    I saw these up close and personal on a tour in October. Very cool! I'd throw down with it, for sure!

    Hmmm...a classic PRS instrument...'76 design built using 2018 standards and QC? This is a total win!!

    Sorry, but I don’t understand the point of polls like this one.

    Interesting video!

    I tend to go for Paul’s latest-greatest technology, but I can certainly understand why these would be of substantial interest to a lot of people.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if these sell out quickly.

    Brett wanted to do it bad enough that he searched out some of the parts on eBay. He is certainly pushing some barriers, but with a traditional vibe. Perhaps jfb and I will kidnap you and take you in.

    See above. I’m not certain which bits Brett tracked down. I’m pretty sure he sourced the bridge.

    I love the look of it. I wouldn’t pay anywhere close to that price but I think it’s a really cool guitar

    Pretty sure you're right about that. Shawn mentioned that they had to search long, and far, for them.

    Kinda sad that there will be only 6 of these. After watching the video I can understand why. I was hoping this could be the permanent PRS version of the Gibson re-issues, or at least a new retro model. :(

    I think it’s a very cool run. I’d love to own one for the historical value. I don’t like the headstock much, but that’s not really the point. It’s about as close to a birth year PRS as I could get. Bravo to Brett for getting Paul to agree to recreate these.

    Does Frampton still have the original?

    Would I rock it? Absolutely.
    Would I pay sixteen five for one? That's another story.

    Not for me. The headstock has "tuning problems" built in. Paul fixed that issue decades ago.
