    Awesome stuff Shawn! Thanks for posting the series.

    Will Paul be doing this with another group of employees? And you'll be recording and posting it??:)

    Paul will continue to hold the weekly classes, but I won't be documenting them like I did with this project. However, I'm still documenting my 15 year employee guitar build process, so there are a few more videos coming in the near future.

    This is the correct question. You need another guitar.

    I spoke with Johns Hopkins today and I was told that the guitar will be auction off during the annual PRS sponsored concert. No date has been set for the convcert yet, but I told them there was interest in online bidding, so as soon as I get more info, I will post it here.

    So we finally wrapped up this session of Paul's Guitar building classes and here is a shot of the completed guitar.

    Moving forward, we've decided that each of us will build our own guitars with Paul overseeing each of our builds. One person wants to make a 25.5" scaled guitar with a bolt on neck, one guy wants to make a fretless bass, another person is considering making an electric cello. This is going to be a completely new set of challenges for all of us, but it should be an amazing experience for all involved. We are expecting this to take at least a year to complete.

    I think that might be the most beautiful PRS I've ever seen.
    I'm usually not a big fan of quilt over flame, but it's PERFECT for this. It looks like real flames (not flame, FLAMES)
