    What a beautiful guitar! Thanks so much for the inside look on this stunning build and all the hard working people that make it happen. You could just see the laser focus and attention to detail by everybody that puts their hands on the guitar. Really amazing!

    Thank you. Today marks my 18th anniversary with PRS Guitars, so now I'm only two years away from beginning my 20 Year Employee guitar! :)

    I wanted a Santana for my two year employee guitar, but it was off the table at that time. For 20 years I'm going for a 594 Hollowbody. I don't have any Hollowbodies and I absolutely love that model!

    If I could get a Koa top, I'd jump on it. Unfortunately figured Koa is scarce and it is only available to paying customers. :(

    Awww man...I was only referring to the electronics not the Koa top...now I feel like a jerk.

    (FWIW I think Paul should let you make a koa one...you’ve earned it!)
