Damn, was not expecting those models! P22 and a proto? @11top - are those kind of a B Mason style electronics or?
I feel like I remember @geese_com have killer DGT at one time. Think someone else here has it now.
They all belong to, like, only 3 or 4 members here. Or, at least, used to. I’ve seen some really nice non-PRS examples, too. But no one wants to see those here.
I just want to hail whomever was the first major guitar maker who thought of using pernambuco in guitars. It’s such an unusual wood, has such a storied history and pedigree, an impressive name, and is rare. It may or may not have been PRS, who knows, but just....great concept man!
My first (PS SC245):
Which got me hooked enough on pernambuco necks to buy these two Collection Vs:
Due to the now non-availability of pernambuco, and after Paul convincing me, I went with poor man's pernambuco (chaltecoco) on my PS 408-594 hybrid:
TWO Collection Vs!! Now THAT is passion!!
The one with the wider flames is my #1 gigging guitar, it gets played a LOT. Everyone needs a backup, right?
Pernambuco on the right, Chaltecoco on the left. Both were once Paul’s guitars. They are also Paul’s guitars, incidentally.
With gigging guitars like these, who needs Collector guitars!
I was told that it was a proto of the 408. And even though there were 5 made, only 2 had pernambuco necks.
Dis one agin........
I showed the front in another thread, but some of you might not have seen my pernumbuco
A couple of months ago was the first time I saw of another acoustic builder using it for an acoustic body. The sound is like nothing else. You'll have to visit to hear for yourself.
Ahhh! I think that’s the one @geese_com brought out to my rehearsal spot. It sounded glorious. Skies parted. Told him not to sell it.
I’d get arrested trying to take it across the border.
Those are all great, but that SC245 will HAUNT me!!!!
My P22 was a dealer designed (Jim at Guitar Rez, a gentleman and a scholar!) unicorn during one of the earlier Collection runs.
Here’s another unicorn I’d love to get my mitts on.... I think Mr. Flametop owns this one?
If I may be so bold as to not limit to PRS, this one has a perny board, over a rosewood neck....Quite an amazing instrument, if I do say so my own self.....
I love those bright sunny words. Just looking at them makes me happy!
