Been on this forum reading for years, never signed up but today is the day I guess. I've had a couple of PRS guitars (and a few other guitars) - believe it or not I am a one trick pony, I only have one guitar at a time because I am always moving around and don't like having too much stuff, plus it's just a hobby - I can't justify holding more than one, but if you only get one, you may as well make it special.

Previous PRS models include:

PRS CE24 Satin Nitro Limited Blue Burst
PRS 30th Anniversary Custom 24 Blood Orange 10 Top

Other guitars include:

Epiphone LP Custom with some Gibson 57 PAF's
Gibson SG Standard
Gibson LP Classic
Gibson LP Standard

So anyway, out with the old and in with the new. I've just picked up a brand new Custom 24 Artist Package in Faded Blue Jean. 85/15's, pattern neck as I like my necks thicc ;), gaboon ebony board and paua birds, plus the paisley case. It's a 2018 model thats been sitting on the shelf for a bit.

The best part - The price you ask? Given the sharp drop in the AUD at the moment against the USD, it appears local dealers in Australia haven't caught up with price increases on PRS models to compensate. I landed this to my door for just over $3,000 USD :D

Photos? Don't think I can - I need three posts first :confused: but soon!

BACK TO THE OTHER HALF OF THE STORY - I've heard on the grapevine from the dealer that I purchased the CU24 off that Artist Packages are no longer being offered on core models possibly because they simply cannot keep up with demand or it's hurting their PS production capacity... I tried a search on the forum to confirm this but has anyone else heard otherwise? No more artist package options would be a shame for those who want something a little more special.

Cheers
 
Congrats and welcome aboard.

Now, about this "one at a time" nonsense...
 
Thanks team!

I’m trying I’m trying!

unfortunately I’d love to hold more guitars and a real nice larger tube amp but being in the military, I’m moving around every few years. It’s a nightmare and usually I cram my car with my most expensive assets to avoid the removal company touching them. Heck, last move they destroyed my fridge so I can’t imagine my guitars ending up too good if I had to send them through it.

Has anyone heard of PRS closing down Artist Pack orders? Their website certainly says not available to order as well on their core models :/

If they did, it may have more to do with their back order situation than the availability of AP tops.

ahh okay! I just don't know if I could ever wait that long to order one, way easier to buy one off the shelf in the specs you want as there is usually plenty around if you are willing to wait :)
 
Oh I guess that is three posts so here is the goods as promised :cool:
