    You know what is great about this interview? No B.S. , No salespitch, Just hardwork, dedication to his craft and the desire to make the best electric guitar possible and fulfill his American dream. He did it. God bless Him. He is a true role model of pursuing the American dream. Not to mention, the finest luthier of our time.

    "If you print that, I'll kill you!" Yup. I could hear the Paul of today saying those very words. I was also really struck by how he thought he could improve the quality in his new factory -- one of the things that impresses me most about PRS is that the guitars have gotten better-made over the years!

    It is a pretty impressive neck-warmer.

    Didn't notice that until you posted. That might explain why it got that Stratty quack tone better than any CU24 I've heard. How maybe 26 fretters ever got made?
