    ...with the stones to build the Forum Guitar (Rev 4) through the Wood Library program?

    Yeah, I said it. :box:

    I never heard back from PRS on this and promised to stop hassling them last time I brought it up. I am guessing they aren't going to consider it. So... time for Plan B.

    EDIT: I am already getting email and PM's on this so I suppose I had better put this following disclaimer out there:

    I have no control over where this guitar goes (or does not go) from here. Colors, specs, prices... it's all up for grabs. All we can do is hope that all of the work you guys put into these details don't get ignored. I am putting this project out to the universe in the hopes someone will step up and make it happen. If a dealer picks up the idea and runs with it - or if several dealers do this as a group effort (like Gretz, Meader, and Martin did with the SH Singlecuts) then they have full control over whatever they want to do. Plan accordingly.

    Who needs a wife when you can sleep in a shipping box?

    Will UPS deliver to a random street corner?

    I'm not a big guy, but I don't think I could fit in one guitar box. You better order 2 Alan.

    (Just looking out for you. :wink: )
