So, last week at NAMM, we took a side excursion to Wild Westy Guitars, home of muh man, DFD. I had told myself, no guitars this trip (amps, that's another story to be told at a later date), and I really meant it. After over 3 hours of drooling over a bunch of really nice stuff and watching my comrades (you know who you are) add to their arsenals, we were on our way out the door, when out of the corner of my eye, I saw one unusual shaped PRS case. Hmmmm, what's in that?

It would have been impossible to leave without it.
Excellent peripheral vision wins the prize.
Awesome.

Holy, holy, holy!! It would have weakened the strongest among us. What kind of wood is that? Played it yet?? (probably a stupid question....)

The guitar gods would have shot lightning at you if you left her behind. Great score

Wow!

I love hollow body jazzboxes. I like how they look, how they feel and how they sound. So for a second PRS, for me, a HB would be of choice.

And this one would spot on!

Beautiful
Congrats

Looks like zebrano (zebrawood). Is it?

That's fine! I am going to guess the wood is ziricote.

1st PS hollow body with top and back made from Macassar ebony, as is the fretboard. The middle of the body is mahogany, and the neck is figured mahogany. The bird inlays are etched mammoth ivory.

The Wild West is a dangerous place. Love the Macassar top! Looks absolutely amazing. Another stunner to your stable.

As one of those comrades, I can safely say that these pics do not do this beauty justice!!

Awesome!!

The look on 11Top's face when we opened the case was priceless!!

Curious, how many seconds did it take before you knew it was yours?

all that ebony must make for an immediacy to the tone I would think. Bet it sounds great.

He's not kidding, he ALMOST made it outta there without buying anything...

We all bought our stuff, and in the end, Steve pretty much walked out with the grand prize.

Wood thief!!
