    On a related note John Mayer switched to a 594 for a couple songs with Dead and Co at Fenway last night. Big difference in tone from the Super Eagle.

    I think I know where this is headin'.... Is it for sale in the UK and does it resemble the original GOMs a lot?

    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking of selling one of my 594SC's it's a 10 top in blood orange over here in the UK as I've realised I prefer one over the other. I just wondered am I able to post this on forum at all?

    Thanks
    Paul

    I certainly know of five PS 594DCs and two 594SCs, that have followed the same spec and colour, as the original Feb GOM and been offered for sale in the UK; the only difference with the SCs, is the matching wood back plates.
    I've just bought one of the SC guitars, so will be keen to know which dealer Guitarsan's has come from - if it's from the UK?

    Wasn't aware of the similarity with the DC GOM, but it is close!

    Awesome, thanks for the update!!

    When it comes to Private Stocks, to quote Tom Petty, the waiting is the hardest part! (Well, maybe that and the emptying of the bank account!) ;)


    Okay, that is enough to show me that it was not the one I was thinking of. ;)


    Yum, yes! Not Brazzie though, Madagascar. Still on the CITES list and a PIA to get across the pond with the new rules, though... :(

    Thanks, HANGAR18! That was a custom finish I requested, and described in detail with some pics of other classic guitars and in depth descriptions with Paul Miles. He did a KILLER job on it, nailed exactly what I had asked for. Paul and Team do such a killer job with the finishes in the Private Stock program!

    Yes, sorry, didn't notice the Brazzie comment earlier. This is Maddy Rosewood, as you suggest.

    They say it could take up to 8 weeks to process the paperwork (read:acquire permits on both sides of the transaction), but hopefully they're just trying to keep me from emailing every 3 days asking where it is. Surely it will take less time, but, hey, lots less time than ordering a Private Stock from PRS! ;)

    So, while I'm on CITES, how stupid is the whole thing. Here PRS has properly acquired the Rosewood, manufactured a finished guitar with it, and certified same with CITES permit when they shipped it to Europe. With me so far? So why in the heck can't that permit stay with the finished guitar in the dealer's possession, then transfer to me as the consumer? Why the completely new re-exporting and re-importing paperwork, re-permitting exercise? Isn't it the same finished guitar, with the same permit already approved and lineage? How is there any possible violation of CITES Appendix II regulations if nothing has been done to the finished guitar and it's basically "travelling around" in its finished state? So stupid.

    Well, I woke up this morning to an email that says they're preparing for shipment, so the whole 8 week thing above apparently was worst case, and maybe because of the factors I mention above in my "rant", someone somewhere told them "nah, you're good". And we wait.....

    Ah, OK - it was the 'across the pond', reference that threw me. Just assumed UK! ;)
