    Wanting a PRS is what brought me to kit building. Too damn expensive to buy. Bought a relatively expensive PRS style kit from Alibaba with a 2-3 cm thick flame maple cap. Then I realised that I had none of the skills required to actually build a good guitar. That's how I found Pitbull and the PRS-1H. I now have 6 kits to build. . . and still haven't finished any.

    You are not alone KuanJB...but if I might offer perspective.....

    In progress Builds
    ST-1 for a mate (This is actually progressing)
    SMST "Reverse Hendrix" (This has stalled)
    ESR-1E FrankenReso (This is about to get some colour)
    IB-Freebie (This has to be stripped down as the basswood body has some issues)
    Cliche Black LP (GAAAAAHHHH!)
    Silent Baritone Build (Still sanding)

    Waiting on shelf:
    FV-Custom (have not yet touched it)
    ST Custom, Unwanted kit (Damned Igor!)
    IB-5 Custom, Unwanted kit (Damned Igor again!)

    Add to that the raw timber for probably another 5 scratch builds. (This was all me)

    You're really not doing too bad!

    When you think about it FW, your just doing the community a solid justice by ensuring the unwanted kits have a caring home. It's really the right thing to do haha

    I've got 3 on the go right now and I had to excersise restraint this morning while I watched an IB-5 count down the last seconds on eBay . Tick..no..tick...no...tick.. MAYBE..tick..NO!tick..

    Just saw this build on Facebook. Not quite as carved as a PRS.

    This is exactly what i'm looking for. I admit would love the cut away in the bottom horn (especially given my lack of woodworking ability / tools) but would settle for this for sure. With a few binding colour options and top options this would be awesome.
