    Well its been a long drawn out process but she's here!

    Little back story:

    I wanted a Quilted Charcoal Cherry Burst PRS with a flamed maple neck. Really wanted a singlecut. So I went to my local dealer and ordered an artist package to my exact specs. Everything was a go!

    But the next day they called and said we have a problem. You cant order quilt in an Artist package. So I would have to go Private Stock. But that's way out of my price range. I talked to a couple of friends that have a LOT of knowledge on PRs guitars. Apparently there was a Wood Library run of these. I was told a total of 5 were made. All went to Asia/Europe.

    So after months of looking I tracked one down. In Hong Kong! Is everything I wanted except its a double cut. I could live with that!

    I have a good friend that lives in Hong Kong (Santiago Alvarez) so I had him go check it out for me. He said it was perfect! I bought it and now need to figure out how to get it home to the USA.

    I have another friend who is a pilot. I asked him if there was any chance he was going to Hong Kong. Lucky for me he was in 3 weeks. So he picked it up and brought it home!

    Sorry for the long story.

    So here she is! I think its one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen!
