    Ha, I knew immediately it was Ish Guitars. Cool shop but their multiscale PRS specs are crazy. It's far from their first though.

    They’ve build at least 4 now. Pricey. Hopefully the cnc and jigs trickle down.

    Actually 12 isn’t bad at all. Brb checking bank account.

    Pretty cool overall, but I don't dig that finish either.

    That's cool. I just never like when the headstock cap doesn't follow the nut. Seeing that bit of fretboard behind it bugs me It's the main reason I don't buy most production multiscales even though they're probably pretty cool otherwise.

    How did they make the tree grow so that a cross section looks like Antarctica

    It's cool and all, but you would have to be out of your damn mind to pay that amount of money for one. Especially with the amount of multi scale options out there, doesn't make any sense to me.

    That top is pretty amazing - looks like a 1700s map of the world or something. Obviously PRS instruments at this level are for the wealthy only, but it seems pretty wild to imagine paying that much for any one guitar.

    I am sure the guitar's multiscale would be super useful for the person who ordered it. I can't stop thinking about the fact that it reminds me of other brands (ie. Kiesel, Ormsby) and it just does not look like a PRS.

    Oh...oh sweetie....do you mean C0? You mean C0 here, right? :lol:

    I know he's right here I just got a kick out of Drop C being 'crazy low.' I actually like the idea of a subtle 1" fan or so, and honestly I could get behind that becoming a new standard- especially on a sixer. It especially suits a PRS.

    And it's kind of strange that it has to be said in every thread, but obviously a Private Stock PRS is for those that don't need to ask to see the price tag, and buy it because they want a multiscale PRS, not just X spec on a guitar. That being said...man I dislike that finish. Headstock came out great though, and the spalted tuners were a nice touch. I appreciate what they were going for here and it was definitely well executed, but that look is just suuuuper not for me.

    --
    Also interesting that he claims his dealership has exclusive rights to multiscale orders....wasn't that first green one a Japanese dealer order?

    I've been following the multiscale PRS saga for a while, I'd be pretty stoked on a 1-inch fan for a sixer as well.

    Anyways, I've seen multiscale PRS 7 strings, usually with BKPs appear in Japan + the one they had at NAMM, but I think Ish has rights to the six strings - I think the one of the main things he/the dealer paid for is retooling the PRS 85/15 pickups with an angle. I really hope we get these at the Core price point/more normal aesthetics eventually. Here's a few more of his:
