    This one just rocked up, DC22 from the original run #23/25.

    I wasn't even in the market for another (another) guitar, it just popped up on the local market for decent $ so I grabbed it.

    Needs a string change and will wait till I get some more time on it before I post a tone report. Initial thoughts are it's very comfortable with nice sustain.

    Onto the pics (sun was out and then it wasn't, but gives you an idea of the flame):

    Actually a lot nicer than in the "for sale" pics, and I dig the "see Rich Hannon/Paul Miles" and the little smiley face!

    That's awesome man. That's a "Santana" I could rock. Very cool. If they did a standard version or even a Korina, I'd be in trouble.

    Cheers guys, I really like the understated vibe of this one.

    Do you really think I would take a router to such a nice, collectible, limited edition PRS, reducing it's resale value and most likely inflaming hordes of PRS lovers all over the world?

    About 1/2 way down, we talk about a core run they did for Japan :p

    I'm sure you'll feel better with your PS in your hands!

    I like the simplicity of this guitar & it is good looking as well. Enjoy.

    That is an extremely sweeet-looking axe. Nice score!

    How do you like the controls placement?

    It's already got me once (went to grab the volume but missed by a country mile...) but I'll get used to it. None of my guitars have similar layouts so I'm pretty flexible when it comes to this.

    The S2 Mira is a tough one to get used to, the mini-toggles are set up so that "down" is the outside coils, "middle" is humbucking mode, and "up" is inside coils. I'll be going on feel rather than visual on stage I reckon!

    Right on!!! I'm always moving my volume pot while I play. Normally I move it with my pinky while I play so it needs to be kind of close.
