    Dagnabbit!
    I clicked on the link at home this morning before leaving for work, and I read part of it, and I was going to finish it here at work.
    Now I get a Page Not Found [ #404 ] error, then another page pops up in its place.
    What happened to the article?

    "What is the most expensive guitar you ever made?

    A double-necked Dragon and a specific Private Stock guitar took us a year to make."

    First time I've heard of a mega-PS being made. Does anyone have any other details on that one?

    Question: The aliens have come down and found the PRS time capsule. Inside it are three of the best guitars you've ever built. Which three guitars are in there?

    PRSH: Carlos Santana's wedding guitar that was given to him for his wedding that was made by Private Stock.

    I trust Paul Smith. That's why I'm here. That's why I pour my soul into this community.

    Agreed. It's funny too because , and this interview depicts it nicely, that you get guys on other unamed forums bashing PRS for being a rip off of this early gibsons and that early blah blah, and its like - if you'd just read an interview or talk to him he says it flat out. "I was inspired by this shape, this neck carve, those pickups and this bridge from all these different guitars to create my own and it's worked! "

    Just finished the article, very well written.
    I like how Carlos was blown away from the quality of the first SE Santana, and he thought it was Maryland made.
    The SEs are even better now than when that first model was introduced.

    I am still blown away when I play any of my SEs.
    So what is going to happen the first time I play my new 408?

    ooh you are in for a treat. As nice as my boys SE is my P22 is just in another league. Hard to explain but you will see when you get the 408. Just the whole feel of the instrument.

    This line is what stuck out for me:
    "Making a guitar that has the possibility of magic."

    Probably not the most interesting or ground breaking thing he said, but it's really what it all boils down to for me. I wouldn't play them, if I didn't feel that.
