    I'd like to see another run of the Mahoney model. They pop up on Reverb from time to time, but for way too much imo

    Three of my favourite PRS'S are discontinued models: a 2011 JA-15, 2011 305 and a 2013 NF3.

    The JA-15 I think would be on more peoples lists if they had a chance to play one: and incredibly versatile and inspiring instrument and as mentioned, nothing currently like it in the PRS Core lineup. Also, those 53/10 pickups are everything they have been advertised to be...

    305 is the only "strat" I have ever liked...mainly because I hate the way they feel. The 305 is strat-ish in a warmer and bigger way (close enough for me) but plays and feels like a PRS!

    NF3. Man, what a great guitar. The highlight being those narrowfield pickups. I just LOVE their attack, clarity and balance!

    One discontinued guitar that has been out a LONG time that I would love to see happen is an OG style CE 24 with an alder body and maple board. I have only been lucky enough to play a couple (a buddy owns one...won't sell) and both just ripped! Alder and maple are pretty plentiful, so I don't think it would be hard to do and would be a cool addition to the CE/bolt on line.

    I have a line on a Pearl White alder CE with a maple fretboard if you’re looking.

    The NF3s are really nice. I think I’d swap my Silver Sky straight up for one in equal shape. I should’ve kept the white one I had, but you know that story!

    They just seem like completely normal tuners to me.

    I just realized ALL of my current PRSii are discontinued: 513, SC HB II, core Mira, P22, SE ONE. I definitely know how to pick 'em!

    I was looking at the PRS site this evening and just realized that the core Custom 22 was discontinued. I was a bit shocked by that one.

    OMG! Yeah, they kinda snuck that one quietly out the back exit..! Holy heck, I love my CU22 and it ain't going anywhere--it's terrifically versatile. And not once have I ever thought, "Man, if only I could go higher on the fretboard..."

    I foolishly sold mine a couple of months ago and instantly regretted it. Amazingly stumbled into a still-new charcoal model last month and immediately grabbed it.
