If I want to purchase say a Hollowbody II in a certain colour, but want to see photos of the guitar before I accept the purchase/order, would I need to order it as "Private StocK", even if nothing was different from the standard model?
Here in Australia we're lucky to find a retailer that stocks PRS USA models, let alone stock more than 1 copy of a particular model.
To get a particular model, the retailer would need to order it from the Importer/Distributor, who would then order it from the factory. No "Try before you Buy".
I've got more chance of getting what I want, and "seeing" it online before I buy if I order from a foreign website in UK or Japan, but I'm not to keen to pay out $1000's in the hope that the guitar is shipped promptly and arrives undamaged.
Info please. Any US retailers who ship to Australia?
