    CE-24 with birds and a 10-top. And a piezo in a trem. Maple board and old studio H-S-S options available.

    Basically it's the Alex Lifeson model that never was.

    Pickups/Electronics: Open zebra coil DGT bridge pickup (squabbin). Neck pickup would either be a zebra colored NF or 408 neck. Make them 3 wire and give the guitar a 5 way blade switch instead of the 3 way, like a current CU22/24 or Hiland. If the blade is set to bridge humbucker only, you can also split the bridge pickup with a push/push tone pot, but not in the other positions. Wire in the 2.2k resistor on the coil split ala DGT2012.

    Colors: Opaque black, goldtop/darkback, and PLAIN maple McCartyburst. No flame/quilt maple allowed.

    Inlays: Moon inlays only (eh, maybe I'd consider dots).

    Street price: $1999.
    My MP3 player quit on me so I needed something to meditate on while running on the treadmill yesterday. As usual my thoughts turn to guitars. I can easily daydream my way through a three mile run when guitars are the topic.

    This might be more of the Private Stock I will never be able to afford.

    Base Model: McCarty Trem.
    Mahogany body.
    Jet black ebony carved top with the 6 of spades inlaid in plain maple (this design) behind the bridge.
    Maple body binding.
    Clear V12 finish (satin on neck) so as to have a "black top" with a natural back. (See Tdarian's blacktop R7)
    Mahogany neck with rosewood board and moon inlays.
    Custom neck carve, copied from my USACG neck which is like a wide-fat with more shoulder - U shaped instead of C shaped.
    DGT squabbin bridge pickup, double black coils with a double black 408 neck pickup. 408 standard control layout and electronics, with the 2.2K resistor on the bridge split toggle.
    Phase 3 tuners. Dunlop straplocks.

    Hey John, I like the off-center thing happening with the band.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Based on the original 00 Singlecut

    Add:
    MOP birds
    PhaseIII Tuners that will fit LARGE strings from the factory, no drilling required.
    Adj. Stoptail Optional

    No trem, Widefat neck only.


    Easy!
    Not like the other kids...

    I may first cheat a little by saying it can be taken from the current DGT, but mine would be closer to the McCarty. So.

    - Take the DGT and put the stop tail to it, so back to a McCarty.
    - Locking tuners.
    - Moon inlays. Or wait, maybe earth inlays. Or the solar system planets. Hmmm...
    - Mahogany / maple, thicker like the McCarty, but not too fancy, PRS can save the 10 tops for other guitars.
    - Two volume and one master tone with a three way switch, as I kind of like the blending pickups option.
    - 25" scale and 22 frets.
    - I'm not too familiar with PRS' neck options, but something akin to an early 60s.
    - Possibly make it semi hollow, or more "semi-solid," just to add a bit more bloom.

    Mahogany body and neck
    Quilt top and headstock veneer
    Ebony board
    Jumbo frets
    Adjustable stoptail
    2 vol, 1 tone, blade switch (maybe like the P22 layout)
    covered 59/09's, or an SE version with covered SE 245's
    ...in black gold wrap. The End.
    This would be mine too, provided it's the ORIGINAL Mira body shape, except without the quilt top/headstock veneer. I'd like the body and headstock to be matching Antique White, with a black pickguard (original shape, not the gross toenail that is the S2 pickguard).

    "Hollowbody JD24"
    True hollowbody: minimal braced top, floating bridge/heel piece. 24 fret, 25.5" scale.
    Body: Dweezil Zappa Sig shape but with separate back and sides design like the HBII. Flame maple top, rosewood or padauk or walnut back and sides.
    Neck: 12" radius ebony fretboard, DGT frets, with flamed maple binding. BRW neck (or natural flame maple), wide fat carve.
    Electronics/Hardware: Nickel hardware, 57/08 neck, 53/10 bridge, one volume, one tone, dual mini toggles for coil split. Volume knob positioned by bridge like on a CU24.
    I will gladly accept a prototype!

    Yeah, Kevin!!! I have been cooking up something very similar for a future build. Two of my favorites ...if these guitars mated you would get sumthin' really close to your spec:
    DGT 245 with DB Thickness + 2007 NOS McKorina with BRW.

    just with a rosewood neck (pattern regular), with ebony f.b and 53/10 pups
