    It was awesome meeting up with Shawn for lunch the afternoon pre-build day. He was my first contact with anyone at PRS and I love hangin' any chance we get. Shawn, thanks for the mini tour!
    Did a little shopping at the store Monday then headed out for some drinks, followed by dinner at Bridges.

    My first trip to The Vault. An incredible experience, I must say. I've got to first thank JFB for letting me know about the opportunity to make this trip. Next, JustRob, for his hospitality in picking me up, carting me around and giving me a place to crash while in town. Huge thanks to Brian, Paul Miles, Tina Sears, and Paul Smith for rolling out the red carpet for us. It was an awesome time. It's something I highly recommend doing. Brian has been awesome to work with so far, great with communication, feedback and advice. Thanks to Eric Brushett for taking all of the killer photos from the day! Great photographer.

    Follow the birds across the Bay Bridge!

    Awesome everything on that one Vaughn. It was a pleasure having you as a guest and you/re welcome anytime brother. Just wish we had gotten pics in our shirts. It was a whirlwind of a visit. Thank you.

    Nice! Looks like it's going to be a work of art.

    But of course, now you have to let the wood dry all over again!

    Glad you could make it and had a great time. No doubt this trip was the sickest run I have ever seen. Tons of lumber and it was all beyond nasty. Incredible, incredible stuff. The spirit bird is pleased.

    That top might be the one of the bunch. The back is certainly one of two. :tongue:

    This is all just so cool. This is one of the reasons that I love this company and their products. What an awesome experience this was for you. Anyone who hasn't done this should be blue with envy. Can't wait to hear and see what this bad boy turns out like. Congrats!!!!

    You know how bad it was for me trying to resist quilted hog! I just couldn't do it, I would've thought about and regretted it for a long time. I hear ya. It was pretty crazy, I think I just slept out of pure exhaustion. Thanks again brother!
    I knew that was coming. :rofl: We saw catwoman, a demon and it just felt destined to be mine. I almost talked myself out of that top cause I knew the clown thing was gonna get brought up. Hahaha

    No doubt. It was straight up nutty how awesome the selection was! Those backs gotta be in a group shot. I'd love to get all of our builds together for a family shot sometime!

    I don't see catwoman, or did you mean on a different back?

    On the top, not the back. Look for the ears!

    Looking forward to it!

    i just realized I never heard the end result of your dilemma. I've never seen such agony over a backplate, but with that back it's easy to see why.
