Yeah, i probably worded it wrong, but my concern is that on their website at the moment, the star sapphire is (unless my eyes are playing tricks on me) a different shape to the guitar they built for Andre.
Its not the PRS custom shape at all, theyve changed the outline.

They have different variations of of their Sapphire Star. The one pictured is the S101. When I talked to them about the guitar I wanted I just sent them a pic of what I was looking for.

Thats been around a couple of weeks, its much faster than the crappy thai one.
Theres one under construction too, id guess a uk distributer.

They wouldnt build me a PRS type with a rosewood neck. So much for 'custom' shop.

Still dont kow how much the bolt-ons are. I presume they are decent bit cheaper than the set necks?

So why not buy a... erm... PRS with a rosewood neck??!!
Custom shop means just that... CUSTOM, BESPOKE, ONE OFF, MADE TO ORDER. Also there are certain major manufacturers who have strict policies in place to deal with "Custom Shops" who copy their guitars... PRS is one of them!
Atlas used to build stunning PRS copies but I guess they got "warned of their mistake" at some point.
