    An easier way, if it has birds, is old birds (i.e. not outline birds) = Brazilian Rosewood.

    It's a Violin Guitar as it has the colour, fancy maple top and a flamed maple neck, which is maybe more violin-like than the originals.

    How it affects the originals is interesting - does the...

    No word on pricing, all I've found is the info above. No knots as it's not a Collection guitar, which now have knots exclusively.

    It looks like it's a fixed number run built by PS, similar to...

    New PS Violin Guitar - any more details?

    I see PRS are releasing two new versions (SC and DC) of the Violin Guitar, with what looks like a highly flamed maple neck in place of the pernambuco of the original. Can anyone share any more...
  11. Shootout McCartys - did they get any "special tweaks"?

    Hey folks,

    I've been reading up on the Shootout McCartys recently and they seem to be universally praised. I know there were a few runs:

    * Original 6 for the 2010 Dallas Show (2x57/08s,...

    Davy's #1 guitar has a rosewood neck, but he has mahohany necked guitars too. Simon tends to always use mahogany from what I've seen, but he does have an MEQ.

    I have 59/09s in my ME1. I would go for 57/08s (bluesy) or 59/09s (rockier) in yours.

    The MODCATs change over time, new things are added etc. The website tools are always a little behind.

    The decodes I did for you earlier are correct as far as I know.

    That's not the output of the pickups themselves, but something to do with the wiring schematic. I haven't worked out what yet though!

    To my ears 408s are punchier in the singing mids than all other pickups I've had, and push an amp that bit more. Similar to adding "frown" curve on a EQ pedal to a regular humbucker.
