First off , if any of you fine folks have yet to play one of the US made PRS Acoustics , do your selves a BIG favor and search one out. They are MUCH different , and well worth the effort to find ... just when I thought I was done buying guitars ... A lovely mate to my all Pernambuco Tonare.. watchlist for now ...

The Coco one is Peruvian Mahogany , not Pernambuco they only made 5 of those .. the other 4 have ebony fretboard and bridges . The all perni tonare is a unicorn .. a magnificent one ... THIS is MINE .. being played by the late Al Pettiway ( RIP)
My bad, did not read properly! I still say buy it!! Your future recipients will appreciate it ;~))
 
Whoa, that stopped me in my tracks for a few min! Congrats, that is awesome!
 
The Holidays, and other Life priorities have to take a momentary precedence . I've been good .. didn't buy 1 guitar last month! ( after a 14 month Bucket List spree it is time to take a short breath) I do wrestle with the save the money for Hospice or enjoy it now and sell later ...

Totally understood! Your run has been mind boggling!! I shall however, persist to enable!!! Merry Christmas Brother ;~))
 
Regarding the Carbon fibre truss rod , it's rock stable , especially great for switching tunings . The only down side is if you don't like the relief PRS has dialed in ...for me it's flawless. Steven Fischer is not the only luthier that uses CF in necks .. it's a trend that's building now that reliable sources and routing jigs are available. https://dragonplate.com/how-carbon-fiber-d-tubes-affect-musical-instrument-tone

Oh My! WOW!!
 
After 2 days of intensive searching .. I decided I'd go ahead and snag it and just spread out the payments instead of one lump.

This one was love at first sight , and while not a McManus it's as close as I will get , and the price was just too good to pass up.
