    The White Westie.

    View attachment 4575

    Would you change the color, or spray a clear or matte finish on it as it is?
    What tuners?
    What pups?
    Trem, obviously, but what finish?
    What knobs?

    This is Sergio's dream guitar, maybe he should weigh in first.

    It's fun to dream...

    The safest thing to do with this guitar is to send it to me just the way it is. That way nobody gets hurt, there's no pox on anybody's house, no reason for Paul to have to lock his car anymore...

    Just leave it in a clearing in the parking lot at the next Experience and let nature run its course.

    I love it when a player and his dream guitar find each other.

    So yeah, what's the story with this guitar?

    Reverse video of my black one...so keep it white.
    Don't care what knobs or tuners, but wings would be cool.
    85/15 pickups.
    If the dragon has to be covered for it to leave the factory, I'll uncover it when I get the guitar.

    Its story as far as has been revealed here so far is that it sat on the floor for a long time. No idea if it was a cancelled order, or a spare body from the run or what. I guess it's time to have a dealer look into getting it finished, though the tape suggests that might have been done by someone already.

    Edit: adding mine for reference on the reverse video comment.

    A really mild opalescent sheen? That way it stays white...-ish, but still gets some pink added to it.

    Or how about a pink binding? Or is it too late for a binding?

    58/15 pups, black lampshades, black PVD everything else that I can...

    If it was for me -- magenta! (Purple-pink.)

    Not much chance PRS will let an unfinished guitar out of the shop...

    And winged tuners are a must!

    Personally, I think it has to be blue. Sort of a greenish, pinkish, yellowish, reddish blue. Actually, I`d spray it with prism, which is a multi-color mica flake topcoat. The hood of my hot rod is that color over silver. I`ll drive the car to Stevensville so that Paul can see it, and then I can take the guitar home when it`s done.

    This is Sergio's guitar. I won't disclose my wishes on how it should be finished. However, it should be added to his Baby Gifts Register, or whatever you call it. We should all pitch in to make sure it ends up with him. Kickstarter anyone?

    I would make it Translucent Pearl White if possible
    Phase 3 tuners
    85/15 LT neck ( Brushed Hybrid covers )
    59/09 Bridge ( Brushed Hybrid covers )
    Hybrid original Mann Made Trem or the new one from the Santana
    and I have cash ready ;)

    ( I could get it to Sergio after I fondle it for awhile )

    Thanks for the info, but there aren't more details? What's a Westie? Why is it painted white? Especially if it has a beautiful dragon inlay in the body???

    A Westie is a small run of Santana guitars that was done a few years ago, former called West Street. They commemorated the original location of PRS. Tops were sappelle and had a small dragon below the bridge.
    I don't know why this one is white or if the white would be as opaque as it currently looks when finished.
