.

    This is the guitar Paul almost sold me. I was chomping at the bit, because this was a sweet sounding guitar and it played great. But in the end, I really wanted a 408 so I'll wait a week until I hear from the folks at the CME and get my 408 order in. So Paul did sell me!

    This wall would look a hell of a lot prettier with MY guitars hanging on it. Hmmmm.

    Thats what I woulda said anyhow Honestly, I didn't feel like there were enough PRS in the store, that was my only gripe. That, and I would have like to seen the 2013 PRS catalog available.

    Agreed, they need more PRSi in stock. At best they had about 1 of each of the newer models. CME is just getting into the PRS dealer thing since the last dealer in the city was awaiting an 80's hair metal revival and went all in on custom shop Charvels. Paul spent the morning successfully convincing their sales staff how great his guitars and amps are with a few shoot outs with some of their best vintage gear.

    I was curious about that, I remembered CME just having used PRS, so I was curious. I had noticed a huge drop off in stock at the other dealer. I stopped making regular visits there after that. Glad PRS has hopefully got a new outlet in Chicagoland. Would've loved to have seen the shoot out.

    I was sitting over in the "circle of sofas" when this pic took place and it sounded phenomenal! Good will power staying on track with what you were after. I fell victim to that just a little while back - only to come back with what I originally wanted. Luckily didn't lose any $.

    I guess they had even less inventory than what I thought. Most of those new models were the sales rep's demos.

    I figured there were a bunch of demos, probably could've bought one if you were in love though? Maybe their stock will jump if they make a big initial order?

    Saw that video of PRSh and Davy on Facebook. Glad he actually got Davy to play a little bit even though they were all by themselves.
