    Since I started the gun shop a couple years ago, I simply haven't a whole lot of spare time to play guitar, or cruise the forums like I used to do. This is the first thread I saw when I logged back in here. First off, Congratulations on 15 years at PRS, Shawn. And of course, congrats on a truly stunning instrument. It's all gorgeous, but my favorite feature is that figured mahogany neck. It looks like a spectacular guitar. Enjoy!

    You know... I was thinking that at almost 40,000 views(not including IG and FB), documenting the build, and what it has done to not only drive more sales of guitars, but also what a fantastic employee recruiting tool this is... You should totally get another employee build because of it. It's almost like this one shouldn't count because it's like, a business expense or something.

    Tell Paul and Jack I said it's okay.

    Or you could authorize a new Paul Reed Sergio prototype build for him... You should really start working on the signature for it.

    I couldn't agree more! Let me speak to Paul about it. I'll let you know what he says. :)

    Shawn have you ever been on the receiving end of a PRSh “Really?!” ??

    Or have you signed an NDA?;)

    I think everyone has, but one of the cool things about Paul is that he will listen to you explain why and will consider a well reasoned position.

    This was just a reall great thread and journey. I’d pay to have a video series like this as part of any PS I order. Thanks, Shawn

    Sounds like everything on it that's wood is going to be figured, that will be awesome, we have to see it.
    (You know we all want to play it). The forum needs a library guitar that we can play for a week and then mail to the next guy, ha.

    There is a forum guitar that made a tour collecting member signatures. It might be in Chicago these days.

    I don't think so. I shipped it around to several members after Sergio passed it to me. It made an appearance at the last Experience, and then went quiet.

    It needs to make trip to the Southeast and through the South.
