    Hello all
    Although I love birds but the moon inlays have a unique vintagey charm that I like,
    so WHY DID THEY PHASE THEM OUT from the core line?

    Birds sell guitars. Simple as that!

    They phased out moons in order to keep the older guitars even more desirable (and therefore keep their value up)? :D

    I guess when it comes to moons, "Go Used or Go Home".

    You better get one of both before they really become expensive!

    I mean next week they could all be shipped off the Christie’s!;)

    I think we’re just under a new moon phase. However, I’ve not calculated the duration of a month on Planet P

    I dig the moons on my McCarty and CE24. Birds are also awesome as seen on my other PRS guitars.

    But I just enjoy PRS guitars......

    I really like the moons on my Soapbar II Maple, they just look right on that guitar. I like the birds on all my other guitars equally, but the ones on the SE Paul’s are just killer IMO.

    Proud owner of an '89 CE24. Electric Blue with maple neck/FB. The moons make it even specialer.

    It’s been quite a while since I had a PRS with moons. But I like the moon inlays a lot. If I get a DGT at some point, it’ll have moons. And be a goldtop.

    I already have plenty of birds and fancy woods.

    Grr.....I want another DGT! Mhaogany top and neck with a maple top. Solid colors and moons are fine with me so long as it plays and sounds like my current one!

    For the life of me, I can’t figure out why I never got one. I mean, they sound great, and have a sweet vibe!

    Well, the obvious reason is that you have never laid down the cash to buy one. Haha....

    But is it just me or have prices jumped recently?

    I have to agree.....they are awesome guitars. Sound great with a sweet vibe! It is my favorite guitar to take to rehearsal......

    Yes Les......you need one! I can't pin point what it is, but I have some other nice guitars and they are all found wanting after playing it. The guys in the band can hear it. When the drummer can point it out, well, you should listen!

    obviously because if you want them, now you have to go private stock.
