    Yeah, I imagine that would be potentially problematic considering the fact that the Santana body shape is basically a Gibson Les Paul Jr. I assume PRS isn’t looking to do the whole lawyer thing with Gibson again.

    I find it disheartening to know there aren’t at least twenty cool affluent people in this whole world.

    Back when I had the means, it was a weight issue for me, as most were between 9-10lbs and my back has decided 8 is a hard limit.

    Otherwise I’d still have this one :(

    Sheesh they’re all works of art. You’ve clearly been a purveyor of fine art, WA Paul!

    It’s baseball season, how about a killer triple play from our friends at Lark Guitars?

    My interest has always been the older guitars and the one I liked the most on the now retired Vintage PRS site was this one, a simple 1985 pre-Standard with moons. So this is my pick for the best I don't own.

    I’d spec everything that’s on this build. Might’ve gone with Peruvian mahogany neck as I’m not familiar with Kingwood. Might go down to Chicago in a couple weeks to check this out and see if anyone is looking to buy some slightly abused organs.

    Almost went for that one myself...timing was just wrong.

    I love that the PS certificate says “exceptional grade quilt”....it certainly is!!!

    A dealer told me Kingwood is like ancient Brazilian RW, maybe more dense? Few I’ve seen weigh a ton!

    Figures that highly figured piece of quilt was on a fiddle in your collection before being freed once more in the wild ;)
