    Reclaimed Wood

    I'm in this weird place...I just keep thinking a Mira made from reclaimed pine would be absolutely incredible! As an ower of mostly opaque PRS guitars, I'm a fringe Forumite in my thoughts on beauty. But, I'd say a roots/homegrown looking PRS would be cool. Kinda like the Satin models, but not. I'm not talking relic'd...just vintage.

    Just a thought.

    I think having a bamboo topped PRS would be very cool as well.

    My wife and I have a bamboo table and I can't help but wonder what a solid bamboo guitar would sound like.

    I guess if one were to acquire enough old wooden toilet seats, something interesting could be made(not for me, thanks).

I love how PRS as a company is pushing out innovation rather than copying what individuals on the Internet are doing.

    Shawn, I see a new Forum/PRS project in the works! Ship John a set of \m/ pups to install in that table. It's so going to rock!
