    I saw this listing and it was an instant buy!

    I think it might be a prototype for a Paul's guitar, I'll explain why I think so with each pic.

    I've never seen this color, I don't think it's listed anywhere on the site.
    The headstock seems to be a bit different shape. A rebranding perhaps?

    New pickups and a new bridge? TCI Gen II? The input jack has also gotten a face-lift.

    Obviously Phase IV tuners, seems like they are also experimenting with custom hanging methods.

    I think this was a skunk works guitar, note the clearly hand-carved inlay. Looks like Paul is experimenting with slightly larger fret wire as well

    Let me know what you think of this find! I know it's an actual PRS as

    I managed to order it directly off their site! Came right from them, probably some kind of inventory mishap, but I'm not about to send it back!

    I hear that there can be strong physiological reactions from emotional trauma like extreme envy!
