    PRS flying v ;)

    Ok,perhaps a silly question for PTC.Would it be possible to have a Gibson Flying V PRSified?Refinished,PRS hardware,PRS pickups,PRS nut...well yes,basically just the Gibson body with everything else PRS
    I de-modded my CU22 soapbar and made a factory spec setup.Im in love again.I very much believe now PRS guitars are perfect as they are.

    Unlike Tag's re-body, which would be just a crazy project but certainly do-able, I am pretty sure this will NEVER happen.

    No way in hell would be the nice answer I expect.

    It might be easier to buy a PRS, get out the bandsaw and make a Flying V out of it

    Just don't tell anyone bout it... we might get nightmares... I still cringe remembering the Factory Tours where they show them cutting up PRS bodies...

    Hmmm...k...i dont really see the problem really dressing a Gibson body in PRS parts.I have no problem admitting the Flying V model is a personal fav..ever since watching Michael Schecker on swedish tv in 84.I guess this will be a future project of mine
