    2018 or not, my HB always gets the spotlight.
    I've had it since 2001 and have already had a re-fret & a re-finish, fit's like a glove.

    I don't disagree at all. Until I got my Private Stock about a month ago my most played PRS was an 86 CU24. Not as refined but very cool.

    I might add that your 1986 is totally badass!!!

    That is a guitar I’d love to own.

    A guy dressed up like Mithrandir, and you suggest "Ent" as a neck wood. Outrageous. It's clearly "Mallorn." Only Saruman would make a guitar neck out of Ent.;)

    I’m never gonna look at my guitar neck the same way again. Poor ents. Maybe the elves can help?

    The SS. I was in the store when the salesman called the company to ask if I could order one with crackwood(you can't because JM says so).

    The customer service person said if I didn't place an order a month ago, I won't be able to get one for a year.

    For 2018, this one. Crackwood indeed! I suspect this will change in another 3-4 months though...;)

    Cool for me...maybe they will have a non signiture by then...I utimately would ultimately like to see black with a maple board....preferably in an SE, ya know...because I'm poor that and because my CR is keeping my GAS at bay for now...well those and the threat of a violent death at the hands of the ginger goddess....if I spend more 1000... she's still mean ....

    With all the PRS guitars I have, I replied my 1990 Whale Blue has been my #1. Now I can’t put down my 300 Limited Edition I recently purchased. It’s just that unbelievable to play. All my PRS guitars are custom 24s, signatures, etc. except for my Santana and Tonare Grand.

    It is that fun to play cannot put this LTD guitar down. Pics of my two favorites, you’ve seen them separately but what the heck here’s pictures of them together.

    This is my 94 Custom22 that is stamped as a B-stock.
    This is my "burning-house-and-you-only-can-grab-one" guitar.


    PS- Here's a bonus way too dark headstock shot.

    I know! It really is incredible to look at. Problem with a lot of PRS’s to pretty to play...... until you do, then you can’t put them down!

    Thanks

    The one I keep picking up is still my '89 CE. There's something about the neck, it's not a wide thin but it is thin. Is that what the regular profile was back then? It's just so nice to play and sounds amazing:

    I bought mine years ago from the PRS Forum website. I believe it was a different Forum than this one. Perhaps someone can chime in and help me remember.
