Further out of the box even yet, no birds, Rosewood Tree of Life inlay. I've seen them do this or close on some PS already. Check out the '96 Rosewood Ltd. inlay.
Can anyone here display some etched examples of birds. Gold, silver, ab,,, whatever, just for display.
For some other choice and you said more bling. Silver etched birds tastefully enhances any board and PRS. Really going outside the box, how about gold hardware and slugs and 14k etched gold birds. Now w your blue you would have something very special.
Les, we're so much alike. My first PRS was a CU24 in 1993 and I still have it. Since then I've amassed more than I have room for and kept just about all. That's because they each have something special that I just don't want to part with. Gotta love what Paul has come up with!!!
I've recently been pulling out some of my guitars (PRS) for basic string changes etc. that are now 15-25 years old. That's since I got them new. I've now gone through about 8 in the past week. I could swear they all are sounding better than I remember. So I started thinking about old wood...
Like Sergio said, we only live once. that's why you bought it. When I play out of the house my main player is an ME1. Granted not 20K but not cheap either. I've had my PS Buckeye out numerous time and it is in the realm of yours. Just always have it in my grip or vision. Never left in car alone...
Another just came up on reverb. Near 8K as well. Guess people feel they're no good and are getting out quickly. (sarcastic response to some comments on here) Actually they will probably sell. Supply and demand issue for a great guitar to own.
