    Things I thought I knew:

    Can’t gig a 15 watt amp for hard rock, not loud enough - wrong

    Can’t do 408/TCI pickups and switching on an SE, too much proprietary stuff to be replicated at a lower price - wrong

    Can’t do hollowbodies on an SE, too complicated of a build to be worth it - wrong

    Can’t make a true S2 594, the S2 line is only set up for 25” scale and pattern regular carve, deviating would negate the cost efficiency of the S2 manufacturing process - wrong

    Is anything I perceive actually real? Are any of us really here? Are we living in a computer simulation that uses guitar design to test how far reality can be bent before we refuse to accept it???

    My devil’s advocate scheme has not gone well. Henceforth I shall only deal in positives.

    First prediction: S2 594 Semi Hollows are already in the works.

    S2 594 Semi Hollow would be so awesome.

    It's a good, convincing simulation. Just run with it! :D

    Beware of cows running across interstate highways with large women chasing after them with clubs. That is all.

    What about Shinola? I know Mike Shinoda is a PRS artist, so I’d hope at least some of us know him.

    Maturity (alright... age...) has taught me that the more I think I know, the more I realize I don't know....
    Good life lesson to remember....

    It's just that Paul can access parallel universes to see what other Paul's are doing.

    You know, the universes where Bodia keeps all of his guitars, where we all visit Les' basement, and other Sergios are friends with skunks. (edit: I keep thinking of raccoons as rodents)
