Did anyone see the NAMM prototype PS Washburn Preacher guitar on Ebay. Does Washburn usually have a prototype made in Indonesia?

That surprised me too.  I'm seeing that more and more these days.  Keep in mind, however, that years ago we would have said the same thing about Korean guitars.

The true prototypes were played by Paul on his recent solo tour and were made in the USA custom shop.

There are basically 2 models, the import (PS7000/7200) and the US Custom Shop (PS9000/9200). I could be off a little on the model numbers.

Boogie Street Guitars is also doing a custom run done in the Korean facility that will be somewhere in between those two models in terms of accoutrements and price. You can read up on it here: http://www.boogiestreet.com/boogieboard/viewtopic.php?t=4510.

Its normal for a subcontractor to make and send prototypes before production begins, as the contracts have quality and spec constraints placed on them............
