    Not my cup of tea. I prefer a PRS style guitar with split coil option, because that would be a PRS. If I want something like a strat, I'd buy a strat.

    Nope! I ate him...o_O

    HA! You call that a tirade?! Naa, that was merely a flesh wound, a warning shot if you will. That was me on 6...you don't wanna see me at 10...it's not that pretty. Geez, bro I thought you Scots were more accustomed to a more brutal approach! You know with the whole William Wallace thing...

    Reading the reverb article, PRS'I says basically not anytime soon for a release. This version may be an attempt to start with strat features that make JM comfortable and then morph them into the desired end product.

    I'm a PRS fan boy. I also like Strats. As long as PRS makes the candy apple red, with a rosewood board and birds - I want one.

    Mayer's name doesn't have anything to do with it, but his influence on the design/model doesn't turn me off either.

    Hope it happens sooner rather than later.

    And hope they're not priced like JM's amp and Super Eagles...

    Sweet! Can’t wait! I promise not to play it or anything. I’ll just take the pics and send it right back. :)

    It doesn't make me want this over a 305. As a purely Strat guitar I'm happy with my Eric Johnson. The 305 is Strat like but something more

    Read the article after reading this - there were only 32 comments at the time. All I have to say is...I'm glad most of those folks aren't PRS players because then they might come here, and we're better off without them.

    I think the guitar looks great. I’ve been ready for one since he played it in Boston. I’ve been holding off on a strat purchase since then.

    I’d love one in fiesta red.

    I don't have a strong opinion either way. Not a strat guy so, not really any interest. My NF3 is as close to that territory as I wanna get. As for the politics, John and Paul have a relationship built and if John wants this guitar, then it'll happen. PRS already has it's identity. A sig guitar for someone doesn't change that.

    So you’re sayin’..... “__Money talks, BS walks... and I will have a better strat than all you Fender boys. :p_”
    (Fill in the blanks, boys and girls. I already have my quote already. Bet someone else steals it within the first 10 replies. ;))

    There is a lot of negative sentiment on this guitar on instagram & the Gear Page. I'm looking forward to its release and trying one out.

    Amen. I’ve put off buying a strat for going on 6 months. I only play PRS guitars. I like supporting a company whose founder is still alive and pushing the industry. My guess is this strat has many electrical peculiarities that don’t show themselves from a single picture with no explanation.

    Ya, the world can always use a better strat... and knowing Paul, this guitar's going to have it where it counts... I can't wait to try one, but I do hope they do a Maple fret board...

    Indeed, I wish the gear page community was a little more open minded.
