    I'm in this weird place...I just keep thinking a Mira made from reclaimed pine would be absolutely incredible! As an ower of mostly opaque PRS guitars, I'm a fringe Forumite in my thoughts on beauty. But, I'd say a roots/homegrown looking PRS would be cool. Kinda like the Satin models, but not. I'm not talking relic'd...just vintage.

    Just a thought.

    I think having a bamboo topped PRS would be very cool as well.

    My wife and I have a bamboo table and I can't help but wonder what a solid bamboo guitar would sound like.

    I guess if one were to acquire enough old wooden toilet seats, something interesting could be made(not for me, thanks).

    Gonna have to be one big-a$$ piece of bamboo unless you like glue joints!

    But I'd like to see/hear it!

    With a set of \m/ pickups, I'm sure it would kick ass :)

    Private builders have been doing this for years, making Fender body copies made from reclaimed wood. Fender seems to be getting most of their recent ideas from reading guitar forums and seeing how people are making their own versions of strats and teles from scratch, or combining various parts to form new mongrels (Pawn Shop series, for example). I love how PRS as a company is pushing out innovation rather than copying what individuals on the Internet are doing.

    Shawn, I see a new Forum/PRS project in the works! Ship John a set of \m/ pups to install in that table. It's so going to rock!

    Maybe Gibson can reclaim some counter tops!

    I'd guess it's a Ron Kirn Barn Buster: http://www.ronkirn.com/tele.htm
