    Man. A guy takes a small trip and the world explodes.

    Let's see...
    At 10PM last night I was in the hills of West Virginia....
    without internet...
    asleep.

    It's gonna require that I sell more guitars, but:
    IF a slot opens up or IF Hans and PRS extend the run to include latecomers...

    My name is Bill
    I'm willing to commit to this guitar and put down my deposit if PRS approves the run.
    My dealer is Coffey Music.

    And that, folks, is how it's done with class. Thank you Bill.

    IF PRS agrees to anything we're talking about... you're #32.

    You're 33 Dave.

    Remember... PRS has agreed to nothing. The hard part will be talking them into making it.

    I have not been on the Forum much recently, with 2 Private Stocks in the oven, I haven't had much GAS.

    But a DC22 Forum guitar? Count me in if more than 25 are being contemplated. 100%. Would be happy to do a deposit as Hans requests on the original post above, with a commitment for.

    The 245 scale is "my scale", have 3 245 Private Stocks and 2 more on order, and just committed to a trade on a Santana today, for my ME Ltd I got on a trade from Howard Leese. I had two of the Musician's Friend DC22 guitars, one from each run, STELLAR guitars!

    I would LOVE another one, especially with a two piece bridge and Paul's Guitar 408's.

    Picking a dealer is the toughest part, I have a few GREAT pushers. :D Okay, Eric at Willcutt's, he is my 245 guy, my partner in crime on the epic Wood Library Ted Run, which I owned a good portion of, and the co-conspirator of 3 of my 245 Private Stocks!

    Ok Pete... IF PRS is willing to build this forum guitar, you're #34.

    I'm not sure what surprises me more, getting 25 people willing to write a check in 73 minutes flat or the fact that more people keep piling on.

    No worries. You're #30.


    Remember, PRS hasn't signed up for any of this. The next step is for us to send the request.

    IF... PRS agrees to our request to make this guitar, you're #35. There is a distinct possibility they will decline our request.

    Keep your expectations in check.

    Hans - Just curious, is the headstock veneer going to be dark ebony as well or will it be Chaltecoco?

    All names in this thread and specs have been given to the PRS CEO along with a request to consider building this guitar.

    When/if they ever consider it, I'm sure you'll hear about it. Right now it looks like a no-go.

    For historical record, several dealers tried to get this guitar made as a Wood Library Run. It was a bridge too far.

    I thought it was a great attempt, though. Would have been very cool.

    I certainly left some teeth on the floor trying to get it made. I learned a lot in the process so I'm grateful for that.

    You gave it a man-sized shot. Can’t do any more than that, right?
