    If I had to build a Private stock, mine would be a bit weird. It would have the CE custom 24 specs, bolt on neck, flamed maple or just an all rosewood neck with a brazillian board on it. Buckeye burl or a 10 top and a swamp ash body. The neck would have the same carve and finish as well.

    Strangely enough, though I have four PS' bought new, I only spec'd one of them, my acoustic. The rest were PS model runs. Paul specs 'em better than I can.

    I fully realize that I have no imagination. :p

    I used to think tiger's eye one-piece tops were awesome, and owned a PS Archtop spec'd with one-piece maple top and back. PS Eagle at the 12th fret. Ebony board. No other fret markers, save for abalone side dots. Artist pickups. Despite the ebony board and maple top/back, the guitar was deep and resonant because of the large hollow body. The ultimate jazz box. And I SOLD it because I couldn't justify owning such a beautiful guitar with my puny chops. That, and because I needed to simplify my lavish lifestyle because my savings were being depleted at a quick pace.

    Some years later, owning 3 PRS guitars, none of which is a core, but all do what I need and then some. My flirtation days with PS are no more. Living within my means is more of a necessity than dreaming about guitars, that could only be meant for folks whose income exceeds their good reasoning.

    Based on what I currently own, my current dream guitar if I could spec one, would be a Modern Eagle V semi-hollow with Piezo, Rosewood neck and a Dragon Inlay. I would love to own any/all the previous Dragons too...

    My dream guitar would probably be something quite different to what I already own. I don't see the point of buying another 594 or Hollowbody II for example - even if a PS version may be that bit better than the one I have, I would want it to offer something I don't have first and foremost and the MEv is so versatile, if I am spending that much money, having all those options in one seems like a no brainer....

    As someone who lived most of my adult life living below my means: it might mean earning more than my rational brain felt I needed to spend.

    or maybe it was just another cheap shot.

    Sorry. Meant to say dreaming about luxury items is for folks whose income exceeds their good reasoning. (Read: Sometimes luxury isn't a matter of "When can buy this?" it's more a matter of "Who am I kidding? No way could I afford this, and still be on good terms with my wife.")

    No, you were correct initially. (Have since corrected my words to read more easily...)

    I actually have what I want, with no private stock. They’ve made amazing guitars that I’m very happy to play. Now if I could just get that former creole Girlfriend back.....................

    Honestly, if PRS could clone my 94 Custom 22 in Singlecut form, that would be great.
    Color, figure, Dragon Is, Phase I tuners, Widefat neck, MOP birds...Singlecut body and electronics.

    I totally feel that way: know exactly what I like but have no imagination with a blank slate.

    Lucky for me, one of the upcoming Brian's wood library MEV builds comes like 90% of the way to how I would spec a PS MEV (swamp ash/maple neck) so I had to jump aboard.

    I think this answer changes often, but here's my current wishlist:

    A lot of the dealer WL runs are awfully cool. I snagged one of Jack Gretz' McCarty Trems, and it's awesome, on the level of my PS models in many ways.
