    I really can’t wait for these to come in...fortunately I have a few things that might show up before then (as in tomorrow) that should distract me for a while...

    Brian displayed amazing patience and his usual Uber-coolness in helping us get that 509 run done.

    I currently have a 509 that I am happy with. It maybe just 'standard' Mahogany/Rosewood but that is a great combination for me and not looking at getting a 2nd 509 - at least not at the moment with other guitars I would 'prefer' to add to the collection first.

    Thanks for the info though

    Like @bodia , I am in on that other WL run from Brian's for the 509. I think many or all of the folks who would have picked that model for this poll already got in on the other run, and so interested is not surprisingly low.

    Can't wait until Nov/Dec for that 509!

    And although I just got a couple new PRSi (truly new), I have a used model on the way to me now that will also entertain me until then...

    You’re good at this! If I couldn’t recall doing it, would that be an example of craniofartography?

    If you deny taking the photo (or farting) you’re a “Notmeelance Fartographer”

    Those who take pictures and forget are referred to as “Forgotparazzi”

    Mira (started as a core so it qualifies. They could make a core retro)
    SC245/250
    Paul's
    DGT (or any other signature if we are including the Santana)
    CE
    SH's
    HB's
    And since it has been requested, all the S2's for the price conscious
    SE's if we want to include every price point.

    While I was only thinking of core models, if you want a poll that gets the most participation, the S2's and SE's will show that.

    @AP515 , some nice ideas there, but I think we established via the pricing-range poll that this would be a WL core model. The Mira is no longer core, neither are the SC-250/245, so PRS will flat-out refuse to do it.

    An S2 run would be affordable, but even less likely to draw the attention of PRS. I'm not sure how PRS sees the CE for WL runs. SE is out of the question, from what I gathered.

    I think a dealer wanted to do a WL CE run and PRS said no.

    The agreement from PRS is for a current core WL model.
    Models from this page: http://www.prsguitars.com/products/core/
    That nixes the S2s, SEs, SHs, CEs and the SC245/250 and Mira. The current core Paul’s Guitar is a limited run unto itself, a very limited Limited Edition.
    In previous threads, no one expressed any interest in HBs, any model with piezo or Floyd Rose, the DGT or the Tremonti.

    I get it. I'm not trying to stir up sawdust. I just saw that a number of models were missing. I personally don't see why a model can't come out of moth balls. Isn't that what a Santana Retro is? But ya'll know more about what PRS will and won't do than I do.

    I think a WL 24 fret Mira would be a fantastic forum guitar and could come in at a price point that would let others in on it. Reclaimed wood Velas and CE's come to mind. PRS could tweak a model like they did then and lots of forumites would jump at that price point.

    The Santana Retro is in the current core lineup.
