    To the OP you should live in Podunk Alabama...I'm at least a 50 mile drive to the closest civilization...or at least any civilization with some taste...apparently.

    Same here on the Teles...I have one local music store that I have desperately tried to trow money at...to no avail...they stock only Squier Teles and a couple of decent Martin acoustics. It's really sad I just needed some strap locks...waited two weeks, went back and still no strap locks in stock...stopped by yesterday...still no strap locks and now it's been six months...smh.

    So, don't feel bad...you are not alone...just keep rockin the PRS. Remember not everyone can/knows how to appreciate the good stuff! Oh and be thankful that all your neighbors aren't married to their first cousins. So yeah, at least you have that.o_O

    I did post it in excruciating detail on my NGD thread last summer - nearly a year ago now :)

    The last person I saw gigging a PRS locally (other than myself) was my buddy Greg. Of course he is a dentist (retired) so maybe that does not count.

    So he’d be the guy in the all-dentist, all-singing, all-dancing band, right? ;)

    .

    OP .. I think you need to start with buying a couple of ebay/Reverb SE models and putting them in shops on consignment or CL in your market. When those sell try a few more and/or S2 and so on. You'll be the local dealer...

    I look just like Brad Pitt.”

    “Not really.”

    “Ask my wife.”

    “She says you look light years worse than that guy.”

    “In my mind, I look just like that guy.”

    “So does your wife look like Jennifer Anniston or Angelina Jolie in your mind?”

    “I refuse to answer that question, and assert my fifth amendment right to remain silent.”

    Me too. What I'd do though is get Paul to approve me as a PRS only dealer here. Then I'd set up a store full of spec'd out PS beauties and capture the R9 and tele markets totally. Make millions in a couple years and expand until all musicians on the W Coast loved PRS. ;)

    I got a rare Saturday afternoon to myself - so I went to the Guitar Store and hung out with Ted! Last time I saw him was picking up my PS build. Good time trying out several guitars including a Silver Sky, Exp Ltd Semi Hollow, WL CE24 and a used Westie (which weighed over 9lbs - shame!). I get the reason why folks love the SS and Ltd SH - great guitars! Also get the Westie love - I really should have one!

    I don't see many in the upper Midwest. But Prs is still a small builder compared to most of what I do see. I don't see many G&L either but those are also fantastic guitars. It's all proportionate. I bet I could only find a handful of new PRS' for sale at the roughly half dozen guitar shops I go to locally. One had to clearance their stock of Prs guitars out because no one was buying them.

    Well, I know several local guitarists who have PRS, but Gibson, Fender, and Epiphone are by far the most prevalent. You see others too. It doesn’t help our local GC has usually about 2 PRS in stock. Our other big store Dietze doesn’t stock them. We do have a local store Lidgett’s who carries quite a lot! Oh btw, we live in the Omaha metro. We just bought our first PRS off Reverb last night.
