    I heard he gets a small commission on everything blue that leaves the factory

    True, but he gets double the comission in a discount if he buys one.

    just to clarify how do I know it isn’t a grounding issue ? I’m using brand new mogami cables as well as a strymon Zumba as the power source so everything is pretty clean. The guitar is less than two weeks as old too

    I just bought a 2019 moc sand to replace my 2018 horizon, and the neck on the 2018 is much glossier than the 2019. The 2019 feels like a true satin finish. I thought maybe I was crazy but even my wife agrees. Did the finish on the necks change between 2018 and 2019?

    Most probably the old one feels more glossy from playing...

    I could be wrong, but I really don't think I played it nearly enough to make the difference that striking.

    I have an early one from March or April 2018 and I played a couple last month at a shop, (new blue and sand colors)
    I didn't notice a difference.

    Don't mean to get too personal, but have you been polishing it?

    Nope.

    But I am glad that people are curious and trying to figure it out, rather than ripping me for replacing it 100% for the color.

    we don't rip people for replacing guitars here. Although as a group, we do seem to have a strong preference for just buying more without selling the ones you have. Unless they aren't PRS. But no, I'm with you. If I had bought one and next year they came out with a maple fingerboard version, I'd replace the old one with a new maple one.

    You know NAMM is coming and could introduce more interesting colors once again...
    Here's to a new one next year!!! :D;)

    Also I have refinished guitars before just because I could not find the color I liked....

    As a lefty, that's a common MO for me. 2 of my guitars are "used store finds" that I disassembled, refinished, changed PUPS, and made the guitar I'd never find in the stores.

    Well, yesterday, I hadn't planned to buy anything when I walked into my dealer of choice.

    The other day a local Silver Sky owner brought his guitar in for some fine tuning. It's one of the first 500 with a case and plaque. That alone is cool, but the best part of the story is that he actually gigs with the guitar. It was taken care of, but you could tell it has seen a lot of real-world action. I understand the idea of collecting guitars, hell I have a nice collection myself. But it does my heart good to see people gigging with their PRS guitars.
