    Which is it? I'm torn between my HBII and 594, the others can burn...

    I’m willing to be medium rare to get a few more

    Yep, getting the boys out first. (The dogs! Get your mind out of the gutter. Who does that???? :eek:) Then, even as crazy heavy as PRS guitars are in their cases, I know I can get two in each hand. So one trip gets every PRS except the Mira.

    This would be close I suppose, owing to its ultra rare solid African Blackwood neck and inherent tone. Paul was on record saying the African Blackwood neck blank is the rarest timber/tone wood he’s seen in his long career and he’d only ever got hold of two pieces.

    Oh hell I’m just gonna burn.

    Humm, tough one...
    If it were this morning I'd say my recent Aqua Violet Glow CU24-08, but that's an easy one since it's the only PS in the house.
    By tonight I would have to choose between that and a Paul's 85. The CU24-08 would still win, most likely.
    In a few weeks, once my Bats in Flight custom build comes back from PRS' tech center, then that's be tougher but the CU24-08 would still win as that Bats in Flight is pretty easy to redo.

    At the end of the day though, I'd grab the pets well before I even think about a guitar.
    However pretty those guitars are, it's just wood.

    Paul’s 85? :eek:

    I will be looking forward to the NGD thread!

    Let's call it a tentative investment. That said if the damn thing feels and sounds as good as I was told it does I might just end up playing it regularly.

    If I can only save one it's going to be the Mira.

    They are all insured for replacement value. I'll save the wife and dog.

    As crazy as it sounds, I’d grab the S-style partscaster I assembled from parts sourced from various vendors. It has everything I like and nothing
    I don’t.

    PRS quality is so consistent, I can replace any of my PRSi pretty easily.

    The 89 CE. The others are easier to replace

    If I could only save a PRS it would be my PS 594. Understated as far as Private Stock guitars go but it's a killer playing guitar. The reality is I'd probably be grabbing my 55 Tele because it's not very cost effective to replace vintage guitars.

    Since the rules say "one", it would be the Westie

    I'm strangely attracted to the Westie which is odd considering I've never even played one. It's one of the few guitars that I really desire.

    Fantastic guitars. I never wanted one, or a Santana, until I played Sergio’s White Westie. Ten minutes and I was hooked.

    Laskin because he might be old enough that I couldn’t make it to the top of the wait list to get a new one built.

    I'll grab my Santana Brazilian, and send the wife and children back in to get the other three. If they're quick enough on their feet, their burns should be minor.
