Jester is a molester.
The OP is not me.
This thread should be dead as it's not what I said.

I do like the opaque colors. But, still LOVE stained figured wood. The opaque color on hippietim's PS Siggy is sick. I love that guitar.

I've always considered myself a connoisseur of figured wood. I can quote the indigenous name of any tone wood in the world on sight and between my home and office I am responsible for the deforestation of rainforest the size of Bolivia.

However, lately my taste has been changing. I am really starting to dig the opaque. Black, gold, sea foam. Man, they are badass! Last time I was at the wood library I found myself looking at a sick one piece quilted maple top thinking, "that would be perfect in white". And that is exactly how I ordered it.

Anyone else getting on the solid color band wagon with me.

That is some cold-blooded @#$%. But funny! :lol: Has anyone seen the original 11top?

I guess it's easy to "be over" figured wood when you've owned several dozen guitars of EACH POSSIBLE VARIATION OF FIGURED WOOD :lol:

I love the solid colors. I must, bc I paid the same price for a Goldtop SC58 as other dealers have the artist top ones. :? :)

Would like to see more PRSi avail in solid colors for sure. Nothing wrong with nice flame or quilt, but to me solid colors are more "rock n roll"!

Awwwww poor Steve though.... somebody gotta give him 11Top back!! He's getting on now, we don't want give him too much of a shock!!

:o Proof of alien abductions! :mrgreen:

I'm planning for a solid color PRS for my next acquisition. With my wife going back to school for her masters, and my youngest starting his first year of college, this fall; which means that I'm putting 4 people through college... It's not likely that I'll be acquiring anything very soon.

Thats cool that you support your family like that, I'm still paying for college myself and its tough, let alone 4 people.

The used market however is a wounderful thing for those who cannot snag something new right now :twisted: :lol:

Some of us have been on the solid color thing for a while. Definately in the minority on BAM though.

Should we start a "Free Steve's user name " collection? Donate the proceeds to the Johns Hopkins Foundation that PRS supports as a thank you for this new outlet? I'm in.

04-26-2012, 06:52 PM
Alright, I'll admit it. It was me.

My old BaM name was taken by one of the mods and as I was trying to decide what to use an evil idea occured to me. Thus, I became 11Top for a day. I hope everyone enjoyed it to some extent, I know I did.

I will be returning the name to Steve as soon as he calls me back.

I'm not really a connoisseur of anything; just a dude who loves figured tops. I love the flame on my SE because in the light in looks 3D, it has subtle crossgrains going in each direction, the cherry burst was faded just to my liking, and the complexity gives me more to look at. It makes me want to pick it up and play it. My (other brand guitar) has a solid blue color that sparkles very subtly in the light, and it's "nice". But I love me some flame! YMMV . . .

Steve,

I must say I am shocked and, yes, hurt by the accusation in your signature. Not only is it patently untrue, but it is in clear violation of Sections 1 and 3 of the Offical Forum Rules to which you/I expressly agreed and consented when you/I registered your username.

Remove the offending text immediately, or I warn you, I will be forced to call Hans and request that you be banned.

All humor aside (as if), it does raise an interesting question in my mind. Has there ever been an opaque Private Stock? If not, could there be and what would it look like?

Tone-wise, also...I used to sell PRS guitars and had a few different customers swear by the fullness of tone on the "solid" colors, as opposed to the figured tops...I guess one way to tell is A/B two exact model guitars , except for the finish...? A few of those were bolts and they really chimed beautifully...Could have been just the right combination of everything.
Of course, I just acquired a Seafoam swamp 513, and she really is beautiful!!!!!
