    I have waited almost 18 years to say this...NGD!!!!!!!

    After nearly 18 years of wishing and dreaming, nearly 7 months of waiting, and one production restart later, I have finally fulfilled my boyhood dream of owning a customized PRS guitar!

    I got the call yesterday that my dealer was notified that it had shipped, and he called me this morning to let me know that it was there and ready for pick up. I had to sit through an utterly pointless meeting until 4:30, at which time I may or may not have grossly exceeded the posted speed limit to get to my dealer's shop. But there she was...ready to finally come home!

    The pics are crappy, and I apologize for that; all I've got is my iPhone, and the lighting was at dusk and not very cooperative. I'll try to post better pics later.

    I'm soooooooooo happy right now...

    Worth the wait, I'd say! That one is gorgeous. Can't wait to hear how you like it.
    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.

    If THAT is your 1st PRS new guitar day, you've set the bar pretty high for whatever comes next.

    Congratulations!

    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
