Thank you. yes, I am very proud of my years in service and the amazing guitar
Beautiful guitar congratulations. I work for Toyota building the Corolla which is a higher volume vehicle and they are being built every 57 seconds approximately 480 per shift. The turn around time is about 20-24 hours from shell body to final line. I can't imagine the tundra is being built that quickly but I'm going to find outMy brother in law is at that plant this week I'll ask him to find out.
I heard that stat about Toyota trucks on the radio, so it might not be accurate.
Not to mention @Shawn@PRS, sourcing timber, it’s transportation, storage, preparation, developing/buying cnc, programming cnc, maintenance, skilled labour on necks, fit, finish etc. etc.
On the words of PRSh “l could go on and on and on and on!”
There’s a lot more to you guys than just the build! More ladies and gents in the background, making PRS work (unsung heroes).
Based on the videos I've seen of all the hand sanding and the hand work for the neck radius I'm actually surprised at the 20 labor hours figure. I would have guessed higher.
I have always liked PRS and while I am pretty happy with my lowly SE, this "build thread" was fantastic and I feel really motivated to finally get an upgrade, although I am following through with the tuneup on the SE, more importantly, it really built some value into the guitar, something I haven't really felt about the more expensive guitars to this point. So thanks for sharing the process, clearly I am one of many who was moved by the building process of your guitar. It really is a piece of art. And a helluva of an ad/marketing bit...... ; )
Thanks Jet, I appreciate the kind words and I'm glad to see others have enjoyed seeing the build process. The attention to detail and level of quality everyone at PRS pours into their work is amazing. I'm so grateful to be able to work with such a talented group of people! The factory is closed today, so I'm going to fire up the amp and put the SC594 through it's paces (as soon as my wife leaves for work)
Yeah! SC594 Friday!
Well this is a cool thread. What a cool thing to see, nice guitar man
Wow! Who is this handsome man?!
I think I’m having PSF withdrawal symptoms and YouTube is my crutch at the moment!
Any chance we can get Solana back as a core color choice???? Hint hint!!!

The best guitar build thread I have ever seen. Congratulations Shawn and thank you.
Yep, so good.
Michaels build thread should be fun too! (Hint, hint!)
Yeah I know that you’re so busy with the SS and everything else at the factory. But a “forum brother” can dream!
wow.. just wow.
There's some good ones in there. I remember the older DGT's in Dark Cherry Burst, might have been just Cherry Burst, with J-Bird inlays. Those were the jam. I still lust after one .
