    I think it is wonderful that a charitable organization is going to realize an incredible increase in it's ability to provide aid to someone , but oh how I wish my second PRS guitar could be that marvelous tool of musical invention............

    Dang but this guitar turned out stunning! Thank you Shawn, this thread has been a blast for us lurkers, and an excellent education for anyone interested in Paul Reed Smith's build process.

    Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it.

    Paul has been out of town so we haven't done a session recently. Hopefully we should be back on track in a couple of weeks.

    Too bad the more elderly of us couldn't apply a little grain filler and nitro to keep our skins smooth and crack free!

    It's unbelievably cool that Paul takes the time and effort to put his personal stamp on so many of the things that make PRS Guitars so sought after. I have a piece of scrap wood personally signed by Paul from gear fest '17. I am sure he has many many things to accomplish every day. Yet he feels his customers rank very high on his list of to dos.

    If this thread gets another 1.2 million views, it will be right up there with the Private Stock Friday thread. :)

    I´m not agree with Paul in the last video. The one with the finishes.
    He says that nobody wants the guitar cracked... well, not cracked, but I want my guitars to age with me. I would like, in 20-30 years, to tell my gig/playing stories and my guitars to tell the same thing. A 30 year old guitar with a shiny look is weird for me. I don´t like the "beaten to death" look either, but some wear could look cool.

    Just me? shawn, this shiny-forever is a Paul´s thing or is what the people ask for?

    Basauri, I agree with you that a guitar should look well loved and played. I have to play mine everyday and my vintage Gibson SG looks it with dings, scratches and buckle rash. I think the point Paul was trying to make is that no one wants the finish on their guitar to be ruined by fine cracks in the finish that I am sure most of us have seen in many of the 60s-90s guitars.
    Regards Lonnie
