That works for me. Paisley case though - curved, not rectangular

I only spec’d one PS, and luckily I used a tried-and-true recipe, so I knew what I was getting myself into, and besides, Paul Smith helped pick the woods!

My other PS and Core models have been runs that Paul Smith spec’d. I know zilch about guitar making. His job is to design and build ‘em, my job is to buy and play ‘em.

It works out really well. But I sure admire the guts of those of you who are willing to drop five figure money on your own designs! Out of my league for sure.

I have a lot of ideas, that's why I have never actually pulled the trigger. I find that I can usually be satisfied with a basic model that has been upgraded to an Artist Package, 10 top, or WL.


Body shape: Custom
Body construction: Solid
Body wood: (Meh, how about something different...) Alder back, Figured Redwood top
Finish: Natural
Body binding: Ivory
Neck shape: What ever 'Wide/Fat' is these days
Neck wood: Mahogany
Fretboard: Dark Rosewood
Headstock shape: Standard
Headstock veneer: Match Body
Neck binding: Ivory
Inlays: None
Headstock inlay: large inlaid pearl signature
Truss rod cover: NONE
Frets: Standard
Fretboard radius: 10”
Scale length: 25"
Number of frets: 22
Nut width: Standard
Tuners: McCarty vintage
Nut material: Standard
Bridge: One-piece wraparound
Neck pickup: 57/08 brushed
Bridge pickup: 57/08 brushed
Volume: Master
Tone: Master
Push/pull: NO
Switch: 5-way blade
Strings: .09's
Case: Paisley

I would want the control layout to match my Dustie Waring CE24. I have a couple of CU22s with the 5-way blade, and I like the DW layout better. It's more "natural" for me having come from Jackson prior to PRS.

Everything else is a fashion accessory now.

What is it about PRS guitars in Antique White that just look so elegant, simple, and beautiful?

There’s a white Santana 25th Anniversary that’s been up on Reverb but the guy won’t budge under $3500. A white DGT going for $2200 was gone in like two weeks. Gorgeous!

Not much of a metal guy and haven’t been able to play one in person but people keep mentioning the Dustie Waring control layout. Educate me please!
