I was buying strings today and having somebody keep a guitar for me that I plan on buying later this week, and I came across two PRS seven-strings. They looked gorgeous. One was a marbled dark purple and the other was a marbled dark brown-green. But then... I saw the prices.

At the current exchange rate, the one was $16,020. Yeah... especially ironic since the PRS to the left of the sevens was $2200 and the one beside it was around $1900.

Gorgeous looking guitars and I'm sure they play and sound great, but... $16,000?? :eek:

holy shit, that's nuts. i'd love to own a PRS 7, but those prices are not even worth the discussion. that's plain ridiculous even for a private stock instrument. i would have expected those to be in the 4000-5000$ range, which would still be fucking insane

I'd be more than happy with a PRS SE 7-string singlecut. There is a poll on ss.org about a possible run, and the winning options are maple neck, 25,5" scale and ebony board :lol:

I didn't know he played PRS. :confused: I've only ever seen him playing Ibanezes.
He recently switched over. Dumped all his Ibanez guitars as well. I can understand why he left Ibanez since he wanted to play whatever guitar he wanted (Gibsons and Fenders and an Alvarez Dana Scoop for all I fuckin' know) and a PRS endorsement would let him do that. I guess he wanted a clean break from Ibanez so he sold most of them off.

He only sold two of them IIRC.

PRS Private Stock prices are insane. Having said that Shannon knows a guy with a P.S. 7 and says it's the best thing he's played. Still a stupid price though.

Incidentally, from that goolge image search I spot the inline PRS 7 headstock looks awful

I do not believe in the slightest, that thing is a PRS headstock, it looks more like a BRJ would, but extremely retarded :lol:
