    And this is mine:

    Okay... maybe they aren't that similar... but that triangle of nail holes in the lower bout kinda freaked me out... Summer's prettier though...

    They do appear to be related!

    My general Reverb approach is to find 'make offer' items and offer about 75-80%, then be amenable to a little haggling via counter offers. If they don't budge, then I usually walk away. However, I recently had a seller tell me what their margin was in the counter and I totally respected that.

    I'd like to find a Reclaimed Vela but haven't seen 'the one' yet. Mine has got to have three things (besides sounding and playing well):
    1) Very dark fretboard
    2) Dark and grainy top with both sides close enough to blend
    3) Some gnarly nail holes that are nowhere near the f-holes

    Considering the nature of the wood, I'd really dig a Vela with no pick guard.

    Hi There are 4 for sale new in dealerships in the north of England 3 × 2nd hand ones and 2 ordered didnt like and sent back shipping is $85 i think it will still work out cheaper if thats what you want. I have left the uk this morning on my way back. But things are cheaper and good cash deals to be done there.

    Man, my vela came with a mint looking top with little grain streaking and no nail holes or knots.... kind of opposite of what I wanted but, when I ordered mine everyone else was out. I checked everyday for another one to come up and never seen one. The CE-24s came up all the time. Some of these look amazing!

    There is a new RL Vela up on Reverb for MAP.

    I am therefore guessing the shops are starting to get in the last of the manufacturing run. I wonder of PRS has anything similar lined up for next year, and whether they are thinking how to get the production run smoothed out more - the first 80% of these RLs seemed to get slammed out in about 2 months, then it was trickles over the next four months.

    Mother of god, I can't handle this pressure. I have one already and it's to pretty I need one that's mean looking. If I see one for sale, I won't be able to resist. Hell, there's a fire mist purple semi hollow Mira I want also. I guess, sell all my other guitars and go strictly PRS. Shawn, you're always such a tease.

    I hope that first one is headed to Sweetwater, and then my front door! I was doing good with the waiting thing, until I saw this!
