Between copying over info from the old place, to people submitting new pics, this should be a nice addition to our new home. :)

I'll kick it off with the 20th Anniversary Birds originally available in the 2005 Anniversary editions, with some spillover into 06 and 07.

http://baimun.home.comcast.net/~baimun/prs8.jpg

Up close you can see how the "whisps" were a different color than the "birds in flight".

Next we have the "Old Birds" or "Original Birds" seen here on a flame maple board from a Swamp Ash Special.

And the types of birds at each inlay from the PRS FAQ:


Peregrine falcon
Marsh hawk
Ruby throated hummingbird
Common tern
Coopers hawk
Kite
Sparrow landing
Storm petrel
Hawk landing
Screech owl on a branch (24-fret models only)

And a nice pic of a Moon inlay.

The most common materials for etched birds are gold or mammoth. Gold is a very expensive option, Mammoth less so. Seems they dig them out of the Siberian tundra all the time, so the material is not that expensive.

Cool, thanks. I know mammoth ivory itself is surprisingly plentiful, I guess I just reckoned the actual time spent etching them would drive the cost up quite significantly - how much I suppose depends on whether they are done by hand or by machine, anyone know the answer to that?

I don't know the cost of etching or how they do it, but since no one else has posted a shot of the plain mammoth ivory, here is the un-etched mammoth ivory inlay on my McCarty Singlecut taken when it arrived at Jack's shop; I like the simplicity and natural beauty of it. The wingtips of the Eagle don't appear to be etched, they appear to be a different piece of ivory, but honestly that detail is a guess on my part:

Wait, I now have a 24.5 inch scale PS-built electric guitar with a maple binding, nitro finish, and Ted headstock. And a paisley case.

Which means you've either influenced me, or I've somehow Seen The Light. ;)

Did you check out the clip? The guitar sounds SO good.

I'm thinking of getting that remastered set in high resolution from HDTracks to use in my studio as reference material, funny you mention it! But honestly, it's great to see your moniker pop up. I hope all has been peachy in your world!

I've always referred to these as "Firebirds", not sure what PRS officially calls them. second choice after a blue guitar would be one with a finish that was created in the pits of hell itself with these birds...

The new Violin birds are also great.

Mammoth Ivory is my favorite - been that way since I first saw it on Jamie's PS HB at one of the unofficial PRS forum gatherings almost 15 years ago.

Also makes me want one of those hammer of the Gods PS SC's...

They are not too shabby!! ;)
