    New member here so hi to everyone.

    I recently became the proud owner of a DGT Standard & just wondered if there is any information on how many of this model were made in 2012?

    Many thanks

    Kieran

    Hmm...at least two: yours and mine! Congrats on a truly superb choice in a guitar. :cool:

    Now, where are the damned pictures??!!

    (First, you’ll have to post two more times then drop your photos into a hosting site)

    Welcome!

    They made a bunch but only for a limited time so all things considered, there are not a lot of them. Of all the models I've liked over the years, that is the one I wish I had jumped on. :(

    Yes I found it strange that the model doesn’t get a mention on the PRS site which seems to list every other one! It’d be nice to know I managed to hold out for one of their rarer species - absolutely loving the guitar after just a few weeks use

    I’ve never considered them rare, but PRS slathered on the mojo with the DGT Standard. It’s every bit as fantastic as it’s maple-topped sibling, to the point where I’d easily have one of each and not feel excessive for a blatant duplication. Just such a damned nice model!

    Yeah rare is prob the wrong word to use but I get ya - ideally I’d have another one with a maple cap but that day can wait! Me happy

    Beautiful! Way prettier than mine, but then again, I’m not known for stunning guitars. But Mr. Clean sounds fantastic! Sure yours does too.

    I have a real soft spot for white guitars -that’s a pure beauty

    dunno what I’m doing wrong but my photos aren’t displaying correctly (on iPhone) when I use the image URL - maybe because my post count isn’t high enough yet?

    Thanks!

    Photos need a direct link to work...no dynamic references. That means it ends with .jpg or .jpg, etc. I don’t have an Imgur account, so maybe someone else can be more specific. I think your post count is plenty high.

    I just opened the image from the imgur page in a new tab. That gave me the direct link to the pic. It looks like https:/ /i.imgur.com/jMfyPu7.jpg without the extra space between the slashes.

    That old thing? Yeah, it’s been lounging around here for a while or so.

    Here it is before a lake party gig in 2013. I’d picked it up earlier that year.

    and at another outdoor bar gig in 2014...
    [​IMG]

    Then again at a dive bar later that year...

    There’s gotta be over a hundred of these and half are probably on these boards. They’re easy to miss...boring white guitar problems. ;)
