    Would it help if I brought a couple of things over for you to put your hands all over? Of course, I'd have to wear protective gear to ward off the poison!

    ohhhhh, now I get it! "CARD blocking!" You had me there for a minute. I mean, at first, I was thinking, "well that would be a kick in the groin." But yeah, Card Blocking. That's different thing altogether and you don't feel the urgent need to puke and sing falsetto afterwards. Unless you did before, I guess.

    So stupid question of the day:

    I just (finally) signed up for the Signature Club. Dunno why I didn't do that before. Oh well.

    To register for Exp 2018 as Sig Club member, I need my Sig Club membership number.

    Do I receive that in the mail, or will it be emailed to me?

    You'll receive it in email. I think mine took about 2-3 business days.

    Who is the lucky dealer that will be selling the special guitars there?, i still think forum members should be able to buy direct at least once a year, from the PRS show, and save at least the dealers profit. and all signed at the factory, with a certificate,now they could be more sought after in years to come, rather than signed after they leave the factory .(no risk of a fake signiture) especially the one offs being offered for sale, could be a good investment.

    So, I’ve seen a few pics, and a video or two, but I have no idea.... how many people attend these events? Curious about just how many people go to these. Anyone have numbers?

    If memory serves, the first year (2007) was around 700. The peak estimate I heard was around 2700. The past couple years, they've made changes that have kept the numbers a bit lower (don't remember hearing numbers for those), but the last couple years have felt a little less congested.

    The one thing I did hear the last time (and the way it was spoken made me think I wasn't supposed to hear it, so I hope I'm not speaking out of turn) was, "If he's here again, it's still one too many". I'm not sure who my wife was talking about - never asked.

    As an attendee it's hard to guess how many are there. Some people spend the day, some people only make a short visit of it.

    There are many dealers selling guitars, but I don't think you'll find any doing it for free for forum members. Forum members seem to be a "special" group and they make the Experience special in their own way.

    OK, just got my Sig Club registration info (two full business days, over a weekend), and I have registered for Experience PRS 2018! And since I have pre-ordered a $20 shirt, I better make sure I get there, eh?

    I do hope I find a unique and special-to-me guitar at the dealers-floor - it is exactly the kind of impulse buy I usually don't do, so it would be a nice treat emotionally.

    I wonder if there will be special variants of the Silver Sky there, like ones with maple boards? If so, I will snatch one up faster than you can say "dibs!"

    Is that your Experience t-shirt? Just for Experience?

    Nope - just wore it because they were doing the Sig Club pics and I knew I'd be able to find me. Otherwise, I'm just a fat guy in a (usually) black T-shirt.

    There are quite a few dealers selling guitars at Experience. I'd guess 10-15 different dealers.

    Typically all of the dealers sell the Experience guitars.
    Each dealer grabs a bunch of guitars that become theirs to sell. There have generally been more not claimed by a dealer and if you want one of those, any of the dealers can hook you up with it. I’ve been very happy with the pricing.

    If so, what is your home address? Asking for a friend.
