If by "smash it over my head" you mean "gave me a big kiss, took me to dinner at my favorite restaurant, surprised me with a cake custom painted by my kid and conspired with Markie to jointly give me a 3-Mike-7 for my birthday" then yes, that's exactly what happened.

I am considering sending it to the PTC for an opaque top. We'll see how it looks in person when it gets here. Something like an Antique White with a subtle smokeburst would be cool.

Insane guitar Hans. "Yeah, I got to meet Venuti in New York, just before he died," says Kennedy. "He pulled out this Stradivarius and said, 'I bet my fiddle's f**king louder than yours.' It was, because he'd drilled a hole in it for a volume knob." Whatever you have to do to make it yours. I took this excerpt from a Nigel Kennedy interview I read years ago, your new purchase made me think of it.

So which side of you is cool with me installing a set of Paul's 28 pickups in it?

justmund
10-16-2012, 09:42 PM
To answer your question, both, it's only a (reversible) pickup swap. It does make me wonder about the differences between those pickups? Both very early 57/08s right?

and the other thing it makes me wonder, who pulled the pickups out of a Paul's 28???

I guess the thing that I'm on the fence about is a refin, and it's a pretty classic caretaker vs owner scenario... man doing that would definitely be an owner move!

Hopeful Sinner
10-16-2012, 10:29 PM
Wow, that is a super nice guitar!!! Good match for its new owner...

wilerty
10-16-2012, 11:16 PM
I never posted in the owner/caretaker thread ... but I will here. There are certain PRS guitars that I would not make non-reversable modifications to. The violin guitar is one of them. So was the Artist III that I used to own as was the Shootout McCarty, for example. You can play the heck out of one of these, respect it as much as possible, and change the pups, but when it is passed on, it should still be a violin guitar. It's just me, but for certain models I would always feel like a caretaker ... and an owner.

justmund
10-16-2012, 11:33 PM
You know what, this went through my head as well, and then I thought "well, what's IS a non-reversible modification"? A refin IS reversible, I mean look at the work the PTC did on the '86 swirl...

Who knows, in 100 years time when we're all dead and buried, there might be a thread on the PRS Forum "PTC Project - Violin Guitar Antique White Smokeburst"...

...who pulled the pickups out of a Paul's 28???
Paul gave 4 loose sets of Paul's 28 pickups to a dealer (Teddy at Make'N Music) at a NAMM show a few years back. Teddy offered a set with the purchase of a PRS guitar. I bought two guitars, Chris Losacco bought one, and I can't recall who got the 4th set. All 4 sets have passed through my hands at some point. I had a buyer for my last set (last week) at $1500. It seems a little fate stepped in. I still have them. So be it.
