    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. :rolleyes:

    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:

    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. :p

    I was told that it was a proto of the 408. And even though there were 5 made, only 2 had pernambuco necks.

    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.

    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.....
