    24 Fret HB?

    What is this? Found this online. I've never heard of Ben Burnley or the band Breaking Benjamin, but I guess they're his. Custom inlay, single pickup w/o tone and.... 24 FRETS! No PS inlay, what's the story?!

    Baritone too? There's a YouTube video with him talking about the guitars PRS built for him...

    One of my favorite bands!! He gets all his guitars custom made by PRS.

    Checked out that vid, thanks. I like how he describes using the piezo and activating it using a tuner pedal. No messing with switches and blend knobs I guess.

    I've had the pleasure of seeing the green one live a couple times. Ben is a great front man/guitar player that really deserved his own sig model IMO.

    Love me some Breaking Benjamin. Sadly I think their fluctuating activity and sparse touring schedules might have hindered him getting a signature although I guess we're talking about him and his guitars right now makes that a moot point, right? Still surprised either Ben or Pete (Chevelle) didn't land the signature baritone spot.

    Ben fired the band a couple/few years back. Google for back story... He's been using PRS since almost the beginning of BB, and if I remember correctly, a platinum Standard 24 model? Then when they switched to Drop Bb, for Phobia, is when he aquired the PRS baritone(s).

    Pete also should have a sig model, too! He tweeted some time ago that he was working with PRS on one. Wonder What's Next? ... I tried to be witty there and probably failed, it sounded better in my head. Haha
