    Great thing about the DGT, it's a McCarty thickness, with basically the old PRS Regular neck and big frets.
    brilliant.

    Yeah, I would love to have it but I'm not gigging so I've dialed down my spending plus I've got something else in my sights.

    The one on eBay... $3K for a 20 year old guitar with no birds.

    You’d have to want one really bad.

    Super low #'s built...less than 10 at best info I had.

    If it's clean, it's a rare beast for sure.
    But you gotta love soapbars, and need a trem.

    And since 80's standards go for 5-6K with moons.....

    Edit: hah. Didn't realize that was you Mike.

    Indeed a rare bird (no pun intended), but Tony Venn wasn’t asking near that amount when he sold Grissom’s McTrem prototype. Granted no P-90’s, but I really wanted that one!

    You and me both. I’d shank a fool for that one. Better yet the Ely era 24.

    But some stuff has gotten out of control for sure. My days of a new PRS are over. Cruising reverb!

    One of my greatest friends in the world and my ex-manager. He’s not a forum guy.
