    I'd take it.. without the switches and the middle pup. Always loved the F holes on PRS

    Heard rumors of a John Mayer PRS around the time of NAMM. Looks awesome.

    H-S(H)-H, Active pre-amp, 24 frets and a locking trem. Not what I expected but I want one anyway!

    I like it (bar the F hole). I'd buy seven of these with my millions of dollars I won't ever make..

    Looks sick in the promo shot where the pickups all look black...not so great when I scrolled down and the lighting changed to reveal the HB covers were nickel.

    I like the number of frets :lol: The rest of it pushes 0 of my buttons tbh. But hey, I'm not a PRS guy.

    That switch configuration is atrocious, but the finish looks beautiful.

    This thing is stunning. i love it. But the many controls make me dizzy. I wonder what tone you cannot get out of this thing. I can imagine Paul's smile while thinking: I told you man, we can make you anything. And you are going to love it. hahahahah.:agreed:

    It's a great looking guitar, like most all PRS, but John Mayer = Fender strat to me.

    I wonder if they are going to only make like 100 of these or wait for preorders? I mean 11,000 dollars is probably only collectors looking to buy this thing and showcase it, not really a "players guitar" IMO. The demo video I saw sounds awesome, but I would want to play around with it to see how versatile it really is.

    If only I had an extra 11,000 dollars.

    Nice guitar, needs 2 F Holes instead of one.

    I mean it has 3 pickups and coil splits for each individual one, how much more versatility could it be lacking? You don't have to try it to know that you can get a ridiculous amount of sounds out of it.

    Private Stocks are almost never "player's guitars", they're made to show off the skills of the PS team and collectors usually house them and either let them sit or play them sparingly.

    PS guitars that are commissioned by buyers are always "player guitars". Limited edition PS models built to be sold as such are the "works of functional art" you're referring to.

    This guitar is interesting, but not for me. Which is fine - it was spec'd by John Mayer, and he likes it :yesway:.

    That statement couldn't be more wrong there are plenty of guys over at the PRS forum that have PS and gig them, As well as a number of top touring guitarist that play PS. They are guitars meant to be played not hung on a wall and behind glass.

    And i get that you said almost never, But Paul himself will tell you they are all meant to be played and not just hung and looked at.

    Meant to, but I definitely feel like in application the majority of them are sitting and being played very rarely. I know several artists do perform with theirs and even customers, but that doesn't speak for the majority.
