    I have a serious problem and her name is Makena Blue.

    Many of you probably share my affinity for the hunt. The hunt for a perfect PRS that is: finding exact specs, top, and finish is hard enough with new ones let alone used signature models. Anyway I’ve been trolling on and off for maybe a year looking at Grainger basses since I do more performing on bass these days and previously had a serviceable yet plain P-bass. When this one popped up in Makena blue *and* four string I knew it was the one. Strangely enough, this is actually the first flamed maple top PRS I’ve ever had since my obsession with quilt runs pretty deep too.

    I’m convinced our blue obsession is some kind of synesthesia. But then, blue guitars do sound better.

    Beautiful!

    Now that you have Makena Beach on Maui down, you need Hapuna Beach from the Big Island - Ocean Mist Glow! OMG for a reason! :D

    Very nice examples!
    This is my (first) blue one and I think it wouldn't be my last as I am looking for a faded blue jean. :)
