    This was posted Friday. Surprised no one is talking about it. Pretty darn awesome. 150 + year old tops from a grave yard. Or at least trees near a graveyard. The story of the tops and old they are is the cool thing. I dont know where you can get tops that old.

    I saw the raw top that Guitar Santuary had picked out at the Experience from that run. Let’s just say that one is going to be spectacular.

    I saw one or more of these at The Experience last weekend. The trees were that old ("125+ years") when harvested in 2017. Happened to be near a graveyard. Cool story, but nothing in the guitar could justify me buying it (at the expected price - if they were $100, I'd buy a dozen...).

    Others: have at it!

    disappointed these aren’t sourced from old coffins and grave markers.

    anyone see the drumkit dw made from a tree pulled up out of a muddy lakebottom?

    I like stuff from really old trees. Last year (Canada’s 150th Birthday) I had a bottle of whiskey aged in oak planted in 1867 when the country was born. It was really good so I bought a spare which I saved for a future special occasion.

    Brian G. asked me if I'd seen about the PRS Graveyard Friday night. My first thought was, "They're still gonna get money from me after I'm dead...but I'd be buried at the factory, so there's always that." But no. Just a guitar.

    I saw the one at Experience and read the marketing for it. I would have selected a different name for the run. That said, it's pretty, certain to sound amazing and hopefully sells well.

    I wonder if grabbing @sergiodeblanc and going for a 9 hour drive would be considered "special?"

    After my trip to Tosca's 9 hours seems like a walk in the park.

    What model is this? A very special guitar. Nice control covers too.

    I might be close to the same distance from you ask Tosca is, but quite a bit closer for Sergio and Bodia. I can make space for you too.

    Are you saying I should head to Sergio's and then you are picking us up and we are going to Sweetwater?!

    I was referring to making room in my house, not my car.
