    Mondays suck for many reasons...for me the long wait until Private Stock Friday is one of those reasons. Many of us have cool Private Stock instruments, several of us have been lucky enough to travel to “The Vault” to be involved with the wood selection process. There are quite a few PS story threads and “Before and After” PS threads documenting the process...most w broken links galore thanks to the PhotoBucket debacle. Maybe we could post them all here...every week...on a Monday...to make the wait until a Friday a little more bearable?

    The gateway to nirvana....

    The boss helps me sort through a pile of BRW neck blanks...to find....”the one”.

    Lots of cool tops (and maybe backs?) to choose from...decisions...

    Besides Fridays, I also miss the days of yore when we saw exotic stuff like violin guitars, collection series launches, pernambuco wood, celtic knots...

    Ironic that the doors to the “Vault” aren’t book-matched!;)

    Oh my! Thanks for letting us peek in the vault...killer wood! I see the pics of the vault, the PS grade wood, and I see PRSh... but where are the jackets I don't see the first one...very disappointing...:( I really wanted a jacket pic...

    Happy Monday!
    Since this is the first week I’ll post another to get this going...

    This one is a song of fire (no ice...maybe one of you guys with a frostbite PS can post it here???).

    From the vault:

    Special thanks to Brian for putting this one together (and most of the pics).

    Hope you guys can post some of yours too...to help us all make it through another Monday.

    Well they are both the same “species” (DC 594s)...so I’d expect some “ice dragon” offspring. Anybody want to contact PS to spec a “Viserion Burst”?

    Good idea Tosca. I’m a bit early to start building at Habitat today so here are a couple photos I saved from the ancient wood to guitar thread. First visit to the vault with Mrs. Just before they closed it up Experience 2010.

    Each door is actually perfectly book-matched down the center (just not to the other door).

    Great idea. I think my PS thread may have been a casualty when the forum changed servers or whatever. My one and only trip, I'd like to do another but not sure I'll be able to make that happen again.

    I should've started with these two, as they were the night prior to our build day...

    Having some drinks with the crew at Bridges(I didn't wanna be annoying so I handed my phone to Rob for the incognito selfie shot):

    Drinks lead to hijinks after hours at the factory(I seem to recall the Spirit Bind landing during "The Witching Hour" at Paul's parking space)
