No, not your pasty and hairy backside, I'm talking about the trend of PRS guitars with white backs! I absolutely love this look, I am pretty sure if I ever won the PS lottery I would have to go with a blanc back with a gold top.

PTC could do that for you very easily and quite affordably compared to a PS - just saying ;)

I agree though, I really like the look.

Looks nice on that guitar in the OP. Nice clean lines.

The swamp ash tree was invented for this look.

I think white backs look great on certain colors. That one at the top is awesome.

Killer group, Steve! I agree - Swamp Ash + White Wash = Perfection.

I say, with no bit of exaggeration, that these are some of the most beautiful guitars I have ever seen. I apologize because I am brand new to the world of PRS guitars (played my first one just a few days ago. Don't own one ... yet ;). But are these actually available? Themike mentioned "PTC". What's PTC? I'm ready to be educated in all the nuances of this beautiful brand :)

WOW- that is truly stunning I love the whole look of the Guitar, the matt finish the gold and silver parts the stained maple and white back, just wow....

I would love one! My problem is I don't like white against revealed maple binding. The one in the OP that has black binding would be amazing.

mine is a alpine white on mahogany, but the swamp ash back in white ash is killer and a classic for me.

See my Al D one-off thread... there was a faded charcoal Al D at the Dallas show, faded charcoal, but really hints of purple in there too, white back... Basically a 57/08 equipped McTrem in a one-off color with a white back. It looked very good.

Viva la Blanco!

I caught a peek of this in the pedalboard thread and feel in love. So nice.

Absolutely 100% agree!! I would love a whitewash SAS! I wonder if the PTC would refinish an SAS in whitewash or if they still cosider that exclusively the realm of private stock? hmmm....

Charcoal with white back is killer. Do want.
