    Just joined after buying a 513. Always wanted a prs. Knew they were fantastic guitars. But between playing mine, and seeing this, not sure I can buy anything else. Fwiw I was thinking the violet would be my choice, but I was probably wrong. This thing is gorgeous.

    Just bought it off Reverb? I may have sold you that guitar if it a tobacco type burst.

    Yep. That was me. Thanks again. I am loving it. :D Biggest problem is it has me wanting another PRS or 10. A singlecut 594 is probably what I want the most now. But there’s so many others that I would also take. I was honestly looking for a 305 when I found yours. But happy with how I turned out.

    Great! my PRS addiction began in 1990, perhaps Shawn will make your next, probably had a part in making the 513 you have now, the time frame is correct. :cool:

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it! PS - My 16th anniversary is coming up next month. Sadly I have to wait until my 20th anniversary to get my next guitar.

    So you can get that one presented - or thrown - to you at Experience 2022.

    When Shawn catches it, it will show how much he cares about it. Especially when there’s a “purple” guitar hurtling through the air toward him (nudge, nudge, wink-wink!) ☔️☔️

    Wow! That us a stunning guitar and it must be really cool to see your guitar built step by step.

    Pretty cool you guys get a guitar at 2 years! After 5 years at my job I got a $300 watch.

    I'll hit 20 years this year. I think I get an e-mail.

    Not joking.

    Hahaha, most of us will wait their whole lifes without having the opportunity of getting any PRS employee´s guitar ;-)
    You only need to be patient and wait, my dear yogi.

    Shawn... there's NOTHING about that axe that I'd change.
    The colour/finish is amazing, the neck is to die for, the inlays sublime. But the magic is where you've put it all together.
    Stunning indeed sir!
