I miss the old PRINTED catalogs from the 2,000's!
Is there a printed PRS catalog for 2015?
Anyone have an extra copy?
Or specifically a brochure on the 2015 Santana?
I miss tactile porn too. What am I supposed to do when the internet or power goes out?
Local storage and laptop or tablet. And a UPS is helpful.
Uh, I mean, that's what I hear...
You heard correctly!
And we can speak our opinion of your opinion. And then you can tell us your opinion of our opinion of your previous opinion. It's a free world...
...except it isn't. This forum is hosted by PRS, so they make the rules. If they say, all you can talk about are PRS, then all you can talk about are PRS. If they say you can't give Paul a hard time for not offering a core 7-string, then I can't give Paul a hard time about not offering a core 7-string.
ooh, subtle one there at the end, almost didn't catch it...
btw, for anyone reading, I wouldn't mind a core 7 stringer...
Funny thing is, PRS (perhaps PRSh, in fact) seems to know their market just fine, and if you wait long enough, you'll find what you're looking for. My problem is I have a backlog of about 10 PRSi that I intend to purchase (maybe 9 now, after this weekend), possibly on the used market, so any new realizations of my fantasies would just be icing on the cake, the cherry on top of a very nice sundae, etc.
Well I wanted to thank all those who took the time to talk with me and argue with me about colors and body styles etc.
For an update:
I ended up going with an existing brand new semi-hollow instead of a HBii. It's a Custom 24 tremolo with 58/15 and like the HBii is also an artist package, with rosewood neck, hybrid hardware and abalone birds. It's also the custom color I was wanting in the HBii that they wouldn't let me order. I got a great price on it and saved a couple grand. I might still buy an HBii with 58/15's but won't order one. I can get an existing one for considerable savings in a different color. So in a few months maybe I'll get a green one or even black gold. How many guitars do I need? Lol 4 PRS's might be enough until I want the 5th.
Here' some pics of the guitar. It's Violet Purple Burst. What looks like black is actually a deep purple. But I won't be playing Smoke On The Water. Lol
Thanks again for your support.
That's hot, David.
Thanks. I'm pumped. Can't wait til it gets here.
That is sweet!
You already want the fifth. Time to think about number six!
LOL, I haven't picked out a 4th yet. And the 3rd isn't hear yet......Just one more guitar.
That is smokin' hot! Love the quilt, and the color! You chose wisely!
Dude, is that a Honduran rosewood neck?
Yes it is. Here is the description from the dealer:
Violet Purple Burst, Artist Grade Quilt Maple top, Mahogany body, Laceloria fingerboard with the Green Ripple and Paua Bird inlays, Pattern Thin carved Hondouran Rosewood neck, Laceloria headstock veneer, PRS 58/15 bridge and neck pickups, PRS tremolo and Hybrid hardware, PRS Phase III locking tuners, 7.6 pounds, With the Black Paisley hardshell case
As a side note, I had never heard of Laceloria and the dealer told me they hand picked the wood for all the guitars in this run. They didn't know much about it other than it was a very high graded wood from the wood library. So I called PRS about it. They didn't seem to have much information on it either, other than it is similar to rosewood and ebony in look and musical resonance but of a different genus. I have done internet searches and can't find any information about it. If anyone knows something about it I would love to hear your input.
Anybody see/have pictures of the DGT with the neck binding? Wheels are turning but I haven't seen much on it.....
You have chosen well. (promoted to the next level)
PRS builds and sets their prices for the guitars, amps and options. You get to decide if you agree with their valuation by making a buying/passing decision.
