    I love those guys too. Times were absolutely crazy back then. Ask Tim if he remembers "bitchboy" Ben getting his eyebrows singed off in the paintshaker incident. Then ask Geoff about the cherry toner fountain! Or Tim's morning cartoons on the loudspeaker! Definitely good times..

    Awesome! Love the cutout for reference! We had fine line tape back then but it was all paper mask and plain old masking tape after fineline for prep.

    Hey back then Ted and Carlos were THE heavies when it came to PRS endorsements. I stained Carlos' tri-color too! Kevin Murphy did the first one but somebody got the color scheme flipped upside down on him so I did the next one. That was before I moved to the spray room and Geoff , Mark, Chris and Norman taught me spray finishing.

    This is the guitar Kev stained. Note the flag color is upside-down! Yes Carlos owned this guitar..for about the full five minutes it took to box it up and send it back! The "B"" stamp on the back of the headstock is not to denote black back, that info was on the master list of serial numbers that department lead men kept. The "B" was a grade denoting a factory second. This guitar is an oddity fer sure and probably worth the money just for the story!

    It's crazy... I remember hearing the story about this "backwards" guitar only to finally see it pop up for sale this year. It would make a killer collectors guitar! (cough) Markie (cough) Hans (cough)

    Yeah the myth comes to life! It wasn't Kevins fault the stain order had been written in reverse. It is a miracle however that the guitar survived as a second...usually it would've been "Townsend style" smashed by some lucky dog on the wood room wall!

    Oh and that guitar is probably an '86 or '87 model as I'm pretty sure I'd left the stain bench by mid '87.
