Jo men det finns förvånansvärt få! PRS är för dyrt i sverige! Rapè lingon, det e nymodigheter det :D inte riktigt kommit överrens med "smaksatt" snus. Maybe I should have asked around first haha but i just bought everything original directly from PRS, should be arriving any day now.

Nice!

Would it be possible for you to post a close up pic of the tremolo uprout?
I'm going to do that to my CE24 and would love to see what PRS does in detail.

Just got done sanding the headstock and there were actually a couple of cracks in the wood under all that paint. That's just bad quality control right there!

Oh, man! That looks like a lot of fun right there! I would white back that sucker in a second! (or ten days)

Perfect!
Thank you! I never could tell if it was recessed under the leading edge of the bridge and now I know that it isn't.

Now to make a template and fire up the router.

It was! I had forgotten how therapeutic it could be to refinish giutars. But now comes the thing I dread, sanding down the clearcoat on the veneer without burning through it...

Jo men det finns förvånansvärt få! PRS är för dyrt i sverige! Jag reser till Sverige nästan varje sommar, för att hälsa på min familj. Kanske nästa gång, jag skall ta med några PRS som jag kan sälja.

I wonder how thick that veneer is.
I would be afraid of sanding right through it. :o

Just a quick update for you guys.
Today I'll be taking a look at the trem backplate. Those of you that wondered about recessing the knobs, it is possible. But the tricky part is to get the correct depth and carve you would need to sand down the inside of the control cavity, cut a piece of maple to the rightsize and glue it in the top of the control cavity. Then you could recess the knobs without any more problems than the fact that you would loose the veneer in those places. As this is a bigger job I will be leaving the top unrecessed and focusing more on other things.

So I've been really busy this past week and not really had much time for my project. Also my new HBII just arrived so i had to spend some time with that as well. Here is the latest on the Tremonti Cstom project:
The trem plate has been routed for(really this is just stupid not to do in the factory stage imo!)

Heres a before shot of the headstock
