    The links are from Facebook, but I see nothing on Mark's FB page.

    Note that is says PS # 5441, whereas the latest PSFriday posts have PS # 6359 and other nearby (and even higher) numbers featured, for example. So the above guitar is about a year ahead in the production line, which means it was probably out the door a long time ago...

    So Dusty, where'd you find these shots?!

    Looks interesting...

    I don't know where he found them, he said he did some digging to find them. A guy named Nathan posted them to a PRS group. I'll post a link later.

    A core 7-string would make me happy, I'm finding I like 7-strings more than 6. Part of me is glad I had to back out of my PS build last year because that gave me a chance to find out I really do like the extra string, so when the time comes to spec out a new PS 24-7 :D

    Mystery solved. Jcha008's PS 5441 in burl and Ziricote must have been developed with this template. He had Bare Knuckle pickups placed, the treble position must have been routed wide to test various pickup positions. Search it here on the forums and you'll see some wicked pictures. Quite the beast.

    Would have been nice to drop a Core or PS Holcomb 7 String... Maybe it has a future?
