    Most excellent! I really enjoy hearing how Paul explains what he's thinking and doing with his designs.
    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.

    I'll tell you what, when I heard Paul play live, it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. After hearing what he has to say, you quickly learn that he can practice what he preaches about tone. Would've liked to have been in the audience for that one.
    -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.

    Like 'em (PRS guitars and/or amps) or don't like 'em...no one can contest that Paul's tone was phenomenal.

    Thanks for sharing, Shawn.

    So, is there a limit on "dibs?"

    Man, that was way too short. He would've needed at least an hour to cover those topics in meaningful detail.

    Paul is definitely an industry treasure.
