    Been looking high and low, but I can't seem to find a Wood Library guitar with this combo of specs:

    Swamp Ash Back
    Maple Neck (satin finish *only*)
    Pattern Carve (pattern or pattern regular)
    22 or 24 Fret (not a 22 Special)

    I can typically find 3 out of the 4, but it always falls apart on either the neck finish or carve

    Wood Library guitars are spec'd out according to whatever you/ your dealer want the specs to be. imho, ymmv

    Actually I think you are referring to Private Stock guitars from the vault...

    ...I'm specifically talking about the Wood Library dealer run of guitars that *they* pick out and we either like the options or we don't.

    Why not just order exactly what you want in Private Stock? It's unlikely that a dealer spec'ing out a guitar for a WL run will tick all of your boxes.

    Believe me...I've considered another PS, but if this combo existed in a WL run I could save a *TON* of money!!!

    I get it. But if you can't find what you want...

    I had the same issue when I wanted a maple Tonare Grand. Couldn't find one. So went PS.

    Well, right now, WL runs of the SSH are at a bit of a peak, so they are going to dominate the market. Hang a while, and maybe someone will do a run of the 35th anniv guitars.

    But why no SSH? Don't like middle pickups? If that isn't the case, maybe look for a 509 WL? I have one with Swamp Ash back and maple Satin neck.

    The wood library 509 run a number of us did through Brian's Guitars fit this description nicely (assuming you are into the 509 model...and really, why wouldn't you be). They are great guitars. I believe he is still expecting one or two of these in sometime soon...give him a call.

    I didn't see your specs available right now, but Moore Guitars always has a lot of PRS Wood Library guitars and their site lets you refine your specs a great deal (left hand side of page). Super handy if you are looking for a Brazilian board, certain neck carve, or color.

    Are you looking for States-side dealers, or are you willing to go international? There's a dealer I've seen in Indonesia that has some absolutely INCREDIBLE builds....many with the specs you've mentioned.

    All of their Swamp Ash bodies are 2 or 3 piece. At least outside of PS. We found that out during this run. At least I did.

    You could always have a luthier lightly sand the back of the neck. A buddy of mine did that with his silver sky, and he loves it.

    Yep, and I don't think any of our feelings were hurt. I thought they did a good match on piecing the backs together and looking nice with the grains!
