as the PTC is not really helpful in selling brushed covers as replacement
there is just one chance - brush them by yourself!

this is absolutely not difficult, but you should act carefully not to rub through. :lol:
i took a coarse brushing sponge.....
the result looks perfect and it is a good alternative for shiny or "vintaged" covers.
please ask some questions if there are!

cheers

I have to say that I love brushed covers. I think it's a great move on the part of PRS.

Yours look great too. Congrats.

Looks great. Any tips on doing this? Brush in one direction, sides or top first? Am I over thinking this?

i brushed the sides first to get a feeling for.
then i went fore and backwards with the sponge
and let the middlefinger lead the distance on the sides.
i guess it it easier to brush in one direction.
brush first one half and turn the cover - care fore the edges!
good luck and let me see the result.
