    One particular chilly October morning, after having indulged in the various nutritional offerings at a certain Cracker Barrel, I ventured upon the atrium of the PRS factory in Stevensville where I was ceremoniously greeted and escorted to the Vault by none other than Paul Miles and Tina, the PS wonder twins of the universe. This serendipitous occasion having been endowed with authority by the grand master Doug Diamond, we all paid our respects to the ensuing projects at hand, I entered the Vault and began what would become the Creation of my third Private Stock, PS#6077--a semi-hollow DGT.

    Sparing unnecessary bravado, the process was, as you would expect, amazeballs. I chose my wood, I poured over the details three times or more, I sensed the power of enlightened blessing from the spirits of the great guitar makers in the sky, I completed my sheet, took the obligatory swatch and billet photographs, graced the all with praise and left feeling like three hundred million dollars.

    I saw the guitar in the white at Experience 2016 unexpectedly, which allowed confirmation with the great Dave of what my finish vision was, as well as preview the curvaceous specimen in gestation:

    He took our short conversation back into the hallows of tint and stain wonderment, worked his magic and produced the finished result below. The great DFD emailed me today with preview photos of the beloved axe. I literally can't talk. It's just gorgeous beyond words. Here it is, PS #6077 in Iceberg Dragon's Breath:

    The finished result is beyond whatever I thought it would be. This is, to my knowledge, only the second Iceberg PRS finish in existence, the first having been created by Brian of Brian's Guitars, a singlecut in Iceberg Crossfade which sold at Experience 2016. Brilliant, Brian. Thanks for your creative genius. And many thanks to the mighty DFD, without whom my PS journeys would be relatively, well, much less rock n' roll. D, you are the man.

    Tone report incoming once I get this saucy Betty in hand! WOW! Until then, enjoy!

    Beautiful. And nice choice of platform. The semi-hollow DGT known as "Miss April" keeps finding herself in my hands. :)

    Holy *%#! me running with a chainsaw. :eek::cool:

    That ticks off so many of my PS list items. When you get your hands on it, I'm curious how the maple neck influences the DGT motif. Grand slam, bud...grand slam.
