    Hey guys, I am looking to do an extended scale guitar, really I love the specs on the Holcomb limited edition core model and want a CU24 with a 25.5’ scale and 20” fretboard radius. Unfortunately I am too late to the party on the limited run 2015 model and I can’t bring myself to buy the SE model. I own several core models and it’s too hard to go back. My question is, would building a guitar with the specs above and satin finish with the holcomb pickups run into private stock territory or can they be an upgraded cost on a special order core model? Any PRS employees with some thoughts? Any extended scale models being produced for the experience maybe that might be close to what I am looking for?

    If it’s not currently in production, Private Stock is your only option... unless something used comes along.

    Thanks. Reverb had some listed but they moved quickly. I’ll keep an eye on this.
