That is a GREAT Axe Pete! congrats!
There is something very special about making your own personalized creation in the Wood Library, my experience has totally changed in the last two years, where I went from flipping 50+ production PRS in four years to creating these 5 personalized masterpieces that are absolute keepers! I definitely prefer the latter experience of my Private Stocks, but I think I needed to go through the journey of the many guitars to hone in on what I created with the private stocks, my beloved DC 245 Ted McCarty (and a couple of SC's just to mix it up!)...

Certainly nice to build and be expecting.
I have a tremendous appreciation for what the PS team, Jack Gretz, and Paul R. Smith accomplished in selecting woods, creating and building my acoustic. Heck, all I did was state a few preferences, and they went to town making an incredible guitar!
That's the way I wanted it, of course; my thought was to let artists to do their thing. I can't honestly take any of the credit.
But I'm as thrilled with the result as if I'd put in a lot more effort!
I do have a plan in mind for down the road...one that might be more of a one-off. But that's still far enough off in the future that it is still something of a pipe dream.

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.
