    Totally. A Wangcaster that sounded like angels would still be a Wangcaster.

    I dont think so. It was on his "story" which is automatically deleted after 24 hours. I saw it yesterday and this morning. It was up for a really long time, id imagine the full 24 hours

    Apparently Paul was asked about this at NAMM. He clammed up, but they persisted and asked “this year?” And he said “no way”. So I take that to mean NAMM 2019. ;) Got plenty of time to speculate......

    I'm conflicted about this.

    I love PRS guitars, and the specs for many models (neck carves, radius, scale, fret size, etc) usually fit me very well. Pickups and tuners can always be changed if needed to tweak a PRS even more to your tastes or needs.

    However, a Strat is a different animal. They are quirky guitars. I'm 56 years old and have played a lot of Fenders in my life. I know what I want in an ultimate Strat, and Fender does not make it. There were always things I wanted and needed to make it a better guitar for me. And what John Mayer wants in a Strat isn't what I want either, in that I've played his older F sig models. Close, but not there.

    I'm sure PRS is very capable of making John's ultimate S type, and that's great. A lot of people will dig it and buy it. But PRS will also be in competition with Suhr and others that will make a high quality S guitar to your specs. 7.5 to 9.5 compound radius on a fat V neck with jumbo SS frets, your choice of woods? No problem.

    PRS is not typically a derivative guitar builder. A limited run here would make more sense to me, and not cloud the PRS brand image.

    What they did was actually take the DC3/BM/NF3 body directly and change the pickguard :)

    Personally, i dig the pickguard on this more :)

    Can anybody see that it looks closer to the DC3 body shape than a F strat? I'm trying to determine whether it really looks smaller than a F strat or not. If it were smaller, I'd definitely be into that.

    For some reason, I always thought a NF3 was a wider/flatter body than the DC3.

    If people want chocolate make chocolate if people want vanilla make vanilla. I would certainly give it a go!!

    Anything that helps the brand is good for all of us PRS lovers.

    NF3 and DC3 are same body shape. Yes, I think this looks very similar if not identical in shape, just with more traditional style parts added on.

    Someone on FB claimed to have played the proto and said the pickups were fantastic. No detail, just that they were winners.
