Attempting to put down these thoughts as nice as possible. I would love if Paul and company read this, truly heartfelt message. Everyone is encouraged to contribute. Dear Paul, Employees and Luthiers of PRS, It is with great passion and utmost respect that I (or we, the members of PRS Forum) have the privilege of using the fine instruments created at your factory. What you started so many years ago has truly blossomed into a incredible amount of love, music and admiration that is shared by music players and collectors around the world. First off, I cannot tell you how many times I have picked up my guitar (Artist Custom 24) and thought about what an incredible instrument I am holding. Every nook and cranny, every seam, screw, inlay and attachment has such an attention to detail. Anyone (player or not) can tell that it was made with love, care and an unyielding level of extraordinary detail that the instrument was not the next one coming down the assembly line, but something the makers would happily write their name on. Simply put, it is not just an instrument, it is something to be passed down in the family, (as you've said many times). Second, unfortunately, I was unable to attend Experience. However, from what I've read, it was a great time to be had. I (We) would love to thank you for the time given to an event such as this so you and yours can give back to the players and collectors of your instruments. It is very honorable and admirable that the creators understand the consumer side of the fence, and having your factory listen and converse with the public is outstanding. Third, I'm sure that back in 1985, things like YouTube, Periscope - even the Internet (in what it was back then), none of us thought that we would be able to communicate and interact what seems like common place today. Your factory has consistently interacted with the consumer and asked for comment/input, and recently, even wood selection and guitar construction on the Periscope builds. Thank you for the opportunity for even entertaining the idea of doing such a gesture. To sum up, thank you Paul, Employees and Luthiers once again for your instrument line. Thank you for the interaction and the attention to detail. Thank you for the Experience, the music, and the love and care that each and every PRS shows.
