That's excellent....Let me make print up some of my own checks and load my pen with disappearing ink as I think we can make a deal.its me.. granted Ive never built a guitar before.. but I told him I'd give it a go.. he's on board... Im guessing I can do it for about $250 a guitar
I think PRS has stated they’re not going to do signatures for anybody but huge names at this point. Like Davy Knowles is a personal friend of Paul’s (Paul literally gave him his personal guitar) and he won’t get a signature. Recent new signatures have been like Vernon Reid, Tremonti, Mayer, for example.Does PRS have a Telelike?
No. Perfect market niche for them.
Maybe they can actually do something new with one.
Yep, very much this. Put it this way: Eminence made a Josh Smith signature speaker, the JS-1250. I and a friend each both bought one and I love it. However, I have read very few comments anywhere on any forum about that speaker. Compare that to the insane buzz around the GA-SC64 that came out at the same time. Those who know about the JS love it. But again, niche player in a niche market. A JS sig guitar might suffer the same fate.They don’t want to promote older male ***niche*** blues players. I love Josh to death, but he’s a very online guitar nerd niche guy. My other guitar playing friends have never heard of him, let alone the general guitar buying public.
they still promote the heck out of Clapton, Beck, Eric Johnson, etc. Brent Mason just got a signature model a month ago. Bonamassa just got a signature amp from fender.
