    1. Paco de Lucia. I have a whole thread devoted to this exact subject so I will spare you all.

    2. David Macklovitch from Chromeo. He is also the lead singer, and girls like Chromeo.... PRS needs more endorsers from bands that girls like.
    He plays mostly V's and Les Pauls so I would suggest a DGT.

    3. Rob Harris from Jamiroquai. Girls like Jamiroquai, PRS needs more endorsers from bands that girls like.

    He plays Strats and Musicmans so maybe a 305 or a swamp ash studio? I'm sure the chances of it showing up on stage would increase if you made one with a Ferrari logo on it.

    That IS a good pick. Just saw him for the first time and loved the vibe. Hope he continues to develop. He sounded kinda like a Robert Johnson/Hendrix/Lenny Kravitz/Ted Nugent sort of meld (threw Nuge in there for a bit of extra edge!).

    Guitar choice would be tough though....he's an earthy, elemental type of player, so the guitar should reflect that. McCarty maybe?? How 'bout a SC HB with no piezo?!!

    I had fun with my list. It's based on artists I really dig. It would look different if I was trying to maximize income.

    1) Ihsahn
    2) 7's were just released. It's time to start thinking about 8's. Ihsahn would use a wealth of PRS guitars. He's an icon of the genre.
    3) PRS Custom 24 for the older Emperor stuff, PRS SE for the 7 String stuff, a PS 8 String for the newer material. He needs a JA-15 too. And a bass.

    1) Gojira
    2) I think they have an interesting message and a good sound. They would look great rocking PRS.
    3) Custom 22's. I'd put the bass player on PRS too.

    1) Vildhjarta
    2) These guys came out with a record unlike anything I have ever heard. It's ambient but so slamming heavy. Might help with a production model 7.
    3) SE 7's and PS 7's. I'd put them on a production model 7 if one was ever released.

    He is a freaking amazing guitar player and is involved with several prominent recording and touring artists. Brother Cane, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy(recording as Black Star Riders).
    A Signature SC245 would be ideal as he is an LP junkie...


    DJ Ashba
    Stellar guitar player/song writer and would give the brand great exposure to a sizeable demographic. He's in Guns N Roses and Sixx AM.
    408 MT Trem would be versatile enough to cover all the ground he treads...


    Doyle Bramhall II
    I'd just echo the sentiment above.
    DC3 or 305...

    When I saw that, thought, wow, I can play a little but a endorsement i'm not that good, then I re-read it and the 1st name was wrong... close but no cigar

    i went with a HB spruce top and P90 combo based on his Collection of Epiphone casino's with P90's.....especially that candy apple red one with the chrome P90's.....mmmmmmmmm....I also like the piezo addition although I originally didn't....either that or give him an Angelus sig as well....check out his mellower clips.

    This,

    or....

    1. Tim Mahoney
    2. No more Standard line and no 24 fret stoptail.
    3. US made Standard 24 stoptail to match Tim's light blue guitar.

    Or....

    1. Ben Burnley
    2. Popular band (Breaking Benjamin) and very unique model
    3. 24 fret Baritone Hollowbody

    Yeah, after I re-read your guitar choice I really liked it. It would seemingly be ideal for him......heck, I'D LOVE a spruce P-90 HB myself, especially in SC form!

    Great choice.

    I'd go a with...

    1. Kevin Cadogan (original guitarist for Third Eye Blind)
    2. He's incredibly tatalented
    3. Hollowbody II or better yet a KC signature model.
    He isn't too active anymore, but has a loyal fanbase and is a monster player. I'd buy a KC sig in every color.

    Mike Einzinger of Incubus has been back playing PRS after a notable hiatus. May be a good time to bring him back into the fold for good.

    Too late now but I would have liked to have heard Gary Moore through a Modern Eagle with 57/08's. I know he played a PRS briefly early but it was his metal phase, would have loved to heard his blues through an Eagle.

    I too would like to see Keith Urban hooked up with a PRS - I'm sure people would buy his guitar.

    I'd also submit Ian Thornley. He has such a powerful voice it is easy not to notice how good he is on guitar. I wouldn't presume to pick for him, but suspect he might like a swamp ash with a 3 pack of narrow fields.

    1) Who would you suggest?
    2) Why?
    3) What is the PRS Model you would recommend?
    1) Neil Young

    2) Cause old Black needs to be retired....and "Z" needs a new reason to be enthusiastic over the PRS line


    3) a Black Singlecut with a Bigsby
