Can we please PLEASE next year, have some sort of number associated with each guitar so we can track these things down? Assuming this has a pattern neck carve, this is the EXACT guitar I would want, in the exact, special order only finish I would want. It's out there in the world somewhere.
To everyone I shared a high five, handshake, drink, food, ride, hotel, shirt, smile, conversation, hug or Skype call (spot on Timmy!) with thanks for much for the amazing time. I already miss you all so much.
I'd like to share with everyone a few photos I took during PRS EXP 2013.

Look how skinny I am!!!
Tim Pierce is amazing. I have to work on a positive attitude and saying what I mean and nothing more...I think it comes naturally for him.
Markie thought they were going halfsies. This is him scratching his head when he realized that wasn't the case.
To my man Moss and The PS Crew...the end of an era...the start of a new...it was an epic time gentlemen. Thanks so much for everything!
To everyone on The PS Crew...you guys are kings amongst men. I sincerely appreciate every moment. Thank you so much. <3, Jesse. See you soon!
And back home to my wonderful wife. The 20th was the 17 year anniversary of our first date which is normally a day we celebrate together. I missed you babe. Here's to making it to MD together very soon.
So it's a trade off for me... do I want to have a fun weekend, or do I want more gear? It's a tough call... I've been to PRS events at the factory, before it was the 'official' Experience. Back then they were unofficial PRS forum events (the forum that morphed into TGP). I went to the 2nd of those events and it was a blast! They let you bring guitars back then and Paul rented a restaurant on the bay after a day of tours at the factory. Every table and bar was covered with guitars. It was a blast. Paul & the Dragons played, one of the employee bands played. Paul sat at a table and signed autographs for an hour or more. There was an open jam hosted by Garrett Park/Rick Hogue the next night (we got run out early because Maryland was in the NCAA tourney).
Any way - I know these events can be a ton of fun. I just can't afford to go every year...
1) book air fare early
2) stay at country inn and suites, stay Thursday night and Friday Night. 2 days max ( $250 total for both nights)
3) Hotel includes free breakfast, eat heartily.
4) PRS provides water, you can get jumbo hot dog for $4 dollars
5) get a shuttle from the airport to hotel if you go to country inn suites you can ride with me to the event and back.
6) plan to have someone drop you off at the airport so you don't have to pay parking.
