    Thanks a lot Shawn. Now when I'm finished lusting after guitars I won't have in the future on PSF, I can come here and lust after guitars I didn't have in the past.

    Shawn,

    I just want to chime in here with everybody else. Thanks very much for this thread. Amazing! One thing that strikes me, as I'm sure it does a lot of others, is how many of the fundamental features and designs were right on the money from the get go. Sure there have been - and continue to be - refinements, but so many elements have been there all along. Very cool.

    Lloyd

    Thank you so much for posting those great pieces of PRS history! I saw a photo some years ago of the blue guitar and I kept thinking that it looked like it had more than 24 frets but photo wasn’t so clear. Man I’d love to play that or any one of those guitar.

    Bought my first PRS in 1990 and never looked back. The only electrics I use. I even have a Tonare Grand acoustic I can’t put down... sorry Martin. PRS, the Guitars that changed my playing, inspiration, and life in so many ways...... I love learning about the history.

    Shawn, can’t believe I’ve only just seen these!

    Thanks AP for reviving this thread l, good work!

    I love the mineral deposits in the top and the handmade roller nut. That’s some precision luthiery to make that fit into the fret board!
