    Back in October at the Guitarlington 2015 Guitar Show, one of my Friends had this Modern Eagle sitting in his booth....
    In the immortal words of my wife Beverly Elaine "Really, YOU need another Guitar"
    *personal disclaimer* I think these BRW Modern Eagles are today's best value of all the used PRS Gear on the blocks...
    I tried all weekend to ignore it, tried to stay focused in my own booth and prayed no one would take it home.....
    FINALLY. months later I just could not stand it anymore...It was still available
    Merry Christmas Beverly Elaine!!
    Here is hoping she likes HER Christmas Present!
    btw, I have a backup plan if she returns to me... hehehe

    Those original FBJ MEs are one of the all-time classic PRS models.

    *personal disclaimer* I've owned an original ME (not FBJ) since 2004. And I played Paul's personal guitar which was the forerunner of the ME back in 1998. That's the guitar that put PRS back on my radar after a 1989 Custom tried and failed to become my main guitar.

    How sweet! That is the gift that keeps on giving!!

    That is a very similar story as to how I was allowed/able to buy my '91 CU24. My wife said "You have to buy this, otherwise I will and you'll have to wait for Christmas to play it again". Like you, being a smart husband and all, I bought the guitar and never looked back.

    Unreal colour, Congrats. A FBJ PRS is initially what piqued my interest in "The Brand".
    I can't believe that I now personally have two PRS (3 in the house) but neither of mine are FBJ ?

    This situation will have to be rectified ! I'd like a ME but they're mucho $$$ in Oz.

    I had that same plan when I bought my girlfriend some lingerie. In my experience it has been better to get them what they really want... and to get the lingerie in your size.

    Those are great guitars and the faded blue on this one is perfect.
