    controls lay out could be strange. if the 408 wins, we will have 3 mini toggles, 1 pick up switch (I'd vote for the blade one), magnetic volume, piezo volume and tone. geez, it will look like a BC Rich from the 70's...LOL

    Good point, Alex. I saw a Sig LTD with 408's wired up with a custom 5-way blade that was fantastic. I can't recall the exact layout but it was very efficient.

    we have to wait until we decide what configuration it will have. but trem arm can be on the way of the controls (too many). if we can have the 5 blade to simplify the controls, I think we will have a best seller...LOL
    man, this whole vote and plan thing is making my day so light.

    I'll except nothing less for a forum guitar now, I will even go one step further and vow to rock a blue guitar and stop bitchin' about 'em.

    Sounds really interesting! The control layout could be like some recent private stocks we've seen with three mini switches insted of the two in the Sig electronics, or even maybe P22 electronics with the 5 way and maybe a push-push Tone coiltap??
    Oh, have we thought about the headstock yet? A small eagle perhaps, like the rosewood neck Cu24 experience (2010 I think)

    So here's what I see shaping up...

    A DC22 Trem (Piezo) with narrow 408's, a Chaltecoco neck, and BRW fretboard.

    And a black Paisley case!



    So, is this where the project lies right now?

    I love it - everything about it is unique and really makes a guitar special enough to represent our little family. Only thing I would request is that we give it the traditional PRS headstock and not the Santana/Ted a la the famous and elusive Sorcerer's Apprentice guitars!

    I completely agree with this. Maybe we can get them to do a flame maple veneer as well?

    It'd be nice to leave the HW color an individual option if possible. I am 100% out if it's gold H/W - I have 2 guitars with gold HW and it's 2 too many.

    Agreed. I'd like to start scheduling my time on the couch after this purchase.

    I love playing guitar in my house shoes. I think we are getting pretty close. Black paisley and Piezo trem seemed put us all on the same page.
