    First let me say, this is a magnificent instrument. I played it for several hours over the weekend and I A/B'd it against several of my other guitars and all I can say is wow! I love this thing!

    OK, here are some crummy iPhone pics I took over the weekend.

    Don’t know why, but when you said “mysterious white amp” I thought of this! My brain ain’t right!!



    Perhaps it should have a white bunny put on the front at production stage!

    Shawn, I've heard really good things about these PRS Guitars!

    Am I saying that right, PRS Guitars?

    And as an added bonus to the new guitar, my son decided he'd like to learn to play. He spent over an hour last night learning some chords and he picked up the guitar again this morning before school. My heart is overflowing!

    I feel your pride, mine did too recently.

    Such a good feeling to see them learn!

    SO awesome Shawn!! My son picked it up recently also...but the only evidence I get is when I go into his room and notice the guitar cable is in a new spot...It's great that your son is so gung ho about it!!
